All grown up! Britney Spears attends son Preston’s 8th grade graduation

Next up, high school! Britney Spears attended her son Preston’s eighth grade graduation on Wednesday, May 29, a source tells Us Weekly exclusively.

Preston, 13, graduated from a private Christian school in Los Angeles County, and the afternoon “ceremony was held just down the road” at a community church, according to the source.

The Grammy winner’s youngest son, Jayden, 12, goes to the same school and “plays tackle football” just like his big brother, the source tells Us.

Spears, 37, coparents her sons with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, to whom she was married from 2004 to 2007. Legally, K-Fed, 41, who has four more children from other relationships, has had sole custody of Preston and Jayden since 2008, but the boys split their time between both parents.

The pop star paid tribute to her sons in an open letter published by Time magazine in May 2016. “You are my masterpieces,” she wrote. “From the day I saw the most precious eyes, I believed in miracles to the core. Such a gift God has given me, exploring in your beautiful worlds every day. I pray as a mother I teach you strength and passion to carry through the struggles in the world. Most battles will always be won on your knees. I pray you find your dreams.”

Preston’s graduation came in the midst of his mom’s conservatorship battle. Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, has had control over much of her life since becoming her court-appointed conservator in February 2008 after her public breakdown and divorce from Federline. However, in the wake of Jamie’s near-fatal health scare in November 2018 and Britney’s recent 30-day stay at a mental health facility, the Princess of Pop has been exploring the possibility of ending the conservatorship.

Britney and her parents appeared in court earlier this month for a top-secret hearing that ended with the judge ordering a 730 expert evaluation, which is “a very comprehensive report prepared by a team of Britney’s doctors and possibly a court-appointed medical professional,” according to a source. The “Stronger” singer’s mom, Lynne Spears, “isn’t supporting of Britney ending the conservatorship,” the source told Us, and she does not believe that “Britney would benefit” from the move.
