Kevin Federline won’t be making his sons say “Aloha” to Britney Spears ahead of the family’s move from California to Hawaii next month.
The former dancer reportedly isn’t forcing Sean Preston, 17, or Jayden James, 16, to bid their estranged mom farewell, according to TMZ.
An insider told the outlet that Federline, 45, is apparently encouraging the boys to see Spears, 41, before the big move – but won’t make them see her if they don’t want to.
The source added that Spears’ sons have yet to make up their minds on whether they’ll visit the “Toxic” singer.
Page Six previously confirmed in May that Federline was uprooting his family to Hawaii so they could escape the media attention surrounding Spears post-conservatorship.
Federline revealed at the time that his second wife, Victoria Prince, got a job offer in the Aloha State.
We exclusively reported that Spears was OK with her sons making the move.
“To her credit, Britney Spears will not interfere with and consents to the relocation,” her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, wrote in a legal letter to Federline’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan.
However, Rosengart wasn’t so friendly to the DJ and blasted him for publicly going after Spears over the past year instead of handling their issues in private.
“I was particularly concerned because your client previously — and appallingly — violated their privacy, while egregiously violating Britney’s privacy, by releasing a private video of Britney with her children, which was preceded by a tabloid television interview,” Rosengart added, referring to footage of Spears arguing with their sons and Federline’s bombshell ITV appearance last year.
Rosengart also found Kaplan’s claim that Federline wanted to protect his kids from the spotlight quite laughable.
“It was also ironic [that you said] the children wanted to be ‘more sheltered from the media’s scrutiny.’ That is commendable. But [Federline’s] media interview did nothing to shelter them; instead, it publicized the issue in the media,” he argued.
Rosengart ended his letter by calling Spears a “loving and supportive mother.”
Last month, Spears’ fans spread rumors that Federline was only moving to Hawaii with his kids in an attempt to extend the number of years Spears has to pay him child support.
“He’s doing this because the courts can force her to pay child support up to the age of 23 in Hawaii,” one person tweeted.
“Kevin desperately wanting to move to Hawaii is definitely child support related,” another alleged.
Others spurred speculation that Federline was leaving California after being sued for owing his other minor children’s private school more than $15,000 in tuition.

The former backup dancer swiftly denied the claims, telling TMZ last week, “A lot of people say a lot of stupid things.”
In most states, child support stops once a minor turns 18. However, payments can sometimes be extended to the age of 19 if the child is unmarried and still a full-time high school student.
The “Crossroads” actress previously paid Federline $20,000 a month in child support, but he demanded an increase to $60,000 a month in May 2018.
He and Spears, who has an estimated net worth of $60 million, reached an agreement that August, though the terms are confidential.
The Grammy-winning artist, who was freed from her 13-year conservatorship in November 2021, has been estranged from her boys for more than a year. Her relationship with her sons seemed especially rocky when they did not attend her wedding to longtime partner Sam Asghari last year.
However, Spears seems to be trying to make things right with her sons and has recently shared sweet posts about her children on Instagram ahead of their move. Just last week, she shared a throwback photo of Jayden, calling him “mine” in the caption.
Spears and Federline were married from October 2004 to July 2007. He married Prince, 40, in August 2013, while the “If You Seek Amy” artist and Asghari, 29, wed in June 2022.
Federline also shares daughter Kori, 20, and son Kaleb, 18, with ex-fiancée Shar Jackson, as well as daughters Jordan, 11, and Peyton, 9, with Prince.
