"I believe in her 110 percent, but she needs to call (me)," McLean said Thursday. "If her publicist or somebody can get in touch with me, I just want to sit down with her and have it out."

Spears, 26, has been in the media spotlight in recent months due to her ongoing child custody dispute, along with other aspects of her life.

McLean told People that if he had a chance to talk with the "Toxic" star, he would draw upon his past to offer aid and assistance.

"She has given people hints of her troubles, but fear is a really big thing, and depression. ... I've been through it. I'm coming up on six years sober," the 30-year-old pop singer said. "I just want to sit her down and pick her brain."
