Federline's Lawyer: Full-Recovery Reports Premature
Britney Spears on March 26
Kevin Federline's lawyer says that with the help of father Jamie Spears, Britney Spears is heading in the right direction. But he urged restraint in saying the pop star is already fully recovered.

"Jamie is doing a really good job," Mark Vincent Kaplan tells PEOPLE. "There was a situation and that seems to be stabilized. Does that mean she’s cured? Of course not."

Kaplan has noticed that the Spears's negative press has diminished noticeably, and that her successes – from her appearance on How I Met Your Mother to reports Tuesday that she is working again with former manager Larry Rudolph – are making news right now.

He calls Jamie Spears's steps to improve Britney's well-being and diffuse her once tumultuous lifestyle "smart," adding that, "Obviously before Jamie, it wasn't a question of what was going to happen – it was a question of when."

A healthy, happy Spears is something that Federline has always yearned for, says Kaplan. As for his own professional interest in the Spears case, which is no longer dominating Los Angeles's family court system? Says Kaplan: "I look forward to the time when I can be bored."
