Jayden Federline, one of Britney Spears’ two children with her ex Kevin Federline, has shed some light on the status of his relationship with his mom.

Since the ending of her conservatorship last year, Spears has gotten into online rows with most members of her family, and her children Jayden, 15 and Preston, 16, have reportedly not visited the singer in months.

“I 100 percent think this can be fixed,” Jayden told ITV of their relationship. “It’s just going to take a lot of time and effort. I just want her to get better mentally. When she gets better, I really want to see her again.”

He also said to his mother during the interview, “I love you a lot. I hope the best for you.”

Kevin Federline had also suggested in a prior interview that her high-school-aged sons were keeping their distance because of Spears’ recent nude Instagram posts, but Jayden didn’t make any reference to that in his interview.

Preston did not make any comment.

Spears responded to Jayden’s statements in a lengthy public post.

“My love for my children has no boundaries and it deeply saddens me to know his outcry of saying I wasn’t up to his expectations of a mother… and maybe one day we can meet face to face and talk about this openly,” she wrote in part.

She also lashed out at Jayden’s dad. “I helped your father who hasn’t had a job for 15 years,” she said. “I’m sure the standards of your dad smoking weed every day benefits your daily life at 15 and 16 to partake in a VERY COOL GENERATION!”

The most aggressive Spears got with her son was when she responded to his mention of her mental health status.

“As for my mental health… my dear child understand you must learn to pick a book up and read one before you resort to even thinking about my intellect sweetheart!”

That’s a hard thing to hear a mother write to her child, but Spears has been judged as crazy and unstable for many years to the point where her father Jamie Spears was able to leverage it into the conservatorship.
