Britney Spears mom, Lynne Spears has been hiding a secret tragedy. Lynne Spears ran over a young boy on a bicycle and killed him!
The tragic accident is being reported as happening way back in 1975, but the death of the 12 year-old boy is said to still haunt Lynne Spears. So sad!
A friend of the Spears’ family said, “To this day, Lynne hasn’t gotten over what she did. She gets that terrified look in her eye when she is thinking about it.”
“She has told only a few people about the accident and always says, ‘Please don’t think I’m a bad person.'”
Lynne Spears was only 20 years-old when the accident happened in her hometown of Kentwood, La., the same year she had married Jamie Spears.
Britney’s mom Lynne was driving her brother to the hospital after he had an accident. Probably pre-occupied with her brother’s injury, she did not see the little boy on the bicycle.
The 12 year-old boy, Anthony Winters, lived along the route Lynne was taking to the hospital.
Lynne’s rep says, “Anthony Winters and his friend were in the road on a curve on a bicycle. As Lynne rounded the curve she could not avoid the boy in the street as there was oncoming traffic in the opposite lane.”
Anthony later died at the hospital as a result of his injuries.
Her rep adds, “Lynne realized the boy was struck immediately and to this day is grieved by the Winters’ loss of their son.”
“It bothers Lynne still to this day,” said a representative for Lynne Spears.
“She really doesn’t like to talk about it. She just wanted to forget that it ever happened – but she can’t.”
The National Enquirer confirmed story with Lynn Spears rep. That is a heart-breaking story for both families.
