Britney Spears' recent bad-girl antics are because she misses the security of her relationship with Justin Timberlake, according to his grandma.

The ME AGAINST THE MUSIC superstar has shocked the world with her 55-hour Las Vegas marriage earlier this month (JAN04) and reports of heavy drinking.

And Justin's grandma SADIE BOMAR thinks Britney might be behaving the way she is, because the singer lacks the grounding her relationship with the ROCK YOUR BODY hunk - which ended in 2002 - gave her.

Sadie muses, "Justin is a very secure young man. I guess Britney must miss that security as it gave her stability."
