Surely it isn't easy being Britney Spears.  With a series of recent death threats to the star, Britney decided it was best not to take her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James on the Russia leg of her tour.

The boys have been by their mother's side during the European venues of her Circus Tour.  After receiving numerous email threats to her life, it was decided that her boys would remain in London with a family member.

Britney, reportedly afraid to be in Russia, spent a night in Finland but regained her composure and headed to St. Petersburg on Friday.  On Tuesday the singer will perform in Moscow before boarding her private jet for the trip back to London to be reunited with her kids.
