LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- On the heels of losing her children, Britney Spears appears to be making amends with her mother.
Britney reunited with her mother Lynne on Friday night, Access Hollywood has learned.
Following the meeting, a source told Access “things went well and [Lynne] was encouraged.”
The source also said Lynne has wanted to see Britney “for so long, but that door has been shut.”
In the wake of her latest troubles, the source also confirmed to Access that those closest to Britney feared “suicide would be next.”
Britney and her mom have been on the rocks since Brit delivered some mystery papers to Lynne on the set of Jamie Lynn Spears’ TV show in late June.
And it appears mom Lynne isn’t the only family member Britney reunited with over the weekend. Photographers captured Brit and her little sister out and about the town on Saturday night.
On Monday, a court granted primary physical custody of Britney’s two kids – Sean Preston and Jayden James – to ex-husband Kevin Federline.
During a hearing on Wednesday, a judge upheld his decision, stating Britney failed to show “substantial compliance” with the instructions he handed down in September.
Britney’s attorney, Sorrell Trope, told People magazine Britney lost custody after failing to appear for a court-mandated drug and alcohol test, in addition to her being unable to provide a valid California driver’s license.
Following the court’s ruling, a spokesperson for the California Department of Motor Vehicles confirmed to Access Hollywood that Brit has since become a licensed driver in the state of California.
