Britney Spears publicly responded after her youngest son said that his grandfather Jamie Spears doesn’t “deserve” the “hate” he’s getting for controlling the singer in a 13-year conservatorship.
In his very first interview, Jayden James Federline, 15, claimed that Jamie Spears “was just trying to be a father” to the “Toxic” singer, and “doesn’t deserve all the hatred he is getting in the media,” for his controversial role as Britney’s financial conservator.
“At first he was just trying to be like any father letting her pursue her daughter’s dream of becoming a superstar but I did think maybe the conservatorship went on too long,” the teenager admitted.
Jayden believes that Britney is “very angry” that she was “working for too long” while under Jamie’s thumb, and that she should “have taken a break and relaxed.”
Though he insists the entire Spears clan, who the “Gimme More” singer has become estranged from, “are not bad people,” and know what he and elder brother Preston, 16, “are going through now.”
Spears took to Instagram to address Preston’s interview on Thursday night. “I’ve tried my best at being the best person I can be,” she wrote.
She said she hopes that both her children will “one day understand her reasoning,” for her frequent semi-nude social media posts, after she has been “basically held hostage” under the terms of her conservatorship.
“Finally at 40 without the restraints of what my family did to me,” she began. “I say to my son Jayden that I send all the love in the world to you everyday for the rest of my life.”
Spears added that her love for her “children has no boundaries,” but she is “deeply” saddened by his take on her experience.
Addressing him directly she noted that maybe one day they can “meet face to face” and he could explain to her why their family “would do that to anyone.”
She also told him that if he believes that what his grandparents did to her was “fine and call them not bad people,” then she has failed him as a mother.
