Britney Spears denied access to sons

Court fails to grant the singer's appeal

Britney Spears is still being denied access to her sons, after a court appeal by the singer yesterday (February 19).

Spears remains banned from monitored visits after refusing to hand her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, aged two and one respectively, back to ex-husband Kevin Federline and the authorities last month.

Federline was granted primary custody of the children by a Los Angeles court in October.

The singer’s lawyer Anne Kiley also asked the court to gag other lawyers involved in the case from discussing it in the media, but this was denied.

Federline’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told reporters: “Both sides want to see the day that visitation can resume. It’s a question of working out the details of how that can happen. Mr Federline looks forward to his children having their mom in their life.”
