BRITNEY SPEARS’ mother LYNNE has blasted her image as a “pushy stage mother”
and insisted she never wanted her daughter to be a superstar.
Spears senior has been accused of driving Britney’s career – starting with her big break on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club.
But Lynne insists the 26-year-old pushed herself from a young age.
She writes in her forthcoming book Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, “Britney was always highly motivated to excel.
I’m always startled when I hear folks think I’m a pushy stage mother.
“I simply did not have the huge ambitions for her that I have been accused of having.”
