It's unclear why Spears deleted the post. However, this has come during her ongoing feud with ex-husband Kevin Federline. The latter recently posted and similarly deleted videos of his ex-wife scolding their sons from the passenger seat of a car. She yelled, "Have you lost your f–king mind? Have you lost your f–king mind?"

This was followed by a statement by Spears' attorney, Mathew Rosengart with Fox News Digital and The Daily Mail: "Britney Spears is a brilliantly talented, extremely hardworking icon, who is rightfully beloved and respected by millions around the world." He added, "The same, unfortunately, cannot be said about Mr. Federline, who for reasons that are inexplicable, decided to give a gratuitous interview that has hurt the mother of his children."

"Britney has faithfully supported her children and she loves them dearly. Whether he realizes it or not, Mr. Federline has not only violated the privacy and dignity of the mother of his children, he has undermined his own children, whose privacy he should protect," he continued. "Putting aside his ITV interview, Mr. Federline’s ill-advised decision to post an old video of his 11 and 12-year-old children was cruel, bottom of the barrel stuff. 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 concluded, "We urge Mr. Federline to act with a measure of grace and decency and to cease from publicly discussing private matters, which benefits no one."
