‘They were my everything’: Britney Spears says a huge part of her 'died' after her sons stopped talking to her
'I looked forward to seeing them, then all of a sudden they were gone, it was like my heart stopped beating,' Britney Spears said on Instagram
CALABASAS, LOS ANGELES: American singer and dancer Britney Jean Spears confessed that a “huge part of me died” after her sons, Sean, 16, and Jayden,15, stopped speaking to her in a small piece of brief extract of audio posts shared on Instagram on Saturday, September 10, Spears shared, “I used to have my kids way more than Kevin [Federline] — people don’t remember that part because they always focus on the negative. When they were 6-9 I had them most of the time."
“Since they’ve gone, I feel like a huge part of me has died. They were my purpose, my joy, they were my everything,” the Kentwood native added.
“I looked forward to seeing them — that was what I lived for. Then all of a sudden they were gone…it was like my heart stopped beating. I don’t understand how easy it is for them to cut me off like that. I don’t understand it,” she added.
Just a week before Britney's latest comments came, her son Jayden participated in an interview with dad Kevin, where he talked about his and his brother Sean's relationship with the 40-year-old singer. The 15-year-old said "It’s almost like she has to post something to get attention. It’s been like this for years and years and years and may never stop." He also added that his ailing relationship with the chart-topper could be repaired, but it would take "a lot of time." It became publically obvious about the tension going on between the "Princess of pop" and her sons after the boys were not in attendance at her June wedding to Sam Asghari, 28, which the teenager explained was a result of family drama. “At the time it just wasn’t a good time to go,” Jayden explained.
“I’m not saying that I’m not happy for her, I’m really happy for them, but she didn’t invite the whole family, and then if it was just going to be me and [Sean] Preston, I just don’t see how that situation would have ended on good terms," he added.
On Britney's end, she says that her boys just randomly stopped talking to her one day after she said she wanted to see them more. “That one time I said, ‘I want to see you more’ you called your dad and I never saw you again,” Brit recalled in another post on September 5.
“I didn’t do anything wrong and I know I’m not perfect, but the love I’ve given you and how much I adored you in your diplomatic ways, speaking like [my dad Jamie] — self-entitled, ‘This can be fixed, I’ll see her when she’s better.’ Jayden it was a miracle I even had a normal conversation when I got out of that place. But you were just like my other family, you secretly loved looking at me like something wrong with me,” she went on.
The singer alleged that the real reason for the interview was financial, given that her elder son Sean turns 17 this week while Jayden will be 16 soon, Kevin has only two more years of child support which she claims is "40 grand a month."
She asked, “Do you guys want me to continue to ‘get better' so I can continue giving your dad 40 grand a month [in child support]?” she questioned on September 5. “Or is the reason you guys have decided to be hateful is that it’s actually over in two years and you don’t get anything?”
