With former son-in-law Kevin Federline away in North Carolina shooting his appearance on One Tree Hill, Britney Spears‘ parents, Lynne and Jamie, stepped in to care for their two grandchildren, an eyewitness tells OK!
On the evening of Aug. 24, the proud grandparents took Sean Preston, 23 months, and Jayden James, 11 months, for a walk in red strollers shaped like motor cars near Kevin’’s rented $3 million mansion in Tarzana, Calif., 25 miles north of Los Angeles.
A bystander tells OK! that Sean Preston kept telling Jamie, "I love you pa pa." Jamie replied, "You love your pa pa, don’t you? Yes, you do!"
At one point Lynne had a hard time keeping dry as she chased after Sean Preston, sporting matching camouflage shirt and pants, as he ran laughing into a the spray of a garden sprinkler.
The boys also enjoyed petting a neighbor’s Chihuahua dog. "It was a really happy scene," says the eyewitness. "You can tell the boys really enjoy spending time with their grandparents. They looked healthy and their hair was nicely combed. Lynne and Jamie were bursting with pride."
After 20 minutes, a nanny emerged from Kevin’’s home and said it was time for the boys to go to bed. Afterwards, Lynne and Jamie, who are divorced, left at the same time but in separate cars.
A few hours later, in the early hours of Saturday, Britney was pulled over by police in Beverly Hills for speeding as she drove her Mercedes convertible, accompanied by two male friends, en route to Las Vegas. Police spoke with Britney, who wore a blonde wig and fedora, for nearly ten minutes, but she was eventually let off with just a warning and didn’t issue a citation. However, it’s believed that the event convinced Brit to cancel her Vegas trip and head back home.
Brintey’s new beau, illusionist Criss Angel, is also believed to be back in Vegas after spending time in Los Angeles editing episodes of the third season of his television show, which is airing on A&E.
Earlier on Friday, officers from an animal welfare charity had called at the singer’s home after being inundated with calls claiming Britney’s Yorkie, London, was not being treated properly.
Officials from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals paid a visit to Britney’s house on Friday to investigate claims her new dog was wearing a cast on its leg.
Madeline Bernstein, president of ASPCA’s Los Angeles branch, told Web site TMZ: "We have received various sources of complaints throughout the day. Some said that Britney’s Yorkie dog was injured and had a cast on and some said the dog had a broken leg and was not treated.
"After the calls started pouring in, we did go to Britney’s house today but were just able to leave a note with the housekeeper.
“The matter is not if the dog had an accident, but if the dog is getting proper care.”
