On August 24, Jamie asked Sean to do something and Sean refused, locking himself in his room. According to The Blast, Jamie then “got very angry,” broke down the door, and “made physical contact with Sean.” Britney was present at the time and quickly ended their visit, removing her children from the home.
Another source told E! News, “Britney was very upset with her dad and left with the boys. She never wants Jamie to treat her boys the way he did or to get involved with disciplining them in that way.”
The same source shared that Britney was, in fact, the one who told ex Kevin Federline about the incident.
The following day, Kevin filed a criminal complaint against Jamie at the Ventura County Sheriff’s office with his lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan. According to testimony taken during Federline’s visit to the police station, Britney’s 12-year-old son Jayden was also at the house during the fight.
Last week, Kevin and Britney had worked out a new custody arrangement, giving Federline 70 percent of custody and Britney 30 percent. Kaplan told People that Britney’s visits with her child are required to be supervised.
Kaplan told People that Federline wants his sons to have “continuing and meaningful contact with their mother.”
Earlier this year, Britney checked into an “all-encompassing wellness treatment” center. This came after she canceled her then-upcoming Las Vegas residency, Domination. At the time, she claimed she was canceling to take care of her Jamie, who suffered a ruptured colon last fall.
However, since then, the #FreeBritney movement has claimed that Britney is working to get out of the conservatorship, which has been managed by Jamie and various business associates since 2007 when Britney had her mental breakdown, with a sprinkling of court dates backing up that theory. If Britney’s relationship with her father is as strained as some have said, this incident proves we may be reaching the boiling point.
Also of note… Britney’s gone brunette! So there’s that, too.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
