Britney Spears has spoken out about the ongoing estrangement with her two sons, which she blames their father, Kevin Federline.
The pop star went on social media Saturday and said at one point she had the boys a lot when they were younger. She had physical custody of her kids more than her ex did.
She says she had them 70% of the time, TMZ reported.
The boys’ Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden Preston, 15, have not seen their mom in 6 months.
“Since they’ve been gone I’ve honestly felt like a huge part of me has died,” Spears said. She previously made angry posts on social media, calling them “hateful.”
She also said they were money-grubbing because child support payments will stop in a few years, further insinuating that’s why they went on TV.
The custody of the two boys has been a central issue of the family conflict. Before the conservatorship was set in place, a family law stripped Britney of all custody and gave her supervised visitation conditioned on random drug testing.
Once the conservatorship was established, she regained custody, which was about 50/50. However, over time, that began to wane, with the kids spending more time with Kevin than Britney.
Britney went on to say, “Like literally I have no purpose anymore — they were my joy, they were my everything. I look forward to seeing them.”
She says she’s bewildered “how it’s so easy just to cut me off like that.”
