Britney Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline is open to their children reconciling with the pop star’s allegedly abusive father.
“I would absolutely welcome Jamie Spears back in the boys’ lives. Especially if that’s what the boys wanted,” Federline, 44, said in a rare interview set to air on the UK’s ITV next week (via the Daily Mail).
Although Federline and Britney’s sons, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, currently have a restraining order against Jamie, the DJ said he does not “have any hard feelings” toward his former father-in-law these days.
“People make mistakes,” he said. “I feel bad for him. I feel like he’s been put through the wringer.”
The Ventura County District Attorney’s Office declined to file criminal charges against Jamie, but the incident tarnished his relationship with his grandsons.
Jayden called Jamie a “pretty big d–k” on Instagram Live in March 2020 and even went so far as to say, “He can go die.”
Britney, 40, has also accused Jamie, 70, of abuse, saying in court in June 2021 that he had forced her to go on tour, sent her to a mental health facility against her will and prevented her from getting married and having more children during her conservatorship.
“He was the one who approved all of it,” the Grammy winner told a Los Angeles judge at the time of her dad, who was suspended as her conservator three months later.
