Britney Spears urged to join Lindsay Lohan in rehab

Arizona's the place for her, say pals

Britney Spears' friends and family are desperate for her to join Lindsay Lohan in rehab.

The Toxic singer - who was ordered to take regular drug tests last week by the judge overseeing her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline for their two sons - has continued her wild partying and friends want her to seek help at Utah's Cirque Lodge rehabilitation clinic.

A source told Life and Style Weekly: "If Britney finally
acknowledges that she must face her addictions, then that's the best place. It's working for Lindsay, and hopefully Britney will see that as inspiration."

The insider also revealed Britney's mother Lynne received an anonymous phone call last week, tipping her off about the singer's drug taking.

The source revealed: "It was one of Britney's friends saying he'd seen Britney take four Ecstasy pills in the bedroom of a Hollywood Hills home during a party on 11 August.

"Lynne was also told that Britney has done the drug more recently - and she's taken Ativan, an anti-anxiety medication, to help her come down because the Ecstasy was so intense. Lynne put down the phone and froze."

The 25-year-old singer could lose custody of two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James after her former bodyguard gave evidence stating he had witnessed her taking drugs.

Former *NSYNC member Joey Fatone is the latest star to offer Britney a hideout.

Joey told US TV channel Extra: "Britney, call me, come over to my house, come to Orlando, get away from it all. It's a good thing to get out of Los Angeles.

"I think she just needs some time, some time to really heal. If you're there, let me know. I'm here for you, sweetheart."

Meanwhile, Britney's pop comeback is looking up. The singer - who was pictured this week leaving a recording studio clutching a margarita, a CD and wearing a huge diamond ring on her engagement finger - will be celebrating as her latest single Gimme More is currently at No. 3 in the iTunes singles chart and No. 1 in their ringtones chart.
