Britney Spears latest – Ex-Kevin Federline wants Britney to be 'happy and healthy' as sister Jamie-Lynn remains silent

BRITNEY Spears' ex-husband Kevin Federline wants her to be "happy and healthy", his divorce attorney has said.

Speaking to ET, Mark Vincent Kaplan said that Federline just wants what is best for her and his kids after her testimony in the latest conservatorship hearing.

"What is best for her, Kevin supports her in being able to do that," Mr Kaplan said.

"It doesn't matter how positive of an effect a conservatorship has had if it's having a deleterious effect and detrimental effect on her state of mind.

"So he supports her having the best environment for her to live in and for his children to visit with their mother in."

He added: "Kevin feels that the best thing for his children is for their mother to be happy and healthy."

At her court hearing this week, Britney compared her "abusive" conservatorship to sex trafficking as she spoke out for the first time since her public breakdown in 2007, causing the star's mother to be "concerned."

She exclaimed she is "not a slave" and said she is "so angry" she wants to "sue" her family for years of "abuse."

So far her sister Jamie-Lynn has yet to comment on her sister's shocking testimony.

    WHAT IS LITHIUM?

    Lithium is a type of medicine used as a mood stabiliser.

    It is used to treat disorders such as:

    • mania (feeling highly excited, overactive or distracted)
    • hypo-mania (similar to mania, but less severe)
    • regular periods of depression, where treatment with other medicines has not worked
    • bipolar disorder, where your mood changes between feeling very high (mania) and very low (depression)

    It can also reduce aggressive or self-harming behaviour. The prescribed drugs are usually administered as tablets, but can also come as a liquid.

    Anyone over 12 can take two different types, lithium carbonate and lithium citrate. Doses vary depending on age and what you're being treated for, but it's usually taken once a day at night.

    WATCH – 'SO DEEP!'

    Britney Spears' fans were left shocked by the star's "real" low singing voice.

    The 39-year-old sounded dramatically different to her usual fairly high-pitched tone as she sang Madonna's Like A Prayer in a resurfaced video from 2001.

    Britney was seen looking fresh-faced and singing in a lower than usual voice to Madonna's cult hit during an interview.

    The video went viral after a TikTok account dedicated to conspiracies shared it, writing: "Britney's real voice before they made her sing and talk with a baby voice for years."

       BRIT'S BESEECH

      Britney begged her lawyer, Sam Ingham, “four times a week” to end her “abusive” conservatorship after claiming she wants him replaced on her team. 

      Now, someone who once in a relationship with Britney claimed to the NY Post that she has actually attempted to end the controlling court agreement for years but has not found any success. 

      The ex-boyfriend – who did not want to go public due to fears of retribution from the Spears family – said he was “most angered” when he heard Britney’s lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham III, tell the court that she had never asked to end the conservatorship.

      “She asked [her lawyer, Sam] four or five times a week to end the conservatorship and they would always give her some sort of BS.

      “Ingham used the word ‘formally.’ What does that even mean when someone calls you four times a week [asking], ‘How do I end this?’  I hope she sues the s**t out of them for this. I will testify if it comes to that,” the unnamed insider said.

      HOW DID FREE BRITNEY START?

      In 2009, FreeBritney.net was launched in response to her court-approved conservatorship – a form of legal guardianship.

      It grants a chosen individual full authority over another’s life and assets.

      The conservator typically holds the same rights and responsibilities as a parent would over a child.

      It is typically enacted for individuals who are incapable of making their own decisions.

      The website later sparked the movement as more fans learned of the conservatorship.
