In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, Federline said Spears’ custody had “saved” her and claimed he had told his son about the nude photos Spears shared on social media after her custody ended. They “apologise”.
“I try to explain to them, ‘Look, maybe this is just another way she’s trying to express herself.’ But that doesn’t take away the fact that it’s done to them. It’s tough. I can’t imagine being a guy who has to go to high school. What it’s like to be a teenager,” Federline said.
