LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Many wonder what the status of Britney Spears’ relationship with her sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, whom she shares with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, has been since her 13-year conservatorship ended. However, speculations got worse when her two children did not attend Britney’s nuptials with Sam Asghari in June of this year. But now, her younger son has finally broken his silence about the family split and where their relationship with the 40-year-old singer stands.

According to DailyMail, Britney's former husband earlier said that the sons wanted to avoid the chaos of their mother's private life and hence, they didn't attend her wedding. To which Britney responded by saying in an Instagram post, which is now deleted, that her sons abandoned her and were "being hateful." Commenting on this to documentary filmmaker Daphne Barak in an interview, that will air on ITV News on September 2, Jayden said, "At the time it just wasn't a good time to go. 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 Preston, I just don't see how that situation would have ended on good terms."

As quoted by DailyMail, Jayden, who has no hate for his mother, spoke about the relationship and said, "I 100% think this can be fixed. It's just going to take a lot of time and effort. I just want her to get better mentally. When she gets better I really want to see her again," and added, "I love you a lot, I hope for the best for you. Maybe one day we can sit down like this and talk again."

Detailing his growing up years with the famous singer and how he dealt with the media surrounding the conservatorship, Jayden said, "There was this TV and it just showed all these people, and it showed her singing and dancing on the stage, and when I saw that I was like 'Wow, that is a lot of people' and I came to the realization of how famous she was and how successful she is as a person and that inspired me." He also said that his grandfather, Jamie Spears, "doesn't deserve all the hatred he is getting in the media. I love him, with all my heart. He was just trying to be a father." "At first he was just trying to be like any father letting her pursue her daughter's dream of becoming a superstar but I did think maybe the conservatorship went on too long, probably why my Mum was very angry about the whole situation that she was working for too long and I personally think she was. She should have taken a break and relaxed," Jaydan described.

Jayden shared that his older brother, Sean, who is his support system, doesn't like to be clicked. So, he asked Britney not to post his picture online but she ended up uploading and "it didn't go well." He said that posting pictures online helps her. "Social media helps her. So if that's what she wants to do that's what she wants to do, I'm not going to hate her for that. At the same time, she should come to the realization of whatever it is that stops her loving her family," the son said. He also mentioned how Britney treated him better than Preston.

"I think Mom has struggled giving us both attention and showing us equal love & I don't think she showed enough to Preston and I feel really bad for that. We've both been through so much pressure in the past that this is our safe place now, to process all the emotional trauma we've been through to heal, heal our mental state," the son further added.
