Three months after pop star Britney Spears‘ ex-husband Kevin Federline had a restraining order put on Britney’s father, she is seeking more custody of her kids.
In August, while Britney and her two boys, 14-year-old Sean and 13-year-old Jayden, were visiting her father, Jamie Spears, Sean and Jamie got into an altercation that reportedly became physical.
The mom of two, upset by her father’s behavior, removed her boys from the home and left. After learning about the fight, Federline filed a police report and a restraining order was granted.
It’s unclear if that restraining order is still active. However, following the altercation, Federline also requested a change in their custody agreement which was 50-50, E! News reports.
Currently, their custody agreement gives the singer only 30-percent of her boys’ time. Now, the singer is hoping to change that. An insider told E! News:
“Britney would love to have more custody of the boys. She hates that Kevin has them more and she feels like it’s a very lopsided arrangement that is not fair to her. She is their mom and these are important years in their lives that she wants to be there for them. She feels she should have them just as much time with them as Kevin.”
Britney Spears Ready to Fight for More Custody of Her Sons
As the insider reveals, Britney is focused on being the best mother she can be and is reportedly prepared to take Federline to court in order to get more time with her two sons.
The mom, the insider says, is ready to prove herself. “She has been working hard and it’s the only thing she truly wants. She is hoping her mom can help her put up a fight. She doesn’t really know what to do but it’s her mission to get back to 50-50 custody.”
According to Us Weekly, the mom is expected to have her boys on Christmas Eve. They will then spend Christmas Day with their father. Britney and Federline reportedly do “not have much of a relationship” apart from “everyday co-parenting stuff. They’re cordial but don’t do very much as a family.”
No charges were ever filed against Jamie as a result of his argument with his oldest grandson. Britney, nor her camp, has issued a statement regarding any of these matters.
