However, it hasn’t been widely discussed if Spears may possibly be a victim of parental alienation, a vicious abuse tactic that breaks down the relationship between exes and their kids. But now, some fans are starting to speculate on social media whether or not this could be the case for Spears.
Spears has been vocal about her struggles to form a healthy connection with her two teenage sons. The boys lived much of their young lives with Jamie Spears, Britney’s father and the main appointee of her conservatorship, while Britney and Federline duked it out in post-divorce custody battles.
What’s adding fuel to the theory of parental alienation is that Federline has not been shy about depicting his ex-wife to be a bad mom to the media. Many years ago, he publicly shared videos of what looked like Britney yelling at her children. Some are alleging that this behavior is in line with parental alienation, as it paints Spears as an unfit parent and works to distance her from her children.
