(notw.typepad.com ) - Pop shambles Britney Spears is adopting Chinese twins, I can exclusively reveal.The desperate singer has told friends she's in the final stages of talks with an adoption agency and plans to go ahead with the move very soon.
This latest twist in the Britney saga comes after the recent news that hubby Kevin Federline has been given full custody of the children Sean Preston, two, and one-year-old Jayden James.
My snapper caught Britney, who still has access to the kids, enjoying a precious moment with her boys at her home in LA on Friday.
Friends feel that Britney has decided to adopt the two six-year-old tots from China in a frantic bid to fill the void left by losing her sons to K-Fed.
Britney's bad week got even worse when she was banned from driving with the kids in the car after she ran a red light in Hollywood.
And in another worrying move for the former Pop Princess, I can reveal she is splashing out ?25,000 on her OWN funeral.
Apparently, Brit has forked out the cash because she fears her spiralling lifestyle may lead to an early grave.
The grim revelation has friends and family worried that Brit is growing increasingly depressed and that her unhealthy lifestyle is taking its toll.
But pals are baffled at the double whammy surprise.
A source close to Britney told me: "It doesn't seem that Britney has thought this through completely. Adoption and a funeral? The 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.
"Not a week goes by without something strange happening to her now. She's doing herself no favours."
If Brit does go through with the adoption, she'll join the club of celeb mums who have done the same, including Madonna and Angelina Jolie.
