'I saw a man who cared': Britney Spears' ex-husband Kevin Federline believes dad Jamie saved her life
Kevin Federline, Britney Spears' ex-husband, believes that her controversial conservatorship under her estranged father Jamie "saved her life". The former backup dancer turned DJ has shared his views on Britney’s 13-year-long conservatorship under her dad Jamie Spears which was terminated in November last year.
When asked if Britney’s father had made the right choice in laying down the conservatorship during an interview with 60 Minutes Australia, Kevin replied: "I saw a man who cared. 100 percent Jamie saved her back then. I feel that by Jamie stepping in as conservator, nobody else was willing to do it, I feel like Jamie Spears really helped that situation at first." To clarify his stance on the situation, Kevin said he stood away from everything because he had to take care of his boys. "I wasn't involved in any of it, so I don't know how the conservatorship came about, whose decision it was. All I know is that you have a family who is worried about their daughter, and they are doing whatever they can to help her. I stayed so far away because of the boys. I had to worry about them. I couldn't get involved in the other stuff."
'It was all set up': Britney Spears REVEALS her abusive parents were behind her controversial conservatorship
Kevin Federline, 44, was married to Britney Spears from 2004 to 2007, sharing two sons named Sean, 16 and Jade, 15. After their divorce in 2019, Kevin was allocated seventy percent of their children's custody. He believes it is essential for his children to share a close relationship with their grandparents, Jamie and Lynne Spears. "I would absolutely welcome him back. Especially if that's what the boys wanted. I have no hard feelings towards Jamie. People make mistakes. I feel bad for him. He's been put through the wringer. I'm not privy to what's gone on and I've stayed away for a reason. Until I see that it's actually proven I'm not going to keep my kids away from him. I can't wait until the restraining order is over because I am going to call him. I know he feels horrible for what's happened, and the boys have forgiven him,” Kevin added despite the children being distanced from their grandfather for disorderly conduct. Kevin went on further to admit that his children sided with their mother on this topic as they only wanted the best for her with what made her happy.
Kevin has also admitted that it has been years since he last spoke with his ex-wife as the ex-duo have failed to manage time for each other. “We’d talk when the kids were younger,” he said.
Britney and Sam react to Kevin's interview
Britney and her husband Sam Asghari have both reacted on Instagram to Kevin’s interview, blasting him for the comments he has made. The 28-year-old Iranian-American model and actor, Asghari took a dig at Kevin as he posted on his now-expired Instagram story.
"There is no validity to his statement regarding the kids distancing themselves and it is irresponsible to make that statement publicly. The boys are very smart and will be 18 soon to make their own decisions and may eventually realize the 'tough' part was having a father who hasn’t worked much in over 15 years as a role model."
