It will be a family affair when britney Spears hits the road next month.
After rumor got out that the rejuvenated hitmaker would cancel her upcoming Circus tour if Kevin Federline's lawyers didn't agree to let her take their sons with her, a rep for Spears has confirmed that the babies will be onboard.
"britney is so excited to kick off her tour. She has been enjoying every moment of rehearsals and is looking forward to performing in front of a live audience again. Both sean preston and Jayden James will, in fact, be joining britney throughout the duration of her tour," read a post to Spears' website.
Federline has primary custody of the Kids, but Spears' visitation rights has her caring for them about half the time these days.
The Circus Starring britney Spears 2009 Tour, Spears' first arena tour in five years, kicks off March 3 in New Orleans. The Pussycat Dolls will also be along for the ride.
And since she'll be touring until June, it's lucky that she won't be needed in court until at least August.
That's when the singer may be called upon to give a deposition in her former manager's lawsuit against her over (what else?) money matters.
Clay Townsend, the attorney representing Florida-based manager Johnny Wright, told E! News following a closed hearing Monday that they are in no hurry to question Spears since their trial isn't on the docket until 2010.
"Johnny Wright still has a lot of affection for britney," Townsend said. "He was around britney for a long time, since the Mickey Mouse days and he just wishes the best for her."
Their financial issues were probably due to accounting errors, the lawyer added, and Wright is glad Spears is doing better and ready to head out on tour.
Wright's camp maintains that only Spears can answer certain questions pertaining to her specific aspects of her career and says the deposition can be given with a psychologist present, if the court deems it necessary.
