The Oops!… I Did It Again vocalist said she ‘was desperate’ to see Jayden and Preston, 16, but should have valued herself ‘way more’ in hindsight.
‘All I know is my love for my children is more than anything and I’m sorry if I ever hurt you guys in any way,’ she said, adding that she was told they had ‘blocked’ her.
She continued: ‘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 had previously requested that his mother refrain from posting his photo and ‘she did it anyway … so it didn’t go well.’

Britney’s ex Kevin Federline told DailyMail.com that he’s frequently apologized to his sons over any fallout they receive when she posts racy selfies online, such as this one she posted earlier this month
He said that while he feels 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. ‘I’m not going to hate her for that. At the same time, she should come to the realization of whatever it is that stops her loving her family.’
He added: ‘This has gone on for years and years and years and there’s a high chance that this will never stop, but I’m hoping for me that she will stop.’
Her ex Kevin Federline, 44, told DailyMail.com that he’s frequently apologized to his sons over any fallout they receive when she posts racy selfies online.
‘I try to explain to them, “Look, maybe that’s just another way she tries to express herself,”‘ he said. ‘But that doesn’t take away from the fact of what it does to them. It’s tough. I can’t imagine how it feels to be a teenager having to go to high school.’
Spears initially responded with a statement saying she hoped to have an in person discussion with her son, while noting that she is the family’s chief financial provider, and tension could be that the funding will run dry when he and his brother Sean turn 18 in the next few years.
Professionally, Spears has been surging, as her new single with Elton John, Hold Me Closer, debuted in the number six spot on the Billboard Hot 100 , marking her first release of new music in years.
