After hearing of the news of her treatment, Federline's powerhouse attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, told ET in April that "Kevin commends Britney for recognizing that she needs to take a step back and that she is taking the reasonable steps to dealing with her situation in a responsible way. He wishes everyone well."
Federline and Spears were married from 2004 until they finalized their divorce in 2007. While she was seeking help, her two boys were being well taken care of by their father.
"The boys are in school and with their father. Britney always puts the kids first and chose this time to get help while they are with their dad. [The boys] have not been disrupted because this is their time they are normally with their father," a source told ET. "Britney knows the boys are safe and happy and well taken care of with him. This is truly a loving family that works together so that Britney can give herself this time to heal."
