Kevin Federline focused on being 'the best parent he can be'
With his divorce from Britney Spears, 25, final, Kevin Federline, 29, is now focused on being ‘the best parent that he can be,’ his attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told The Associated Press in an interview on Tuesday.
Mark continued by saying that Kevin is going to give his children, Sean Preston, 22 months and Jayden James, 10 months, as normal of a life as possible, out of the media spotlight.
When they are with him, he is going to shield his children from unwanted media attention. You will not find a picture of Kevin parading with the children out in a public place. He’s focused right now on being the best parent that he can be.
Mark also explained how Kevin faces demands that the average father does not have to face such as needing a nanny and security guards when he takes the children out in public, which he adds is a huge out of pocket expense. He added,
There are people you have to pay so your kids can pretend they’re like everyone else. When you are a celebrity parent, there are financial dynamics that others not familiar with it can’t understand.
Still, Mr. Kaplan wants to make clear that Britney and Kevin will not be engaging in a war of worlds, and plan to keep custody issues private.
He doesn’t want to do anything that would be perceived as taking her down a peg. His goal is to keep things between him and Britney private. There’s a proper forum to discuss issues with a co-parent. That place is not in the public eye.
Kevin and Britney married in a secret ceremony in September of 2004 and their divorce became final this week.
Also coming out in defense of Britney after negative tabloid coverage this week is her former assistant Alli Sims, who tells People,
She’s a wonderful mom and she is so hands-on…Britney loves those babies to death. And they adore her.
