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 complete.
"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."
