Many people have opinions on the conservatorship that controlled Britney Spears life for more than a decade. One of those people? Her ex, Kevin Federline.

After many years, Federline, aka K-Fed, a former backup dancer, recently broke his silence about the pop star’s conservatorship in a controversial interview with 60 Minutes Australia. Federline’s thoughts on the matter are that Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, was doing the right thing in assuming legal control over her life back in 2008 after she was hospitalized multiple times.

Sears and Federline, who share two teenage sons, Sean and Jayden, were married for two years before splitting up in November 2006. He says, however, that he was not involved in placing Spears under the conservatorship, which was established after they broke up.

“I wasn’t involved in any of it, so I really don’t know how the conservatorship came about. I don’t know whose decision it was,” Federline said. “All I know is you have a family that is worried about their daughter, and trying to do whatever they can to help her.”

When the conservatorship ended in 2021 after 14 years of Spears being managed by her father, Federline says that their sons were glad for Spears—not because they thought it was right, necessarily, but because that’s what made their mom happy. “Both of them were so happy for her, you know? Because it’s not always about what’s right. It’s about this is what [she] wanted, you know, [she] got,” Federline said.

Jayden also spoke in the interview on his thought son the conservatorship and share similar opinions of his father. He viewed it as Spears’ father caring deeply for his daughter. “[Jamie] was trying to be like any father, like pursue his daughter’s dream of being a superstar, working and doing all these concerts and performing,” Jayden said. “But I think some people are just, like, ceasing to realize how much he cares about her.”
