Britney Spears youngest son gave her son some tough love after he told the world that Jamie Spears doesn’t “deserve” all of the “hate” he’s getting from the media over his involvement in the singer’s questionably long conservatorship.
Jayden James Federline, 15, told “60 Minutes Australia” that his grandfather Jamie Spears “was just trying to be a father” to the “Hold Me Closer” singer, and “doesn’t deserve all the hatred he is getting in the media,” in the aftermath of the dissolution of the 13-year conservatorship he held his daughter under.
In his infinite teenage wisdom, the youngest Federline believes that Britney has ceased “to realize how much [Jamie] cares for her.”
“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,” Jayden did eventually admit.
He thinks that Britney is “very angry” she was “working for too long” while Jamie controlled her career, and that she should “have taken a break and relaxed,” despite his mother’s testimony that she was forced to work “seven days a week,” with no days off.
Jayden insisted that Jamie “was just trying to be a father,” the extended Spears family “are not bad people,” and are able to understand what he and his brother Preston, 16, “are going through now.”
Spears addressed Preston’s remarks in a lengthy statement on Instagram on Thursday night. “I’ve tried my best at being the best person I can be,” she wrote.
The “Toxic ” singer hopes her sons will “one day understand her reasoning,” for expressing her freedom on social media, after years of being “basically held hostage” in the conservatorship.
“Finally at 40 without the restraints of what my family did to me,” she explained. “I say to my son Jayden that I send all the love in the world to you everyday for the rest of my life.”
While her love for her “children has no boundaries,” Spears is “deeply” saddened that Jayden doesn’t believe she was “up to his expectations of a mother.”
The pop star added that maybe one day they can “meet face to face” so he could explain to her why their family “would do that to anyone.”
She also called out ex-Kevin Federline for failing to hold down a job for the last 15 years and smoking marijuana everyday. “It’s horrible to see your dad be a hypocrite and say the media is horrible, yet he has you talking about personal matters to them.”
She also told Jayden to “tell your father to go try and at least mow the lawn,” and said that if he believes her parents actions were “fine,” and could “call them not bad people,” then she failed him as a mother.
