In a teaser for an upcoming 60 Minutes Australia interview that was posted on Wednesday, August 31, the 44-year-old backup dancer talked about Britney's conservatorship battle and why he wasn't involved in it. While leaning back in a chair and wearing a blue button-up shirt over a black tee, Federline said, "The boys, the boys, the boys. I had to worry about them. I couldn’t get involved." The short clip doesn't mention anything else but this, where he explains that raising their sons was his priority and hence couldn't support the 40-year-old pop singer in her endeavor to end the troublesome arrangements.

In a leaked video circulating on YouTube, Britney shares her traumatic experience with the whole conservatorship battle. In the video, she can be heard saying, "A woman introduced the idea (conservatorship) to my dad, and my mom actually helped him follow through and made it all happen." She continued, "I was told I was fat every day. They made me feel like nothing, and I went along with it. I was a robot, honestly. I didn’t give a f*ck anymore. It was demoralizing. You also have to understand, it was like 15 years of touring and doing shows. And I’m 30 years old, living under my dad’s rules. And while all of this is going on, my mom’s witnessing this, my brother, my friends — they all go along with it."
