When it comes to the men in Britney Spears’ life, they haven’t always hit it off. After all, the pop star’s recent marriage to Sam Asghari was crashed by none other than Jason Alexander, her 55-hour ex-husband dating back to 2004. Then, amid the #FreeBritney saga in 2021, Asghari posted a scathing message about Spears’ father Jamie on his Instagram Story: “I have zero respect for someone who is trying to control our relationship and is constantly throwing obstacles in our way lays. I think Jamie is a total d**k.” It doesn’t sound like they patched things up given that the entire Spears family was absent from the wedding.
However, the issues between Spear’s father, husband and previous partners go back much further. The most contentious of her relationships, no era in the Princess of Pop’s romantic life generated more drama and debate than her time with Kevin Federline. Dubbed “K-Fed” by the tabloids, The View’s panel even showered its audience with confetti when the couple finally split. Many speculated that Federline used Spears to raise his own profile, as he was originally her backup dancer and later released his own music. While they divorced after two years, the former couple are still co-parents to their two teenage sons, Sean and Jayden.
Considering how Spears’ first husband reacted to her nuptials, some fans might be wondering what Federline thinks of Sam Asghari.
Kevin Federline is happy for Britney Spears and Sam Asghari
Compared to Britney Spears’ first husband Jason Alexander, Kevin Federline is taking the news of their wedding much better. Not only did he refrain from crashing the ceremony, but he released a statement about Spears and Asghari’s engagement in September 2021. Federline’s attorney Mark Kaplan told ET: “Kevin is very happy for Britney and wishes her and Sam a happy and fulfilling future together.
Federline previously spoke out in favor of Spears ending her conservatorship. Whatever toxicity the former couple may have had, it’s clearly in the past as they focus on raising their sons. While neither Sean nor Jayden attended the wedding, their absence reportedly had nothing to do with Federline and was a decision they made themselves.
Although Spears’ sons stayed home from the wedding, they still approve of Asghari. In a 2020 Instagram Live, Jayden said, “I like Sam, he’s good, he’s nice. He’s a really good guy.” Given the way his sons are speaking about Asghari, Kevin Federline doesn’t appear to have any negative feelings toward him or Spears. Those child support payments probably won’t hurt either!
Kevin Federline will be neighbors of the newlyweds
Even though he didn’t attend the wedding, Kevin Federline will soon be seeing more of Britney Spears and Sam Asghari as a married couple. They recently bought an $11.8 million home in Calabasas, California, in the same neighborhood as Federline. A source told ET, “Kevin was surprised that across California, with all the homes for sale and all the gated communities available, Britney and Sam decided to choose the same one Kevin lives in. Movement invites no paparazzi and is free to all , more power for them.”
Living so close will most likely help her children, who as of 2019 spend 70% of their time with Federline and the other 30 with Spears. According to TMZ, other stars who live in the neighborhood include newlywed colleagues Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker.
Overall, it seems like Federline’s main concern these days is making sure his sons are happy. Her mother’s own happiness helps with that, so it’s no surprise that he’s everything to Asghari.
