Yesterday we heard from Britney Spears’ younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, regarding the star’s controversial 13-year-conservatorship.
And today, Kevin Federline – i.e. the father to Britney’s sons, 15-year-old Sean Preston, and 14-year-old Jayden James – has also broken his silence on the matter. And his attorney statement is quite something…
Kevin Federline – who was married to Britney Spears from 2004 to 2007 and currently has primary custody of their two sons – released a statement via his attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan regarding the conservatorship.
And while it looks like the 42-year-old former backup dancer is fully supportive of his ex-wife and the mother of two of his six children, it isn’t actually that simple.
From what we can tell from the statement, it looks like Kevin is fully on board with Britney’s conservatorship coming to an end, although he is pushing for her to be reviewed before any final decisions are made.
This isn’t what Britney herself had asked for in court last week, as she requested for the conservatorship to end without further evaluation…
“I’ve seen it reported that Britney wants the conservatorship terminated without any expert evaluation,” Mark Vincent Kaplan told Page Six, before referencing the fact that Britney claimed she was put on lithium against her wishes as part of her treatment.
“One thing that I can imagine will engender a further dialogue should it be terminated is that I know she had revealed in the statement she made that she had been put on lithium, and I think, as you can imagine, lithium is regarded as a very powerful psychotropic medication.
“I have to hope that if some medical professional prescribed that for her that there was some condition or basis for that to be deemed an appropriate medical protocol.”
Although Kevin Federline doesn’t appear to have anything to do with the conservatorship, his lawyer confirmed that he is “very comfortable with the conservatorship being dissolved” as long as she “is able to handle herself in a way that does not jeopardise herself or her children should they be in her custody.”
And even though Kevin Federline would like Britney to be evaluated before any final decisions are made, he – via his lawyer – made it very clear that her health and happiness, along with the health, happiness, and safety of their children, are his only priorities…
“It was distressing to see her be in distress,” Mark Vincent Kaplan added.
“Kevin really has no inside information about what goes on inside of the conservatorship, but obviously if Britney is in a healthy and good and strong place, that’s great.
“He wants her to be happy and healthy.”
What do you think of Kevin Federline’s statements?
Do you think it’s reasonable for Kevin and the rest of Britney’s family to request an evaluation before she is taken off her medication and the conservatorship comes to an end?
