Britney Spears has responded after ex-husband Kevin Federline claimed her sons chose not to see her and struggled with her nude Instagram posts
A teaser of an upcoming interview with Federline for ITV was shared on social media on Saturday (6 August).
In it, the singer – who was married to Spears from 2004 to 2007 – said her two teenage sons were keeping their distance from their mother and had chosen not to attend her wedding to Sam Asghari in June.
He also claimed that the teens found it “hard” to see their mother sharing nude photos online, adding, “I can’t imagine what it feels like to be a teenager going to high school have to go.”
On Saturday night (August 6), Spears shared a statement with Instagram Stories responding to Federline’s “hurtful” comments.
“It saddens me to hear that my ex-husband has decided to speak up about the relationship between me and my children…As we all know, raising teenagers is never easy for anyone,” she wrote.
“It worries me the reason is based on my Instagram… It was LONG before Instagram… I gave them my all… Just one word: HURTFUL.”
In a second post on her main feed, Spears reminded fans that she had only been out of her conservatory for eight months.
“During my conservatoire I was controlled and monitored for almost 15 years,” she wrote. “I should start doing more WAAAY than lying topless on the beach like a baby.
“Reminder that the trauma and insults that come with fame and this business doesn’t just affect me it affects my kids too!!!! … I’m only human and I’ve done my best.”
Asghari also shared his own reply post, claiming that Federline’s comments about Spears’ sons had “no validity.”
“I don’t know him personally and I have nothing against him [from] he chose to disparage my wife,” he wrote.
