LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: While Britney Spears' dark days under her father's conservatorship have ended, the newly married Princess of Pop cannot seem to catch a break. Her former bodyguard Fernando Flores has talked about her former days, alleging that while Spears wanted to be a good mother, she was barely in a position to look after her own self. This comes close on the heels of recent events in the singer's personal life when her sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, refused to attend her wedding with Sam Asghari

Their decision to stay with their father, Kevin Federline, came as a blow to the 'Toxic' singer, especially after the recent public feud between the former couple on social media. Now, her former bodyguard, who worked for her in 2010 before quitting in eight months, has offered his insights into her strained relationship with her children.

According to Flores, the long-drawn drama in Spears' life did not give her the chance to be a good mother. While she is now free, the trauma of the past years has caused extensive damage to her personal life, especially her relationship with her children. A result of this is the fact that they now choose to remain exclusively with their father.

In an interview with The Sun, Flores commented, "I’m sorry to say this, but it doesn’t surprise me that she no longer sees her kids." The former bodyguard always "felt that once they were old enough, they would make the decision not to stay with her." After all, he says, "Kevin gave those boys a normal childhood, but Britney just couldn’t do the same."

Elaborating on the personal space that the singer is in right now, Flores says he fears for her familial ties. "The fact that she has fallen out with her father, sister and with Kevin and her boys speaks volumes about where she is right now," he said. "I’ve never met Sam and hopefully he is a good guy, but I do fear that history is repeating itself."

He also cited Spears' erratic behavior and lack of knowledge on what to do with them as a possible reason that pushed her children away. "Britney spent a lot of time in her courtyard in the middle of her house chain-smoking cigarettes. She always looked forward to seeing her children but, once they were there, she didn’t know what to do with them."

In addition, she would often insist on leaving mid-way through a movie, which would upset the boys. "She would say, 'OK, it’s time to go.' I would say, 'The kids want to stay,' but she wouldn’t take no for an answer. The boys would be upset, crying, and you can’t treat children like that," he added.

Notably, Flores has often offered his two cents on Spears' personal affairs, having served as her temporary bodyguard in 2010 when she was under conservatorship. He had quit after eight months, alleging sexual harassment and that Spears would often expose herself before him. His claims were denied and the matter was settled out of court.
