Beleaguered pop diva Britney Spears hopes to gain joint custody of her two boys - Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1 - by the end of this year.
Sources have revealed that Britney is trying to reform herself for the purpose.
"Britney is doing her utmost to stay out of the limelight and lay low, and just focus on her work," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
The source even revealed that Britney is so determined to be taken seriously by the courts that she wants regular drug and alcohol tests.
"She thinks by ditching her elaborate pink wigs, and bad boyfriends it will help her case," the source added.
Kevin Federline, her estranged husband, is also said to be ready to help her in any way he can.
"She has a chance. Kevin could end up co-parenting the kids together with Britney," said a representative of K-Fed.
