Britney Spears criticized ex-husband Kevin Federline for publicly discussing her relationship with sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, in a new interview.
“Just one word: hurtful,” the 40-year-old singer “Toxic” wrote late Saturday via her Instagram Stories.
“I am saddened to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children. As we all know, raising teenage boys is not easy for anyone. It worries me that the reason is based on my Instagram,” Spears continued, referring to Federline’s claim that their kids find her social media content “difficult” to deal with.
“It took a LONG time for Instagram… I gave them everything,” she added. “I’ll tell you… My mother said to me, ‘You must GIVE them to their father.’ I’m sharing this because I can. Have a nice day folks!!!”
Spears then followed up on her original post with a post shared on her feed, which read, “In addition to what I’ve said in my story… As their stepmother says, ‘what goes on outside this house has nothing to do with it.” making with his house’ … I would like to share that the DOOR to the outside is a sign of the WHITE GATES that I have been kept away from for 15 years … the conservatorship is only 8 months over!!!!”
She continued: “Being able to have cash FROM THE OUTSIDE world for the first time is EXTREMELY ENLIGHTENING…. are we right now??? As in even equality ???””
Spears also reminded her followers that “the traumas and insults that come with fame and this business affect not only me but my children,” noting that she is “just human” and has done her best thus far. done after the conservatory.
“I would honestly like to share my TWO CENTS!!!! I would really like the Federline’s to watch the BIG BOOTY VIDEO!!! Other artists have made it much worse when their kids were extremely young!!!!”
The ‘Circus’ singer went on to say that she was “supervised and monitored for nearly 15 years” under her conservatory, which ended in November 2021.
“I needed permission to take Tylenol!!! I should start doing more WAAY than going topless on the beach like a baby!!!! It doesn’t surprise me that just as my family has done their share of interviews, so will they. I am not at all surprised by their behavior and their approach to what I have dealt with!!!” she concluded.
Paris Hilton jumped into the comments section to show support for her longtime boyfriend.
“I love you Angel. I’m sorry you have to go through this😔 I send you so much love and support,” she wrote.
Spears’ new husband, Sam Asghari, also supported the singer when he started his own Instagram story on Saturday.
“There is no validity to his statement about the children distancing themselves and it is irresponsible to make that statement publicly,” the 28-year-old model began.
“The boys are very smart and will soon be 18 to make their own decisions and will eventually realize that the ‘difficult’ part was having a father who hasn’t worked much as a role model in over 15 years.”
He continued: “Kevin’s justice will end soon, which probably explains the timing of these hurtful statements. I don’t know him personally and have nothing against him except that he chooses to slander my wife.”
Asghari further noted that Federline’s support of Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, “revealed” his character.
“Things that are now considered normal problems and behaviors that can be easily treated with therapy or other means were magnified to warrant a 13-year prison sentence. Anyone who approves of it is wrong to take advantage of it in some way. I won’t comment on this except to say I have a job,” he concluded.
Hours later, the actor shared another post that referenced the famous line Will Smith used after beating Chris Rock at the Oscars earlier this year.
“I wish him the best and hope he has a more positive outlook in the future for the sake of everyone involved,” Asghari wrote on his Instagram story.
“But for now, keep my wife’s name… out of your mouth.”
The statements come after Federline told The Daily Mail that Preston and Jayden reportedly chose not to attend their mother’s wedding to Asghari earlier this year, as she dominated the headlines and regularly posted nude photos.
“The boys have decided that they are not seeing her now. It’s been a few months since they’ve seen her. They made the decision not to go to her wedding,” claimed the former backup dancer, who was married to Spears from 2004 to 2006.
“This whole thing has been hard to watch, harder to live through, harder to see my boys go through than anything else. It’s been tough. It’s the most challenging thing I’ve ever had to do in my life. “
