In a 2015 interview, the DJ/rapper previously talked about their co-parenting strategy following their “whirlwind” marriage from 2004 to 2006. “You’re thrown into this limelight and everything kind of happened,” Federline said. “It was a good time in my life. We have two beautiful children. The way that everything has turned out, everybody is happy. Co-parenting is going great and I can’t complain.”
While Spears passionately pleaded with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny to end her conservatorship, Kaplan added that Federline also believes the 39-year-old pop superstar should challenge the system as she “has not been served well by the conservatorship and it’s not consistent with what she wants,” he said. “I think that she should be able to challenge that. And if it’s what’s best for her, Kevin supports it.”
He also expressed concern over her mental health considering Spears addressed in court last week how her previous therapist put her on lithium after her team told him under false pretenses that she wasn’t taking her regular medication. In her 20-minute speech, the singer described lithium as “very, very strong and completely different” from what she was used to taking, adding that it made her feel “drunk.”
“If it was necessary, we have to be concerned about whether she’s OK,” Kaplan said about the lithium. “And if it’s no longer necessary, that’s great too. Just want to make sure that all of the considerations, how she’s doing are taken into account if she seeks to change the custody order in the post-conservatorship era, if that ever comes.”
Federline still has a restraining order against Britney’s dad Jamie Spears, whose central role as conservator has been a crucial point of contention in his daughter’s case, from 2019 after Jamie reportedly abused his then-13-year-old grandson Sean during a home visit. Jamie, 68, hasn’t been allowed to see his grandchildren since, but Kaplan told People that there have been no “violations” on Jamie’s end and that Federline will likely allow the restraining order to expire.
“If the restraining order is complied with, as it has been so far, I think that Jamie’s relationship with the boys can be restored,” he concluded.
