2.  Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

In 2006, Britney went through a mental breakdown, and in 2007, lost physical custody of her two sons Sean Preston (b. 2005) and Jayden James (b. 2006). Later that year, she also lost legal custody of the boys. In 2008, Britney’s father, applied for and was granted conservatorship of Britney. This has allowed Britney a 50/50 split of time with her sons. Unfortunately, she does not have custodial rights, just liberal access. Any chance for her to regain full custody of the boys, now ages 9 and 8, would be an uphill battle, as the kids are well established in their daily lives with Kevin (and his new wife Victoria Prince), and the current arrangement seems to be working best for everyone.
