Britney Spears and her ex-husband Kevin Federline are speaking out against a report that claimed her family is fearful that she is using drugs. 

The Daily Mail reported last week that family members are fearful that Spears - who shares sons Sean Preston and Jayden James with Federline - is on crystal meth

The publication claimed that those close to the 'Baby One More Time...' hitmaker are concerned about her bizarre Instagram posts. It further alleged that the 41-year-old singer is in a "dangerous place" after ending her 13-year conservatorship in 2021. 

Ferderline was quoted as saying in the report: "I fear she's on meth – I've been praying someone would make it public and that she wakes up."

The former dancer allegedly added: "It's terrifying. She is the mother of my boys."

Spears' son Sean Preston was also quoted in the report. "I hope she'll listen to us... before it's too late," he allegedly said.

Spears reacted to the report in a lengthy post she shared on Instagram. She noted that the claims are untrue and questioned if her son really made such comments.

"It makes me sad because I tried so hard to make things nice for you and it was never good enough. So you guys go behind my back and talk about me … it breaks my heart and the news is so low," she wrote. 

The star added that she feels bullied by the media. 

"It's sad because everyone sits back as if that's ok to make up lies to that extent ... Why am I told I have to sit back and rise above ??? When they all go so low ??? Hopefully, it is just the news being hateful and Kevin nor Preston said any of those things either way I will be fine working out to Throb!!!"

Federline has also reacted to the report in the Daily Mail and The Sun. The quotes were allegedly made during conversations he had with journalist, Daphne Barak.

Federline admitted to allowing the journalist into his home but accused her of fabricating the story. He did not specify which parts were fabricated.

"It saddens our family that Daphne Barak and Erbil Gunasti have decided to fabricate lies and publish the heart ache our family has endured, along with the trauma of our minor children in the Daily Mail and The Sun," he told TMZ

Federline added: "We did allow Daphne & Bill into our home because we trusted them, but that trust was lost and we severed ties back in March for many reasons we choose not to go into here."

Kevin Federline Moving to Hawaii

Federline is set to move to Hawaii with their sons and the two children he shares with his current wife, Victoria Prince.

Spears has agreed to the move which is said to be happening soon. 

Some have accused Federline of moving to Hawaii to extend the child support he receives from Spears. She reportedly pays him $40,000 (R740,000) every month. 

According to the Daily Mail report, Hawaii allows for child support payments to be made until the age of 23 compared to 18 in most states in the US. Spears' son Sean Preston will turn 18 in September. 

Meanwhile, Federline and Prince are reportedly being sued for $15,000 (R270,000) in unpaid school fees for their two children. 

According to court papers seen by Page Six, the couple “failed and refused and continue to fail and refuse to pay all or any part of the remaining balance due". 

The family is reportedly moving to Hawaii because Prince has a work offer there.

Here's a look at how social media users reacted to the Daily Mail's report about Spears, including claims that Federline's wife took a swipe at the singer by alleging she did not want her son to play the piano.

"Britney used to yell at Jayden for practising the piano at her home. He was making too much noise. It was us, me, who encouraged Jayden to practice," she allegedly said.
