Britney’s Lawyer releases a statement in the wake of unauthorised videos

Let’s be honest. As far as co-parenting goes, it’s never cool to slam your kids’ mother in public. No freaking way. Where are your morals at, Kev?

On Wednesday, Britney Spears’ ex-husband, Kevin Federline posted a now-deleted video of her fighting with their sons on Instagram, with the captioned message, “I can not sit back and let my sons be accused in this way after what they’ve been through. As much as it hurts us, we decided as a family to post these videos.” He continued, “this isn’t even the worst of it, the lies have to stop. I hope our kids grow up to be better than this.”

The three Instagram videos, which Federline deleted early Thursday morning, appear to be secretly recorded by Jayden and Sean, who are now 15 and 16 respectively, four years ago. The now-deleted videos capture the moments between a responsible parent and her sons, which K-Fed has taken out of context, in a bid to manipulate and use against her.

Britney supporters were quick to respond on Twitter: ​​“Kevin Federaline [sic] posted illegally recorded videos that he made his sons record of Britney Spears disciplining and arguing with her kids to prove a point? I will say it did prove a point. It proved Britney can be a responsible parent who can keep her kids in check when needed.”

Another user added, “The fact that Britney Spears has to remind her own kids that she is a WOMAN and she deserves RESPECT tells us all we need to know about Kevin Federline’s parental influence. That man is pure evil and he’s raised those kids in his image. Truly tragic.” 

Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart has stepped up to represent his client, releasing an impassioned statement, calling the singer’s ex-husband’s video post “cruel bottom of the barrel stuff.” Mathew has also described Britney as a hard-working and brilliantly talented icon, adding that “the same, unfortunately, can’t be said about Mr. Federline.”

It appears the former dancer may have inadvertently created a world of legal trouble for himself, including cyberbullying, cyber harassment statutes, and sharing unauthorised videos of the popstar and her two sons.
