As the whole world watched, Britney Spears locked herself in her home with her youngest child, Jayden James, leaving even the most ardent fan doubting her sanity and ability to raise JJ and his older brother, Sean Preston.

But only a few weeks earlier, it was a very different Britney that sat for an interview and photos with her adorable little mistakes as photographer Dani Brubaker snapped pics for the upcoming issue of celebrity gossip magazine, OK!

Britney and Sons

OK! loves the Spears family almost as much as Us Weekly.

"She was very loving," photographer Brubaker said. "She told me she loved her children and that they are her life."

Far from being the neglectful parent some portray her as, the photographer tells OK! that Britney was "very attentive" to the needs of her sons.

NOTE: We really wonder how much Lynne Spears got paid for this story.

As for the 26-year-old singer's reaction to the cute photos of her with her sons, Brubaker reveals a reaction of a loving, possibly crazy mom.

"I'm told that when she saw the photographs, she literally cried for over an hour and stared at them all night long," she said. Literally.

NOTE: That could've just been the alcohol and pills, of course.

Regardless, the troubled singer is "inconsolable" right now as the chance of her winning the custody battle for her children looks bleak.

"Those boys are her everything, and she's said repeatedly that life isn't worth living if she can't have her babies with her," says a friend.

The friend adds that Britney Spears would say goodbye to the music business (wait, that didn't happen in 2003?) just to look after her boys.

"The only reason she's doing this is because she wants them to look up to her onstage and be like, ‘That's my mama,' and be proud of her."

"She'd put her life before them and would die for Jayden James and Preston. They're her whole world. "Britney has always said, ‘I would die for my boys if that's what it took to prove I loved them. I'd do anything for them.'"

You heard her, fans. Britney would do anything.

Even humiliating herself by parading around in no underwear, running red lights with them in the back seat, dumping them on nannies to go party, and holding them hostage during a three-hour standoff at her mansion. Anything.

It looks like Jayden James and Sean Preston Federline may be getting a makeover... or at least appearing in the mind of Britney Spears from time to time.

The "singer" stopped and shopped 'til she frickin' dropped Friday afternoon in Bel Bambini, spending more than $2,000 on her sons in the L.A. baby boutique.

Hot Brit

Among Britney Spears' purchases were white and black tuxedos for each boy. And four pairs of dress shoes. Aww. Going to be attending a formal event, lil' guys?

That's all very cute. We love Sean and Jayden. It's nice to see that while she's not running red lights with them in the car, Brit is paying them some attention!

No word on whether Britney bought any pants or underwear for herself during the excursion. Our guess is she did not. Girl doesn't have much use for either.

Through some miracle and/or loophole, Britney Spears regained visitation rights of her sons, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, over the weekend.

Saturday, the quote-unquote star was spotted driving with her two young children in Studio City, Calif., in her white Mercedes convertible.

The car, which she recently used to run over the foot of a celebrity news photographer, was decorated with pumpkins on the dashboard. Cute.

A presumed court-appointed monitor was seated in the front seat, with her sons in the rear. Here's a picture of Jayden James looking happy as ever ...

Jayden James Federline wears a familiar look of confusion and despair.

On Wednesday, L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon had temporarily suspended her visitation rights. A source close to Spears and the custody case said he removed her visitation rights after the pop "singer" was unreachable by a cell phone designated for court-related scheduling.

Thursday, Kevin Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, said he expected Britney Spears would get visitation reinstated soon because "she has now complied with the part of the order [causing the suspension]."

Lawyers for both sides did not respond to calls for comment. Spears and K-Fed are both required to show up for their next hearing October 26.

Starbucks in hand and throngs of celebrity news photographers in pursuit, Britney Spears visited with her kids and ran errands, stopping by the local car wash and cell phone store. Probably needs a plan with more anytime minutes.

All in a day's work for a fallen star and train wreck.

Wild Wild Hair

Prior to running her errands, the "singer" enjoyed supervised visit with sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, on Monday. The court has ordered that Spears must be monitored while with the kids. Always a good sign for a young mother.

After some court-supervised fun, Britney handed off the little mistakes off to K-Fed's bodyguards, who shuttled them safely back to Kevin Federline's house.

Britney Spears is all smiles. And possibly drunk at all times.

After sending them away, the sad star then went back inside her own house with her own mother, Lynne Spears, by her side. Well, at least one Spears mom and her kids seem to be okay. Jamie Lynn Spears is also in town!

While mom's away, Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline will play... and be pushed around in little toy cars by a random nanny person. See below.

Jayden and His Mom

On their first day under custody of father Kevin Federline, young Sean Preston (2) and Jayden James (1) motored around outside Federline's home in Tarzana, Calif.

During the short ride, Sean Preston and Jayden James fussed at times but cheered up when their nanny picked a flower for them to play with. They cry and whine less than their estranged mother, the frequently drunk Britney Spears.

Spears was stripped of custody last week, but will be allowed closely monitored, supervised visitation rights as of yesterday, a judge ordered.

The arrangement was decided at a three-hour closed-door session attended by Federline, who was wearing an eye patch because, his lawyer says, "His eye was sore." No further explanation was given. Britney Spears did not attend.

Britney Spears grabbed dinner at a Greek restaurant, Taverna Tony's, in Malibu on Sunday with - of course - sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, several male assistants and about 100 celebrity news photographers in tow.

As you can see, Jayden James Federline looks thrilled by the whole scene...

Apparently Britney Spears stopped off for a meal after taking paparazzi for a drive around Beverly Hills, then returning to Malibu without getting out of the car.

Check out the video below of Spears and the kids leaving the place. At least she wasn't wearing no underwear on this day, but she did manage to crawl under a car seat and flash photographers. Yup, no way you can avoid that one!


It's about time. We were starting to worry. After all, what's a day the world of celebrity gossip without some video footage from up Britney Spears' skirt?

After imploding on the MTV Video Music Awards, being dumped by her manager (Jeff Kwatinetz) and lawyer (Laura Wasser), and being forced into counseling in order to keep custody of her sons, Britney Spears is facing her darkest days.

Unfortunately, her problems aren't just affecting the 25-year-old pop star, reports Us Weekly in its cover story - they're having a negative impact on her two children, Jayden James Federline, 1, and Sean Preston Federline, 2.

"Dealing with the children after they come back from Britney's is really hard on Kevin," says a source close to Kevin Federline. "Sometimes it takes three days to get them back on any type of schedule."

Mommy is Crying

And it turns out Britney Spears' friends and family aren't the only ones who have expressed great concern over the singer's (disturbing lack of) parenting skills.

In a closed hearing on September 18, the L.A. Superior Court issued a list of rules Britney Spears must follow to maintain shared custody of her children.

These stipulations include meeting with a parenting coach for a minimum of eight hours a week, and having supervised sessions with counselors and her children.

Yet at least one family source actually tries to defend Britney Spears, saying a lack of education is to blame for her recent problems.

"She loves her children so much, but she's never been taught how to properly take care of them," said the source, claiming a maternal bond seems to be missing. "She looks lifeless. It's like she doesn't understand the impact of being a mother."

Boy. Thank goodness The Hollywood Gossip staff writers all went to college and took classes to learn that partying every night is not the way to be a good mom.

He's one. She's 25. Yet the precious little Jayden James Federline seems to have a better grasp of reality than does his crazy mama these days.

Not only that, but he seems more adept at everyday tasks. Such as putting on pants (at least diapers) and leaving the house fully clothed.

It's a state of affairs that's not lost on l'il Jayden ...

Britney Spears is falling out of her clothes. Again. Who knows if she's got any pants or underwear on. Sigh. Even Jayden James has to be shaking his head by now.

Being the focal point of celebrity gossip can be trying, but Jayden James, who turned one Wednesday, and his older bro Sean Preston, who's two years old today, can take solace in the fact that they somehow survived another year - while appearing smarter than Britney Spears and Kevin Federline combined.

And in a few years, they'll be able to make a run for it.

It's been a long year, but Jayden James Federline has defied critics and unlikely odds in surviving a full calendar year and turning one today, September 12!

Let's take a look back at Jayden James Federline's first year:

Sean Preston and Jayden James Plea For Help

September 12, 2006: Born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. at 2 a.m., weighing 6 lbs., 11 oz. Cloaked in mystery (and blankets) immediately.

September 20, 2006: Goes home from the hospital and into Britney's Malibu house of horrors. We were thinking his name was Sutton Pierce Federline.

October 24, 2006: We learn Sutton Pierce is really Jayden James. Yeah, we will never live that down. Unless we stop bringing it up.

February 2007: Grainy pics of Jayden James start to emerge here and there, while the tyke visits mom in rehab a couple of times.

March-May 2007: Agencies take many more celebrity photos purportedly of Jayden James, but no confirmed sightings occur.

June 6, 2007: Played in the pool with Brit's quote-unquote cousin, Alli Sims. In other news, Sean Preston had an epic wedgie.

July 9, 2007: Swam naked with Daimon Shippen.

July 21, 2007: The first real, clear photos of Jayden James Federline are released. At 10 months, kid already has more hair than Britney's vagina.

August 1, 2007: Jayden James and Sean Preston appear on their first big magazine cover: Us Weekly! Begging for help, and to be set free!

August 14, 2007: Accompanies mom to dinner, where he has an accident and gets changed as celebrity gossip photographers watch and take pics.

September 4, 2007: Recoils in horror from the back seat of the car as his increasingly insane mom kisses his Spider-man doll.

September 9, 2007: While his crazy mama imploded on stage at the MTV VMAs, then partied in no pants, JJ and his big bro Sean P. celebrated his birthday with a pool party at the home of his relatively sane parent.

Aww. Look at Jayden James. Happy birthday, l'il fella. We're pulling for you.
