Singer lights up in front of her kids

Britney Spears has been criticised for her leaving her lighter and cigarette packet in easy reach of her children.

The singer, 26, was enjoying some time with her sons Jadyen James, 21-months, and Sean Preston, 2, at her Beverly Hills home when she lit up.

But her eldest son picked up her lighter and start playing with the cigarette packet when she wasn’t looking.

The snaps – which show Britney in a skimpy pink bikini – come just 2 weeks after she gave sole custody to ex husband Kevin Federline, 30.
