Britney Spears, Sam Asghari slam ex Kevin Federline over claims that their kids are avoiding her
Britney Spears fired back at ex-husband Kevin Federline Saturday night over an interview he did, claiming their two sons are choosing not to see her.
One word: Hurtful,” the pop star wrote in her Instagram story.
“It saddens me to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children,” she said in a statement. “As we all know, raising teenage boys is never easy for anyone. It concerns me the reason is based on my Instagram. It was LONG before Instagram.”
Earlier, Federline, Spears’ second husband, told the Daily Mail, “The boys have decided they are not seeing her right now. It’s been a few months since they’ve seen her.
Preston, 16 and Jayden, 15 even elected not to attend their mother’s wedding — her third — to Sam Asghari this spring as the 40-year-old pop star dominated headlines and frequently posted naked photos of herself online, Federline told The Daily Mail.
Spears and Federline were married from 2004 and 2006 and their relationship was chronicled in a reality show called “Britney and Kevin Chaotic.”
A year after their divorce, Spears had a series of public meltdowns as she fought for custody of the children. The former teen pop star was hospitalized multiple times, shaved her head, attacked paparazzi and was forced into rehab.
In the years after her court-ordered conservatorship began, her relationship with her sons was peaceful and stable, but had recently deteriorated due to unspecified things the teens witnessed during their visits with mom, Federline said.
“There were a lot of things going on that I didn’t feel comfortable with,” he cryptically told the outlet.
“I try to explain to them, ‘Look, maybe that’s just another way she tries to express herself.’ But that doesn’t take away from the fact of what it does to them. It’s tough. I can’t imagine how it feels to be a teenager having to go to high school.”
Despite taking out a restraining order on Spears’ father Jamie in 2019, Federline told the Mail he thought the allegedly “abusive” conservator meant well.
