Britney Spears has decided not to bring her sons to Russia during her tour - after she was reportedly left shaken by a series of death threats.
Spears has been travelling through Europe with Sean Preston, three, and two year old Jayden James as she performs her live Circus show across the continent.
But after the 27 year old was inundated with a series of threatening e-mail messages, she refused to bring her sons with her as she played her first ever show in Russia, leaving them in the safe hands of family members in London.
Spears also decided against staying in the country herself, spending the night in Finland and jetting in to St Petersburg on Friday (17Jul09).
The Toxic singer will fly back to Moscow to perform at the capital on Tuesday (21Jul09), before taking her private jet back to London to be reunited with her boys.
A tour spokesperson reportedly told British newspaper The Sun, "Originally, both boys were to accompany Britney but she was against taking them because of these constant threats."
