According the latest tabloid reports, Kevin Federline, the soon-to-be ex-husband of pop star Britney Spears, is serious about his desire to obtain custody of his two sons, 15-month-old Sean Preston and 3-month-old Jayden James. So serious that the former backup dancer is said to have turned down a large financial settlement that Britney reportedly offered him in exchange for dropping the custody request.

"He wants to be with them," a friend told In Touch. "He doesn’t think she’s a good mom."

Kevin is planning to prove that Britney is a bad mother, including using her recent partying behavior and bad habits, like smoking and drinking, against her. A friend of the rapper reportedly told OK that on Nov. 28 Kevin requested that courts to test Jayden to see if alcohol was present in his system. "He claims Britney breastfed for the first weeks after his birth and was drinking during that time."

Kevin is also supposedly bringing his parents into the equation for help getting custody. Kevin’s mom Julie "plans to consult her attorney regarding grandparent rights and possible custody of the kids." an insider says.
