Britney Spears is reportedly set to adopt Chinese twins.
The troubled singer – who recently lost custody of her two sons, Sean Preston, two, and 14-month-old Jayden James, to ex-husband Kevin Federline – is allegedly in the final stages of talks with an agency about adopting the six-year-olds.
Friends claim Britney – who has three supervised visits with Sean and Jayden a week – is desperate to fill the void in her life since she lost the boys and believes opening her home to the disadvantaged youngsters will give her life new purpose.
A source said: ‘She misses her boys terribly and needs them in her life. She thinks adopting the twins is the perfect solution.’
The Gimme More singer – who was ordered by a judge to undergo random drug tests to prove she’s a suitable mother – is also said to be planning her own funeral. Britney, 25, is so concerned her unhealthy lifestyle will eventually take its toll so has splashed out Â£25,000 in case she ends up in an early grave.
A friend added: ‘Adoption and a funeral? They two don’t exactly go hand-in-hand. Paying for a funeral is a sensible thing to do – but not when you’re only 25! It’s a case of too much, too soon with Britney.’
Earlier this month, Britney was banned from driving with Sean and Jayden and her court-ordered parenting coach recently slammed her mothering skills, saying her household: ‘Ranged from chaotic to almost somber with no communication at all.’
