Britney Spears Chose Fame Over Sean Preston and Jayden James, Celebrity Gossip Magazine Sort of Says

by at . Comments

At least that's what we think OK! is going for with the headline below, WHAT PRICE FAME? Not sure what that's supposed to mean exactly, but we assume the point is that Britney Spears' return to superstardom came at a price.

And a heavy price at that.

She has a #1 album in Circus, boasts three hot singles in the title track, "Womanizer" and "If U Seek Amy," and is planning a world tour starting March 3.

But it's no secret that, as she starts to climb back to the top, there are sacrifices she's had to make - namely little Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2.

OK! claims the singer paid an the extraordinary price for her comeback, voluntarily giving up the fight to regain custody of her boys in exchange for fame.

Last fall, as her upcoming concert tour was being organized, Britney's camp discovered that due to her history, they could not purchase insurance for her tour unless she was still under the conservatorship of her father Jamie Spears.

Until that point, the plan was for the conservatorship to be lifted December 31, at which point Brit would file for custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James.

But an insider tells OK!, "The insurance situation changed everything."

Therefore, on October 28, the singer agreed to accept her father as her conservator - a decision which meant she would still legally be considered a child and no judge would give her custody of her kids, nor would K-Fed allow it.

"Whether it was her decision or whether she was pressured into it, Britney's deal with the devil put the tour ahead of the kids," says an insider.

If that's true, it's pretty sad (and we blame Larry Rudolph). Those photos from brother Bryan's wedding sure were cute, but it looks like Sean and Jayden are just occasional props, and never real priorities, for this star.

I think Britney is good at being her and the boys should stay with their father. I hope she doesn't fight for full (or half) custody ever.

she is tiring to who at is better for her children when she is in the best mental state and physical health and earn a living so K fed would look bad don't you people know that she is tiring to show that she is being responsible so she has a better chance of getting the boys for visitation rights and a tour is no place for babys she is acting very mature I am happy for she is an inspiration to because she got out of bad mental state with the whole world laughing in her face except me,Chris Crocker,famous Richard,and her devoted fans.

She is damned if she do and damned if she don't. Someone has to work in that family. I actually believe she made a sound adult decision by leaving her dad as her conservator. K-fed never gets off his boney ass to provide for them. How did that prick come out smelling like a rose, he is still an a-hole in my book. Perhaps she is busting her butt so she will have an inheritance to leave her kids.

I don't really believe this. Even if it is true I think she would only make that decision because she knows they would be better off with Kevin anyway and she could not take care of them 24/7. It's not like she will never see them. I feel bad for her. She has got so much crappy untrue press recently. Magazines make up stuff about her because she doesn't do all the wild stuff anymore, and we know all that was true. It's a shame.

I just think that ok is desperate for a story since she's not into any crazy antics anymore that sell magazines. Don't worry, I'm sure that before or just after the start of the tour, there will be some really big, really public craziness on Britney's part that will be everything the tabloid magazines/websites dream of.

I can't say that I'm always for the Britney camp. But I find it sad that nobody ever stops to think that maybe she (and whomever she makes descisions with) made a healthy descision for her kids by leaving custody with k-fed and thus saving them (somewhat) from the crazy lifestyle that full time Britney custody would entail. It's not as if she doesn't ever see them obviously, I mean she's Britney Spears for goodness sake! I dunno, I just think that ok is desperate for a story since she's not into any crazy antics anymore that sell magazines. Sad.

She's a great mother but she still has to earn a living.
