Britney Spears brought up her ex-husband Kevin Federline in a now-deleted Instagram post, alleging he refused to see her while she was pregnant.
The news comes just weeks after Britney revealed that she’s pregnant with her and fiancé Sam Ashgari‘s first child together.
In an Instagram post, Britney wrote: “I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby.”
“I obviously won’t be going out as much due to the paps getting their money shot of me like they unfortunately already have,” she added, before revealing that she suffered perinatal depression when she was previously pregnant.
“It’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression … I have to say it is absolutely horrible,” she wrote.
“Women didn’t talk about it back then … some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her … but now women talk about it everyday … thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret.”
Britney went on to recall a moment from her past with Kevin in a now-deleted post shared this week in which she slammed him for refusing to see her while she was expecting.
“My ex-husband wouldn’t see me when I flew to New York with a baby inside me and Las Vegas when he was shooting a video !!!” she wrote.
She went on to recall the moment she was warned by an unspecified person to divorce Kevin, adding that he’d been distant for “a while.”
“I got a text saying, ‘If you don’t divorce Kevin he will publicly do it to you’ … Since I hadn’t seen him in a while I already knew it was over … I had my baby,” she wrote.
“She’s says she’s made peace with it but I somehow think she has a lot more bottled up,” one user commented. “Like she said Kevin ignored her when she had the child inside her. Did he even care about their well-being? Having her babies ripped away from her had to cut deep. That’s got to hurt.”
While another added: “I don’t think she dragged Kevin. She just told the truth. He abandoned her when she was pregnant. And when she had prenatial depression, he tried to paint her out to be a crazy drug addict, and Lynne and Jamie encouraged him to seek custody Preston and Jayden.”
Britany shares two sons with Kevin, Sean Preston,16, and Jayden, 15.
