Britney Spears hasn’t had the opportunity to celebrate married life like she should. In the weeks following her marriage to longtime fiancé Sam Asghari, Spears was inundated with attacks from her ex, Kevin Federline. In August, Federline said in an ITV interview that the two sons he shares with Spears, Preston and Jayden, have chosen to “distance” from their mother. “The boys have decided not to see her at the moment,” he explained. “It’s been a few months since you’ve seen her. They made the decision not to go to their wedding.”
Federline also claimed that the nude photos, which Spears has grown accustomed to posting, made the boys uncomfortable and created tension between her and her sons, per the Daily Mail. “I can’t imagine what it’s like to be a teenager who has to go to high school,” he said. Spears fired back with a statement about a since-deleted Instagram story. “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 teenagers isn’t easy for anyone,” she reportedly wrote, per USA Today. “It worries me that the reason is based on my Instagram. It was WAY before Instagram.” Spears’ husband also championed her via his own Instagram story.
Asghari wasn’t the only one who came to Spears’ defense. In a recent interview, Nicki Minaj took a tough stance alongside the pop star and didn’t hold back her feelings towards Federline.
Nicki Minaj had tough words for K-Fed
When it comes to the seemingly never-ending conflict between Kevin Federline and Britney Spears, there’s no confusion as to where Nicki Minaj stands. The “Super Bass” singer is firmly on Spears’ side. “Do you understand what kind of clown you have to be to be a whole, grown damn man and once you see someone happy and getting married,” Minaj said during an interview with AMP Live. “To do the very thing you know will try to break her?” She was particularly disgusted that Federline would stoop so low to speak to the press.
“Only cowards use the media against a famous person they once loved,” Minaj said. As if doubling down, Federline not only spoke out against Spears, but also posted (and then deleted) videos of Spears fighting with Jayden and Preston to Page Six. “I cannot sit back and allow my sons to be blamed in this way after what they have been through,” he reportedly wrote. “As much as it hurts us, we made the decision as a family to post these videos. That’s not even the worst part.”
Minaj didn’t have time for that either. “How dare you,” she said during the live. “How dare you encourage this woman’s children to be part of your nonsense. And when they look back, they’ll say, ‘Why, why, why did we do that?’ they are children They don’t know how damaging that is.” Fans will have to wait and see if K-Fed will hit back or take Minaj’s words to heart.
