Britney Spears & Sam Asghari slam pop singer's ex-husband Kevin Federline for claiming her sons are avoiding her

On Saturday, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari shared messages on social media contradicting claims from Spears’ ex, Kevin Federline, that her sons, Preston, 16 and Jayden, 15, no longer want to be involved with their mother. Federline told The Daily Mail that the kids chose not to attend her recent wedding to Asghari, and that they are uncomfortable with her social media presence.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, she wrote, "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. It concerns me the reason is based on my Instagram. It was LONG before Instagram." "I gave them everything. I'll say it... My mother told me ‘you should GIVE them to their dad’ ... I'm sharing this because I can … Have a good day folks!!!" she added.

On the other hand, Sam came out in support of his wife. He shared, "To clarify my wife has never posted a nude selfie except of her butt wich is quite modest these days. All other posts were implied nudity wich can be seen in any ad for lotion or soap. There is not validity to his statement regarding the kids distancing themselves and it is irresponsible to make that statement publicly. The boys are very smart and will be 18 soon to make their own decisions and may eventually realize the ‘tough’ part was having a father who hasn’t worked much in over 15 years as a role model. Kevin's gravy train would end soon enough which probably explains the timing of these hurtful statements." He further wrote, "I do not know him personally and don’t have anything against him besides him choosing to vilify my wife. His character is revealed by approval of the cruel 13 year CShip and his loyalty to Jaimie indicates his approval at time of its conception as well."

He concluded by saying, "Things that are now considered normal issues and behaviour easily dealt with [in] therapy or other ways were magnified to justify a 13 year prison sentence. Anyone approving of it is wrong of benefiting from it somehow. I will not comment on this matter again except to say that I have a job" In a statement, Federline said, “The boys have decided they are not seeing her right now.” “It’s been a few months since they’ve seen her. They made the decision not to go to her wedding
