In this month of December, Britney Spears celebrated her 41st birthday with hubby Sam Asghari surrounded by gifts, flowers and fancy cakes. Still, the pop star was incredibly lonely. “What Sam did was nice, but it didn’t take away how hard it was for Brit,” a source tells , explaining that Spears was hoping her estranged sons, Sean Preston, 17, and Jayden, 16, would come over, but it didn’t happen. “They’re not ready for that yet, and it’s soul-crushing for Britney.”

“It’s my birthday but you’re my heart so I’m thinking about you,” Britney Spears wrote in an Instagram tribute to little sis Jamie Lynn – Instagram/Britneyspears

Family was clearly on her mind: That day, she also took to social media to praise sister Jamie Lynn, 31 — despite their falling- out. “Britney goes back and forth on whether she wants to speak to her, but there’s still a lot of love between them,” says the source, noting that while Jamie Lynn was “heartened” by the post, she’s also wary. “Britney said some horrific things about her family. It’s hard for them to know what she’ll say or do next.”
