Spears married Kevin Federline in 2004. They welcomed their sons, Sean Preston, and Jayden James.

When the divorce was finalized in 2007, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline both reached an agreement based on a 50-50 split of custody of their kids. However, the court decided to hand over the physical custody of the kids to Kevin Federline due to Britney’s continuous use of alcohol and drugs. 

The battle over custody between her and Federline became much worse when the singer refused to give custody of her kids to her ex. On police intervention, she was found to have locked herself with Jayden, her younger son. This had an adverse effect on the entire custody drama. Kevin Federline won sole physical and sole legal custody of the kids.

Britney hit rock bottom in 2007 when her struggle with mental illness, addiction, forced conservatorship, and the full-blown custody battle with Kevin Federline took a toll on her. She was charged countless times with hit-and-run, crashing into a car, and driving without a license. Britney was even spotted driving with her infant on her lap. Spears failed to produce a California driving license during the trial and made headlines when she attacked a photographer’s car with an umbrella. The pop queen was even spotted shaving her head in the salon by herself by the paparazzi. Britney even missed the drug and alcohol test in court during the custody trial. These factors were more than enough that led her to lose the custody battle against her then husband Kevin Federline.
