Britney Spears shares custody with Kevin Federline of Jayden and Sean, her children. Spears, who is now out of her conservatorship has decided to take a break from that in order to spend more time with her children.
How many kids does Britney have and how old are they?
Britney has two children: Jayden (15) and Sean (16 (16).
Kevin Federline is Spears’ ex-husband and former backup dancer.
They met in 2004 and were engaged four months later. They were married in September in Studio City in California.
Spears gave birth to Jayden 363 days after her first son Sean was born.
“My boys celebrated their birthdays last week… but they are growing up and now want to do their own …. things. Because they are independent little men !!!”, I must ask permission from them to post them. Spears published September 21, 2021.
Later, she added: “There are a lot of things I can’t tell you because my children are very private which is something I love. But I will tell them they are both extremely talented. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have these little men in my !!!” life.
This tribute was just days after Sam Asghari, the singer, deleted her Instagram account after she got engaged to Sam Asghari.
Jayden and Sean made a rare social media appearance on Wednesday, October 6.
The brothers, who tend to keep their family out of the public eye despite their mother’s fame, took peace signs and posted them on Instagram with Eddie Morales (CEO of Movision Entertainment) and their father’s friend.
The caption says: “In times of grief knowing that u have family really makes it worth living.. Talk about seeing my nephews in their pods. Now look at life what beautiful god’s work is.. love you bro.
Why did Britney Spears lose custody of her kids?
After a breakdown, the star lost custody of her two sons in 2007. She shaved her head and attacked a photographer with an umbrella.
Federline was granted full custody by a judge, much to the distress of Spears.
Spears was arrested in 2008 after she locked herself in a bathroom together with Jayden, who was just one year old at the time.
After a four hour standoff, she was finally released from hospital and taken to an ambulance.
Spears was then granted two overnight stays per week.
After the creation and expiration of her conservatorship, she was given 50/50 custody by Federline.
This was modified in September 2019,, when he was granted 70% and Spears only 30 percent.
Britney’s custody arrangement will not change as of October 11, 2021 regardless of conservatorship status.
According to TMZ her sons don’t want more or less time with their mom. Britney can see her children when she wants to, according to the current arrangement.
Due to their age, there is less concern about the boys being constantly supervised. The arrangement will therefore likely remain the same.
What does Britney pay Kevin Federline in child support?
Spears was paying Federline $20,000 per month in child support and tuition costs.
She also pays for their clothes, extracurricular activities and other expenses, which totals to almost $35,000 per month.
Federline requested that Spears increase her child support payments from $20,000 to $60,000 per month in 2018. Federline cited the fact that the children are now older and the financial situation of both parties is significantly different.
Federline was also required to pay her $100,000 for legal fees and expenses incurred during the negotiations.
Did Jamie Spears file to end her conservatorship?
After a string of public meltdowns, Spears’ conservatorship was established in 2008.
However, on November 12, 2021, the 13-year-long conservatorship came to an end.
Jamie, her father, was able to control her financial assets. She tried many times to end the arrangement, but it ended in failures.
In a shocking twist of events, Jamie filed an petition to end the conservatorship of his daughter after 13 years. This was in September 2021.
The petition was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. It states that Spears “is entitled for this Court to now seriously consider whether conservatorship is not longer necessary.”
The filing also claims that her circumstances have changed to the point where a conservatorship might not be possible.
The document states that Mr. Spears repeatedly stated that he only wants the best for his daughter.
Mr. Spears believes Ms. Spears should be allowed to end the conservatorship if she believes she can manage her own life.
This may seem like good news. Jamie however added a catch. He has demanded $2million in exchange.
Mathew Rosengart Spears’ attorney stated to The Sun that Jamie’s petition was filed to escape accountability and justice. He said: “It appears Mr. Spears thinks he can avoid accountability and justice, including sitting for an sworn deposition or answering any other discovery under oath. But as we evaluate his filing, which was improperly sent to media before it was served by counsel, we will continue to explore all possibilities.”
Rosengart called the conservator “shameful” and said that he “spends most of his time engaging in inappropriate attacks or finger-pointing.”
Spears filed her paperwork a few weeks later in order to replace Jamie.
On September 29, 2021 Judge Brenda Penny removed Jamie’s conservatorship from Britney.
“Based on the information in the filings, I have read all of them. Britney Spears’ best interests are my priority, Jamie Spears was suspended,” she stated at court.
“The current situation cannot be sustained. The court believes Jamie Spears’ toxic environment must be eliminated immediately.
Jamie was placed in temporary conservatorship after the hearing.
