Britney Spears' family has joined forces with Kevin Federline's family to support her. The 'Toxic' singer's stint in rehab has brought the two families closer - despite the couple's impending divorce - to support Britney and care for her two young sons. A source told People magazine: "Everyone is making comments how sad it is that it took this to get everyone together. There was a lot of distance between the families but it seems now they all have a common goal, which is to help Britney get better." Kevin has been looking after 18-month-old Sean Preston and six-month-old Jayden James, with the help of both families, since his estranged wife checked into rehab.
Meanwhile, Britney is reportedly not coping well in rehab. She is allegedly frequently breaking house rules at Malibu's Promises rehab facility. A source told Us Weekly magazine: "She's been getting in tons of trouble. She has been cautioned for being on her cell phone and has even left the centre to go shopping." The 25-year-old is allegedly angry with her family for saying she needs to get sober, and believes she does not have a drug or alcohol problem. The source added: "Britney is angry at her family and her manager for pressuring her to enter the program. She believes she is suffering from postpartum depression and does not think she has an alcohol or drug problem." Since entering the clinic, Britney has been seen reading Brooke Shields' book 'Down Came the Rain' about the actress' own experience with postpartum depression following the birth of her first daughter, Rowan Francis Justin Timberlake wants to help ex-girlfriend Britney Spears make a music comeback. The 'SexyBack' singer's producer Timbaland has begged Justin to help him rebuild Britney's once illustrious career. Timbaland, 34, told Entertainment Weekly magazine: "I feel her pain, it really bothers me. I'm the type of person who tries to save the world. I just want to take her away, go overseas, and work it out. I asked Justin, 'How would you feel about me working with Britney?' I had to ask him that. I said, 'Would you do it with me? He said he would. Britney's just got to be serious. I just want to hold her hand. I want her to be in my camp, to be around Justin. I need Justin to talk to her. Help her, please!"
Britney, 25, and Justin, 26, met while starring in Disney TV show 'The Mickey Mouse Club' and dated for four years until 2002. Britney's label Jive Records are yet to comment on Timbaland's musical lifeline. The 'Oops. I Did It Again' singer is currently being treated at Malibu's Promises rehab centre for drug and alcohol problems. Shortly before she was admitted she shaved her head and allegedly attempted suicide.
