Overnight visits for Britney and her sons still a long way off

Britney and Jayden in September
Kevin Federline’s uber-attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan must think he’s a celebrity or something, because he sure likes to talk to the press about his famous client’s even more famous ex-wife, Britney Spears. Most recently, Kaplan did an interview with E! News to talk about the likelihood of Britney having overnight visits with her two boys.

While the time she’s spent with her two children over the past month has seemingly proved beneficial to all parties involved, overnight visits with Sean Preston and Jayden James are still a ways off, according to Kevin Federline’s resident legal eagle, Mark Vincent Kaplan.

The attorney told E! News Friday that the monitored visits between Spears and her sons “have been nothing out of the norm,” but that “there has to be consistency over time.

“I don’t think 30 or 40 days is the magic number,” Kaplan said.

Of course this guy doesn’t think 30 or 40 days is the magic number- he is going to milk this case for as long as he possibly can, especially now that Britney is footing the bill. If he has his way, this custody battle will go on until Jayden’s 18th birthday, and then Kaplan can buy an island or something. Kaplan was quick to give Jamie Spears kudos for his positive influence on Britney, and pointed out that K-Fed is still hoping to have Britney more involved in the boys upbringing.

Kaplan continues to credit Jamie Spears’ newfound presence in his daughter’s life for this noticeably more amiable state of affairs.

“All we know is that since Jamie Spears has been involved it has been a very stabilizing force,” he said.

The elder Spears has been serving as coconservator of the pop star’s estate since Feb. 1, when she was admitted to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation. Jamie and a court-approved psychiatrist are required to be present when Spears spends time with her sons.

Kaplan said that the next custody-related hearing is expected to take place in May, and he’s still anticipating a trial, in preparation of which he has deposed a number of Spears’ friends and associates, including off-again, on-again manager Larry Rudolph.

Regardless of what anyone says about him, it’s still Federline’s intention to do the right thing for his children, the lawyer said.

“The goal is to have a stabilizing and consistent order for the kids,” Kaplan said. “His hope is that would involve the participation in a substantial way by their mother.”

I’m sure K-Fed, Jamie Spears and Britney’s doctors could work this out without Kaplan, but then we wouldn’t get these fascinating interviews anymore. Has anyone else noticed that Kaplan gives a press conference weekly, even when there’s no court hearing? I’m trying to remember the last time anyone from Britney’s legal team did a press conference or sat down with E! Hmmmm. Really makes you wonder, doesn’t it? I wonder if Kaplan will lose interest in this case now that he’s signed on to represent Robin Williams’ wife in their divorce. I bet there’s a lot of money tied up in that case.

    I don’t think Brit’s legal team holds press conferences simply because she doesn’t keep the same legal team long enough for them to schedule one.

  2. Joe says:

    Is her hair falling out in front? Looks really thin.

  3. CJ says:

    All those extensions she has really makes your natural hair weak and it will break easily which will thin it out.

    I work with a lady who had them for YEARS and we’re all pretty sure she now wears a wig.

  4. AC says:

    She looks upset. Probably because Jayden is screaming cause of the scary paparazzi… poor kid.

  5. daisy says:

    Her looks ( the only thing she had / has going for her ) has hit the wall. Britney is like the pretty girl in high school whom you run into not 5 years later and you are shocked to see how aged and awful she looks. Showing every bit of the hard life she’s put herself through.

  6. anon says:

    I can honestly say I have been amazed at how his lawyer and the judge continue to discuss Britney in press conferences.She’s had the same representation for a couple of months now and things are going quite well for her…They don’t make media shows.I would not be surprised when all this comes to a head to find out who was on the “take” in this custody issue!

  7. Kayla says:

    Slimefed needs to fire this money hungry attorney and work things out with Britney before the entire world hates him. This attorney is a fame money hungry pig who cares only about himself, he’s not fooling anyone. Britney is not your bank!

    Another hot bod lost to the Breeder faction. You get what you pay for. Revel in it, losers.

  9. Renée says:

    The only way this poor girl can be ride of those sharks is by being broke. we will see then what will become of M.Dad-of-the-years-who-spend-his-child-support-in-booze-and-strippers and his money-and-fame greedy attorney

    Speaking of Britney:
    LOS ANGELES (AP) – The Los Angeles Police Department is
    recommending that the City Council scrap a proposal to create a new
    law limiting activities of paparazzi around celebrities.

  11. Scott F. says:

    “Another hot bod lost to the Breeder faction.” ???

    I’m really hoping that I’m misinterpreting your statement here – because, if not, that’s by far the most shallow and disgustingly selfish attitude I’ve seen in a long time. So, looking pretty and plastic is somehow preferable to bringing a new life into this world and nourishing it? What about all the celebrity mothers that look fantastic after having a whole herd?

    I guess you’re just lucky your parents didn’t have that kind of attitude aren’t you?

  12. Cindy Kennedy says:

    Britney still has a hot body, she is at least in better shape than most Americans are.

  13. KC says:

    Wow, I was going to say that she looks cuter in this pic than she has in a long time. She should go au naturel with her hair and stop wearing those extensions – a really cute punk short cut would be adorable. Kind of embrace the look, you know?

  14. mollination says:


    She isn’t where she used to be body-wise, but she aint THAT far off. She can get it back easily, she just has to want it.

    Damn were all so hard on celeb cellulite when we hind behind our keyboards and quarter pounders.

    What people have to understand is, she was a star when she was very young and the life she had then is the life she has always known. She has never had a normal life and JT was her rock, and when he left everything changed. I feel if she got into the fame game at a later age then none of this would have happened but I do feel she will go from strength to strength

  16. I am a Health expert as seen on TV and Ihave dealt with many people who have gone through what she has gone through and she will come out the other end. What she needs is support and a Breakthrough session would do wonders for her. She needs her family to guide her and with their help and support she will become a strong person
