Britney Spears' youngest son, Jayden James, is expected to be released from the hospital on Tuesday, according to a statement posted on the singer's Web site Monday afternoon (November 10). Jayden was hospitalized Sunday for an unspecified reaction.
"Jayden James Federline was admitted to the Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center on Sunday, November 9th," the statement reads. "Doctors concluded he had a reaction to something he ingested. He is expected to be discharged tomorrow."
Spears had taken her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, back home to Kentwood, Louisiana, for a visit — the first since her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline — when 2-year-old Jayden fell ill.
The family took him to Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in McComb, approximately 20 miles away from Kentwood, for emergency care Sunday. Being a small town, Kentwood has few options for medical care, including an outpatient clinic, a nursing home and a hospital, Hood Memorial, within 15 miles of city limits. After Hood Memorial, Southwest Mississippi Regional is the closest facility.
Britney's brother, Bryan, was videotaped outside the Southwest Mississippi Regional emergency entrance, bringing in fast food on a few occasions and taking care of 3-year-old Sean on another. Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center told MTV News that it is hospital policy not to confirm admissions or disclose patient information.
Asked if Britney's ex would be traveling to see his son in the hospital, Federline's rep told MTV News she had no comment.
