British tabloid News of the World claims Britney Spears is planning to adopt twins from China.
The newspaper's Rav Showbiz column announces: "The desperate singer has told friends she's in the final stages of talks with an adoption agency and plans to go ahead with the move very soon.
"Friends feel that Britney has decided to adopt the two six-year-old tots from China in a frantic bid to fill the void left by losing her sons to K-Fed," it continues.
Spears recently lost custody of her children - two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James- to her ex-husband following a string of alcohol and drug-fuelled exploits and a stint in rehab.
The paper offers no evidence in support of the dramatic claim. But it doesn't stop there, adding that the singer has put a down payment on her own funeral.
Rav quotes a source as saying: "It doesn't seem that Britney has thought this through completely. Adoption and a funeral? The two don't exactly go hand-in-hand."

Penelope Cruz's Domino Obsession....
Penelope Cruz has a secret pastime - she regularly hosts star-studded dominoes games at her Hollywood home.
The Spanish star entertains pals Salma Hayek, Daya Fernandez, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher at games nights, where they all play Mexican Train Dominoes.
And Cruz is the fiercest competitor of them all.
Kutcher reveals, "I've never been called such foul things as when I've played those games with Penelope. Outside the game, she's the sweetest, kindest friend you could have, but inside it, she's a vicious warrior".
Meanwhile in other news Penelope Cruz has been ordered to quit smoking so she can sing in her next movie.
The Spanish actress needs to show off her singing voice in Nine - which is directed by Rob Marshall and also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sophia Loren.
She reveals, "I'm giving them (cigarettes) up because in Nine I have to sing!".

What’s worse than an upskirt? A downskirt. Why? Because it makes her look like a plumber showing their crack and not like someone who just “oops” accidentally showed their naughty bits. HEIDI KLUM apparantly doesn’t own two mirrors, otherwise she would have known what this dress looked like from the back.
Although considering that her ass looks tanned in this photo with barely a tan-line to show for it, she’s obviously not opposed to showing everyone her crack, and probably assumes everyone wants to see it.
I’m not even going to make fun of her saggy back-fat here, because I think that’s probably the least of poor Heidi’s worries in this photo.

Lily Allen has been signed up as the new face and body of Agent Provocateur lingerie.
The singer - who recently slimmed down from a UK dress size 12 to a size 8 - will follow in the footsteps of Kate Moss, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Dita Von Teese when her campaign for the company, shot day before yesterday (05.11.07), is released next spring.
An insider said: "The owners of Agent Provocateur, Joe Corre and Serena Rees, are delighted. They feel her natural look will appeal to a lot of women. She's in amazing shape since she lost the weight, and the pictures of her are absolutely incredible."
Lily - who reportedly received a whopping six-figure sum for the deal - has put her weight loss down to hypnosis.
She said recently: "After the hypnotism I want to go to the gym every day otherwise I feel really bad. I just want to get more toned and healthy. I'm really good at the moment - I've never been happier."
And the 22-year-old singer also credited new boyfriend Chemical Brothers star Ed Simons for helping her shed the weight, giggling: "Me losing weight is down to love. I probably shouldn't say the word love, actually. I'm in 'like'. We like each other a lot!"
But Lily insists she will never take her weight loss to extremes and has vowed to always
She said: "I'll never be a size 0 catwalk model. I have absolutely no interest in that, at all."
