The rehabilitation of Britney Spears continues as the singer and her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Tuesday with the result being that she is allowed more time with their two young sons.
“Kevin loves Britney and he loves his children,” his spokesperson tells In Touch. “I believe he would love to see a situation where the children have the benefit of a mommy and a daddy raising them. I’ve seen him [Kevin] with his children. The love is genuine.”
Meanwhile, with the exact details of the change in visitation still sealed, Kevin’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan described the modification as “a cautious step — a step nonetheless. The children are great. We’re going to take it one step at a time.”
Britney’s parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, who accompanied her to court, said in a statement: “We are so pleased with Britney’s progress and we’re very appreciative of the court’s recognition of this progress.”
She has been seeing the boys, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden, 19 months, but without any overnight visitation rights. Despite today’s decision, Kevin still retains full custody.
Britney, 26, wearing a brown polka-dot dress and white shawl, arrived at LA Superior Court for the first time in several months with her powerhouse attorneys Blair Berk and Stacy Phillips.
Previous trips to court by Britney have turned into a circus, with her turning tail and leaving after a few minutes. This time, however, an insider reveals to In Touch that she is “calmer and in control.”
