Kevin Federline still wants his sons to have a relationship with his ex-wife and their mother, Britney Spears, amid his legal drama with her father, Jamie Spears.
Us Weekly confirmed on Tuesday, September 3, that Federline, 41, was granted a restraining order against Jamie, 61, after claims that the grandfather had abused the rapper’s 13-year-old son, Sean Preston, whom he shares with the “Toxic” singer, 37.
“Kevin wants Britney to have meaningful and significant contact with their children,” Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, tells Us. “Kevin has always maintained that position, and I commend him for that because he only wants what is best for the boys. He recognizes that includes having their mother as an active participant in their lives.”
Kevin Hart May Need Back Surgery for Major Injuries After Car Crash: Report
Kevin Hart may need back surgery after suffering major injuries in a terrifying car crash in the early hours of Sunday, September 1.
The former backup dancer and his attorney went to court on August 27 for an emergency hearing to seek a restraining order against Jamie. The order, which was granted with no opposition from the grandfather, prohibits Jamie from coming near Preston or his brother, Jayden James, 12, for three years, a source told Us. The conditions also state that an adult Federline approves of, who cannot be Jamie, must be present whenever his sons are with Britney, according to the insider.
Us has reached out to Jamie for comment.
The restraining order came after Us reported that the DJ and the “Womanizer” songstress, who split in 2007 after two years of marriage, had changed their custody agreement. A source confirmed to Us that Federline will now receive custody of Preston and Jayden 70 percent of the time, while Britney will receive 30 percent. The couple previously had a 50-50 arrangement, which was in place since their divorce in 2007.

Pictures: Britney Spears and Kevin Federline's Timeline: From Divorce to Coparenting
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline have certainly had their ups and downs since splitting in November 2006. The former couple, who were wed from 2004 to 2006 and share sons Sean Preston and Jayden, have gone from feuding exes to supportive coparents. The DJ recently praised his ex-wife for seeking mental health treatment amid her father Jamie Spears’ illness in April 2019. “Kevin commends Britney for recognizing that she needs to take a step back and that she is taking the reasonable steps to deal with her situation in a responsible way,” Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told The Blast. He also agreed to care for their children until she has recovered. The pair’s journey to amicability hasn’t been an easy one, however. Just months prior, the twosome were locked in a bitter feud after Federline requested an increase in child support payments. The duo, who once avoided each other at their son Preston’s baseball game, according to an eyewitness, have also feuded over custody in the past. By 2015, however, they seemed to have temporarily gotten over their differences: The reality star recalled his happier times with Spears to Access Hollywood in March 2015. “It was a good time in my life,” he said, adding that their coparenting was going “great.” Scroll through to relive Britney’s ups and downs with the One Tree Hill alum.
Things ended between the duo when the Crossroads star filed for divorce in November 2006, citing “irreconcilable differences.” In her initial filing, Spears asked for legal and physical custody of her two sons, with Federline to receive “reasonable visitation rights.”
Cricket player had thumb removed after routine surgery went wrong
It was supposed to be routine surgery to treat Britney Thomas's fractured thumb. Instead, she ended up in agony, with her dreams of playing professional cricket dashed.
Four months later, the pair reached a settlement. A statement was issued by Federline’s former lawyer, Michael Sands: “The parties signed an agreement which was a global settlement on all issues of their marriage and child custody.”
Federline was awarded sole custody of Preston and Jayden in 2008 after Spears experienced a mental breakdown that resulted in her being placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold. In June 2008, they agreed to a settlement in which Federline retained sole custody of their boys, while Spears would receive two visits and one overnight per week.
The former pair were not on speaking terms in March 2011, attending their son Preston’s little league game separately and avoiding one another. “They kept their distance from one another and didn’t speak,” an onlooker revealed at the time.
It was a different story by March 2013: The “Hold It Against Me” singer not only joined Federline to cheer their sons on at a soccer game, but also hung out with his then-girlfriend (now wife) Victoria Prince.
Elon Musk said he wants to buy The Onion after his satirical startup shut down earlier this year
Elon Musk tweeted on Tuesday that he's interested in buying The Onion. "I'd love to," Musk said when asked if he was purchasing the publication. G/O Media, which owns The Onion, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Daily Beast reported in 2018 that Musk considered buying The Onion in 2014 and hired several former staff members for a satirical startup, Thud, which folded in May after Musk stopped funding it. Rather than publish content on a single website, Thud created satirical projects in a variety of formats, including fake products and services.
The Celebrity Fit Club alum made an effort to get along with Spears’ then-boyfriend David Lucado at one of Preston and Jayden’s soccer games. Federline also addressed any would-be awkwardness to TMZ, saying, “Nah, man. You know, everybody’s moved on.”
K-Fed talked coparenting with the Princess of Pop to Access Hollywood Live. “We have two beautiful children. The way that everything has turned out, everybody’s happy. Coparenting is going great. I can’t complain.”
The model remembered his relationship with the Vegas performer fondly in June 2015, telling Us, “That time of my life, it was great. It was fun, it was crazy, it was chaos…The limelight, the entertainment business, the lifestyle — period.” He also called his former spouse a “loving, caring person,” adding, “There was ups and downs. We’re not perfect people, obviously. There’s things that she did, there’s things that I did…I think all of that is just from being young and everything plays a part into it…[but] I have so many great memories, they outweigh the bad. For us to split up and me say that, it should speak very loudly.”
The exes almost looked like friends while chatting it up at their sons’ football game, smiling and sharing secrets: An onlooker said the pop star whispered something in Federline’s ear at one point as they cheered their boys on from the sidelines.
Kevin Hart released from hospital after serious car crash
The Jumanji actor sustained "major back injuries" earlier this month.
The former backup dancer talked about the progression of his relationship with Spears to Bravo in June 2017. “It wasn’t always easy, but it’s a lot easier now,” he told the outlet. “When you are coparenting, you have to be willing to give up some of the things you would really like to do.”
Things took a turn for the worse once more in February 2018, when the DJ requested an increase of $20,000 a month in child support payments. “She’s angry Kevin is asking for more money because she pays for everything,” a source told Us at the time, noting that their relationship was “strained.”
Federline “flatly rejected” the former Mouseketeer’s initial child support proposal, asking that she double his payments to nearly $40K. According to a source, Spears’ camp deemed the move a “money grab:” “Kevin hasn’t had a full-time job in a long time. He just continues to sponge off Britney. She absolutely will not allow Kevin to take advantage of her. If he even dares to withhold her kids from her after asking for a child support increase, there will be hell to pay.”
Retaliation was a worry for the “Piece of Me” singer amid the couple’s child support feud: “Britney is extremely agitated and extremely concerned that Kevin is going to no longer allow her to see their children because he has sole custody as retribution for not agreeing to the $40,000 in child support payment, which would be a $20,000 increase from what he is getting now,” a source told Us.
It appeared Britney didn’t need to worry: Federline allowed the songstress to take their kids on her Piece of Me U.S. tour amid their ongoing custody battle. “He knows it’s better for her when they’re on the road with her,” a source told Us. “Even though Kevin and Britney are locked in a bitter dispute, he is keeping that completely separate from what is best for the boys, which he recognizes is being with their mom.”

A source told Us that the deal “allows Kevin to give the boys a similar lifestyle [to the one] they have when they are with Britney.”
The “Caught Up” rapper stepped up to take care of Sean Preston and Jayden while Britney sought voluntary mental health treatment at a wellness center. “Kevin commends Britney for recognizing that she needs to take a step back and that she is taking the reasonable steps to deal with her situation in a responsible way,” Vincent Kaplan, told The Blast.
