Britney Spears shared her thoughts on comments made by 15-year-old son Jayden James in his “60 Minutes Australia” interview.
In a voice memo shared via Instagram, Britney said, “Jayden, as you undermine my behavior just like my whole family always has with, ‘Hope she gets better, I will pray for her’ … Pray for what?”
“I keep working so I can pay off [my mother Lynne Spears’] legal fees and her house.” She then suggested that Jayden’s “hateful” remarks were rooted in fear of her financial obligations ending soon.
Jayden turns 16 on Sept. 12, while his older brother, Sean Preston, turns 17 on Sept. 14. Britney shares both teen boys with ex-husband Kevin Federline, who also participated in the “60 Minutes Australia” interview.
Britney said, “Do you guys want me to get better so I can continue to give your dad $40,000 a month? Or is the reasoning behind you guys deciding to be hateful is because it’s actually over in two years and you don’t get anything?”
Jayden told celebrity interviewer Daphne Barak that he and Preston no longer spend time with their mom, but hope to reunite with her in the future when she “[gets] better mentally.”
Britney told Jayden via Instagram that she needs “unconditional love and support” from her family, not disparaging comments about her mental state.
She said, “It saddens me not one of you have valued me as a person. You’ve witnessed how my family has been to me and that’s all you know. Like I said, I feel you all secretly like to say something’s wrong with me.”
Britney also detailed her memory of a conversation she had with Jayden before he and Preston decided to stop visiting her.
“I will say it. I sat in that kitchen and looked you straight in the eyes, beautiful boy, and said, ‘How come I can’t see you guys anymore? Or just see you guys more? I look forward to seeing you guys weekly'. You said, ‘Mama, oh, it’ll change.’”
Britney elaborated, “You and your brother left me in that house always two hours early. Preston would sleep. You would play the piano the whole time. And if I didn’t shower you guys with gifts and have amazing food ready and play a motherf—king saint, it was still never good enough.”
She seemed to place blame on her estranged father, Jamie Spears, for her current dynamic with Jayden and Sean. Jamie implemented the nearly 14-year conservatorship that controlled his famous daughter’s life before its November 2021 termination.
Britney added, “Honestly, my dad needs to be in jail for the rest of his life."
Jayden defended Jamie in the “60 Minutes Australia” interview, insisting he had Britney’s best interests in mind when establishing the restrictive legal arrangement.
