Britney Spears was denied permission to see her two sons yesterday (Feb 19, 2008).

The troubled singer's custody plea was rejected by family court commissioner Scott Gordon, despite ex-husband Kevin Federline supporting Britney's request to visit two-year-old Sean Preston and Jayden James, 17 months.

After the day-long closed court hearing, Kevin's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan said: "Both sides want to see the day that visitation can resume."

"It is a question of working out details on how that can happen. Mr. Federline looks forward to his children having their mom back in their life."

Kaplan also revealed Kevin is coping well as a single father, adding: "Mr. Federline is doing everything that he can to make up for the fact that the boys are with him."

"He is keeping family around the boys and trying to let them know there is any change whatsoever."

Britney's lawyer Anne Kiley was also unsuccessful in her request for a gag order to be placed on the case to prevent details being made public.

Commissioner Gordon explained: "We're dealing with very critical issues. The hearings are public. The public has a right to know what the courts are doing."

The hearing was the first in the custody battle since 26-year-old Britney was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation earlier this month.

Her father Jamie has co-conservatorship of Britney which gives him control over her day-to-day affairs.

Neither Britney - who sparked rumors she is pregnant again after being spotted with a bulging stomach at the weekend - or Kevin were present at yesterday's hearing.
