Not long after Britney Spears aired her grievances about her teenage sons, her ex-husband Kevin Federline posted since-deleted videos depicting arguments between Spears and their children. Now, both parents brought in lawyers and pointed fingers at each other for why the boys are distant from Spears. The singer’s lawyer even suggested they could seek “appropriate relief” against her ex. But does Spears have a case?
“It would be reasonable to request that a temporary rule be put in place prohibiting Kevin from distributing any videos of the children talking about their mother, or discussing the facts surrounding their custody agreements,” award-winning family law attorney Holly R. Davis explained to Nicki Swift exclusively. However, it’s not a slam dunk situation for Spears. Davis highlighted how posting family drama puts the story in “the court of public opinion” and could hurt Spears’ legal standing in a potential court case. “Britney confirms the distance between her and her children, and confirms her own issues and problems parenting them on her time,” she reasoned. “This confirmation can be used against her by Kevin to justify the existing possession schedule, which has the children determining themselves when they stay over or see their mom.”

Additionally, Davis added that any action taken against Federline could be redirected at Spears. “In reality, both Kevin and Britney likely need to keep their children out of their social media posts and interviews, at least as it pertains to the court orders in place,” Davis concluded. “If Britney brings a request in front of a judge, a judge should also grant one against her.”
