Last week, a story in The National Enquirer claimed that Britney Spears had not seen her two boys: Sean, now 7, and Jayden, now 6, in about two months. A source claimed that Britney had last seen the boys in mid July, back when she went on a vacation to Hawaii with them prior to filming The X-Factor. In the interim, Britney allegedly hadn’t seen Sean or Jayden and had been turning down scheduled visits. Britney’s people denied the story to Gossip Cop, calling it “completely not true.” No one provided a date that Britney had seen the boys since July, other than the story that she told Ryan Seacrest on air that they were excited for school. (Which could have meant she was simply in touch with them, it’s hard to tell.)
It was a controversial story with a lot of polarized opinions, I’ll say that. I felt that if it was true, that we should give Britney a break. She’s had a rough time and it must have been extremely hard for her go back to work in a high pressure job like X-Factor. (She brought out her inner bitch though, I’ll give her that.) The boys are well cared for with their dad and grandparents, so it’s not like they’re being neglected.
Here’s some good news: Britney threw a party for Jayden’s sixth birthday, which was officially September 12th, and for Sean, who turned seven on September 14th. I forgot how closely to the day she had those boys a year apart. They went to an indoor playplace and it sounds like everyone had an awesome time. There aren’t photos that I can find, and neither Britney nor Jason tweeted anything, but E! has the details:
It was a special weekend for Sean Preston and Jayden James.
Britney Spears threw a huge party on Saturday to celebrate the birthdays of her adorable boys at an arcade and trampoline park called Sky High in Calabasas, Calif., a source confirms to E! News.
Sean turned 7 Friday while Jayden reached the big 6 last Wednesday.
Aside from Brit, her fiancé Jason Trawick and her father, Jamie Spears, around 20 kids—including Sophia Grace and Rosie from Ellen—enjoyed games and cake, but not the war excitement of opening presents. (That was done in the privacy of their own home.)
Either way, our source tells us the party was a huge success!
“Britney was smiling ear-to-ear during the whole party and enjoyed watching her kids play with their friends. It was a really lovely occasion, everyone was in a good mood and in the spirit of the birthday. She looked overjoyed and at one point was singing happy birthday to them.”
They add, “Jason and Britney were beaming and couldn’t have been more proud of Jayden James and Sean Preston.”
That sounds awesome. I’m throwing a birthday party for my son this weekend at one of those kids’ play areas, and I’m hoping it will be less stressful since all the activities and food are taken care of. This story just reminds me of how much I still need to do to prepare though. I’m really excited to see him having a good time, there’s nothing like a kid’s birthday party. It may sound silly, but I love going to them! (As long as someone else is running things.) It’s pure joy watching kids have a blast, although it can be exhausting.
Well I’m glad for Britney and her boys. It sounds like things are going really well for her and hopefully that earlier story was exaggerated or not true.
In other Brit-Brit news, X-Factor has a video of all her “It’s Britney, Bitch” (Their title!) moments in the second episode that aired last week. I’ve still only seen the first one, so this was fun for me. Here it is:
