A week after her former husband Kevin Federline was granted custody of their children, Britney Spears has secured an increase in the amount of time she’s allowed to spend with sons Sean Preston, two, and one-year-old Jayden James. The judge awarded her one monitored overnight visit a week.
A court spokesperson said that Britney, 25, spoke during the hearing in a “soft and respectful” voice. Before her appearance the judge had apparently tentatively rejected the request for overnight visitation rights. “I consider this a very positive sign for my client,” said Britney’s attorney. “I remain absolutely optimistic that she will eventually regain 50-50 custody.”
Showing her joy, Britney was all smiles as she stopped to refuel her Mercedes, which was decorated with Halloween pumpkins, while returning from the court.
So far it has not been agreed who the supervisor will be for the overnight visit, but the judge turned down the option of Britney’s mother Lynne, with whom the troubled singer was reconciled last weekend.
Both Britney and Kevin are due to appear at a further hearing on October 26th.
