It looks like Britney Spears is ready to be a full-time mom again. The 28-year old singer reportedly wants to take over sole custody of her two boys, Sean Preston, 5, and Jayden James, 4, from ex-husband and former back-up dancer Kevin Federline, 32. The exes have joint custody of the kids but they live with their dad. Britney would apparently like to change that and have the boys live with her and boyfriend, and former agent, Jason Trawick.
“It’s getting harder and harder for her to hand the boys back to Kevin after each visit,” a source close to the pop star told Closer magazine. “Britney dreams of marrying Jason and having the kids live with them — she’d even like to have more children too. She won’t be happy until the boys are with her full-time.”
The problem with this, though, is that Kevin has no intention of giving up custody. While the relationship between the two is amicable (word is that Kevin gets along well with Jason and thinks he’s a good influence on Britney), Britney currently pays Kevin $15,000 per month in child support. She has apparently offered to continue these payments even if she were to get sole custody, but he has refused. “He’s told her she can visit them every day but there’s no way he’s handing them over full time,” the source said. “But he’s told her he fears she’s still too unstable and could go off the rails again.”
Kevin may have a point as TMZ is reporting that Britney is likely to remain under a conservatorship next year. She was placed under the care of her father, Jamie, in January 2008 after suffering a meltdown that led to her being held in a psychiatric ward at an LA hospital.
