In case you missed the memo, Britney Spears is done letting others control her narrative. Since ending her 13-year conservatory last year, the pop star has targeted those who jailed her and anyone who threatened to restrict their freedoms. When her son Jayden Federline took issue with how she expressed herself on social media, the pop icon hopped on Instagram to declare that she “isn’t sorry.” The recent rift between Spears and her sons was shocking, if not heartbreaking, as both sides spoke to the media instead of to each other.
If Spears is the Princess of Pop, her son Jayden might as well be the Duke of Drama — because that’s exactly what he stirred up during a recent interview on 60 Minutes Australia. The “Toxic” singer responded to her son’s comments with a stunning audio clip on Instagram, and she didn’t hold back her true feelings.
Britney didn’t mince words
Britney Spears clapped back at her son in the since-deleted clip (via Page Six) for being “just like my other family,” following his recent comments about their broken relationship. “You witnessed how my family was to me and that’s all you know. Like I said, I feel like you all secretly like to say there’s something wrong with me,” she said. The singer was particularly critical of Jayden Federline’s supportive words about her father, Jamie Spears, who she said should “spend the rest of his life in prison.”
Spears continued, berating her son for the language he used in the interview: “Jayden, while you’re undermining my behavior, as my whole family has always done, with, ‘I hope she’s better, I’m going for they pray’. Are you praying for what? That I keep working so I can pay mom’s legal fees and her house?” The pop star surmised that her sons wanted her “to be okay for financial reasons.” “You want me to be better so I can help your dad asked the singer. “Or is the reason you’re making this decision to be hateful because it’s supposed to be over in two years and you’re not getting anything?”
Spears began lashing out at Jayden before the full interview even aired. On September 1, she criticized him in an Instagram post for defending her parents. She wrote, “If you can honestly say with your sane brilliant mind that what Memaw and Pawpaw did to me was fine and not call them bad people, then yes, I failed as a mother.”
