"They are definitely not getting back together, but decided a bitter war was not the right answer, and not a healthy environment for their two sons."

The source claims Britney has had a private investigator watching Federline for much of the last two months in the hope of catching him out as a bad parent and building a case for full time custody.

“Britney was very bitter about the whole rehab issue. She felt threatened by Kfed’s renewed enthusiasm for parenting and that her mother Lynn seemed to side with him,” the insider said, adding.. “She was sworn on revenge, and hoped to win back full time custody, but she has since come to her senses and believes both parents should be involved in the upbringing of her sons.

Federline was reportedly so effected by Britney’s attempts to entrap him, that he moved to a new secret location to escape surveillance. “Kevin knows how determined Britney is and how possessive she is of her kids. He initiated a meeting to try and appease her in early May.”

Kevin was spotted visiting Britney  at her Hollywood home on three occasions since she left promises on March 21. Sources claim Kfed initially contacted her in late April with the first visit at her Hollywood Hills home on  Sunday April 22. He visited again a few weeks later on May 13.

Insiders say  that on both occasions, Kfed entered the home in his regulatory white t shirt and bag shorts  in  what appeared a morose state, though was decidedly more cheerful after a two hour heart to heart.

According to the insider, “Kev and Brit discussed their situation patiently and amicably. They had a mutual family friend present to monitor and witness everything and they discussed the things that concerned them about their mutual approaches to parenting..

“Both agree that as they both share parenting that they should both be hands on with their kids during designated custody periods. There’s no point in offloading them on nannies.”

 Meanwhile Britney again proved she has forgiven mum Lynn for her stance with Kev and rehab, hosting another family day at the Bel Air mansion she is currently renting from Las Vegas casino entrepreneur George Malouf.

Present at the home was Brit’s kids Sean Preston and Jayden James, mum Lynn, her sister Jamie Lynn and boyfriend  Casey Aldridge. The Spears clan reportedly had a fun days swimming and playing with the kids in the back yard. They also enjoyed a catered lunch outdoors.

Sources say Lindsay and Samantha have been an item since New Years eve, when they partied together in Miami at Mansions nightclub. Since then they have been a regular fixture together, seen everywhere from Plumm in NYC to LAX in Hollywood .

"They are practically inseparable," said the insider. " They have been together constantly for the past few months. Lindsay is very open about her sexuality and they are now very intimate with one another, alternating between each other's homes in LA and NYC," the source said.

At upscale nightclub Plumm in NYC just two weeks ago, Lindsay and Samantha shocked club goers with their brazen disoplays of affection for one another. "Lindsay took up her usual position next to Samantha in the DJ booth, helping hr to pick songs and mix tunes, but this time she was rubbing her back and shoulders and kissing her neck."

"At one point, Samantha lined up a few tracks and they both disappeared into a nearby restroom, not returning for 15 minutes," the insider claimed." When they came back Lindsay looked absolutely wired and Samantha had a huge grin on her face," the source added.

Nadine Vists Jesse

Taking leave from recording duties on the latest Girls Aloud effort in London , smitten songstress Nadine Coyle rushed to be by the side of hunky new beau Jesse Metcalfe this week as he battles his demons in Promises rehab center in Malibu California .

Sources say Girls Aloud singer has spoken to Jesse everyday since he checked in to the center on March 19. Best known as the hunky gardener on the ABC show 'Desperate Housewives' and the star of the film 'John Tucker Must Die,' Metcalfe checked in to

exclusive Promises Center after a week long binge which culminated at the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood , where staff asked him to leave due to his extreme behavior.

Nadine headed to LA late last week, arriving in LA with her father Niall to visit Jesse at the center. Sources at Promises say the emotional reunion took place last Friday.

 "They were both in tears and very happy to see one another, kissing and hugging. She arrived with her father who  delivered her and picked her up nearly four hours later."

Rather than brave  the nearby paparazzi infested village of Malibu , Nadine and Jesse instead strolled the grounds, taking in the spectacular ocean views. After walking a sizeable distance from  the main compound, they found an isolated spot, where they enjoyed lunch together after ordering in from a local gourmet seafood cafe.

Despite visiting hours being limited to two hours, Jesse negotiated a reprieve from Promises strict routine in order to spend quality time with his girl.

According to a Promises source, "they are obviously very into one another, they both talked intensely for nearly the whole time they were together, though they also made some time for some intense making out. She took a napkin and wiped his mouth at

one pint and they fed one another spoon fulls of food, it was all very sweet."

The Promises insider says Nadine visited Jesse for the next consecutive days, bringing Jesse gifts which included books, clothes and DVD's. Sources say Nadine will remain in LA for around 10 days before heading back to LA to fulfill her career obligations.

"She is currently staying at Jesse's home in Beverly Hills ," the source said, adding "Nadine mentioned how much she loves LA and Jesse so she's also spending some time during the visit to heck out potential living spaces.

The Promises source says Jesse has since turned himself around due to his stint in rehab. "Jesse has been a model patient since he arrived, the insider said. "Unlike other celebrity patients he has his ego under control and is willing to share in group therapy sessions and do daily chores around the center."

The insider said that after an initial week of detoxifying, Jesse now adheres to a rigorous schedule of group and one on one therapy, as well as lectures devoted to understanding what triggers his compulsion to drink and do drugs. He also hits the gym everyday which is perfecting his already impressive physique.

Ironically, just like his character in Desperate Housewives, Jesse has been designated gardening duty, which has seen him assisting gardening staff with trimming lawns and raking leaves. "The chores are part of a humbling exercise, that helps to ground the patient, and helps them to better understand themselves.

According to the source, although Jesse is progressing well, he will remain in the center for another month. He was recently allowed to leave the center alone, due to his quick reaction to treatment. Dressed in Jeans, gym boots and a denim

shirt, he browsed local clothes stores,  buying a shirt from a local store and hitting the local Starbucks where he was bombarded by Paparazzi.

In November this year, Jesse's latest feature film, Loaded will be released in the US . In the movie he plays a young, wealthy club kid whose life spirals downward into an out-of-control world of drugs, sex and violence.

Brit Rehab Routine

Toxic princess Britney Spears appears to be reaping the benefit of her stay at the luxury $40,000 a month Promises rehab center in Malibu .

Rising everyday at 6am, sources say Brit is now involved in a strict routine consisting of physical and psychological therapy, including yoga, counseling sessions and psycho drama sessions.

Insiders say the twice daily psycho drama sessions are used as a technique to help clarify antisocial personality traits. “They aid patients with addictions in the process of realizing the extremes of their behavior, clarifying what drives them to indulge,” says a clinic source.

Insiders say Britney is staying on the 15 acre Malibu property which houses three separate buildings that host sleeping quarters, counseling sessions and a kitchen with eating facilities. “She is progressing well at the center and has settling into the routine,” the source says. “

At 10 am on Sunday morning, Kevin took Sean Preston and Jayden James to visit their mother in rehab. The family reunion was short-lived, however, as Kevin took the kids home after less than an hour, with observers saying he appeared in a morose mood while returning home.

On Monday night Brit went to Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Pacific Palisades from 8 - 9 pm. According to witnesses Brit smoked and chatted with others who attended the meeting.

She left in a white SUV owned by Promises, with a group of people assumed to be associated with the center, some patients, some staff. Brit changed her look a little and wore a dress with heels, but hid under her signature hoodie.

Meanwhile Brit’s ex Kevin Federline has been criticized for his wayward parenting, with his young sons Jaden and Sean Preston seldom seeing the light of day. Observers say the children are rarely outside during their current routine, which sees them spending most of their time indoors at Kevin’s Tarzana home or while visiting Britney in rehab.

“They are seldom outdoors, which could be bad for their health,” the source said. Kfed is reportedly annoyed by the prospect of people profiting from the photographs in advance of him brokering a deal to sell them,” an insider said.

Kfed is also rumored to be negotiating a deal with an LA based production company to make a second reality TV series, this time about his current plight as a single parent, raising his kids, while Brit recovers in rehab.

 Beckhams woes in finding an LA home

After a harrowing month spent trying to locate  the right property, it seems Victoria Beckham has found a nest for her man and her clan, clinching a deal to occupy a $20 million dollar mansion once occupied by Meg Ryan.

Insiders say the pair did far more in the upscale property than rehease lines for Proof Of Life. The Bel Air property, just a stone's throw from Tomkat's residence is a steal for the Beckham's who originally set their LA property budget at $30 million.

As per their aversion to any renovations, the home is fully decked out in Mediterranean decor, with ten bedrooms and five bathrooms. There's also a tennis court, swimming pool, gym, but as yet no soccer field.

Robbie's La La Land
 

The wild Hollywood lifestyle of embattled crooner Robbie Williams is at the core of his addiction issues, with regular private parties at his Hollywood mansion filled with drugs booze and sex.
 
 According to an insider Robbie's  fear of media scrutiny saw him  preferring private over the top parties at his Hollywood mansion rather than let loose in LA's host of hipster nightspots. At home Robbie was able to truly indulge his wild side and avoid the cameras and comments.
 
Sources say Robbie often hosted private parties, sometimes two in a week, letting a select group of friends and acquaintances know by email and text message. Some of Williams in house nights followed the popular LA "tray party," trend, whereby various illegal an legal drugs are placed on a tray for all to share.
 
According to a source who attended several of the parties "There were masses of drugs on hand, including piles of cocaine,  heroin, weed, GBH  and ecstacy and various prescription pills, like Vicodin and Xanax. It was like a chemist. There was also well stocked bar with a barman serving virtually anything you wanted," a source claimed.
 
The source claimed Williams house parties were always bawdy, with people romping naked and having sex openly in front of others. "People were going into rooms and having sex, dancing half naked, swimming in the pool and chasing one another about, it was a really wild time. This would carry on till well past sunrise, I can remember staying for two days on one occasion.

The insider claimed Williams was quite spontaneous about his parties, holding up to six a month if the mood struck. On other occasions, the often solitary singer would lie low, remaining at his home alone watching movies.

The source says, those attending the parties were generally known to Williams and selected by people close to him, including his housemate. "It was a typical LA crowd, many were Brits involved in the entertainment biz, while others work in fashion and music," the source revealed.

While there were many drugs on hand, the insider say they seldom saw Robbie indulge. Despite having a house full of guests, the eccentric star would often retreat to his bedroom with a new gal pal, and remain there for the entire duration of the party.

In addition to attracting LA's glamour set the source claims high class hookers were another mainstay of Robbie's wild nights." A team of working girls  often showed up towards the end of the evening. Robbie's assistant would arrange it and they would disappear into a bedroom with two girls each."

According to an insider, "Britney was wasted when she visited the hairdresser and tattoo parlor, she's been taking a cocktail of Vicodin and anti depressants and hasn’t been herself since the Grammy's. It was the ultimate act of self sabotage, her way of telling her critics she doesnt care less what anyone thinks of her."

The source claims Brit finally succumbed to pressure from friends and family  and checked into the Crossroads Clinic in Antigua last week, but left after she objected to the spartan conditions and the fact that she wouldnt see her kids for nearly a month.

"Britney doesnt really think she has a substance abuse or alcohol problem. She's always partied as much its just that before she didnt have two kids and she did it at home with her partners. As someone in her early twenties she'd jus lay off for a week and work out everyday, now that she hasnt been doing that, its effected her physically."
