Britney Spears insists she 'tried' with sons before they stopped visits
Britney Spears has addressed the strained relationship she has with her sons and claims they behaved ‘hatefully’ towards her before stopping contact.
The drama between the Toxic singer and ex-husband Kevin Federline has escalated this week over their two teenage sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15.
Kevin, 44, who was married to Britney, 40, for three years, spoke out about his ex-wife for the first time in an interview, revealing how their sons made their own decision to stop seeing her a few months ago due to being ‘embarrassed’ by her nude social media photos.
Britney and her new husband Sam Asghari both fired back at Kevin in Instagram posts, with the pop star saying she was ‘saddened’ that her ex would air their issues publicly, while her fitness trainer husband said there was ‘no validity’ to Kevin’s comments.
The Slave 4 U singer has since shared a now-deleted Instagram post explaining why she thinks Sean and Jayden have stopped visiting her. This appears to have promoted Kevin, a former dancer, to share private videos of Britney allegedly having an argument with the boys taken some time ago.
In her latest Instagram post, Britney wrote: ‘I have love in my home and I have blessings from the people I allow in and out of my home.
‘I looked forward to seeing my kids every week… It was 2 days a week but I asked him to ask to stay for more days…. maybe 3… but then the next week they stayed for only one day.
‘It hurts and I want to scream!!! I can’t process how I dedicated 20 years of my life to those kids… everything was about them!!! For them to knock the breath out of me.’
The pop star continued: ‘The teenage age is weird, I don’t know what’s going on in their heads!!! … I always TRIED and TRIED, and maybe that’s why they stopped coming here!!!
‘I wanted them to love me so much that I might have overdone it!!! This summer, they told me “we may come here less” and I was like that’s fine. I called they dad and I told him that it seems the boys are wanting to stop coming here as much, which I get because they have their own thing going on but I feel like they are being pretty harsh!!!
‘His words were “I would never let them make that decision on their own… I would never do that to you”!!! Well after that, I haven’t seen them since!!!’
In one part of the lengthy message, Britney reportedly wrote: ‘There’s being rude then there’s being HATEFUL.
‘They would visit me, walk in the door, go straight to their room and lock the door !!!
‘The MONITOR would tell me that he just likes to be in his room. I’m like why come visit me if they don’t even visit me !!!’
An Instagram account said to belong to Kevin has now shared two videos allegedly of Britney arguing with their sons, claiming that the boys gave him permission for the footage to be made public.
Kevin captioned the posts: ‘I cannot sit back and let my sons be accused in this way after what they’ve been through. As much as it hurts us, we decided as a family to post these videos.
‘This isn’t even the worst of it. The lies have to stop. I hope our kids grow up to be better than this.’
In one of the clips, which appear to be filmed by the teenagers, Britney said: ‘This is my house. If I want to come in here and give you lotion for your face because it’s coarse … y’all better start respecting me, are we clear?’
She added: ‘You all need to start treating me like a woman with worth. I am a woman, okay, be nice to me, do you understand?’
Another clip features a row taking place inside a car, in which Britney allegedly said: ‘Have you lost your f****** mind? Have you lost your f****** mind?
‘I do care. But I’m shocked as f*** with you but I don’t know what to do.
‘And I’m scared of you because you’re weird because you’re going through puberty. And I don’t know what to say. But I do care more than you know.’
Britney and Kevin were married between 2004 and 2007, but split amid her mental health issues. The following year, she was placed under a strict conservatorship that would control her financial affairs and wellbeing for 13 years before being terminated in November 2021.
