Trump Criticises Spears' Parents
Property mogul Donald Trump has hit out at Britney Spears' parents, blaming them for their daughter's current troubles. The Toxic singer was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital, where she is now classed as a "special needs" patient, on Friday (04Jan08) following a stand-off with police at her Beverly Hills mansion when she refused to hand back her two boys to ex-husband Kevin Federline after a scheduled visit. And Trump insists that Britney's parents, James and Lynne, must be held at least partially responsible for not just Spears' alleged mental breakdown, but for her 16-year-old sister Jamie Lynn's pregnancy as well. Trump tells U.S. news show Extra, "I don't know what's going on with that family. That family seems to be a mess. It's a shame. "You always have to blame the parents, at least to a degree. But ultimately they're (Britney and Jamie Lynn) almost old enough to make a decision."
