Britney Spears' mother is to make her controversial memoir into a movie.
Lynne Spears is in talks with Hollywood studios who are desperate to win the rights to her tell-all book 'Through The Storm' - which details Britney's recent troubles and her other daughter Jamie Lynn's teen pregnancy.
A source said: "Lynne's pitching the book around to studios. She even says she wants Julia Roberts to play her. It's insane!
Britney is reportedly furious at the plans - which could see 'The House Bunny' star Anna Faris play her - and has accused her mother of cashing in on her problems.
The 'Womanizer' singer, who is set to start promoting her new album 'Circus', is said to be on the verge of disowning her mother because of the proposed film.
The source added to Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Britney is telling friends, 'That woman doesn't even seem like my mother any more. She was overheard saying, 'She will do anything to get herself more famous and make more money off my name. It's just unreal. If I could cut her out my life completely, I would.' "
In the book, Lynne claims Britney began drinking alcohol at 13, lost her virginity at 14 and first took drugs at 15.
It also covers her failed marriage to Kevin Federline - with who she has two sons, Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two - and gives the lowdown on her breakdown earlier this year which saw her sectioned and lose visitation rights to her children.
