And what he had to say left her saddened…
The singer has since responded to his comments in an Instagram post.

Now, Britney Spears shot to fame back in 1998.
With songs such as Oops, I did it again and Slave 4 U, Britney quickly became one the most popular pop stars at the time as she gained fans around the world.
She constantly topped the charts…
And was even hailed as the “Princess of Pop.”
But, over the years, Britney’s mental health dramatically deteriorated as the pressures of the spotlight took a toll.
And eventually, in 2007, Britney suffered a highly public breakdown.
One of the results of Britney’s breakdown was that she was put under conservatorship.
Britney’s dad, Jamie Spears, was made the permanent conservator of his daughter’s affairs and co-conservator of her estate in 2008 meaning he could control every aspect of her life.
But, in recent years, following Britney’s cryptic posts on social media, the #FreeBritney movement to free her for the conservatorship was plunged into the spotlight.
And eventually, as people protested for Britney to be able to control her life, so did the star.
Britney began a fight to regain control of her own life back in 2020.
It took a long time, with a lot of knockbacks as things initially did not go her way…
But, after thirteen years, on November 13, 2021, Britney was freed from her conservatorship as it was terminated with immediate effect.
It was a day that people, including the singer, rejoiced.
Since then, Britney has been rebuilding her life and experiencing many things again.
And last month, Britney shared the exciting news that she and her partner, Sam Asghari, were expecting a child together.
In an Instagram post, Britney wrote: “I lost so much weight to go on my Maui trip only to gain it back … I thought ‘Geez … what happened to my stomach ???'”
“My husband said ‘No you’re food pregnant silly !!!’ So I got a pregnancy test … and uhhhhh well … I am having a baby … 4 days later I got a little more food pregnant. It’s growing !!!”
But sadly, just weeks after her announcement, Britney shared some heartbreaking news.
In a post on Instagram, Britney wrote that she had “lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy.”
“This is a devastating time for any parent,” she wrote. “Perhaps we should have waited to announce until we were further along. However, we were overly excited to share the good news.”
“Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment.”
Since sharing the news, people around the world have sent messages of support to the star.
And not only that, but many people have praised the star for breaking the stigma of the twelve-week rule…
“Don’t even feel bad for announcing your pregnancy “early” that baby was alive and a spirit and a human and deserved to be announced,” one person commented on her Instagram post.
While another person wrote: “I’m thankful you announced. There is stigma with announcing too early, and then with miscarriage, you have to be quiet. By doing this, you allow space for others to heal just as you. The more we speak about it, the more we all know we experience it together. I’m sorry for your loss.”
Another person added: “Thank you for sharing this experience and normalizing it. So many of us have experienced this loss and it’s important to be able to talk about it. I’m sorry for your loss.”
As a fellow Instagram user, wrote: “Can we normalize sharing pregnancy news in the first trimester? Who cares if hearing about loss makes some people uncomfortable. As women, we shouldn’t be pressured to conceal our “condition.” I wish I knew how common miscarriage was when I had my first. It would have been nice to know about other women’s experiences beforehand. There’s no shame in it. If women feel better to share, then it should be encouraged. Not talking about conception or pregnancy struggles isn’t healthy for young women or anyone for that matter.”
People have praised Britney for breaking the stigma of the twelve-week rule after she wrote that she maybe shouldn’t have shared the news so early.
The twelve-week rule is an unwritten idea that couples shouldn’t share the news of their pregnancy until it has surpassed twelve weeks.
And fans are, once again, celebrating the star.
As she has finally married her long-term boyfriend, Sam Asghari, at an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles on June 9.
The pair have been dating since 2016 when they met on the set of her music video for Slumber Party, in which he appeared as her love interest.
Fans were overcome with excitement about the news of their wedding. Britney certainly deserves this day of love and happiness.
However, their big day didn’t come without tribulation, as Britney’s ex-husband made it his mission to disrupt the event.
Britney’s first husband, Jason Alexander, who she married back in 2004, before getting their marriage annulled just days later, showed up uninvited.
According to TMZ, Jason streamed the whole thing live on Instagram.
He allegedly told security that Britney had invited him and somehow managed to get inside her home.
Moments later, Ventura County Sheriff’s Department responded to a trespassing call at the home after a “physical struggle” occurred between Jason and security.
“She’s my first wife, my only wife,” Jason told security. “I’m her first husband, I’m here to crash the wedding.”
As per TMZ, Britney’s attorney Mathew Rosengart said he was “absolutely livid” about Jason’s actions.
Adding: “I am personally working with the sheriff’s department to ensure Mr. Alexander is aggressively prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
Thankfully, Britney is safe, and Jason has since been charged with trespassing, vandalism, and 2 counts of battery for attacking security.
Jason is reportedly still in custody.
And Britney isn’t letting the disruption cause any more drama. Britney discussed the theme of their wedding with Vogue, sharing that Jeffrey Best helped plan their big day.
“We really wanted to make this a small and beautiful moment with family and friends,” Britney said. “We wanted warm and feminine colors including blush, white, cream, and gold, and a lot of various shades of pinks, blush, and reds.”
Britney wore a custom Versace dress with a white veil, while Sam wore a black tux by Versace during the ceremony.
Charlotte Tilbury and her niece, Sofia, created her natural makeup look, “I was so thrilled and honored to be asked to design Britney’s bridal beauty look!” Charlotte admitted. “Britney is an icon of our time who has inspired and empowered us all with her joy and positive energy. She’s such a natural beauty and has the most mesmerizing big, brown eyes.”
The 10-minute ceremony took place under a blush tent at her home, with stars such as Madonna, Selena Gomez, Paris Hilton, Ansel Elgort, will.i.am, and Donatella Versace attending.
Throughout the night Britney changed into 3 different outfits all designed by Versace.
After the party ended, Britney and Sam left at 10:15 p.m, where they were driven away in a Rolls Royce.

Sam Asghari’s ex has had a little something to say…
Telling TMZ in an exclusive interview that Britney has the perfect husband.
In an interview with the news outlet, Mayra Veronica, an American singer, said that her ex would be the perfect husband.
“I think Sam would be a fantastic husband,” she began.
“He’s not the cheating type or the flirting type. He’s very devoted, very supportive, so I think I only see good things for them to be honest with you,” she continued telling TMZ.
“He’s the type that he’s going to concentrate on his work, she looks like she’s more into just building a family now which is fantastic. So, I think it is a great thing for both of them,” she said.
The singer then talked of the time she dated Britney’s now-husband.
“When I dated Sam, I was pretty much in the same situation Britney was in. I was being controlled by my management and what have you and he just kind of came into the picture while I was trying to separate from all that and I think he really helped,” she said.
“He’s very understanding, he’s very supportive, so I think that’s what she needed at the time, that’s what she still needs.
“I think they’re a perfect match, to be honest,” the singer continued.
Marya then said that no matter which way Britney’s relationship with Sam goes, he will always be there for her.
That wasn’t all she had to say, though…
The singer also thinks that Sam will be a “great father.” High praise all around from his ex, right?
“He was always, before this type of entertainment career, he was more into, I believe he was into wanting to become a cop or wanting to be a police officer. So, I think there’s that protection of sorts as a male figure and as a father. So, I think he’s going to be a fantastic father. He’s got a kind heart, loves animals, so I think he’s going to be fantastic,” she finished.
Sam and Mayra were together in 2015, but eventually, split up, going down separate paths.
The singer is also a television personality and actress, appearing mostly on Spanish television.
And if one thing’s for certain, she’s definitely right about the couple being perfect for one another.
It was also revealed that the couple signed a prenuptial agreement to protect Britney Spears’ fortune if they do part ways…
Which, we are almost certain they won’t.
But, it’s better to be on the safe and sensible side, right?
It’s not only Britney’s wealth that’s protected, though. Sam’s is, too.
According to TMZ, sources close to the couple revealed the news.
The news outlet revealed that Sam also joked about wanting the prenup to protect his Jeep and shoe collection, but the sources close to the couple have said that it was initially down to Britney’s legal team.
While the singer is worth a reported $60 million, Sam is worth $1 million, according to Style Caster. Now that the legal work is out the way, the couple can enjoy their honeymoon.
And now, Britney’s ex, Kevin Federline, has made some pretty shocking statements about Britney’s relationship with her children in a recent interview…
But Britney and Sam have hit back at Kevin’s statements…
Sam took to social media and said: “There is no validity to his statement regarding the kids distancing themselves and it is irresponsible to make that statement publicly.”
“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,” he added.
But the situation caught even more attention when Sam went on to rant about Kevin not supporting his own children…
“Kevin’s gravy train will end soon [which] probably explains the timing of these hurtful statements. I do not know him personally and have nothing against him aside him [deciding] to vilify my wife. His character is revealed by approval of the cruel 13 year [conservatorship] and his loyalty to Jaimie indicates his approval at time of its conception as well.”
“Things that are now considered normal issues and behavior easily dealt with in therapy or other ways were magnified to justify a 13 year sentence. I will not comment on this matter except to say I have a job,” he said.
And backed his wife to the point of slamming Kevin for saying such things in the interview…
“But for now: Keep my wife’s name… out your mouth,” he concluded.
But he wasn’t the only one who reacted to the shocking interview, as Britney expressed that it “saddened” her to know that her “ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship” she shares with her children.
“It saddens me to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children … 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 … it was LONG before Instagram … I gave them everything … 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!!!” she said.
Although Britney’s ex-partner Kevin supported the conservatorship, he confessed that the star singer had “lost custody of both kids” and even added that she was “ordered to undergo random drug testing by the family law judge before the conservatorship was created.”
And that’s not all, Kevin further revealed that their kids had “a lot of questions” about this…
“I don’t know that I can answer all of them for them but I just tried to explain to them that your mom needed help, you know, and the people were in play to try to make that happen, to make it better,” he said.
Kevin didn’t back away from mentioning how Britney’s father was a “really caring” man.
“When Jamie took over, things got into order. He saved her life,” he recalled.
Although he admitted in the past that “he wasn’t sure the conservatorship should have lasted 13 years.”
According to TMZ, Kevin did an interview with the Daily Mail, where he confessed that his children not attending their mother’s wedding was “intentional.”
The video, which is expected to appear on ITV this week, showed Kevin making “it clear” that his and Britney’s “16-year-old Sean Preston and Jayden James haven’t seen their mom for months.”
Since his explosive comments, Kevin has taken things a step further…
Releasing a video of Britney arguing with her sons.
Kevin shared multiple videos on Wednesday, saying, “I can not sit back and let my sons be accused in this way after what they’ve been through.
As much as it hurts us, we decided as a family to post these videos the boys took when they were 11 & 12. This isn’t even the worst of it. The lies have to stop. I hope our kids grow up to be better than this.”
In one of the videos, Britney can be heard yelling at one of her sons, saying: “This is my house, if I wanna come in here and give you lotion for your face cuz it is coarse, and all you tell me is ‘it’s fine, it’s fine’ NO it’s not fine.”
She continues, “You better all start respecting me, are we clear? And when Robin calls … even Robin is a f*****g kid.” Robin is presumably her executive at the time, Robin Greenhill.
Britney ends the video, saying: “You all need to start treating me like a woman with worth. I am a woman, ok? Be nice to me. Do you understand?”

Since Federline’s recent comments, his lawyer has spoken out.
Mark Vincent Kaplan has claimed that the reason Britney’s kids haven’t spoken to her is that they feel uncomfortable around their mom, and have received upsetting messages from her in the past.
Kaplan added that Kevin feels the boys are angry at their mom for the way she’s treated them.
And that he has no control over them, proving they’ve chosen to stay away from their mom of their own accord, bringing up that the boys haven’t stayed with her overnight in years.
But in a twisting turn of events, Britney’s close pal, Jennifer Lopez, has lent her friend a helping hand through this whole ordeal.
That’s what friends are for, right?
In Britney’s original post, which featured a home video of the pop star, she shared some words of wisdom she once heard from J-Lo.
And trust us, it’s something you don’t want to miss!
“As Jennifer Lopez once said ‘You look right down that camera and tell every little girl in the world to get loud and never ever back down to giving light to injustice.
“I’m here to share that freedom is a state of mind!” Britney wrote on Instagram, along with the video.
“In a world where you have the right to use your feet…heart… mouth… eyes…and body…to express yourself however you may !!! Declaration of INDEPENDENCE … for equality and to be equal !!!” she added.
Recently it’s J-Lo’s support for her fellow pop star that has gotten all the attention.
On August 13, the ‘Let’s Get Loud’ singer reposted a photo on her Instagram stories of Britney and herself posing together at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards.
According to reports, she was in favor of her close pal.
“Stay strong,” J-Lo wrote in support of Britney.
And with the outpouring support of J-Lo, another singer has backed Britney, this time leaving no stone unturned to slam her ex-husband…
Singer Nicki Minaj has also voiced her opinion on the Kevin-Britney controversy…
Nicki didn’t hold back during her Amp Livestream on August 16 and called Kevin a “clown” after he recently criticized Britney’s parenting.
“How dare you. How dare you encourage this woman’s children to be a part of your nonsense,” she said.
“When they look back, they’re gonna say, ‘Why, why, why did we do this?’ They’re kids. They don’t know how detrimental this is,” Nicki added.
“Do you understand what kind of a clown you have to be to be a whole, grown f**king man, and as soon as you see somebody happy and getting married and moving on and being free and feeling good in their own skin, to do the very thing that you know is going to attempt to break them down?
“Only cowards use the media against a famous person who they once loved, they procreated with, they’re being taken care of by…. using the person’s fame as this constant ‘gotcha’ moment,” she continued.
The Queen of Rap then went ahead and said she hopes karma will come for Kevin and added that she doesn’t believe anyone will feel sorry for him
Nicki also revealed that she has seen Britney’s devotion to her kids.
“She loves her kids more than life itself,” confessed Nicki.
Nicki then concluded by telling Kevin to “leave [Britney] the f**k alone.”
Sadly, it doesn’t look like Kevin got the memo, as he’s spoken out once again against his ex-wife…
He talked about his difficult role as a father during their marriage.
Kevin appeared on 60 Minutes Australia to give his side of the story.
In a short clip of the interview, Kevin says: “I was mortified for her. I really was. I still feel bad,” referring to her conservatorship.
He later addressed Britney’s relationship with their sons at the time, saying: “The boys, the boys, the boys, I had to worry about them. I couldn’t get involved.”
Adding: “it’s been a few months since they’ve seen her.”
But Federline isn’t the only one to appear in the interview…
Their son, Jayden also spoke out about his upbringing and his mother’s mental health.
“I think Mom has struggled giving us both attention and showing us equal love & I don’t think she showed enough to Preston and I feel really bad for that,” he began.
“We’ve both been through so much pressure in the past that this is our safe place now, to process all the emotional trauma we’ve been through to heal, heal our mental state.”
Jayden, who spoke for himself and his older brother, talked about the difficulty of having a mom constantly in the spotlight but said he thinks their relationship with their mother is fixable.
“It’s just going to take a lot of time and effort,” he said, according to Daphne Barak’s account in the Daily Mail. “I just want her to get better mentally. When she gets better I really want to see her again.”
He addressed Britney directly, sharing how much he loves her.
“I love you a lot, I hope for the best for you,” Jayden said in an appeal to his mom. “Maybe one day we can sit down like this and talk again.”
Since hearing his comments, Britney has spoken out, writing in an Instagram post: “[I]t deeply saddens me to know [Jayden’s] outcry of saying I wasn’t up to his expectations of a mother … and maybe one day we can meet face to face and talk about this openly !!!!”
She also hit back at some of his comments: “As for my mental health … my dear child understand you must learn to pick up a book and read one before you resort to even thinking about my intellect sweetheart !!!”
Britney also took offense to Jayden’s comments defending her father, claiming: “He was just trying to be a father.”
She wrote: “Psss if you can honestly sit back and say with your sensible brilliant mind what memaw and paw paw did to me was fine and call them not bad people … then yes I have failed as a mother and hopefully, that’s a chat for you and your father to sit face to face and try to learn WHAT’S GOOD.”
