Britney Spears has been keeping quiet recently and out of the spot light. But there are still rumors flying about. Here's a compiled list of all the recent gossip:
1) Britney is trying to adopt a pair of Chinese twins. People are saying that Britney is in the final stages of adopting twins as a result of losing custody of her two boys. She feels empty without them and maybe wants a second chance at motherhood. You can read the full story at http://www.smh.com.au/news/people/spears-to-adopt-chinese-twins--report/2007/11/26/1195975912015.html
2) There may be a new love interest in Britney's life- a waiter at Mirabelle named Michael Marchand. Although both deny a relationship, they have been spotted together. Britney's friends say that it's just a fling but who knows, maybe it'll turn into something more.
3) Britney Spears was caught driving without a valid California license and now her lawyer is saying that she is being treated unfairly. The court is considering a 24 month probation and Britney's lawyer says that the court has never treated such a violation so harshly before. Britney's lawyer is fighting to get Britney no probation at all. But this video clip of Britney running three stop signs doesn't help her case:http://perezhilton.com/?p=9404
4) Britney's Blackout album came in at a disappointing number 23 on the Billboard chart, selling only 51,520 copies. She didn't even make the top 20. Comeback? Not so much.

Britney and Her Kids
The custody battle for Sean Preston and Jayden James continues between Britney and Kevin Federline. Presently, Kevin is winning the battle. Britney is only allowed to see her kids once a week under the court's supervision and is mandated to take random drug tests. You would think that if Britney really wanted her kids back, she would do everything she could to get them back. The main argument that the court has against her is that she's not a responsible mother. Rather than trying to prove them wrong and making sure that all her actions support her claim of being a good mother, Britney does the opposite.
Britney has been criticized for feeding her kids unhealthy food like chips and giving her kids soda. In "Peoples" magazine, they said that Britney would ask her kids to get her cigarettes and she would refer to them as "mommy's lollipops". Her parenting coach says that Britney doesn't know when to feed or change her kids, and when she's allowed to visit her kids, she takes them shopping with her rather than spending quality time with them. Her partying lifestyle has also been questioned in terms of being a responsible mother. The list goes on and on.
Britney had just made headlines again as a result of her bad driving skills. Her driving history consists of driving over a few paparazzi and deputy officer's feet and driving while holding Sean Preston in her lap. Now, Britney has even more to add to her driving record. In the last week alone, she has been photographed and videotaped committing multiple traffic infractions — running a red light and making an illegal turn, and crossing double yellow lines to overtake another vehicle — while either talking or texting on her cell phone. All this while her kids are in the backseat. In response to these incidents, Kevin Federline has just asked the court to prevent Britney from driving her kids. This definitely doesn't help Britney's case in gaining custody of her kids again. Here's a picture that mocks Britney's parenting skills:
