Britney Spears’ ex-husband, Kevin Federline, is the latest person to speak out on her conservatorship hearing.
The former back-up dancer released a statement via his attorney on Tuesday, June 29. Federline made it a point to note that he is focused on the well-being of their two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, at this time.
He also noted that he wants Britney to be ‘healthy’ and ‘happy.’
The statement read, “The best thing would be for their mom to be healthy and happy. And if either of those things aren’t true, it doesn’t provide for the best setting for custody to be exercised.”
His attorney’s statement continued, “Kevin certainly respects Britney and only hopes the best for her because when the best for her is achieved, it’s the best for their kids. The kids love their mother and he wants there to be a healthy and strong relationship.”
He wants health and happiness for Britney!
The two met in 2004 and their romance took off.
Fun fact, Federline was once a backup dancer for Britney’s ex, Justin Timberlake.
“I met her at a club in Hollywood, Joseph’s. Our eyes met and that was it. We just hit it off right away,” Federline told PEOPLE in 2008. “I was madly in love with her. Everything just seemed so right. I didn’t see it as too fast or too slow.”
Three months after they met, the couple got married in a surprise ceremony in California.
The former power couple would go on to welcome two sons together, and just six days after giving birth to their second child, Spears filed for divorce in 2006.
By July 2007 the divorce was finalized and Britney’s financial assets were entered into a court-ordered conservatorship with her father, Jamie Spears, in charge.
As the world found out last week, Britney’s years-long conservatorship has been a living hell. She told a Los Angeles County judge, “I cannot sleep. I cry every day. I’m so mad it’s insane.”
She called the conservatorship “abusive” and claimed her conservators are blocking her of having more children and getting married to her current boyfriend, Sam Asghari.
Britney stated that she would like to end the conservatorship; however, a petition to do so has not yet been filed on Britney’s end.
If/when a petition to end the conservatorship is filed and (hopefully) granted, Federline may request an expert evaluation of her, this according to PageSix.
Brit and her boys!
In an exclusive interview with his attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, it was revealed to the outlet, “One thing that I can imagine will engender a further dialogue should it (conservatorship) 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,” he went on. “So, if the conservatorship were to end and even more so to be terminated without an exit evaluation, I’m sure that Kevin would at least want to know what the conditions were that gave rise to her being prescribed that, and Kevin would probably have to engender some dialogue along those lines at some point in time if that were to occur.”
