Shar Jackson Helps Ex Kevin Federline With Sean And Jayden (Britney's Boys)
Embroiled in an ongoing custody battle with ex-wife Britney Spears, Kevin Federline nevertheless is trying to see that all four of his offspring get along, thanks to a helping hand from former girlfriend Shar Jackson.
Shar who has two children: Kori, 5, and Kaleb, 3, with Kevin says that she watches Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 13 months, who are Kevin's kids with Britney. "We definitely make sure the kids all bond together," Shar told reporters Tuesday night at EA's Launch For The Need For Speed Game in L.A. "I mean, they're siblings, they need each other." Shar has two older children from a relationship with a high school boyfriend, Donnie, 16, and Cassie, 12. No word on if her two older kids have contact with Sean and Jayden.
Shar also stresses that she and Kevin strive to keep their family closely knit, despite whatever differences she and he might have. "We're not together or anything but we're definitely still a family unit," says Shar, who perhaps remains best known professionally for her portrayal of Niecy on the 1996-2001 UPN show Moesha.
Best of Friends
"Honestly," says Shar, "we're like the best of friends. Obviously, the relationship didn't work out for a reason, and we're cool with that. But we're still a part of each other's lives. And our children get to see two people who aren't together but still have a great relationship, and I think that's really important."
Shar, who in the past has repeatedly praised Kevin's parenting skills, says she exclusively trusts him with her kids. "I know he's in a good place," she says, "the kids are in a good place, and I made sure from day one – I told him, 'You make sure you have our children.'“ And just how is K-Fed holding up in the fight with Britney over their kids? "He's great," says Shar. "We don't even talk about that stuff, because that would be a non-stop conversation, and we don't even go there."
