Britney Spears, Sam Asghari Condemn 'Hurtful' Kevin Federline Remarks

Britney Spears and her husband, Sam Asghari, condemned remarks made by the star's ex-husband, Kevin Federline, in a bombshell interview over the weekend.

Federline, Spears's ex and the father of her two teenage sons, gave an interview to The Daily Mail in which he revealed that Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, are choosing not to see their mother, and criticized her sharing nude photos to Instagram.

"The boys have decided they are not seeing her right now. It's been a few months since they've seen her. They made the decision not to go to her wedding," Federline told the tabloid.

Federline also spoke about his ex sharing nude selfies online—the pop star, who recently emerged from a 13-year-long conservatorship, has been enjoying her newfound freedom and documenting her new experiences widely on social media.

"Look, maybe that's just another way she tries to express herself," Federline said of the nude selfies. "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."

Spears shot back at her ex in an Instagram post, labeling his comments "hurtful."

"It saddens me to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children," she said in a statement posted to her Instagram story on Saturday.

"As we all know, raising teenage boys is never easy for anyone. It concerns me the reason is based on my Instagram. It was LONG before Instagram," she continued, noting Federline's issue with her social media posts.

Spears said that she gave her sons "everything" and added: "Only one word: HURTFUL."

"I'll say it... My mother told me 'you should GIVE them to their dad' ... I'm sharing this because I can ... Have a good day folks!!!" Spears concluded.

The "Lucky" hitmaker directed another Instagram post to Federline in which she stated: "Reminder that the trauma and insults that come with fame and this business not only affect me but my children as well!!!!!.

"I'm only human and I've done my best...I honestly would like to share my TWO CENTS!!!! I daringly would like for the Federline's to watch the BIG BOOTY VIDEO !!! Other artists have made much worse when their children were extremely young!!!" she wrote.

Federline's interview also prompted Spears's new husband to release a statement defending the star.

"There is no validity to his statement regarding the kids distancing themselves and it is irresponsible to make that statement publicly," Asghari wrote. "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."

Asghari said that while he doesn't know Federline personally, he has "nothing against him aside from him choosing to vilify my wife."

"His character is revealed by approval of the cruel 13 year CShip and his loyalty to [Jamie Spears] indicates his approval at the time of its conception as well," Asghari said, in reference to Spears' conservatorship.

"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."

The model and fitness instructor also questioned Federline's timing with the interview, writing: "Kevin's gravy train will end soon which probably explains the timing of these hurtful statements..."

In a second Instagram Story, Asghari wrote: "I wish him the best and hope he has a more positive outlook in the future for benefit of all involved."

"But for now: Keep my wife's name.....out your mouth," he concluded, referencing Will Smith at the Oscars.

Federline's interview and Spears's and Asghari's subsequent responses come after the pop star's family feud was reignited on social media in recent weeks.
