A source close to Britney dished THE TRUTH to X17 xclusively yesterday about what's really going on behind the scenes.

In case you missed it, here's a brief recap:

  • “Britney does NOT do drugs!”

  • Britney never hated Kevin. He was "hardly even present during most of their marriage" but for the sake of being with her children 24/7, "Jeff" says, she would have considered staying with him.

  • Britney is NOT worried about Kevin's battle for custody of Sean and Jayden because she knows no one around her has evidence or proof of her doing anything negative.

  • Everyday life for Britney with her kids consists of 23.9 hours/day focused on the boys.

  • The negative? "There's nothing normal about her life right now."

  • On Britney's family -- "They have issues of their own that they need to work on. They need to quit blaming Britney.”

  • So why'd Britney shave her head? -- Kevin taunted Britney that even his smoking of marijuana in her presence would leave traces of the drug that could be picked up by drug testing when they lived together and he threatened to use that against her in a custody battle.

  • Why would Kevin file a civil case if he were truly worried about his kids' welfare when they're with Britney? He could have just called Child Protective Services.

  • "Britney is the most generous person you could meet." She has supported her family financially for years and feels that they shouldn't be so quick to judge her at times.

  • Britney and the press -- “Britney is very clever. She's a seasoned celebrity veteran, if anyone knows how the press spins stories, it's Britney.

  • Britney's love life? -- "She's young and single and would love to find the right man; how can anyone blame her for that?"
