Honoree Britney Spears attends the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on April 12, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

Britney Spears has signed off on her ex-husband Kevin Federline to move with their two children to Hawaii. But the pop star isn’t thrilled about their private business becoming  a public spectacle. Per ET, Spears’ lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, wrote a letter to Federline’s attorney yesterday (May 31), informing him that she doesn’t intend to interfere with Federline’s plans to uproot the family and relocate to Hawaii. Spears has offered her full consent.

In the letter, Rosengart slams Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, for publicizing the matter and “creating unnecessary drama and a false ‘dispute’ by publicly discussing the issue.” He added that in doing so, “it was undignified, ungracious, and unnecessary.” A source told the publication that “Britney loves and has always supported her children and wants them to be happy.”

Kaplan issued the following statement: “I responded to Mr. Rosengart about how I feel about that, and I am not going to involve myself in an involuntary pen-pal relationship with him.” As for K-Fed’s reaction, Kaplan said, “I’m sure Kevin is very pleased. He needs to make plans for the move, and these plans take months to put it into effect.”

As we recently reported, Kaplan sent a letter asking if she would be open to letting their sons Jayden James, 16, and Sean Preston, 17, move with their dad and stepmom, Victoria Prince. With Spears consenting to the move, it avoids Kaplan having to take the drastic step of having to formally make the request in court.

Why Hawaii?

Federline said Spears, 41, hasn’t seen her boys in over a year and that they were “very excited” to relocate. As for why the move to Hawaii, Federline has DJ opportunities there, and Prince has a job offer at a university. Federline’s sons are eager to make the move sometime in July, at which point Jayden would continue classes remotely, and Sean will have already graduated.

Kaplan further elaborated on why he sent the letter to Spears. “Even though Kevin has sole legal custody over the existing orders,” he said. “And even though Kevin has had what we call defacto sole physical custody or, for the last 15 months or more, the law still requires you to get the consent of the other co-parent.” Kaplan confirmed that there hadn’t been “any exercise of visitation or custody in the last year,” and he believes Spears would “do the smart thing and not object.”

Britney Spears' Sons Are Angry At Her, Haven't Spoken In Months

Britney Spears has not seen her sons in five months because they feel uncomfortable around her and have received upsetting texts from her, according to ex-husband Kevin Federline’s lawyer.

Per gossip website TMZ, after the singer posted to Instagram (and has since deleted the post) about her relationship with her kids Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15. Federline’s lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan said Federline has never trash-talked her to their kids. According to Kaplan, the teenagers made the decision to stay away from their mother on their own and that they have not had a single overnight stay with Britney in years. Kaplan added that Federline believes the boys love their mom, but they’re angry at her.

Kevin is annoyed Britney referred to his house as having “more weed than Ludacris, 50 Cent, Jay-Z and Puff Daddy combined!!!!”

Britney’s lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, released a statement in response to Kevin sharing private videos on Instagram: “Britney Spears is a brilliantly-talented, extremely-hardworking icon, who is rightfully beloved and respected by millions around the world. The same, unfortunately, can not be said about Mr. Federline, who for reasons that are inexplicable, decided to give a gratuitous interview that has hurt the mother of his children.”

Britney’s husband Sam Asghari came to his wife’s defense on Instagram, writing about Federline, “His character is revealed by approval of the cruel 13 CShip and his loyalty to Jaimie indicates his approval at time of its conception as well.”

Asghari’s concluded his Story with a laugh, writing, “I will not comment on this matter again except to say I have a job,” with a crying laughing emoji.
