Britney Awarded Overnight Visits With Sons
Britney Spears was awarded overnight privileges with her sons, PEOPLE confirms. The pop star hasn't had her children overnight since January following her forced hospitalization at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
A closed-door hearing Tuesday, attended by Britney and her ex, Kevin Federline, also saw the return of Britney's first divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, who has officially replaced Stacy Phillips. L.A. Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini confirmed that Brit's parenting coach attended the hearing and made statements to the court, and that Brit's demeanor before the commissioner was "businesslike." "I think any judge is pleased to see progress being made by parties in a case," Parachini added.
Details of the hearing's outcome were not announced. But a source confirms for PEOPLE that Britney will now be allowed to have her sons Sean Preston, 2 1/2, and Jayden James, 1 1/2, with her overnight. The former couple face a custody trial in August, unless they can settle their case amicably out of court. Their next hearing is set for July 15. The overnight visits were first reported by TMZ.com.
