Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, have spoken out about why they did not attend their mother’s wedding to Sam Asghari in June.
According to the Daily Mail UK, the singer’s two children, whom she shares with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, spoke candidly about their decision not to attend the wedding in an interview with documentary filmmaker Daphne Barak for ITV.
“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.”
Unfortunately, the actress’s relationship with her only children is not currently “on good terms.”
Britney Spears is embroiled in a public feud with Kevin after he questioned her parenting in an interview, claiming Sean and Jayden have decided not to see their mother right now.
Spears shot back on Instagram, writing:
“It saddens me to hear that my ex husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children… As we all know, raising teenage boys is never easy for anyone.”
Federline also claimed that Britney’s recent provocative social media selfies exacerbated the problem, calling it “difficult” for the high school-aged boys.
Spears alluded to these remarks:
“It concerns me the reason is based on my Instagram. It was LONG before Instagram.”
In the same interview, Jayden insists that there is “no animosity” between them and their mother, but he admits it will take time and effort to repair their strained relationship. The ray of hope stems from Jayden’s firm belief that this relationship can be repaired if enough time and effort are put into it. He also stated that he wants his mother to be more mentally healthy and that once she recovers, he is willing to meet and talk with her again.
He went on to say how much he adores his mother.
According to the Daily Mail, despite being the youngest brother, Jayden is the most outgoing; he is a self-taught pianist who, like his mother, views music as “therapy” and speaks on his siblings’ behalf. Preston is also interested in music and art and is more sensitive and camera-shy. Because of their different upbringings, the two have an unbreakable bond.
