Kevin Federline, the ex-husband of pop star Britney Spears, has claimed on Saturday that their children are having a hard time with their mother’s new freedom on Instagram, as both Spears and husband Sam Asghari snap back against the comments.

Federline, 44, claimed during an interview that Spears’ two sons, fifteen and sixteen years of age, with him, are having a hard time with the provocative social media posts that their mother has been posting on Instagram after winning her conservatorship battle against her father, according to the Daily Beast.

“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,” he said. “I try to explain to them, ‘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.”

Federline, who has 70% custody of his and Britney’s children after a court decision in 2018, has made statements in the past that have been supportive of Britney’s father and co-conservator Jamie Spears, and has remarked that he believes the conservatorship had saved Britney’s life when it came to effect in 2007, according to E! News Online.

Sam Asghari, Spears’ husband, has snapped back online at Federline for making a public statement about what he believes should have been a private matter between family members, while Britney herself commented on how hurtful it was to bring the matter to public light.

“It saddens me to hear that my ex husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children,” she said, before describing the situation as “Only one word: HURTFUL.”

“My wife has never posted a nude selfie except of her butt [which] is quite modest these days,” Asghari said. “All other posts were implied nudity [which] can be seen in any ad for lotion or soap.”

Asghari also implied that Federline was only making the statement due to the impending loss of child support payments from Britney once their sons turn eighteen.

“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,” he continued. “Kevin's gravy train will end soon [which] probably explains the timing of these hurtful statements.”
