Britney Spears seems to be seeing more of Kevin Federline now than she did when they were living under the same roof. On Wednesday, K. Fed once again dropped by to see his fuzzyheaded estranged wife at Promises, the Malibu, Calif., rehab facility where she's been holed up -- apparently quite unhappily -- for the last couple of weeks.
According to Us Weekly, the meltdown-suffering mom of Sean Preston, 18 months, and Jayden James, 6 months, is "miserable" at the spalike center, with an insider claiming she "has been getting in tons of trouble."
Among her alleged infractions: making too many phone calls and venturing out to pick up some new togs (she reportedly spent $3,000 at Los Angeles boutique Intuition during an online retail-therapy session).
Despite Promises' nontough love approach, Brit still seems to be having a tough time working through the first of the 12 steps.
"She's convinced she's suffering from postpartum depression and does not think she has an alcohol or drug problem," tattles the snitch. "She's angry at her family and her manager for pressuring her to enter the program. She feels she was ambushed."
Adds another source to the mag, "She's going crazy because she feels like she has no control," with another revealing that her doctors are "in shock at what bad shape she's in."
Meanwhile, when not visiting his spiraling spouse and looking after their tots, Federline has been taking care of business (no, really, he has business).
The New York Post reports K. Fed has approached several weekly magazines to offer the "exclusive" on his upcoming 29th birthday bash at a Los Angeles hot spot for a mere $25,000, which would maybe cover a month's maintenance on the Ferrari he was spotted tooling around town in a few days ago.
"The celebrity magazine will get its logo on the red carpet and exclusive coverage inside the club," a mole tells the paper. "But who cares? Everyone will have access to the red carpet. And there aren't even any big celebs confirmed for inside the party."
No word on whether Britney's mom, Lynne, has scored an invite to the party, but People reports she and her son-in-law have bonded over the pop starlet's problems.
"Everyone is making comments how sad it is that it took this to get everyone together," says a K. Fed source. "There was a lot of distance between the families, but it seems now they all have a common goal, which is to help Britney get better."
And finally, because no Britney item is complete without allegations of questionable parenting decisions and public flashing, a report has emerged of a supposed shopping spree Spears went on before to her first attempt at rehab.
TMZ.com says that during the singer's stopover in Miami last month, she looked "out of it" while browsing the reasonably priced fashions at a local BeBe outlet.
A spywitness alleges that Britney not only "handed over" Sean and Jayden to staffers while she shopped, but she nixed a dressing room in favor of doffing her duds in the "middle of the store," where she also "tried out some new dance moves for her shocked audience." (None of whom apparently had a camera phone on hand.)
