Kevin Federline, Britney Spears’ ex-husband, published several old tapes that appeared to show the singer squabbling with their two sons. K-Fed, who was married to Spears from 2004 until 2007, when she released the song “Toxic,” posted three Instagram videos on Thursday that appeared to show her berating her boys Sean and Jayden.
“I can not sit back and let my sons be accused in this way after what they’ve been through. As much as it hurts us, we decided as a family to post these videos,” Federline wrote with the recordings, claiming that their sons were 11 and 12 at the time the footage was shot.
“This isn’t even the worst of it,” he continued. “The lies have to stop. I hope our kids grow up to be better than this.” Outrage over K-Fed’s choice to post the films online resulted, according to a source in Britney’s camp who told Page Six “This is terrible, Kevin is disgusting. He is weaponizing the kids by releasing the videos. But in these clips, Britney is just being a mom.”
Spears appears to be oblivious that one of her sons is filming her in the first video as she enters their bedroom. Spears was allegedly heard yelling in the second video, which was likewise ostensibly recorded without the singer’s knowledge.
