Britney Spears’ sons have shunned the ‘Toxic’ singer for months, according to their father, Kevin Federline.
Preston (16) and Jayden (15) even chose not to attend their mother’s wedding – her third – to Sam Asghari this spring, as the 40-year-old pop star dominated headlines and often posted nude photos of herself online. , Federline told The Daily Mail.
“The guys have decided they don’t see her now,” K-Fed said. “It’s been a few months since they’ve seen her. They have made the decision not to attend her wedding.”
Federline, 44, told the outlet that he and his sons were upset over an accusation Spears made on Instagram in April, accusing him of denying her when she was pregnant with one of their sons. Federline threatened to sue his ex-wife over the now-deleted statement.
“This whole thing was hard to watch, harder to live through, harder to see my boys go through than anything,” the backing dancer reportedly said of her conservatory’s recent late-November media frenzy. “It’s been tough. It’s the most challenging thing I’ve ever had to do in my life.”
Spears and Federline were married from 2004 and 2006 and their relationship was chronicled on a reality show called ‘Britney and Kevin Chaotic’.
A year after their divorce, Spears had a series of public meltdowns while fighting for custody of the children. The former teenage pop star was hospitalized multiple times, had her head shaved, attacked paparazzi and had to rehab.
In the years after her court-ordered conservatory began, her relationship with her sons was peaceful and stable, but had recently deteriorated due to unspecified things the teens saw during their visits to mom, Federline said.
“There were a lot of things going on that I wasn’t comfortable with,” he told the outlet cryptically.
Spears’ tendency to show off her naked body online didn’t help, according to the article.
“I try to explain to them, ‘Look, maybe that’s just another way she’s trying to express herself.’ But that doesn’t take away from what it does to them. It is heavy. I can’t imagine what it feels like to be a teenager going to high school.”
Despite imposing a restraining order against Spears’ father Jamie in 2019, Federline told the Mail that he thought the supposedly “offensive” curator meant well.
“I saw a man who really cared about his family and really cares about his family and wants everything to be okay,” he said. “When Jamie took over, things settled down. He saved her life.”
“They’ve had a lot of questions about it,” he reportedly said of the children. “I don’t know if I can answer them all for them, but I was just trying to explain to them that your mother needed help, you know, and the people were in the game trying to make that happen, to make it better.” to make. ”
Federline said he hoped Preston and Jayden would have a good relationship with their grandfather.
“I would absolutely welcome Jamie Spears into the boys’ lives,” he said, according to the report. “Especially if that’s what the boys wanted. I have no grudge against Jamie Spears. People make mistakes. I feel sorry for him. I feel like he’s been put through the wringer.”
In June, Spears bought a Los Angeles mansion not far from where K-Fed lives with the teens, his wife Victoria, their two children and his two other children from another previous relationship.
The “Baby One More Time” singer recently announced that she is pregnant after a miscarriage earlier this year.
But being close hasn’t healed the gap, Federline said.
“If there was a way – anyway – maybe I could say something to just open up [Britney’s] eyes – but I haven’t found them yet. I feel like if I found that out, I’d be on the phone telling her.”
