The ex-husband of Britney Spears broke the silence: Kevin Federline gave the first interview in ten years and told what is really going on in the star’s house. The ex-husband of the pop diva admitted that their sons made the difficult decision not to see their mother. Britney’s kids haven’t seen her in months.
Britney Spears and dancer Kevin Federline got married in 2004. Their romance was stormy and fleeting. The couple went down the aisle when Britney became pregnant. Within two years, one after another, their sons Sean Preston (now 16 years old) and Jayden (he is 15) were born. In November 2006, two months after Jaden was born, Spears filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. The singer asked the court for sole custody of her sons.
Kevin hired lawyers and was able to sue joint custody. And then Britney’s life went downhill. She shaved her head and ended up in the hospital after a drug overdose. Doctors took the star from her home in an unconscious state. The artist, having taken drugs, locked herself in the bathroom, leaving tiny children unattended. In January 2008, Federline received sole custody of his sons. And a month later, Britney was forcibly placed under the care of her father, Jamie Spears. The guardianship lasted 13 years and ended only last year, when 40-year-old Britney was able to get it overturned in court.
44-year-old Kevin remains the sole guardian of his sons to this day, but he never forbade them to see their mother. The boys now live in his home in Los Angeles with Federline, his wife Victoria (a former basketball player, Kevin married her 9 years ago) and their daughters Jordan and Payton.

In a new TV interview due in the US in a few days, Federline decided to tell the truth about the children’s relationship with Britney. According to him, Sean and Jayden themselves decided not to meet with their mother yet. They haven’t seen Britney in months. This is despite the fact that the singer, who recently married 28-year-old fashion model Sam Asgari, bought a luxurious mansion in June near the Federline family home in Los Angeles.
“The boys decided that for the time being they would not see her,” Kevin was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. It’s been a few months since they last saw her. They are happy for her, but have decided not to go to her wedding.
Kevin delicately does not say why his sons decided not to meet their mother. But at the same time, it makes it clear that Sean and Jayden have seen a lot of things during their visits to their mother’s house in recent years that turned out to be traumatic for the psyche of teenagers.
“There were a lot of things that I didn’t like,” ex-husband Britney clarifies.

Another reason why the sons of the singer decided not to meet with her yet is her naked selfies. Having got rid of the guardianship of her father, Spears now and then publishes her pictures in social networks in a naked (and very frank) form. Kevin admits that it is not easy for sons to see such photos of their mother put on public display. Because of the behavior of Britney, Sean and Jayden fell under a hail of criticism and ridicule.
“I try to explain to them, ‘Look, maybe this is just another way she’s trying to express herself.’ But that doesn’t change the fact that it does to them. It’s tough, Federline says. – I can’t imagine what it’s like to be a teenager who has to go to high school.

Kevin also spoke out about the guardianship of Britney’s father. For 13 years, the media portrayed Jamie Spears as a monster who seized power over her daughter because of her millions. In the US, there was even a Free Britney movement. However, Federline is sure that the singer’s father has always acted for her good. And his custody of Britney saved her life.
– I saw this man who really cared about her, and really wanted everything to be fine, – says Kevin. – When Jamie got custody, everything worked out. He saved her life.

However, over the years, Federline found it increasingly difficult to explain to his sons the chaos that reigned in their family. He had to come up with reasonable arguments about why his sons live with him, and why their mother remains under the care of their grandfather.
“They had a lot of questions about it,” he admits. – I don’t know if I could answer all of them, but I was just trying to explain to them that mom needs help. And that the people around her were just trying to help her.

Federline does not hide the fact that his sons had to go through very difficult things. And they were all very bitter to see what was happening with Britney. Moreover, all the details of her life were immediately vigorously discussed in the press.
– All this was hard to watch, even harder to experience. It’s hard to watch what my boys go through. hard. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in my life, says Federline.
Despite the recognition of the merits of Jamie Spears, Kevin somehow seriously quarreled with him. In November 2019, Federline, through the courts, obtained a ban on the former father-in-law from seeing his sons. This happened after a serious quarrel between Jamie and one of the boys. However, today, when the restraining order expires, Kevin would like his sons to start seeing their grandfather again.
“I would love to see Jamie Spears back in the lives of boys,” says Kevin. – Especially if the boys themselves want it. I have no hard feelings for Jamie. People make mistakes.

Federline says he decided to give the interview for the first time in 10 years, not because of the retribution of the former, but in order to show the hitherto unknown side of this story.
Recall that the wedding of Britney Spears and Sam Asgari took place on June 11. The 40-year-old bride and her 28-year-old fiance said yes to each other in a white tent set up in the courtyard of the singer’s villa in California. The wedding was attended by only 100 guests – only the closest friends. Britney invited her brother Brian to the wedding, but did not invite her sister Jamie Lynn or her parents, with whom she is known to have a very strained relationship. The guest list included singers Madonna and Selena Gomez, socialite Paris Hilton and actress Drew Barrymore.
