Kevin sat down with the Daily Mail this past Saturday for an exclusive tell-all interview where he addressed Britney’s conservatorship as well as how their kids feel about their mother’s recent freedom of expression.
Britney Spears’s Husband Said Her Kids Should Be ‘Proud’ Of Her Naked Instagram Photos, Kevin Federline Alleges They Don’t Want To Visit Her
Kevin alleged that while Preston and Jayden are “happy” for their mom, they’re currently choosing not to see her, hinting that they’re embarrassed by some of Britney’s revealing photos.
Britney, who posts minimally censored naked pictures to her page regularly, previously shared that she does so in a bid to free herself after years of being tightly constricted under the conservatorship.
Kevin said, “I try to explain to [Preston and Jayden], ‘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,” he added, before revealing that the boys also actively decided not to go to her recent wedding. Britney wed her longtime partner, Sam Asghari, back in June in an intimate ceremony in their Thousand Oaks home.
“[Preston and Jayden] were happy for her, but they decided that, as they’re not seeing her right now, they made the decision not to go to her wedding,” Kevin said.
Kevin added, “This whole thing has been hard to watch, harder to live through, harder to watch my boys go through than anything else. It’s been tough. It’s the most challenging thing I’ve ever had to do in my life.”
The following day, Britney responded to Kevin’s bombshell interview with a written Instagram statement shared to her story. “It saddens me to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children,” she wrote. “As we all know, raising teenage boys is never easy for anyone.”
“It concerns me the fact that the reason is based on my Instagram,” she continued. “It was LONG before Instagram. I gave them everything. Only one word: HURTFUL.”
Britney’s husband, Sam, decided to jump in on the drama with a message of his own. “To clarify, my wife has never posted a nude selfie except of her butt, which is quite modest these days. All other posts were implied nudity, which can been seen in any ad for lotion or soap,” he wrote on his Instagram story.
“There is no validity to his statement regarding the kids distancing themselves, and it is irresponsible to make that statement publicly,” he went on. “The boys are very smart and will be 18 soon to make their own decisions and may eventually realize the ‘tough’ part was having a father who hasn’t worked much in over 15 years as a role model.”
“Kevin’s gravy train will end soon, which probably explains the timing of these hurtful statements,” he wrote. “I do not know him personally and have nothing against him, aside him choosing to vilify my wife. His character is revealed by approval of the cruel 13-year conservatorship, and his loyalty to Jamie Spears indicates his approval at time of its conception as well.”
Sam concluded, “Things that are now considered normal issues and behavior easily dealt with therapy or other ways were magnified to justify a 13-year prison sentence. Anyone approving of it is wrong or benefiting from it somehow. I will not comment on this matter again except to say I have a job.”
And while he vowed not to “comment on this matter again,” Sam has spoken out in defense of Britney once more — this time honing in on Kevin’s claims that the teenagers are embarrassed by her nude pictures.
In a since-deleted statement shared on his Instagram story, Sam encouraged Britney’s “body positive image” as he noted that “most kids” go through phases of being embarrassed by their parents.
“Even if there was truth to her kids being ashamed of their mother’s choices and positive body image they wouldn’t be the 1st teenagers embarrassed of their parents. Most kids are embarrassed by their parents at one point,” he wrote.
“The mere presence of a parent can humiliate a teenager,” he continued. “It’s so common it has been a storyline used over and over on TV and in Films for decades.”
Sam proceeded to call Britney’s revealing Instagram photos “an expression of newly found freedom,” urging that Preston and Jayden should be “proud” of their mom.
“Eventually if not already they will realize their mother’s choices are harmless and an expression of newly found freedom,” he wrote. “There is nothing to be embarrassed about just lots of things to be proud of.”
