Britney Spears Parenting Skills In Question Again
Britney Spears’ parenting skills are under fire again. Britney’s court-appointed monitor turned in a “very damaging report” October 22, a source close to her ongoing custody case with ex Kevin Federline told Usmagazine.com. The paperwork, filed under seal to LA Superior Court, claims that “[Britney] paid her [monitor] no attention or respect at all, as if she were some employee whom she could blow off,” the source says.
“Britney’s often distracted and in her own world when she has the kids [Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1] and has a hard time focusing,” the insider adds. “She is adamant that she doesn’t have to listen to anybody — that it’s her way or the highway." Parenting sessions had previously been at Britney’s residence, the source says, but the coach now wants meetings to take place at her office. “She doesn’t want all the distractions, whether it’s the paparazzi or whatever else is going on,” the source says.
Adds the source: “Britney needs to focus on improving her parenting skills and prove that she really wants these kids.” Britney is due in court for the custody battle October 26, and the judge “will not look favorably upon” her, the source says. “This is a very damning report. Who knows if Britney will even show?”
