While Britney Spears’ life definitely seems to be on the upswing since her 13-year conservatoryship finally came to an end (she’s finally married, she’s writing a memoir), there are still plenty of residual family tensions and complicated relationships to sort through – many of which take place in public. After it was revealed that Spears’ two sons, Jayden and Sean, weren’t attending their wedding, fans wanted to know why. Well, Jayden explains.
Spears’ relationship with her teenage sons has been of particular interest and concern to the pop star’s many fans, especially given her often-controversial relationship with her father, Kevin Federline. In an ITV interview in early August (via Today), Federline claimed, “The boys have decided they’re not going to watch her right now. It’s been a few months since you’ve seen her. They made the decision not to go to their wedding.” After Spears responded to that interview on Instagram, describing it as “hateful,” Federline then posted two videos of Spears apparently fighting with her sons when they were 11 and 11 12 years old were TMZ.
Now Federline is back on ITV with his youngest son in tow explaining her decision to skip the wedding.
Jayden says it wasn’t a good time
In an interview with 60 Minutes Australia (via the Daily Mail), Jayden, son of Britney Spears, said he and his brother Sean Preston are happy for their mother, but it just wasn’t a good time for them to attend the wedding . “I’m really happy for her, but she didn’t invite the whole family, and then if it was just Preston and I, I just don’t see how this situation would have turned out well,” Jayden, accompanied by his father Kevin Federline , said. By “the whole family,” Jayden was probably referring to the rest of the Spearses — including father Jamie and sister Jamie Lynn — with whom Britney isn’t exactly on par.
Jayden has also denied some of his mother’s claims about her parents Jamie and Lynne Spears. “They are not bad people,” he said. “You know what we’re going through right now. They want our future to be what we want it to be.”
Spears herself responded to her son in a lengthy Instagram statement, writing, “Sending you all the love in the world every day for the rest of my life!” But she also added, “I helped your dad who hasn’t had a job for 15 years had more.” , then yes, I failed as a mother.” Honestly, we just wish none of that happened in public.
