Temporary custody arrangement will continue past January

The temporary order granting Britney Spears and Kevin Federline joint custody of their two children through January will remain in effect, with Federline continuing to have access to sons Sean Preston and Jayden James on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, his lawyer confirmed.

Source: mtv.com

“Extra” talked exclusively to K-Fed’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, who told us, “I think that both sides are diligently working to settle the case, and I think it will fairly soon; he’s totally immersed in being a full-time dad.”

“I feel like I’m just going through a lot of changes, as I have my whole life,” K-Fed told us. “And right now, I’m just trying to stay positive.”

Love it. Full time dad my white ass.

Thanks for letting me know the color of your ass. They continue to have joint legal custody, they continue to both spend time with the kids - all is well.

^You're welcome.

They'll have joint legal for any big issues that might come up (which is probably next to none), but it's obvious who the prime caretaker is. Yes, he's a full time father for 12 hours a week if he decides to go see the kids. It's funny considering what his lawyer was saying on Extra yesterday.

Anonymous said...

Good that he have access to his sons.IT all about those boys. It not about he and britney. Whatever problems they had they need to put it aside and raise their kids that all that matter.

Anonymous said...

^ I definitely agree with that.

So what did Kevin's lawyer have to say on Extra?

Anonymous said...

OMG, some of you just post to be mean. I mean cut him a break already - how much longer does he have to pay for marrying your princess. Of course he sees his kids for twelve hours - that is what the current arrangement is. And if doesn't see them it may be because he is away working - you criticize if he doesn't work and continue to do so when he does. Geez!

He's totally immersed being a full time dad while he's half way across the country and only sees his kids 12 hours at most a week. Yep. Full time.

He has to pay until he either makes his own fame, stops living of Britney and/or gets a talent. If he does that then maybe some haters will respect him. He should work for his family, but it's laughable he's working while asking for Britney to pay all his bills.

Anonymous said...

You act like Kevin decided 12 hours. He didn't. He asked for full physical custody, as did Britney.

This is an okay arrangement, the kids should be spending time with both parents and they should both be part of all major decisions, which they are with joint legal custody.

Anonymous said...

No he didn't ask for 12 hours, but only 12 hours plus the fact that they can't leave Britney's house is very telling. It's always laughable his lawyer is constantly commenting he's being a "full time dad" when he sees the kid at most 12 hours a week. This week he's been in NY and eveywhere else, so certainly he hasn't even seen them for that amount of time.

We all know Britney is the main care taker of those two boys. She's going to be the main one traveling with them. Right now, both boys are in Vegas with her while she's recording. Kevin reminds me of one of my old co-workers. She has three kids and don't give a shit about none of them, yet she likes to pretend as if she does.

And lmfao @ Trent from Pink is in the blog. He said Isaac who is Brit's new beau, spends more time with Brit's kids than Kevin does. That was a good one.

Anonymous said...

^it is true though! I mean think about how many times Kevin went out with the Britney and Sean? Not very many times at all. Issac is already shown hanging out with the kid and Britney, that's more then their father ever did.

Kevin is all about saying the right thing and wearing the right thing right now. He has nothing to fall back on, so he's trying to fool the public into thinking he's actually being a "full time father". Please.

Anonymous said...

I so called that the "temporary" arrangement would be extended! To which some replied it wouldn't and he would get more time and privileges...yeah, right...the order was extended as is...meaning he still has to go to her and not leave the house to see the boys (which doesn't seem to be much of a problem as he has only been seen about 5 times total in January anywhere near where his children reside). This agreement likely will be the permanant one also as in the majority of cases the temporary agreement, if extended, becomes the permanent after a few months.

At least they still both have legal say. It is a shame though that he doesn't see his children more often and play more of a role.

Anonymous said...

Where did you get the info that he only went 5 times? I believe it, but I'm curious. I know the paps know where britney lives and they obviously know what time he's supposed to show up....

Anonymous said...

This is funny.

Kevin = 48 hours a month seeing the kids. Basically supervised visits MAX.

He wants full custody? What a joke. How can that happen? He has agreed to two months of this arrangement. Has he ever taken his other kids alone anywhere? He thinks he can have Britney's kids? What a laugh...

Anonymous said...

^^Since the revelation of the decree the paps and other various outlets have only stated about a handful of times (maybe a little more than that, but not much) that Kevin was returning from seeing his children or gotten pics of him anywhere knew her neighborhood...AND as photogs stake out the house, I'm sure we would have gotten more pics or at least more reports about him seeing the children, if that was the case. I mean, come on...the photogs knew when, where, how, and why...yet only managed to get pictures a few times? Not bloody likely! as they park outside of the community gate that everyone has to pass thru to get in. Plus, why would they pass up the opportunity to get the pics and stories of Kevin visiting his children, especially if Britney was in residence? It makes a juicer story to "catch" him visiting his family, while Spears is present so they can all hint that they are a. fighting like demons while he is there; b. working out their problems and making way for a possible reconciliation.

Plus, given the fact that he has been traveling the last week and some odd days, I HIGHLY doubt he has managed to make it back in time to keep his visitation times.

Anonymous said...

I really only remember once or twice X17 has caught him going to see his kids. I mean, fine if he's busy that is fine. I do respect that he has to work while he can. I mean he can't put off doing things for 6 months like Briney is doing. She's working, but he's out campaigning for public love. But his constant ploy for good PR and getting people on his side is what sickens me. I'm sure Britney can only roll her eyes seeing this new "family man" Kevin. Kevin's lawyer and his spokesperson have said more than once that Kevin is looking forward to full custody. I don't see how that is in any way possible at this time.

Daisy said...

Kevin's time with the children is 'supervised' within Britney's home so he doesn't take them out. We don't see pictures of Britney coming and going from her house because it is a private area, therefore we don't see Kevin come and go either.
If he never went then I doubt they'd be continuting the same arrangement this month.

Kevin has 4 kids, not 2. If he's spending the mornings reading Dora the Explorer with Kori and Kaleb, and half the afternoons with Sean and Jayden, I can see why his lawyer would call him a full time parent.

Britney really timed the divorce perfectly. She waits until he's on tour, tells him she's not joining him because Jayden's pictures haven't been released. Then divorces him while she has the kids. This helps her in the custody battle, and also generally the mother has an advantage anyway. I'm not surprised she has more of the physical time. I'm even okay with that as long as she's being good to the kids. All I want for Kevin is a reasonable amount of time with his kids and joint legal custody - and if Britney and Kevin can cooperate well, then that's a big bonus.

Anonymous said...

That is only if you believe that Dora story. He guess he doesn't think people will remember that he doesn't live with those kids.... But regardless that is NOT a full time father. Full time is just that, round the clock full time. Considering he's asking for FULL custody, and his lawyer says he wants to be a "full time father" all the time, put two and two together.

Britney picked a good time? Well, she was always with the boys, Kevin admitted he didn't see them that often, and maybe she picked when he was out of the country to truly stick it to him, so he couldn't go running back trying to do anything. But she was always with the kids, so it doesn't really matter when she did it. Kevin is not capabale and has never shown himself to be capabale to care for young children on the daily basis.

Kevin also stated that it was OKAY with him not to released Jayden's pictures because Britney was his mother and that was her choice. Did fans forget that? She went through too much shit (alone) with Sean and I can understand why she is weary to show him in public.

I can't believe Kevin fans don't see the new improved "father of the year" kevin. 4 months ago he couldn't dress himself and was admitting to going out to cool off and get away and the fact that he doesn't get to see the kids that often.

Anonymous said...

^ I know Kevin was okay with Britney's decision not to release Jayden's pictures. He was really sweet about it actually. Too bad he didn't see through Britney and see the real reason why she wasn't joining him.

And how convinent to just choose not to believe the Dora the Explorer stuff.

Anonymous said...

"Kevin is not capabale and has never shown himself to be capabale to care for young children on the daily basis"

What evidence do you have for that? When he was with Britney, most days there were no pictures of him so he was at home taking care of them, there is no evidence to show he isn't a good dad.

Anonymous said...

The real reason she didn't release the pictures? I'm sure that is the real reason. Jayden was a newborn when she filed for divorce. After the things she went through with Sean U can understand and she even said she was keeping Jayden out of the spotlight on that infamous Dateline interview.

I also didn't say I don't believe the Dora story, but he doesn't live with those kids so unless he's waking up every morning to go watch TV...well okay. when does he work? I think he might go over some mornings, but waking up every morning to run across LA to go watch Dora? No.

If you still can't realize Kevin was lying through his teeth with all the "happy family" and "going to go on tour together" bullshit I don't know what to tell you. The man had to know his marriage was falling apart.

He was? No he was working as he has said time and time again, before he was trying to get good PR to make himself seem like full time father of the year dad. You can count on one hand the times Britney, Sean and Kevin went out together. No, public pictures don't mean anything but the fact that has never been seen alone with the kids and only with the kids a few times is telling.

I don't doubt he is a good father when he wants to be. I think this custody arrangement is great and hopefully one day he can take the kids out to his house to see their siblings. But Kevin does not want to be a full time round the clock father. That is my issue with him. He is bullshitting everyone with that.

Anonymous said...

He wants to have his kids with him understandably but that doesn't mean he doesn't want to work or have a life; Britney works, she goes out clubbing and she's still a devoted mother. Not being with your kids 24/7 doesn't make you a bad parent.

Anonymous said...

Are some of you forgetting that Britney has a nanny or nannies? Just because the kids are home with her doesn't mean she's primarily taking care of them. For all any of you know the nanny could be doing a good portion of the childcare.

And why crucify Kevin for traveling? He more than likely showing his face here and there to promote the Nationwide commercial, plus he was given quite good seats for the Superbowl, so of course he's going to enjoy it.

I doubt any of you were readying the nails and wood when Britney went on her clubbing spree or spent a weekend in vegas with that guy? Why the double standard?

These are two people who are still entitled to have social lives and work while being parents. Actually I'm pretty sure all divorced parents are entitled to these things as long as they the kids priority one.

Anonymous said...

I hope you all tuned into Nancy Grace last night. Nancy and others were defending the hell out of Britney. They nailed it BIG TIME. Even while taking phone calls, the majority of the people said Britney should have full custody over the kids. One of people on Nancy Grace said that Brit is talented, and that she will make a comeback.

You see. Kevin isn't fooling anyone. He puts on this gimmicky immage to get good PR, and because his lawyer told him to. But the only people who are stupid enough to fall for it, are just blinded by Kevin's fake image just to get those kids. Britney has nannies but she also spends time with Sean Preston. Everything is mostly being seen in a positive light with Britney now that she's dropped partying(hopefully), and is getting back to work.

Anonymous said...

A four month image "makeover" and following the direction of his lawyers and people does not suddenly mean that he is a "changed man"! Anyone can follow directions when they have basically their way of living at stake! It's going to be a mark agianst him that he wasn't "this" way WHILE they were married because his motives for this sudden "this is the real me" Kevin will be put under much scrutiny.

The way in which the divorce was filed and served is moot...and will be moot in regards to their custody "battle" as it has no bearing on custody.

It doesn't matter if Britney has help...the point is (and thus will be made in court if it comes to it) the children have ALWAYS been with her, around her, or within her reach....when they were married and continuing into the divorce. She provides just about, if not everything, for them. Their father, regardless of his reasons even if they are legit, was not a strong presence (both during and after the marriage) as he has said himself that he hadn't spent a lot of time with them because he was busy (working on his album and promoting and such). I believe he also said something like he was gone from 7 am to about 6.To which, when did he see and spend quality time with his children? He also stated numerous times that he was so exhuasted after busting his ass working that he just "crashed" when he got home.

We can all argue whether or not he is a good father, which I think he is...when he is present and puts effort into it. But, given Kevin's own words and statements on the matter...he wasn't spending "quality" time with the children beforehand.

The fact that they extended the decree as is means that he doesn't feel anything needs to change...he is "happy" with what he's got, otherwise he would have asked for revisions and if they weren't given he could have gone to court. Barring any major (abuse, neglect, that sort of thing) thing cropping up agianst Britney, she will maintain custody...maybe not sole phyiscal but he ISN'T going to win the bid for sole custody.

^ Dream on. It will alternate between positive and negative spins for both Kevin and Britney, whether it is fair or not, for the rest of their lives. Both have their supporters as well.

We get pictures of her in the car leaving the community she lives within...as that street outside of the gates is public property where the paps wait. And we HAVE gotten pictures of Kevin going to and leaving the community...just not that many!

Why not extend the decree, even if he hasn't kept some of his scheduled visits? It's no skin of of Spears' back as she isn't the one not keeping their aggreement. Why would she ask for changes if HE hasn't kept to it? Or why would he ask for changes if this works for him?

Dream on. Most of Britney fans were NOT happy with her when she was out clubbing. BUT she has not done that since before Christmas! She also still lived with the children, even if she was taking advantage of the fact that she had a nanny.

Yes, she might not do 100 percent of the work with the children but she is a constant presence in their life and the constant parent.

Britney spent two years doing nothing but being pregnant and/or caring for a baby. Kevin spent those two years working and admitting he did not see enough of any of his kids. Now when he suddenly has everything to lose he cleans up. Why couldn't he have done this when he was married? Don't you think it would have made their marriage a little easier?

Anonymous said...

Also the fact remains the MEDIA and fans bash Britney for not watching the kids when she was out all the time. But it's not like Kevin was watching them either was he? No.

Anonymous said...

Just for the record... when Kevin said he missed his kids and wasn't seeing them as often as he liked it was while he was on tour. It wasn't like a 2 year statement. And I blame Britney for that because the original plan was for her and the kids to join him on tour and she backed out.

Anonymous said...

^It wasn't just when he was on tour...it was when he was giving interviews out the wazoo to. He stated, WHEN BOTH WERE HOME IN CALI AND STILL MARRIED that he didn't get to spend a lot of time with his children (Hell, even Shar has said he sees theirs 2-3 times a month) because he was "so busy" doing other things. He got up early in the morning and came home late in the evening and went to bed to start over agian the next day.

It was never definite that she and the kids were going to go on tour...he said HE HOPED...meaning he wished and thought it was a good idea and might be happening if it could be worked out. BIG DIFFERENCE than it was supposed to...hoping and wanting something doesn't mean it will happen.

Anonymous said...

^ There's a few details about your statement that are incorrect, but basically he was giving "interviews out the wazoo" because his album was just about to come out - and not all the interviews were in LA. Your trying to twist his words. Would you have liked it better if he had said he didn't miss his kids?

Anonymous said...

^Yes and he said that he usually worked in the evenings when the kids would be asleep anyway, he didn't spend the whole day working when they were together. When he said he missed them that was when he was on tour as someone said, most of the time he is in LA.

I don't know how pwople can sit at a computer and judge how good or bad someone is at parenting when all you see is a few papparazzi pictures and read what the media (notorious for lying) say abgout them.

Anonymous said...

^ I'm aware that not all of the interviews were done in LA. I wasn't implying that they were. I'm saying that when he said those things (which he said multiple times things to that effect) he was being asked about how recording went with family life...which is what I was referring to in the 'he went to work early and came home late to crash and start all over again the next day' statement. Meaning that while he was based at HOME he still didn't spend quality time with his boys because he was busy (regardless of what he was busy doing...that is not the point).

Besides, it wasn't just when he was out on tour and promoting and they didn't come...it was when he has access to them 24/7 yet still managed to not spend a lot of time with them; “hadn’t been able to see them as much as he like because he was busy in and out of studio everyday” (he said that in a radio interview...will try to find it for you!) Babies usually are asleep by 7ish so if that is when he got home...he wasn't spending time with them and if he went to work in the morning...when did he spend QUALITY time with them? I'm not talking about "Good morning little man, Daddy's got to go to work", but actual quality time!


What's incorrect? Certainly not that he wasn't at home during the day as he has stated so multiple times. He also stated on I think Ryan S. show that he went to the studio around 7-8ish and got home around the same time at night...then he said he was so tired from doing everything that he just slept. Hard to dispute the man's own words! How about the kids and touring thing. He said he wanted to get a bus and take them around with him...he also said he would have to see about it. He also said, “The kids are too little. I don't want to bring the little one on the road, especially. There's no pictures of him out there yet or anything like that so, I really try to keep them as safe as possible."

So take it what you will! It is not about him missing his kids or not because I'm sure he did and does miss them! Who doesn't miss their kids when they are not with them? It is about the fact that he had opportunity to spend quality time with them unrestricted while they were married...yet he didn't!

Anonymous said...

^^ It's hard to dispute the man's own words... that poster has a point about that! That is unless he was lying himself!

Hey, I like Kevin, I think he got the short end of the stick, but I'm not going to sit and say the man wants to and deserves to be a "fulltime" dad when he had the chance while they were married and didn't do it then! I don't see anyone arguing that he doesn't love or miss his kids...just the validity of the new "I want to be a fulltime parent and yadda yadda" spiel he has got going.

I have the majority of his radio appearances saved and his print interviews also as I actually like the dude and am rooting for him, but he did say that he didn't spend a lot of time with his kids and that he was away from them more often than not (which I think is the point that poster is trying to make). He had said that he worked from morning to evening in the studio and that he did go home and just sleep because he was so tired. He also did say that he wanted to take the family out on tour with a big bus and that they'd have to see.

So what is everyone arguing about?!

Anonymous said...

Well we don't know how much or how little time he spent with them when he was recording, we never will, but I guess he thought that would just be a period in his life that he's take the time to do that then he'd be able to spend time with them after, he didn't know they'd end up divorced.
He said he wanted to work now and when he's 30 he'd sit back and watch his kids grow up. Pretty good plan if you ask me, I mean really what kind of 'quality time' can you spend with babies? They don't do anything! Yeah you can play with them but then they fall asleep.

Anonymous said...

^ True all they really do is eat, sleep, spit up on you, and use the diaper, and play when they are awake...but it is the bonding experience that counts, which you cannot get unless you are there for relativily long periods. Babies can open their eyes and see who is around them and who is not...as well as be engaged by people and objects!

It is the bonding and attatchments formed when they are really young that shape the relationships later on!

Anonymous said...

'Joint Legal Custody' is a good thing, they both get to make decisions about the kids HEALTHCARE, EDUCATION and STIRITUAL up bringing, deciding what a child is going to wear or eat on a given day is not a big issue, nannies make that decision all the time.

I'm glad this agreement was extented, in a way it shows that Kevin is willing to do whatever it takes to be with his kids, and I hope it will continue to be that way until a more permament agreement is reached, how stupid would it be for him to move from seeing his boys 3 days a week and then it stop and he only gets to see them when she feels like letting him.

I say good for him, I hope things will work out and the boys will be able to be with their father, and spend time with their sister, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents.

As for ppl bushin on Kevin, let me get you something to think about, it's a reason Britney don't want this whole thing to go to court, things come out in court papers, and I'm sure Kevin would have a whole lot to say in those paper, y'all read all the nasty stories in the tabliod media about Kevin and believe every word they say about him, without even thinking about whether they're true or not, then say that none of the stories about Britney are true, you ppl need to think.

BUT, I'm glad they're leaving the courts out of all this, and is trying to work together to reach a reasonable agreement, that will satisfy them both and benefit the boys in the end.

Kelly,

They are not going thru a judge, but a mediator…which works in the court. The mediator oversees both parties and their attorneys and “finalizes” the decree. Tell me if Britney was doing .2 % of what the tabloids have “reported” why in the Sam HELL would Kevin allow it to continue because he is not in her house or around the children enough to put a stop to it or have any real say in the “day to day” things. Who bloody cares about what gets dragged into trial if it would ensure your flesh and blood were safe, happy, healthy, and secure…Why would taking her to court upset him in any way if any of it were true?....he’d get primary physical custody if it were true….that is why most are skeptical about the “Britney doing half the crap they say” stories. It would be better for him financially and most important, for his piece of mind if he did go to court if any of the reports were true. And believe me I think his attorney would push to if given probable cause. Because if it came out that the children were neglected, abused, or that she was using or passing out and he did nothing, while he “knew” of it…that right there is child endangerment, after the fact and negligence on his part.

Shar said before he got to see them "when he could". Later she blamed Britney for him not seeing them. Then she said they talked on the phone all the time. Then he was working. Britney was in NY and other places when she was pregnant and Kevin was NOT there with her. He was doing his own thing.

She just had a baby. The marriage was OVER by the time he started to tour. He barely started to tour when she filed for divorce! That was all Kevin saying this and saying that. Britney never said she was going on tour with him. I don't why people don't realize Kevin was talking out of his ass with half of that shit.

All I'm saying is both parties have a 50/50 chance of getting custody of those boys, why else do you think Britney don't want it to go to family court, and trust me, her ppl would've had it in court from the start and gotten it over with, don't be stupid.

By-the-way, they are working through it all with their lawyers, at the end when both sides have reached an agreement then a judge go through it all to make sure nobody was taken advantage of, then signs it to show it's legality, a mediator is not appointed unless the case is in court and as far as I know Kevin and Britney are working together through their lawyers to resolve the whole thing.

I never said it would upset him, I SAID he would have a whole lot to say in the court papers.

Britney is doing the same exact thing ppl were bushin Kevin about, execpt her partying is more 'out of control' than his, and you ppl continue to say she's a good mother, and it doesn't matter that she parties because the kids are home sleeping and have nannies, but Kevin does it and he's a no good son-of-a-bitch, you motherfuckers are just hatin on the guy for no fucking reason.

Britney has more to loss than Kevin if the case goes to court and the papers are made public, she put herself out to make her seem like a sweet, goody-goody, and she's innocence, the victim, but I'm sure behind close doors none of that crap is so. There's nothing the media can write about Kevin, now that is any more nastier than what they have written before.

You think Britney is so on the right and have such an upper hand over Kevin, then tell me this, why hasn't SHE gone to court and prove Kevin has the 'unfit parent', and show she's the primary care-giver of those boys from birth and should continue to be, you ppl need to stop believing all the crap in the 'tabs' about Kevin, if you're not going to believe it about Britney.

The only thing Britney has going for her right now is that she's more famous with money to 'hire' and 'fire'.

Wrong. Who said Britney doesn't want to go to family court? I would think neither wants to go to court, but now that they have calmed down will work something out. Kevin has less than zero chance of getting full custody. He can see the kids max of 48 hours a month. He has agreed to this TWICE. How can he go back and change his mind now? Unless something huge comes up, which I can't see happening.

Even if Kevin didn't spend much time with the kids, he's not a BAD father and they are his kids. He didn't abuse the kids in anyway or harm them. She can't just go to court NOW. She actually doesn't need to since she has them for the most part. If anything it was Kevin who needed to see the kids, not her.

Do you even know how custody works? Judges don't like deciding it.

Britney is doing the same exact thing ppl were bushin Kevin about, execpt her partying is more 'out of control' than his, and you ppl continue to say she's a good mother, and it doesn't matter that she parties because the kids are home sleeping and have nannies, but Kevin does it and he's a no good son-of-a-bitch, you motherfuckers are just hatin on the guy for no fucking reason.

When was the last time Britney partied, up all night? When was the last time Kevin partied? Since the new year she has been out a few times a week, nearly always working. She went to Vegas one weekend. Neither are out of control, but Kevin did spend too much time out when he was married.

Nobody is hating on Kevin mother fucker. We are just seeing the facts for what they are. Even if Britney was out all damn night, the kids are STILL with her.

Kevin said she was a good mother. Kevin has left the kids with her while he went out working, going out of the country while the kids are in her care. She took them out of the state while the kids are still in her care. I think Kevin's word that she is a good mother is good enough for me.

Britney has more to loss than Kevin if the case goes to court and the papers are made public, she put herself out to make her seem like a sweet, goody-goody, and she's innocence, the victim, but I'm sure behind close doors none of that crap is so.

Britney has never said she was that. She has made mistakes, huge mistakes... and the media is very hard on her. What world are you living in?

It goes both ways of course. If half of what is written about Kevin is true, well....

I just don't know where you are getting this notion that Britney has so much to hide. If she does WHY doesn't Kevin do something NOW to get those children out of her care? Because she has money? Bullshit. He could call up TMZ and blow the lid off her if he had so much dirt on her.

You think Britney is so on the right and have such an upper hand over Kevin, then tell me this, why hasn't SHE gone to court and prove Kevin has the 'unfit parent', and show she's the primary care-giver of those boys from birth and should continue to be, you ppl need to stop believing all the crap in the 'tabs' about Kevin, if you're not going to believe it about Britney.

Because he's probably not an unfit parent. You can't lose your kids over being a jerk and going to strip clubs. He never abused them. She just wanted (at the time) full custody. That never means he could never see the children.

Why should she even have to do that? She is the one who has the kids 95 percent of the time. The only time Kevin can see the kids is when they are in her house. I think the deal now shows who is the primary caretaker of the boys.

I don't believe all the crap in the tabs. I do believe the words out of his mouth about how he didn't spend enough time with the kids. I do believe how he acted spending all of Britney's money. I do believe how he acted like a total and complete asshole throughout most of their marriage. Seeing is believing. I dont' need to tab reports to dislike Kevin.

I'm sure he's a nice and fun guy, whatever. He's not evil. But he has shown most of the world no reason to respect him.

The only thing Britney has going for her right now is that she's more famous with money to 'hire' and 'fire'.

Really? I don't think so. Regardless she is primary parent to the boys, has been and will remain. This month shows that Kevin seems to be fine with only seeing the kids 48 hours a month.

Kaplan is a DAMN GREAT attorney honey and bloody expensive! The point was that you said Spears didn't want it to go to court because of things that could be revealed. My question was WHY WOULD KEVIN CARE WHAT SHE WANTS NOW? He can file the papers, with all the "evidence" he wants without her knowing until after they are filed and served! What does he have to lose if any of the reports are true? NOTHING! So why wouldn't he? If he has even enough to amount to probable cause and suspicion, why not file and ask? Every other family I've ever dealt with has done so if there was the slightest chance that the children were not in a healthy environment....screw the other parent, your responsibility is to your child...not caring what the other person wants or fears "coming out"!!!! If he so chose it, she couldn’t stop him from wanting a trial!! No one is holding him back from filing!! Which is why most tend to believe the rumors are just that rumors! As he has essentially “given” her everything she wants…

She DOESN'T need to go to court and prove he is unfit as he has basically agreed to just joint legal custody...giving her sole physical...which is what she wanted in the first place. All she wanted was sole custody and she essentially got it! So why go to court and fight when you have basically the better end of the stick? He sees his children (if he doesn’t have conflicts in visitation) a total of 48 hours a month, within the mother’s home, barring him from taking them outside the premises. Why take him to court and draw it out if he is willing to settle for so little, especially after originally seeking full custody?

No one has said anything about Kevin partying, I do not believe! There has been talk that he hasn't spent quality time with his children (which he admitted to himself) but that is it. Both parents went out and did things that don't look good! Tough Shit, move on and get over it! Spears appears to not have gone out the past couple of weeks and we've only seen Kevin at clubs and such for, I’m assuming, the Superbowl...BIG DEAL!

>>>He can see the kids max of 48 hours a month. He has agreed to this TWICE. How can he go back and change his mind now? Unless something huge comes up, which I can't see happening.<<<

I don't think you think before you talk, do you really believe this arrangement will continue like this for the next 17/18 years of the boys life, he agreed to an extention, because a permament arrangement have not been reached, and this arrangement is better than not to see his kids at all.

Britney is the one that filed for full custody, she could have taken it to court already and let them decide where the kids would live and who would this and who would that, I know enough about custody proceedings to know that if either one had a case against the other then that person would've taken the other to court and resolve it all already, their's a 50/50 chance that one or the other would get the kids, instead of taking the chance with the courts they're both trying to work it out themself and not leave it to chance, that's what I think.


>>>When was the last time Britney partied, up all night? <<<

I knew you were going to say that, if she had any sense at all, she wouldn't have started, then wait for the media to attack her behavior before she stop, she didn't stop because she wanted to she was backed in a corner, she had to, can't wait to see the new tell-all interview and the tears. Pity, Sean Preston and Jayden, that's gonna be her main tools for promoting her album, and I guarantee the whole team of the new album is gonna be Kfed 'the sonofabitch' just you wait and see.

You all had a problem when Kevin when out, even though the kids were with their mother, but she goes out and leave them with the nanny and it's no big deal.

I said if you are going to believe the 'tabs' stories on Kevin you such also believe them about Britney, hers was way more out of control, their have never been any reports of Kevin passing out from taking mix drugs and drinking, if you want to start with your so-called 'facts' lets.

Yes, he said she was a good mother, but when was that, do you really thing he would say that now, since he said that her whole attitude towards motherhood have changed, her actions of the past few months shows that.

Fuck that, I was the biggest Britney fan out there, but my whole feeling towards her have changed in a big way over the last few months, and it started the week of the filing of divorce, her actions from there on was nasty.

You don't seem to get, there's more involved here than just Kevin and Britney, there's Sean Preston and Jayden, why would a parent want to put out negative things about their children's mother, Sean and Jayden are not going to stay babies forever, and neither are Kori and Kaleb, he has enough to explain when his kids are older, most of which isn't true(from what he says)all the things from that media can be googled, the last thing he should want is for his kids to loss respect for him because of what he did/said about their mother, no matter what anything that happens now affects the kids, god knows they'll have enough to deal with.


Britney filed for sole physical and legal custody of the boys, with him getting visition, that means he would only see his boys every other 'weekends' 'one month during the summer' and 'a week or so during winter vacation', that's bullshit, what kind of relationship can any parent have with their child/children with arragement like that, and no say in their child's life, please.

They both have 'joint legal custody' of the boys, so from my point of view the only thing that's holding it all up right now is the physical part of it.

This arragement that they have where he visit the boys at her home, is only temporary and to keep the peace, you ppl don't get it, he didn't have to agree to visit them only at her home, why he did, I don't know, but you ppl seem to think that, that arrangement prove something, it doesn't it wasn't court ordered, it was a mutual request and agreement, she asked him to,(I'm sure she explained why) and he agreed.

I won't comment on all the other bullshit you have to say,(11:20)it's all stupid-ness to me.

You people are idiots. It would be great if you all would stop mentioning Brit's fucking partying. She hasn't partied since New Years. don't ever say that Kevin has a chance at getting those kids. Apparently, Brit has a good reason to why she wants sole custody, and she will get it. Money is power. If Ojay Simpson can get away with murder, and MJ got away with child molestation charges then Brit will definitely get both boys. Kevin doesn't have the upper hand in this shit. Britney does, and always have been.

First, you are were not the "biggest Britney fan" because if you were you would try to understand what she is going through. You would also understand what she gave up for Kevin and that she is deep down a very sweet person.

Tabloid reports of all this passing out for Britney were hopefully not true. They are also very old.

This arrangement proves that he is fine with seeing the kids 48 hours a month. Britney asked for full custody and probably knows Kevin is not that interested in daily care of the kids. Why should she have to go to court when she got exactly what she wanted?

This will not go on forever, but Kevin will never have much claim on those kids. You are dreaming if you think he will. He just needs to see that has a legal right to see them, because it's easy for her to stop him from seeing them and leaving places with her type of money. I'm sure that is what he was scared of. As long as he knows he can see the then he is probably fine with it.

No Britney shouldn't have started partying, but she stopped. Say what you will saying "she had to stop", but she's stubborn and an adult and no she didn't have to do anything. BUT Kevin should not have spent his marriage partying and spending money. He should have been there for the kids and Britney. He should have cleaned up his image while he was with Britney. They all made some mistakes.

I agree. She did something wrong, but it's over. Even when she was partying she still went home to her kids. Kevin is out right now partying and where he is going home to? Reports from Us Weekly say "his women".

Britney will get full physical custody. Kevin might get joint legal, which just means for big issues that come up Britney has to make sure Kevin knows. But it's going to be all Britney for years to come. Kevin fans needs to face the facts that Kevin will never have Britney's kids.

Anonymous said...

People the fact that he agreed to the current arrangement and not only that he agreed to an extension, as it speaks volumes! If it werent't acceptable to him he didn't have to agree! and if the arrangement wasn't in place he could see his children whenever his heart contented because if Britney prevented it in some way, he could file a case in family court and been heard within 14 days. Only now that their is an agreement does he have limited access and powers. Typically if the temporary arrangement is set in place and extended twice or more (which I know it has only been once so we shall see) then, barring any major event happening with the children's physical provider, that is the agreement they abide to for at least a year...providing they cannot come up with a viable solution.

In the end, Kevin will likely still just maintain joint legal and he will get every other weekend and maybe every 2nd week alongside rotating holidays. Not the most ideal arrangement for children and their other parent, but often that is what is decided!!! Barring any big proven claims, he cannot go back and request full custody agian becuase the judge will look at him like he is crazy! (judges look at the agreed upon arrangments and wiegh the facts...so tell me, why would he agree to such limited power and time if it wasn't what he wanted?)

Onto the tabliods, as far as the stories coming from STAR...the editor in chief has a grudge agianst Spears (has been stated many times by many creditable sources)...plus, the majority of the "drug" rumors and passing out comes from them! Not a shred of creditability elsewise, Kevin's people would have RAN to court and gotten a immediate ROC order! He HASN'T done so! and don't say it is becuase he just wants to see his kids or doesn't want it to get nasty! I work in the field and I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt (unless one truly doesn't care), if one parent had the knowledge or shred of evidence that leads them to believe that the parent that has primary physical custody of their child is doing even the slightest of what Britney is "accused" of...they go to court like the fires of hell are after them!!!! The tabliod stories about Kevin and his partying will not help his case either, but tabliods (unless the stories can be proven) are unfounded and not viable in court.

Kevin SHOULD NOT be partying either than regardless of where his children are or not! And, in the frame of the marriage and her preganacies he shouldn't have been partying, hanging with the boys, smoking pot, going to Vegas...it goes both ways honey! Niether have done right! Now it is time to move on!

She filed for custody first because she filed the petition for divorce, which in it regards children and their arrangements! It wasn't one day she up and decided that she was going to petition for custody! And, barring the necessity, judges LOATHE deciding custody cases and will mandate mediation between the couple! That is unless the children are in immediate harm's way! If she decided from the get go to take the custody case to court the judge would have turned both right around, scolded them for wasting time and not focusing on what's important and for not even ATTEMPTING, and sent them to mediation!

Melissa said...

^ You are correct. The judge will laugh at Kevin in the face if he goes and tries to get full custody after agreeing to limited visitation and no physical custody for two months. Not to mention the fact that before they got divorced Britney's people let it be known that Kevin had only seen JJ 4 times.

Anonymous said...

In the end, both will probably settle for joint custody. But full custody for Kevin will NEVER happen.

Anonymous said...

First, the reason JJ wasn't seen often by Kevin at first was because it was right before he released his CD (fully supported by Britney) and because Britney chose not to join him at his various gigs (telling him it was because JJ's pictures weren't released). He said in an interview that he planned to work hard for a couple of years and then sit back and focus on his kids (presumbably while Britney was working). But that plan went up in smoke.

Also, I assume the reason Kevin asked for sole legal and physical custody was because Britney did first. He probably wanted them to meet in the middle somewhere.

Anonymous said...

I think we can all agree that both Kevin and Britney have done some not so smart things. We are not in any position to judge the who or why of their arrangement. It would be nice, however, if they could work it out amicably for the sake of the children. My opinion is, for whatever its worth, that Britney will retain full physical custody with generous visitation for Kevin. At least I hope so.

Anonymous said...

It remains to be seen if the cd was "fully supported by Britney". Those were Kevin's words and not her own. He also said the stuff about going on tour. He also said they were just babies, so they would have to see. Obviously Britney did not wake up one morning and suddenly decide to divorce Kevin.

He might have been "busy" and couldn't see his kids, but Britney had the money and he did not have to work. He did not have to go to Vegas for the week 2 weeks after Jayden was born. There is a difference between working and ignoring your family.

I'm sure Britney filed for sole custody because she felt Kevin did not deserve to have any claim on the children.

Anonymous said...

I wanted to clarify - I dont' mean he never had to work, but he had the money from Britney and even his own to fall back on and he did not have to work so much and party so much so quickly after the birth of his children. If he was actually successful I can't imagine him giving it up in 2 years and raising the kids.

Anonymous said...

You can't imagine it? Why not? It's Kevin's life, he can do what he wants with it. He said a couple of times that part of reason he was doing this was for his kids - so it wouldn't be "daddy sits at home all the time". He wanted to show them that if you worked hard you would see the rewards. And though he's had his ups and downs, he's right, he is getting rewards from his career.

It's so funny to see people bashing him for NOT sitting at home and doing nothing.

Anonymous said...

As well, besides Britney's interviews - she appeared on his CD. I don't think there's any doubt Britney supported his career.

When has Kevin ever worked hard.... ? That is the problem people have with him. Instead of working and proving he had the talent and drive to make a cd he used his Britney's money and connections to make a cd. Instead of getting a record deal on his own he just made his own record label. He could have worked hard for his kids without doing the things he did. He wanted to be famous. Nothing about his fame now has anything at all to do with working hard. It has to do with who he married. Can Kevin fans honestly say he would be where he was without Britney?

What career exactly does he HAVE at this point? I'm just wondering since unless he's going to be the next Paris Hilton (minus the money) I can't see him doing anything. He has failed at everything he has ever done. You can also only make fun of yourself for so long. His image has improved, but not enough to get people to go buy his cd.

Britney was on his cd, but that doesn't mean she totally supported it and how he went about doing it. Obviously she paid for it, so she had to support it somewhat. But again it's obvious things broke down in the end.

Anonymous said...

To add - I can't imagine fame whore Kevin giving up everything in 2 years if his cd was a success. If he sold a couple of million cds and his tour was good and people wanted more. He would not have just stopped doing that to raise kids. He's not giving up everything now is he? He is still saying he's putting out a new cd eventually.

Anonymous said...

That's a misconception. Despite all of the "I've got 50 mil. I can do whatever I want talk", in reality Kevin funded his own career. He took the couple of million he made from producing and starring in Chaotic, built a recording studio, and went off to find people to work with on his CD. Bosko said he didn't even know Kevin was Britney's husband when they first hooked up.

Kevin's been all over the place doing interviews on many TV shows, radios, magazines, etc. He's acted on CSI, he's appeared on WWE multiple times, he modelled and promoted Five Star Vintage, now he's promoting Nationwide - that's above and beyond the work and performances he's done for the CD.

Yes, he does plan to make another CD, but this still fits in the 2 year plan he originally came up with, although he'd have to keep working anyway now that he doesn't have the luxury of only being a parent.

He's a successful man, he's making somewhere between .25 and .5 million just for the commercial alone. He was a successful dancer even before he met Britney. The tabloids have really twisted everything.

Anonymous said...

The fact of the matter is he "produced" Chaotic and was in Chaotic because he was married to Britney. That just kind of fell into his lap. That was not something he worked for. Kevin said he was BROKE and had no money when he said he didn't mooch of Britney. Was it Rolling Stone he said that in?

Yes, he might have funded some part of his rap "career", but he still spend tons of Britney's money and was supported by HER while he did this. I am also positive she had a lot to do with him being able to make his own record label. The man didn't have that much money. You can't make a cd, pay the rent, send your kids to pricey schools and buy all the diamonds he was buying with what he was making. The tabs might have it "twisted" somewhat, but he did it to himself by how he acted.

I won't say he didn't work hard for some of what he was doing, but it still goes back to him being married to Britney.

He's a successful man, he's making somewhere between .25 and .5 million just for the commercial alone. He was a successful dancer even before he met Britney. The tabloids have really twisted everything.

Hm, really? He was bouncing his rent check before Britney.

If he's so successful why is he trying to overthrow the prenup and get spousal support?

Anonymous said...

How hard do you think it is to start a record label? Not hard. Anyone can do it. I suspect he chose to do it that way so that he would have full control over his career.

He did not spend tons of Britney's money. As for spousal support, why shouldn't he ask for it? It's a divorce, Britney took the stance to get as much as she could without consideration for Kevin, and Kevin responded the same way.

EVERY single one of those opportunities came because WHO he was married to, not because he was some "big, hot, undeniable talent!!!". Otherwise people, he would have gotten and had all of that PRIOR to Britney. NO ONE knew who he was BEFORE Britney!! NO ONE CARED BEFORE Britney! His first photospread with Steve Klien---Steve shot it has a FAVOR to Britney! His magazine appearances/articles— provided as a courtesy of the fact that he was “BRITNEY SPEARS’ HUSBAND”. His CSI cameo was also provided by Britney as the paparazzi would NOT have given two shits about him prior to her! And as he got it for being cocky to the paps…he wouldn’t have had the opportunity otherwise! His “modeling” contract was revoked following Spears’ petition of divorce and he was offered the gig because of his notoriety PROVIDED by, one again, Britney! His WWE cameos as a heel---you really believe that he would have gotten it if he wasn’t so HATED by 98.5% of the population! Hell NO! He wouldn’t have even been considered if it weren’t for the fact that because of his connection to Britney and the subsequent feeling it evoked in the public! His Nationwide commercial can also be accredited to Britney as they also wouldn’t have offered it to him or done that scenario if it weren’t for his connection and subsequent disconnection to no other that Spears! You are deluding yourself if you believe that Kevin got any of the aforementioned things on his own as, once again, let me point out…NO ONE (except his family and about 45 people in the dancing world) can one bit of damn about Kevin Federline beforehand!!!!!

The only thing he can be accredited for as working and doing it on his own is dancing prior to Britney, which he had stopped 2 years prior because as he said he was tired of it and wasn’t getting enough jobs…Hell, he was evicted from 2 apartments, had vehicles repossessed, and was just about down and out BEFORE Britney Spears entered his life! If he was just a normal joe of the street like he was beforehand, he would NOT have been given those opportunities so you CANNOT accredit them to him as HE DID NOT “get” them, his wife’s fame and ability to get attention DID!
