Britney Spears didn’t mince words in her response to her 15-year-old son Jayden’s recent interview with his father, Kevin Federline. The 40-year-old pop artist claimed that her ex-husband and younger son, who also spoke on behalf of his 16-year-old brother Sean, did so for monetary gain.
All of this, she said in a two-minute audio tape posted to Instagram on Monday, September 5.
She said before dropping a revelation that is destined to shock her fans:
“Pray for what? I keep working so I can pay off mom’s legal fees and her house? Do you guys want me to continue to get better so I can continue giving your dad 40 grand a month [in child support]? 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?”
Child support payments in California typically end when a child reaches the age of majority, which is 18 years old. Jayden will be eighteen in two years, and he will be sixteen in a matter of days, so her two-year plan is reasonable. Sean will also turn 17 next week, bringing him closer to his 18th birthday.
Jayden explained why he and his brother did not attend Britney’s wedding to Sam Asghari, how he feels about her social media profiles, and how he sees their relationship developing in the future in the interview that made headlines.
He told Daphne Barak, an ITV documentary filmmaker, that he is confident a solution is possible. He is only certain that time and effort will be required.
Britney Spears has already officially returned to the music scene, with a collaboration with Elton John to kick things off. Britney Spears and Elton John are still celebrating the success of their duet “Hold Me Closer” one week after its release. John stated that he is more concerned with his duet partner than himself.
“It’s all about her,” he said, noting that “Hold Me Closer” is Spears’ first new music in six years. Furthermore, the legendary “Rocket Man” singer predicted Spears’ future.
While Spears hasn’t been on the charts in a long time, John believes she’s on the verge of doing so. She also believes that the more successful the album is, the quicker Spears will recover.
