The Britney Spears Circus tour is getting rave reviews from those closest to the singer - her siblings, cousins, her ex-husand and their two sons.

"Britney's whole family was there, her parents Jamie and Lynn Spears, [sister] Jamie Lynn Spears, [brother] Bryan Spears, his wife Graciella Sanchez, her cousins [including] Laura Lynn [Covington], friends from Kentwood – everyone thought it was a fantastic show and she just nailed it," a source close to Spears tells People.

The source was referring to the Louisiana native's kickoff concert Tuesday night at the New Orleans Arena, the first stop on her 36-show tour.

Added the source: "They all thought Britney was so amazing – her energy, her spirit."

Also in attendance: the singer's sons Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2, and their dad Kevin Federline. "He was there to support her as well," says the source, adding that the boys stayed backstage as "it's just too loud for them."

The "spectacular" (to quote her manager Larry Rudolph) Cirque du Soleil-style show also got the thumbs-up from fans, and marks the pop star's first tour in five years and comes after a year of getting her life back together.

After a brief stop in the Magic Kingdom Theme Park in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Spears hit Atlanta last night, with 10 shows on the East Coast to follow.

Kevin Federline can produce kids.

Sweet lord, can he ever. No one will ever take that away from the fertile one. But does that mean he can produce a successful kids clothing line?

Apparently, he's going to try, having been inspired by these lean economic times (which is ironic, as his ballooning waistline is very far from lean).

Given the state of economy, Kevin Federline can't fathom throwin' down $200 for phat True Religion jeans for his boyz, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

So, according to a Women's Wear Daily report, he wants to start a children's clothing line - and is in talks with Gerard Guez about a licensing deal.

Kevin Federline, who made an overnight stop at a Las Vegas trade show in the interest of research, said he was scoping out the styles for inspiration.

"It's a tough business, I'm trying to take it seriously and make a quality product, but not have parents pay $500 or something ridiculous for a pair of jeans," said K-Fed, who receives $20,000 a month in child support from Britney Spears.

"You buy your kids a pair of True Religions then they roll around in the dirt like kids do and a $200 pair of jeans is gone," the FedEx man added. "With this economy, I’m just looking to do something much more reasonable."

He plans on calling the new clothing like Federleezy Fo Yo Bad Economeezy. Just kidding. No word yet on the name of the line or a release date.

Would you allow your kids wear Kevin Federline's clothes? Chances are, they'd include a ton of faux diamonds and be four sizes too big.

It's finally official: Britney Spears will go on her Circus tour, and Sean Preston and Jayden James will come with her. But this comes at a hefty price.

Jamie Spears and Kevin Federline have both signed a document which clears the path for Britney taking her kids on the road for her upcoming tour.

What, you ask, is in it for the FedEx man, who could have nixed this arrangement and put The Circus Starring Britney Spears in serious jeopardy?

Just $5,000 a week. What a steal.

The way the tour deal goes is Jayden James and Sean Preston will follow Britney Spears to three "hubs" - New Jersey, New Orleans and Los Angeles.

Britney will commute back and forth from each hub during the tour.

She's also renting houses in N.J. and New Orleans for K-Fed if he wants to come along. But K-Fed gets the $5,000 a week, whether he shows up or not.

Interestingly, the deal Jamie Spears and K-Fed signed effectively kills the custody arrangement they have all been following since last year.

Britney gets the kids three days and nights a week, according to the new agreement, which will remain in effect after the tour is over.

Many weeks, Britney will actually have the kids more than Kevin, so in effect it's 50/50 custody. Score one for Team Britney ... and for Team Kevin, since we all know the guy wanted more time to party in Las Vegas with Victoria Prince anyway.

Despite Britney Spears' blog proclaiming that Sean Preston and Jayden James will be joining her for her Circus tour, Kevin Federline's camp insists no deal is done.

"We are working toward that," K-Fed's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan said.

"There can be an agreement reached in probably the next day, but there is not an agreement that is signed at this point," he added.

Mark Vincent Kaplan says they are still hammering out the finals details, but the basic agreement will allow Britney Spears to see her two sons on "pretty much the same schedule that she has now," which is around three days a week.

The FedEx man will travel with the kids to certain tour "bases" - big cities where Britney will stay with S & J in between concerts in the vicinity.

Kevin Federline "is working to make [Sean Preston and Jayden James] accessible by going to various central locations in various areas of the country."

'He is doing that because he wants her to be able to have the maximum positive environment around her to assure the tour will be successful," says Kaplan.

The $4,000 per week Britney is offering probably helps.

Having nearly cleared an important legal hurdle, it looks like it will be off to the circus for Britney Spears and her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James!

The pop star's upcoming two-month tour was reportedly in trouble because of a snag over whether she could travel with her two boys. No longer.

"Both Sean Preston and Jayden James will, in fact, be joining Britney throughout the duration of her tour," says Britney Spears' official blog today.

Britney's ex, Kevin Federline, has primary custody of the boys, ages 3 and 2, but she has nearly 50-50 access to them in terms of visitation rights.

Spears said she was prepared to nix the tour if the boys could not come. K-Fed's lawyers threatened not to allow that if he weren't properly compensated.

Officially, it's still not a done deal... nothing has been signed. Though a lot of progress was made yesterday and a deal is expected to be in place soon.

Her widely-anticipated, blockbuster Circus tour kicks off March 3 in New Orleans. "Britney Spears is so excited to kick off her tour," her blog says.

"Britney has been enjoying every moment of rehearsals and is looking forward to performing in front of a live audience again. It's sexy, fun, explosive, and full of surprises," says designer Jamie King of the impending Circus.

We're just happy Sean and Jayden will be joining her.

Britney Spears is prepared to cancel her upcoming Circus tour if lawyers for ex-husband Kevin Federline continue to block an agreement allowing her to take the kids on the road, according to a report on celeb news site TMZ.

For weeks, Britney, K-Fed and her father Jamie Spears have been privately hashing out a plan to let the kids travel with Britney on her world tour.

The plan is to have homes in three bases - New Jersey, New Orleans and Los Angeles. Sean Preston and Jayden James would stay in one of these three bases and mom would commute back and forth while doing concerts in each region.

Then there's this strange fact: Britney Spears is prepared to pay the FedEx man in excess of $4,000 per week for every week in which she's on tour.

The way the deal goes... Britney would get Kevin his own pad in each of the three "bases" and he wouldn't even have to show up to get the money! Why, you ask, would she pay him if he doesn't show? You can figure it out.

Is The Circus Starring Britney Spears, set to kick off March 3, in jeopardy?

Here's the deal: Britney, K-Fed and Jamie - who also got restraining orders against three shady characters from Britney's past in what's been an active week for him - worked out the arrangement without the help of any lawyers.

A week ago, however, attorneys for Kevin Federline became aware of the plan and were furious, thinking that Jamie Spears went behind their backs.

Now K-Fed's lawyers say they object to the plan but won't specifically say why, and Kevin apparently doesn't have the cojones to stand up to them.

Britney Spears - who now has close to a 50-50 custody arrangement in place and a long-term agreement worked out with K-Fed which would extend said arrangement - WILL cancel the tour if she can't take her kids. Stay tuned ...

Who can resist family and a good barbeque? Certainly not Kevin Federline. Dude has certainly shown he can eat. A lot. Puts Jessica Simpson to shame.

The FedEx man accepted an invitation to join his ex-wife Britney Spears and their sons for a family barbeque on Sunday afternoon at Spears' new home.

Sources say Federline - sans Victoria Prince, his new girlfriend - arrived at Britney's new house Sunday at about noon to pick up his sons Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden Jaymes, 2, from their weekend visitation with Britney Spears.

K-Fed took time away from the golf course for a family outing.

At the star's new pad, K-Fed was invited in by Spears' father, Jamie Spears, who calls all the shots in her life after all, for a good ol' fashioned family BBQ.

He left with Sean Preston and Jayden James around 5 p.m.

While they may never be together again, it's good to see these parents on good terms. Click to enlarge some Britney and K-Fed pics from the olden daze:

Britney Spears is gonna frickin' tweak when she reads this.

K-Fed and his new girlfriend, Victoria Prince, took Sean Preston and Jayden James out for dinner at a Japanese restaurant in Fresno this weekend, where it was plain to see that Prince embraced the kids - and the role of interim mom.

Jayden looks like he's doing a good job spying on her for Brit ...

Victoria Prince: Interim Mom

Victoria Prince looks like a natural carrying Jayden James.

Wonder how Britney feels about someone with Victoria Prince's shady past spending so much time with the kids. Then again, Britney's parenting was so poor that she lost the right to be with Sean and Jayden unsupervised for a time.

You gotta hand it to V-Prince, she looks like she's up to the task. How much longer until Kevin Federline puts a baby in that and she gives birth to his fifth offspring? We give it until the end of 2009. Dude is like a fertility god.

With a new cocktail of antidepressants outlook for her life and a really short leash rejuvenated career, Britney Spears is about to change addresses.

"I just took my babies to our new home and they loved it! I can't wait to move in," the recovering pop superstar says on her official Web site.

Sean Preston and Jayden James are also barely toilet trained (if that), but hey, their opinion counts. As long as they're not neglecting their spying duties.

Spears, 27, who has visitation rights – including overnights – with her sons Jayden James, 2, and Sean Preston, 3, has put her six-bedroom, six-bathroom Studio City, Calif., house on the market for more than $7 million.

There was no official word on where the new house is, although reports are surfacing that it's this one: "Chateau Suenos" in Calabasas, north of L.A.:

The troubled pop star looked at the same house last summer and is now reported to be renting it whilst she has another one built in the same area. Looks kind of lame, but hey, to each their own. No tennis court and polo grounds? Weak.

This hilarious, made-up celebrity gossip story comes to us courtesy of the National Enquirer and Showbiz Spy. It's important to consider the source.

Britney Spears is so desperate, these venerable publications state, to know more about Kevin Federline's deadbeat girlfriend Victoria Prince, she has asked her two young children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, to "spy" on the couple.

The singer - who divorced Federline in 2007 - is said to be so jealous that she has Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2, to report back on what their father gets up to with Prince, a six-foot-tall blonde and former volleyball standout.

"Britney has asked her boys what Victoria Prince is like and if she spends the night," says a source. "She has also asked her bodyguards to milk information out of Kevin's bodyguards and quizzed his nanny and friends."

"She's been texting people, asking what's up with him and Victoria."

As for K-Fed - who the story says is aware Britney wants him to father her third child (?!) - he is enjoying his ex-wife's anguish over his new romance.

"Kevin says that when [Britney Spears] tells him she doesn't care if he dates, she says it with a lot of emotion, like she really does care. It pleases him that she is jealous," says the source. "He wants her to want him back."
