Britney Spears has been reunited with her estranged mother.
The troubled singer - who lost custody of her two young sons to ex-husband Kevin Federline last week - met with Lynne and younger sister Jamie Lynne on Saturday morning, hours after discovering her Beverly Hills mansion had been burgled.
The 25-year-old star was left in tears when she returned home from a night out at the five-star Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel at around 2am to find thieves had raided her $6 million property.
The burglars are believed to have made off with Britney's collection of raunchy homemade sex tapes as well as a selection of the singer's steamiest photographs.
Some of the uniforms Britney allegedly wears for kinky sex games and personal pictures of her sons, two-year-old Sean Preston, and one-year-old Jayden James, were also taken.
Lynne and Jamie Lynne, who flew in to Los Angeles from their home state of Louisiana, arrived just in time to help Britney through her latest ordeal.
It is the first time Britney and Lynne have seen each other since the "Toxic" singer accused her mother of taking Kevin's side in the custody battle for her sons and handed Lynne a letter telling her to stay away from her grandchildren.
However, following the shock custody ruling last week, the pair decided to put their differences behind them.
A source said, "Britney really needed her mom. So Lynne flew out and they met. Everything's great now."
On Saturday morning, Britney - wearing a revealing low-cut dress - drove to a nearby Santa Monica sweet shop to stock up on candy before meeting her sons.
While on her shopping trip, the singer was pictured clutching The Zohar, a book on the teachings of Kabbalah, a mystical offshoot of Judaism.
The star then changed into a tracksuit and grabbed lunch at a Taco Bell takeaway restaurant, before driving to the Malibu home she shared with ex-husband Kevin with her mother and sister to meet Sean and Jayden.
