Britney Spears' Kids Are With Their Dad Kevin Federline As She Enters Mental Health Facility

Kevin Federline’s lawyer has released a statement praising his ex wife Britney Spears.

"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," his lawyer told The Blast in a statement.

Britney reportedly checked into a facility amid her father’s declining health.

Their two kids, 13-year-old, Sean Preston, and 12-year-old, Jayden James, are said to be with Kevin at this time.

Federline and Spears were recently locked in a battle over child support and she was ordered to pay "thousands more" in support, plus $100,000 for lawyer fees. According to The Blast, Federline is now considering heading back to court to ask for more money from Britny to care for the kids while she is away.

Spears’ emotional well-being took a turn for the worse after her father’s colon ruptured last year. The 37-year-old star has been extremely upset over the ongoing medical issues with her dad after revealing he almost died. She even postponed her Las Vegas residency to deal with her father’s illness.
