The Lucky singer has recently gone public about her tension with her children after Jayden told DailyMail.com and ITV exclusively that he was uncomfortable with her frequent social media posts.

“It’s almost like she has to post something on Instagram to get attention,” he said.

Spears said in a post (which she later deleted) last weekend that she was “upset” at the comments and that she “didn’t want to see her sons” until she felt “valued.”

She said that while she was “desperate,” she should have appreciated herself “much more” in retrospect.

“All I know is that my love for my children is more than anything and I am sorry if I have ever hurt you in any way,” she said, adding that she had been told she was had ‘blocked’ her. “Jayden and Preston, I adore you… I’m so blessed to even call you mine. And I just want you to know.’

Jayden told DailyMail.com that he previously asked his mother not to post his photo on social media, and “she did it anyway…so it didn’t go well.”

He said that while he thinks social media helps his mother, it’s not something he’s comfortable with.

“If that’s what she wants to do, that’s what she wants to do,” he said. “That’s why I’m not going to hate her. At the same time, she must come to realize whatever it is that is preventing her from loving her family.”

He added: “This has been going on for years and years and years and chances are it will never stop, but for me I hope she will.”

Her ex Kevin Federline, 44, told DailyMail.com that he often apologizes to his sons for the repercussions they face when she posts racy selfies online.

“I’m trying to explain to them, ‘Look, maybe that’s just another way she’s trying to express herself,'” he said. “But that doesn’t take away from what it does to them. It is heavy. I can’t imagine what it feels like to go to high school as a teenager.’

Spears initially responded with a statement saying she hoped to have a face-to-face conversation with her son, while noting that she is the family’s main financial services provider, and the suspense could be that funding dries up when he and his brother Sean will turn 18 in the next few years.
