I seriously doubt that Britney was abusing her children. I think this is one of many dishonest attempts K-Fed has been making to get more of her money in is pocket. Too bad he doesn't use all the time he spends trying to trash his x actually working for a living.

Fake People Suck    

Okay really when did K-Fed really do anything that should deem him unfit........But it is time after time the Britney keeps making her lack of parenting public.
I am not a fan of his but I think that this has very little to do with him being a gold digger............AND FYI his ex that he has the other children with came out a while back and said that he steps up as a Dad but the children are not to be left alone with Britney.
I really don't think that this is a "lesser of two evils" situation she is unstable and is probable one pill short of total self destruction.

Somehow I think the kids are safer with Britney and K-Fed than those poor little drag a longs of Brad and Angelina. They should look into Brad and Angie's gypsy parenting.

getting tired of crap    

I don't really care about her but this stinks like 10 day old fish. Sounds more like a shakedown than anything else.

It is about time! I hope they make the kids dependents of the court. That way, on-going supervision by CPS will be required. There should be MONITORED VISITS, if any. Just this weekend, she left those boys again to drive to Las Vegas with two men. She was stopped by the CHP for speeding. It is clear she has no desire nor the ability to care for the children. She has been given many opportunities to improve her parenting and has only gotten worse, imo.

If they don't stop their bickering on who gets who and who gets what?They are both
gonna end up losing those poor little innocent babies.They are so wrapped up in themselves that they do are not even THINKING right.If they both BASH each other,then they are admitting that neither one of them is responsible enough to care for two young boys.They are putting themselves first,not the babies.Very inconsiderate and spoiled,and they are looking to sink each other.They should be standing side by side and GROW UP when it comes to their sons and raise them together but apart.Be resposible befoe both babies become wards of the courts and they lose them to someone who WANTS TO and WILL RAISE THEM RIGHT.The child protective agency should be there right now showing both britanny and kevin how serious this is.It's not about who can supoena the most witnesses against each other,or whose bad ass than the other.Its' about 2 beautiful,innocent little boys who did not ask to be put into the situation and had no choice but are now being the middle of all sorts of bull crap.Please both parties should grow up and see the babies for what they are babies and not publicity stunts or pawns

If this is true, then this is a waste of time for them. There are so many children out there who are being physically, emotionally, and verbally abused, they are spending their time on one parent who has done none of the above. This deserves a SERIOUSLY?

Seriousley people, leave this poor girl alone! "Kfed" is a total douche bag and wants her $$ that is really all that it boilsdown to. Really what has she done? For those of you with kids, how many times have you been carrying your baby and tripped or taken your kids for a ride in a convertable. Where is the media when my son tripped in the parking lot of walmart? Come on we hav all F***** up once or twice the only difference is that the world is watching her and not us. Think of what your life would look like if a camera followed you 24/7 and the world only got to see what would sell. We only get to see the bad and the ugly not the good.
