Britney Spears is home again: The pop star left California on Friday and returned to her hometown of Kentwood, La. – her first trip back since before her hospitalization and custody battles of the past year, a source tells PEOPLE.
Also in town is Spears’s father, Jamie, who remains in legal control of her affairs until a July 31 hearing.
The singer’s arrival in her home state comes as sources say there is a planned baby shower over the weekend for her 17-year-old sister Jamie Lynn, who announced her pregnancy in December.
Spears, 26, last visited Kentwood in early 2007 for her aunt’s funeral.
