Britney Spears and her mom have had many ups-and-downs. That is one of the inevitable curses of being a stage mom. But many people were publicly adamant that Lynne Spears exploited her daughter–especially in her childhood and her teens. Like all “good” parents, Lynne wrote a book about her daughter’s ordeals called Through The Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.

Lynne  told the Daily Mail:

“When [Britney’s] life was such a success, what did she need me for? And when things took a turn for the worse, I was out, because other people were closer to her, and with her day and night. Being a mother, you can’t help but have regrets about what you did and didn’t do for your kids, and I’m not different.”

“I would over-compensate and I tried to make things seem happier when my kids were growing up, because I was aware of the deficit. Maybe I didn’t give her the skills to handle the hard times. Maybe I sheltered her too much from the realities, and sometimes that’s not a good thing.”

Do you think Britney Spears’ relationship with her mom is “Toxic?”
