Britney Spears’ ex Kevin Federline gets 70 percent custody of their sons in new agreement

Britney Spears’ new custody agreement scales back the amount of time she gets with her two sons — and that’s just part of the Spears family drama.

Her ex, Kevin Federline, now gets 70 percent custody of Sean Preston, 13, and Jayden James, 12, while the pop performer gets 30 percent unsupervised custodial rights, according to multiple reports, including to E! News and TMZ. They previously had a 50-50 custody arrangement.

The agreement was put in place in August 2018, according to both outlets. However, it just became “official and formalized” on Aug. 28, because they reportedly wanted to test it out and see how it went before making it official.

This news comes at the same time as a report from The Blast, which says Federline filed a police report against Spears’s father, Jamie Spears, on Aug. 25, alleging battery on his minor son, Sean Preston. The incident reportedly took place while Spears had custody of the boy. The website states that Spears got both sons away from her father — and Federline was called to pick them up.

The case is currently with the Ventura County District Attorney's Office for charging consideration, The Blast reports.

It’s well-documented that Spears has had ongoing mental health problems. Earlier this year, she completed a 30-day stay at a mental health facility. She’s been candid about battling anxiety and had a very public mental breakdown in 2007 when she initially separated from Federline and, for a time, lost custody of their children altogether. Spears has a conservatorship in place with her father in charge.

Spears, who hasn’t spoken publicly about losing time with her boys, loves sharing their adventures on social media. In early August, the trio visited Disneyland.

They often go to Hawaii with the performer and take other fun trips.

Their posh lifestyle with their famous mom factored into Federline seeking the court’s help in renegotiating their custody agreement last year. K-Fed sought increased child support payments because Spears was making more money and he was making less than when they first came to terms in 2007.

In court documents, Federline’s legal team noted that when the children were with Spears, they had private chefs and tutors as well as "toys" including ATVs, video game systems, iPads and laptops. It also noted that Spears takes them on multiple vacations a year at luxury resorts. However, Federline — who was receiving about $20,000 a month in child support — couldn’t afford to take them on vacation. He said he didn’t have space in his house for his sons to have sleepovers.

In August 2018, a lawyer made Spears pay Federline more than $100,000 for support and his legal fees. Soon after, they reportedly renegotiated the support, increasing Federline’s payments to “thousands more” a month.

Federline has six children in total — including two with his wife, Victoria Prince, and two with ex Shar Jackson.

Spears, who has been in a relationship with model and actor Sam Asghari for the last two years, had her fans worried with her cryptic Instagram messages amid her mental health woes. Some blamed her father Jamie’s tight grip on Spears for some of her problems.

That said, a Spears source told People magazine last month, “Earlier this year was a scary time for her, but she is doing really well now. Britney is having a great summer. Sam has been around a lot — he really takes care of Britney.” And she was “spending more time with” her sons because she feeling “healthier.”
