Britney Spears hasn’t seen her sons in several months, according to her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The 40-year-old pop star is mother to sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, with ex-husband Federline, 44.
However, he has now claimed that their boys have now ‘decided’ not to see her and opted not to attend her wedding to actor Sam Asghari, 28, in June.
Federline said, “The boys have decided they don’t see her now.
“It’s been a few months since they’ve seen her. They made the decision not to attend her wedding.
His comments, published by MailOnline, come from a series of interviews to be broadcast on ITV News next week, in which Federline aims to reveal the untold side of his own story.
Federline – who is now married to volleyball player Victoria Prince, with whom he has two daughters – was given custody of his sons after the Toxic hitmaker filed for divorce in 2006.
He went on to explain that in recent months he has felt “uncomfortable” with many of Spears’ decisions, such as posting nude selfies on Instagram, but he has reassured his sons that they can “discuss anything with him.”
He said, “There were a lot of things going on that I wasn’t comfortable with. They tried to give her the benefit of the doubt, but at the same time I find that sometimes it hurts to be in that position.
“So I’ve made sure that all my kids can come to me at any time and discuss anything. The boys – all my children – know that they come to me and my wife and discuss everything. They are now teenagers. You know, we talk about sex, we talk about drugs, we talk about all the things that teenagers go through. I want my kids to make all the mistakes they can make in my house because [that way]”I can protect them.”
Spears has previously shared that her teenage sons don’t like to spend too much time with her, and earlier this year wrote that she “cryed the oceans” when she realized they no longer “need” her.
They are also rarely seen with her on her very active social media pages.
Spears was released last year from a 13-year-old conservatory, which she had been directed by her father Jamie Spears since 2008 after a public breakdown.
The court-ordered ruling saw Mr Spears co-manage his adult daughter’s welfare and financial affairs with a bank, but it was deemed widely controversial as the mother of two claimed it was an “abusive” relationship last year.
In November 2021, custody was terminated by a US judge, meaning Spears regained control of her multi-million dollar fortune and other aspects of her life, leading her to tie the knot with Asghari and try to have a baby. to get. .
However, former dancer Federline has said he believes the conservatory “saved” her life.
“I saw a man who really cared about his family, really cares about his family and wants everything to be okay. When Jamie took over, things settled down. He saved her life,’ he insisted.
Last year, he spoke out in support of Spears and called for the conservatory to be terminated, while his attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan told Entertainment Tonight at the time: “Kevin believes the best thing for his children is that their mother is happy and healthy. . Whatever is best for her, Kevin supports her to be able to do that…
‘It doesn’t matter how positive a conservatorship has been, if it has a detrimental effect and a detrimental effect on her state of mind. So he supports her with the best environment for her to live in and for his children to visit with their mother.
“Kevin thinks the best thing for his children is that their mother is happy and healthy.”
Earlier this year, Federline also spoke out to congratulate Spears on her baby news: The singer announced her pregnancy with Asghari just weeks before revealing she had miscarried with the unborn baby.
Spears and Federline were married for three years until 2007, during which time they welcomed their sons.
