There’s been a new development. Britney Spears’ father, Jamie, has been cleared of any wrong-doing after Kevin Federline accused Jamie of abusing his teen son Sean during a heated dispute that took place in August. The District Attorney made an announcement today, September 17, confirming that criminal charges will not be filed against Jamie.

“The Ventura County Sherriff’s Office investigated allegations involving child abuse by Mr. Spears,” the statement read. “After reviewing the evidence, there is insufficient proof that a criminal offense was committed by Mr. Spears.”

Kevin, 41, initially filed a police report after hearing about the altercation between Jamie, 67, and Sean. “Mr. Federline alleged the grandfather battered one of the sons on August 24, I believe the 13-year old [Sean],” Sergeant Marta Bugarin, spokeswoman for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, revealed to Radar Online on September 3.

After the incident, the pop star, 37, decided to take her two sons, Sean (who just turned 14) and Jayden, away from Jamie’s Thousand Oaks home and return them to their father. The next day, Kevin took action by filing the paperwork. He was later granted a restraining order against Jamie.

Britney and Kevin recently formalized their custody arrangement, which gives him 70 percent custody and allows her to get unsupervised custodial rights 30 percent of the time.

Hopefully, things continue to look up for the famous brood. Britney recently put the drama behind her while taking to Instagram on September 13, to share a sweet birthday message for her sons. “Oh how they’ve grown… Mamma loves you guys very very much !!!! May you get all your bday wishes and more … 🎊🎊,” she captioned the throwback photo of them enjoying some fun in the sun at the beach. Sean turned 14 on September 14, and now his younger brother, Jayden, is officially a teenager.

In other news, Britney was also recently appointed temporary new conservator after her father requested to step down for the time being due to “personal health” reasons. Her care manager, Jodi Montgomery, has since taken over the responsibilities and will continue to do so until January 20, 2020, according to the court documents obtained by In Touch.

We’re wishing them all the best.
