Why Britney Spears Doesn’t Wants A Custody ‘War’ With Kevin Federline When Conservatorship Ends

Kevin Federline & Britney Spears

Britney Spears shares sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, with ex-husband Kevin Federline. The star currently has 30% custody time, while Kevin holds 70%.

Britney Spears, 39, doesn’t want a custody “war” with ex-husband Kevin Federline, 43, once her conservatorship ends. The former couple share teenage sons Sean Preston Federline, 16, and Jayden James Federline, 15, together, and are currently under a custody arrangement where the Baby!…One More Time star has 30%, while Kevin maintains a majority 70%.

When it comes to seeing then, “she pretty much has access to them as much as she wants at this point, as Kevin never refuses her tine with the boys,” an insider told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “Britney knows that Kevin is a good dad. She doesn’t want to have war with him. No one wants that,” they added. Britney previously lost custody in 2007, and eventually she and Kevin reached a joint custody agreement. That changed again in 2019 when Kevin assumed 70%.

Notably, her son Sean will be 18 in just two years. “Britney has been advised to leave the custody situation as is because – by the time it would get this to the courts and changed – her one son will be 18 and the other will be right behind,” a second insider says. “She doesn’t want to put her kids through that mess and deal with unnecessary attention to them or their lives. They are both fully old enough to know exactly what is going on. They love her and are so glad that she is finally getting her life back. All her sons have known their whole lives is Britney in the conservatorship,” they explained.

Britney’s conservatorship began back in Feb. 2008, and has remained in place for 13 years. Her father Jamie Spears, 69, was suspended as conservator of his daughter’s estate — which includes her music and business dealings — last month. The move came after Britney’s two bombshell court testimonies where she requested he be removed after a number of allegations, including that she was unable to remove an IUD and forced to work. Jamie was replaced by certified accountant John Zabel, while Jodi Montgomery remains as conservator of her person. Britney has formally asked for the conservatorship to end altogether this fall.

“Kevin and his mother are rooting hard for Britney. Now that the boys are older, they get to make their own choices about time spent with their mom and they’re supportive of her too,” a third source tells HL. “The whole family is rallying around her. They want nothing more than for her her to feel free and finally be able to move on with her life.”

And Britney certainly has plans to move on in a big way: the singer announced her engagement to Sam Asghari, 27, last month! Britney proudly showed off her stunning diamond ring via Instagram as Sam happily posed next to her. “can’t f—ing believe it!” she gushed on an Instagram post.

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck Caught Snuggling At LA Lakers Game – Sweet New Photo

Bennifer fans were gifted a Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez sighting at the Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers game.

What’s a sports game without a Bennifer sighting? Not a very good one at all. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck sat courtside at the game between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers. The two were all smiles as they held hands and enjoyed the basketball game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Dec. 7.

J.Lo, 52, and Ben, 49, were also featured on the Jumbotron, per game goers on Twitter.

No, you aren’t in a 2002 time warp: following their split in 2004, Jennifer and Ben rekindled their romance in May, ushering in a new Bennifer era for a new generation. The reconciliation came after the singer split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez in April.

The romance has been growing strong ever since: the two have gone on vacation together, celebrated their birthdays, and spent time with each other’s children over the holidays. J.Lo shares twins Max and Emme, 13, with ex-husband Marc Anthony, while Ben shares Violet, 16, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

In his Wall Street Journal profile published on Dec. 1, Ben called the reconciliation “beautiful” and reveled at the beauty of second chances. “I can say that it’s definitely beautiful to me,” he said. “And it is a good story. It’s a great story. And, you know, maybe one day I’ll tell it. I’ll write it all out. And then I’ll light it on fire.”

“I am very lucky in my life in that I have benefited from second chances, and I am aware that other people don’t even get first chances,” Ben continued. “I’ve definitely tried to take advantage of that. I haven’t always been successful, but in cases in which I have, they’ve turned out to be the defining aspects of my life.”

As for whether a Bennifer engagement could happen again, J.Lo revealed in November that she’s open to marriage amidst her romance. While fielding questions on TODAY about whether she’d consider getting married again, she said, “Yeah, I guess. You know me, I’m a romantic. I always have been.”

She quipped about her previous marriages to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd, and Marc, “I’ve been married a few times. I still believe in happily ever after for sure. One hundred percent.”

Shannon Beador dishes on the new season of ‘Real Housewives of Orange County,’ sharing the details of her feud with co-stars Emily Simpson & Gina Kirschenheiter.

The Real Housewives of Orange County just dropped its epic Season 16 premiere on Dec. 1, and fans are already talking about the drama heating up between the West Coast ladies! To dish on the forthcoming drama, orange-holder Shannon Beador, 57, spoke with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about what’s to come between she and her co-stars — more specifically, with Emily Simpson, 45, and Gina Kirschenheiter, 37. “I think that with me, there are some issues and it is true,” she shared of her conflict with her co-stars. “They’re two. They’re a team. It’s two against one in certain parts of the show. We have our issues. Early on. Really early on.”

For the mother-of-three, she added how “difficult” it can be for her to navigate her relationship with someone when there’s “fighting” or “drama” in the mix. “[I]t’s hard for me. It’s not like I say, ‘Oh we’re done filming’ and take it out of your mind,” she shared. “When I pushed that plate […] in that scene [during Season 12], I cried for two months. ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I acted that way.’ It really affects me. But now I’m good with it. Time heals everything.”

That last mention of healing had us wondering about her current status with her cast. Had time healed everything with Emily and Gina? “Yes, I’m in an OK place with everyone on the cast,” she revealed. “Go figure.”

As far as her relationship with other cast members goes, Shannon shared how she was actually “excited” for the return of “Fancy Pants” Heather Dubrow, 52, after the two faced their ups and downs over the years. “Yeah, we did have a rocky past in my very first season on the show, but after we reconciled and worked things through, we were always in what I consider to be in a good place,” she shared. “I was very excited to have her back.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs every Wednesday at 8pm ET on Bravo.

Cardi B dazzled in a sparkling pink dress at the ‘People’s Choice Awards,’ presenting actress Halle Berry with her ‘People’s Icon’ award.

Cardi B looked positively stunning on Tuesday when she strutted her stuff at the People’s Choice Awards in a form-fitting, sparkling pink dress. The “Money” rapper showed off her show-stopping curves in the bustier-style gown which featured a sweetheart neckline and was covered in square-shaped sequins. The mother-of-two opted for a signature Cardi look for her hair, wearing it dark and beautifully curled while pairing the dress with strappy silver heels and minimal jewelry.

The “WAP” rapper presented actress Halle Berry with her “People’s Icon” award at the event, and the two shared some sweet photos together backstage. Halle, for her part on the red carpet, echoed her Catwoman past in a blue sparkling, skin-tight jumpsuit that zipped down to show off her décolletage. She accessorized her look with silver pointed-toe Jimmy Choo pumps and dazzling drop Djula earrings, pulling her hair up in a structured, yet tousled bun.

While accepting her award, Halle shouted out her little ones in a tender speech. “My two little kids, they have to lose so much time with their mommy because I get to go work and do what I love, so thank you Nahla, thank you Maceo — I hope you find something in life that you can love and you can do with as much vigor and as much zest as I do what I do. I love you guys,” she said.

Cardi seemed to be the perfect person to present Halle with her award, since the two have become quite the BFFs lately. Back in November the pair came together for a video called “5 Rounds.” During the segment, Cardi dished about how she met the actress. “[L]et me tell you this tea,” Cardi tweeted, “her skin is so soft…I wanted to bite her shoulder.” We’d chuckle at the unexpected comment, but with Cardi, expect the unexpected!
