Britney Spears reveals dad Jamie was ‘barred from seeing the kids’ following dramatic incident

Britney Spears reveals dad Jamie was ‘barred from seeing the kids’ following dramatic incident

She has spoken out about what happened in her brand new book

Britney Spears has revealed dad Jamie was ‘barred’ from seeing her sons following a dramatic incident that ended up with her then-husband, Kevin Federline, filing a police report.

Britney, 41, has released tell-all memoir The Woman in Me, which details the ‘freedom, fame, motherhood, survival, faith, and hope’ she has been through.

“In June 2021, the whole world was listening as Britney Spears spoke in open court,” the book’s synopsis says.

“The impact of sharing her voice – her truth – was undeniable, and it changed the course of her life and the lives of countless others.

The Woman in Me reveals for the first time her incredible journey – and the strength at the core of one of the greatest performers in pop history.”

She discusses her difficult relationship with dad Jamie Spears, who served as Britney’s conservator until 2021.

At one point, she says she was sent to ‘a facility’, claiming her father told her that if she didn’t go, she’d have to go to court and would be ‘embarrassing’.

“We will make you look like a f**king idiot, and trust me, you will not win,” Britney says he told her, adding: “It’s better me telling you to go versus a judge in court telling you.”

After being ‘locked up against her will’ for several months, Britney was finally allowed to go home.

“How had I managed not to kill myself in that place, put myself out of my misery like you’d shoot a lame horse?” she asks herself in the book.

“I believe that almost anyone else in my situation would have.

“Thinking about how close I came to doing just that, I wept. Then something happened to knock me out of my stupor.”

This 'something' was a dramatic altercation involving Jamie and one of his grandsons.

Britney continues: “That August, my father was arguing with Sean Preston, who was thirteen at the time. My son went to lock himself in a bedroom to end the fight, and my dad broke down the door and shook him.

“Kevin [Federline] filed a police report, and my father was barred from seeing the kids.”

Britney said she knew she had to 'summon one more round of strength, to fight one last time', desperate to 'end the conservatorship'.

"I didn't want those people running my life anymore," she added. "I didn't even want them in my goddamn kitchen.

"I didn't want them to have the power to keep me from my children or from my house or from my dogs or from my car ever, ever again."
