Britney Spears took to social media on Saturday night to comment on ex-husband Kevin Federline’s recent exclusivity with the Daily mail. In a series of interviews with Daphne Barak to be broadcast on ITV News later this week, Federline spoke out about the pop star and her relationship with their two sons.
Federline claimed that their children, 16-year-old Sean Preston and 15-year-old Jayden, “have decided they are not seeing her now.” Federline also said the boys “made the decision” to skip Spears’ wedding to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari earlier this year.
Federline and Spears married in 2004 before filing for divorce in 2007.
The two were then engaged in a much-discussed custody battle for their children Federline got full custody of both sons in 2008, according to The Guardian. Shortly thereafter, Spears’ controversial conservatorship began, which lasted 13 years.
Spears was released from the legal settlement last November after a judge decided to suspend her father Jamie Spears as trustee of her finances.
After the word of Federline’s interview spread, both Spears and Asghari responded to his claims on Instagram.
On Saturday, Spears wrote on her Instagram Story: “I am saddened to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children… As we all know, raising teenage boys is not easy for anyone. .”
Spears rejected Federline’s claims that her sons are distancing themselves over nude photos Spears shared on social media.”
She added: “I gave them everything… Just one word: HURTFUL.”
Spears ended the post by claiming that her mother Lynne Spears encouraged her to hand over her children to Federline.
Spears further expanded Federline’s interview on her Instagram feed.

“During my conservatory I was monitored and monitored for almost 15 years…I needed permission to take Tylenol!!!” Spear wrote.
Asghari claimed via Instagram Story that Federline’s purpose is to “slander” Spears and criticized Federline for being on standby while under receivership.
“His character is revealed through the approval of a 13-year-old CShip and his loyalty to Jaimie also indicates his approval at the time of conception… Anyone who approves is wrong or benefits from it in some way” Asghari wrote.
Asghari continued with another post, citing Will Smith’s infamous follow-up to the Oscars hit. “I wish him the best and hope he has a more positive outlook in the future for the sake of everyone involved. But for now, keep my wife’s name… out of your mouth.”
In the exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, Federline said Spears’s conservatorship “saved” her and claimed that he had apologized to his sons for the nude photos Spears had shared on social media after her conservatorship ended.
“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’s tough. I can’t imagine what it feels like to be a teenager going to high school,” Federline said.
Representatives from Spears, Asghari and Federline did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
