Britney Spears has shared a heartbreaking message for her two sons as their family drama continues to hit the headlines.

Spears' relationship with her boys, Jayden James and Sean Preston, has been pretty strained recently.

Things really seemed to boil over for the former couple when Federline used Instagram in August to leak private footage.

That came as the former backup dancer started speaking publicly about the mother of his children.

In it, he claimed their boys didn't like how much skin Spears likes to show on her Instagram account.

Had chosen not to spend regular time with her, revealing they hadn't seen her in months. 

"It saddens me to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss the relationship between me and my children.

 As we all know, raising teenage boys is never easy for anyone.

She then claimed she'd had a rocky relationship with her kids long before she started posting risqué snaps online, adding.
