Britney Spears’ family is gaining negative headlines once again. A source close to the singer’s ex-husband, Kevin Federline, claims that Britney’s father, Jamie had engaged in behavior that amounts to physical abuse towards their 13-year-old son, Sean.
According to sources, the alleged incident of abuse resulted in Kevin and his attorney to file a police report.
Additionally to Sean, Britney and Kevin also share 12-year-old son Jayden. Presently, a source close to Kevin claims that he has physical custody of both his and Britney’s children. Reportedly, Britney has 10 percent custodial rights while Kevin gets the boys 90 percent of the time.
A source also claims that the alleged physical abuse took place while the children and Britney were visiting Jamie’s home in Westlake Village, California. ET has also reached out to Britney and Jamie’s attorneys for comment, as well as organizations.
It has not been an easy year for Britney, who has faced plenty of ups and downs over the past few months. Back in April, the pop star had checked herself into a health facility.
Shortly after, her fans started the #FreeBritney campaign claiming that the singer, who is under a conservatorship, was being held against her will at the facility. It was learned that the singer has the freedom to go where she wants, but must have a security escort and is not allowed to go to places like liquor stores.
Britney also had to appear in court to attend hearings on her conservatorship and was allowed a perpetual five-year restraining order against her former manager.
Last month, court documents revealed that her father took home $128,000 of the over $1.1 million in expenses from her legal and conservator fees. Jamie has served as her conservator since 2008 and became her sole conservator after his former co-conservator resigned.
