It has been a rough time for pop star Britney Spears in past one month because of her family drama, but at least there are still sunlight in her life. Britney’s son Preston celebrated his birthday on September, 14 and Jayden did it on September 12. The super star could take a breathe from the recent family drama.
At the end of August, Britney’s boyfriend Sam Asghari talked about the possibility of marriage with Britney. The exciting news means Britney is in a healthy and happy relationship, which is good for this pop star who have been through so many ups and downs from mental breakdown in 2008. However, the thing does not go smoothly as it is expected. Britney’s conservatorship and accuse of his father’s abuse have been on the front page since the last week.

Since Britney divorced with ex-husband Kevin Federline, they shared the custody for their children 50-50. The thing changed since August, 2018 and the agreement was finally signed last month after a year-long trial. The custody went to Federline was 70%, 30% left for Britney. Federline’s attorney stated that “in no way” his client wanted to stop Spears from being with the kids, but the terms of the 70-30 arrangement “are reflecting what Kevin believes is in the children’s best interest.”
Last year, Federline also asked an increase for child support. According to a source, Britney’s team was “not happy and think the settlement is ludicrous. But they wanted to make an agreement so that they could move on.” As for Britney herself, the insider revealed that she was upset, either. However, the agreement was in her own interest to avoid the legal turmoil.

On August 24th, 2019, Britney took her sons to visit her father Jamie Spears but the family union ended up with a restraining order. The boys biological father Federline filed the restraining order on behalf of two boys. Federline’s attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told People magazine that “there was a disagreement that occurred …… a physical altercation that was observed by Jayden Federline”. Kaplan also commented, “Britney did the right thing and removed the children and took them out of there, but the trauma to the kids is nonetheless.” It was said that Sean locked himself after he was in an unhappy incident with his grandfather and then Jamie Spears broke down the door and grabbed Sean. Sean was not injured but shocked, which urged Federline to ask for a legal protection for his boys from their grandfather.
A source for E News said that Britney herself was also very furious about her father because she was afraid and even a little paranoid about losing the custody. Jamie’s behavior put her in jeopardy.
In 2008, Jamie, together with Britney’s attorney Andrew Wallet, was appointed temporarily as Britney’s conservator after she suffered from mental breakdown and behaved erratically. Three months later, his appointment became permanent. The conservatorship meant Jamie and Andrew would have control of the pop star’s guardianship and assets. Jamie worked as the sole conservator after Andrew resigned in March, 2018.
In January, 2019, Britney cancelled her Las Vegas Residency Britney: Domination because she wanted to put the family at first after her father experienced a life-threatening disease. Britney wrote on her Instagram, “A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him. I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time”. In March, Britney was back in treatment to handle her mental health, but fans had a fear this was against her will. Britney later denies the claim.
However, after the alleged child abuse, Jamie was under investigation and required to step down from Britney’s conservatorship. It can be said that Federline’s file is a trigger for the possible end of Jamie’s conservatorship because the restraining order will prevent Jamie from overseeing the children’s welfare, which is part of his work as conservator.
According to a source to E Magazine, “It’s best that he steps down. There could be charges filed against him and this was a proactive move. Britney is very upset and fearful of what’s going on. It’s causing her a lot of anxiety. She is still very upset with Jamie and is freaking out about losing custody of her boys.”
On Monday, September 9th, Britney’s current care manager Jodi Montgomery was temporarily appointed as her new conservator and his conservatorship will be valid until January, 2020.
Britney now could take a breath from the recent family drama and be settled with the conservatorship issue. The bright side is that she does not need to face all these difficulties by herself alone as she did 10 years ago. The pop star got her back from boyfriend Sam Asghari this time. In Sam’s latest interview, he said “what I love the most about my relationship is the fact that it’s so normal. It’s not glamorous or anything. She inspires me in my work and I can give so much to her by going to the gym, by going to work, by having a balanced life. We can get inspired by each other here and there and really grow with each other.”
