Britney Spears’ Post-Conservatorship Timeline: Kevin Federline Drama & More


  • Several netizens defended Britney Spears after watching Kevin Federline's videos on Instagram
  • Twitter users said the "Toxic" singer was only parenting their sons, and one said Spears was much nicer to her kids than her
  • Federline already deleted the Instagram post after the backlash; Spears' lawyer warned him of legal repercussions

Britney Spears received the support of the netizens after her ex-husband Kevin Federline shared videos of her arguing with their sons on social media.

Spears and Federline have been feuding online following the latter's interview with ITV News, where he spoke about the "Toxic" singer's relationship with their sons. On Wednesday, Spears called their two sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden, 15, "hateful."

Their dad clapped back at his ex-wife by sharing three videos the two boys secretly recorded when they were with their mom four years ago on Instagram. The clips showed Spears arguing with their boys in different instances. However, Twitter users disapproved of Federline's move.

"It's so bizarre that Kevin Federline is posting videos of Britney's kids 'arguing' with her that are just her being a parent while they are mad disrespectful to her. Like... good for her knowing what it means to parent," author Roxane Gay tweeted.

In the caption, Federline said the videos were not the worst. However, author, writer and editor Sasha Brown-Worsham, who is also a mom of three said, "She was much nicer to her kids in those videos than I ever am to mine. What a backfire."

Another user pointed out that Spears was only parenting their sons.

"So, Kevin Federline thinks he'll make Britney look bad by posting videos of her literally parenting her children. 1st video she wants to put lotion on one of her [son's] face bc he's chapped, and she tells them to treat her like a human being," the netizen wrote.

The user added, "2nd video, is an argument bc she took one of the boy's phones away bc he was walking barefoot in the snow. She's literally just parenting teenagers. What does Kevin do? Let them get away with everything bc he's too stoned to parent?"

Spears' lawyer Mathew Rosengart released a statement addressing the Instagram post. He warned Spears' ex-husband that he could face legal charges because of it.

"In addition to demeaning himself and violating societal norms, he has now also created various legal issues for himself including, but not limited to, implicating cyber-harassment and cyber-bullying statutes, among other things," he said.

Rosengart also shared with the public that the "Lucky" singer wanted to keep things between her and her sons private.

Federline already deleted the videos, Page Six reported. An unnamed source close to Spears told the outlet the Instagram post was "disgusting."

"This is terrible, Kevin is disgusting. He is weaponizing the kids by releasing the videos. But in these clips, Britney is just being a mom," the insider said.
