Britney Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline deleted videos of what appeared to be the singer who once argued with their two sons.
The three Instagram videos, which Federline deleted early Thursday morning, were apparently secretly recorded four years ago by Jayden and Sean, who are now 15 and 16 respectively.
“I can’t sit back and let my sons accuse like this after what they’ve been through. As much as it hurts us, we as a family have decided to post these videos,” Federline, 44, captioned the videos.
“This isn’t even the worst,” claimed Federline, who was married to Spears from 2004 to 2007. “The lies have to stop. I hope our kids grow up to be better than this.”
The first video shows what appears to be one of her sons laying in bed and recording his mother as she walked into his bedroom.
“This is my house,” Spears, 40, is said to have said in the video. “If I want to come in here and give you lotion for your face because it’s gross… you better respect me, is it clear?”
“You all have to start treating me like a woman of value,” she added. “I’m a woman, okay, be nice to me, you understand?”
In the second video, the boys sat in the backseat of a car while Spears sat on the passenger side. The pop star and her sons started arguing after Spears stole Sean’s phone for walking into an ice cream parlor apparently without shoes.
‘Have you lost your damn mind? Have you lost your damn mind?’ she asked him.
“I’m shocked if f–k with you and I don’t know what to do,” Spears is said to have said. “And I’m afraid of you because you’re weird because you’re in puberty. And I don’t know what to say. But I care more than you know.”
The third video further showed the altercation of the three arguing.
“Do you want attention baby?” Spears asked as Jayden interrupted her and said, “Well, apparently I wanted to do that in the first place, but you keep interrupting every sentence I say.
“I think you just care about yourself because you don’t let us speak a word and you don’t let us go where we want to go.”
The “Toxic” singer then told her sons that she listens and wants to hear what they want to say, but the conversation then turned to the difficulty of skating versus roller skating.
Federline may have chosen to remove the videos after sparking outrage online.
“Kevin Federaline [sic] has posted illegally recorded videos showing his sons recording of Britney Spears discipling and arguing with her children to prove a point? I will say it proved a point. It proved that Britney can be a responsible parent who can control her children when needed,” one person tweeted.
“The fact that Britney Spears has to remind her own children that she is a WOMAN and that she deserves RESPECT tells us all we need to know about Kevin Federline’s parental influence. That man is pure evil and he raised those children in his image. Really tragic,” added another user.
Meanwhile, a source close to Spears told Vidak For Congress that the Instagram post was “disgusting”.
“This is terrible, Kevin is disgusting. He arms the kids by releasing the videos. But in these clips, Britney is just a mother.”
Federline’s video dump came less than a week after he gave an interview claiming their children chose not to see her “for a few months.” The “Oops I Did It Again” singer then responded to his “hurtful” claims, saying it “worries” her. She later added that her sons would act “hateful” towards her during her visit, which seemingly led to Federline posting the clips.
