Kevin Federline addressed his lack of public support for his ex-wife Britney Spears’ fight to end her conservatorship in a teaser for an upcoming 60 Minutes Australia interview released on Wednesday.
In the teaser from the episode, which will air on Sunday September 4, the 44-year-old former backup dancer said she ultimately didn’t get involved in her attempts to finish the arrangement because he was focused on making her raising sons, though the teaser doesn’t make it clear why he thought the choices were irreconcilable.
He previously revealed the sons he shares with Britney – 16-year-old Sean and 15-year-old Jayden – skipped their wedding to Sam Asghari and hadn’t seen her in months, which he says is partly due to semi-nude photos, which she has posted on Instagram since the end of her conservatory.

In the short clip, Federline admitted he felt “ashamed” for his ex-wife after she was placed under guardianship of her person and estate for 13 years.
“The boys, the boys, the boys. I had to worry about her,” he said, while reclining in a chair and wearing a blue button-down shirt over a black T-shirt. “I couldn’t interfere.”
Sean and Jayden apparently recently split from their mother, and they weren’t among the guests at their wedding in June.
“Although the boys will not be in attendance, Kevin and the boys are happy for Britney and wish her and Sam well in the future,” Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, said in a statement to TMZ at the time.

Earlier in the teaser, Federline looked emotional as he said he was struck by Britney’s struggles with her conservatorship.
“I was ashamed for her. I really was,” he said, adding, “I still feel bad about it.”
Later in the clip, Federline shared an abridged summary of his brief marriage to the Toxic singer.
“It was amazing — until it wasn’t,” he said.
The couple were together for just three months in 2004 before getting engaged in July of that year and they were married in September.
Britney gave Sean a birthday in September 2005 and Jayden followed about a year later in 2006, but the pop star filed for divorce in November 2006, which was finalized the following year.

During an impassioned court appearance before the end of her conservatorship, Spears had claimed that she wasn’t allowed to drive her own car and was forbidden from having her birth control coil removed in order to have a child with then-boyfriend Sam Asgari.
In an August interview with ITV, Federline claimed that “the boys have decided they’re not going to see her right now,” which he attributed to some of their raunchy post-conservatory Instagram posts.
‘It’s been a few months since you saw her. They made the decision not to go to their wedding,” he explained.
But the singer was quick to respond to Federline’s claims, suggesting the estrangement began before their daring post.

“I am saddened to hear that my ex-husband has decided to discuss my relationship with my children,” Spears wrote on Instagram on Aug. 6. ‘As we all know, raising teenagers isn’t easy for anyone… it concerns me that the reason is based on my Instagram… it was LONG before Instagram… I gave them my all… Just one word: HURTFUL.’
In his own testimony, Asghari also disputed Federline’s claims, adding a barb about his work history.
“The boys are very smart and will soon be 18 to make their own decisions and may eventually realize that the ‘hard’ part was having a father who hasn’t worked much in over 15 years , as a role model,” he wrote.
