Britney Spears' sons call
Britney Spears has been told she can speak to her children on the telephone.
The 'Toxic' singer - who hasn't seen her two sons Sean Preston, two, and 16-month-old Jayden James for more than three weeks after she refused to return them to ex-husband Kevin Federline - is forbidden from visiting her children indefinitely, meaning her only access to them is via phone calls.
Court documents released yesterday (28.01.08) revealed: "Spears is to have telephonic contact with the minor children. All prior orders remain in full force and effect."
Meanwhile, Britney's manager and "very good friend" Sam Lufti has confirmed the 26-year-old singer has seen a psychiatrist for her "mental issues".
Following a conversation with Lufti, 'The View' host Barbara Walters said: "Britney is suffering from what Lufti describes as mental issues which are treatable. He said that she has been to a psychiatrist and that she, I assume, is starting some kind of treatment.
"She has been having mood swings. She's been having trouble sleeping, and also she is in touch with her mother - because we had heard she wasn't - and her mother has been very supportive of whatever Britney is going to do."
The 'Piece of Me' singer is believed to be bipolar and reportedly has multiple personality disorder.
Her legal team are hoping her visitation rights will be reinstated if she undergoes psychiatric treatment.
Britney and Lufti are said to have rowed over her alleged mental problems yesterday (28.01.08).
He reportedly told her she must see a psychiatrist and talk to her parents. He also told her to stop seeing Adnan Ghalib, her photographer boyfriend.
A source said: "Britney had a huge blow out with Sam at about 6pm as they were driving back to her house. She stormed out of his car in tears just in front of the gate and sat on the side of the road sobbing her heart out."
Britney's parents - who were in Los Angeles visiting Britney's sons Sean Preston and Jayden James last night - arrived at her house at 9.07pm and waited outside the gates in their car. Britney refused to speak to them and left after Adnan collected her.
