London (ANI): Britney Spears was so distraught during her first
joint parenting session with ex-husband Kevin Federline since
losing custody of her kids that she “bawled like a baby."
The Toxic singer, who lost custody of her two sons, Sean
Preston, two, and 13-month-old Jayden James earlier this month, and
Federline arrived at the Beverly Hills Hotel for their first
Parenting Without Conflict meeting on Oct 24.
Though the former pop princess "wasn't nervous" about the
meeting, she was seen crying hysterically in a hotel bathroom soon
after arriving. “Britney was inconsolable. She was sobbing in the
toilet cubicle and couldn't be calmed down," the Daily Mail quoted
an onlooker, as saying.
The six week program teaches cooperative parenting and
communication skills, and is one of several requirements that L.A.
Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon ordered Britney to
"Instead of saying 'You're always bringing the kids home late
because you're an insensitive jerk." We teach parents instead to
say 'When you bring the kids home late, I feel like you're not
valuing my time, and I feel hurt or angry as a result,"" Craig
Ogulnick, a supervisor for the program, said.
Both Kevin and Britney are required in court on Oct 26 for a
progress review, and must have completed at least three joint
co-parenting counselling sessions together. Besides, Spears is also
required to complete three individual counselling sessions "to
address parenting issues."
