Britney calls kids “mistakes”

Britney SpearsAn upcoming Star exposé features interviews with three of Britney Spears’ former employees. They claim Britney fills up her two sons (both are under two years of age) with caffeine—pop and coffee—so that they stay awake at night “to ensure they sleep late.” She also wakes “them up if they fall asleep before 11 p.m.” One former employee says Britney tried to whiten her 23-month-old son Sean’s teeth, “but he kept crying. Finally, Britney threw the strips away, telling Sean, ‘Fine, you’ll just have ugly teeth then!’” Another claims that when Britney is upset, “she yells and screams at the boys and once told them, ‘You were both mistakes!’ She’s called them ‘burdens, a pain in the ass and the reason (your) father left.”

    Oh my God! And I thought my parents were awful.

    Britney sucks ass….esp as a parent. I used to think a lot of what I heard were rumours, but all of this is adding up now…..there is no way to keep things like this quiet when they are actually true. This has been going on for some time now and she is under the microscope due to Kevin’s wonderful actions of getting full custody….man I never thought I would see the day that I would have said wonderful to that but I sure am…..

    how does she still have her children? the government should have taken them away along time ago. she is disgusting

    I am robot, If its in writing it must be true.

    I am a bit of a hypocrite since I don’t usually read other peoples business especially when it’s most likely not true. This is none of my business, laters.

    She is nothing but a spoiled brat. She does not deserve the right to be called “mother” to anyone. Kevin deserves the right to raise his sons. Hopefully this happens soon. Britney will wake up when it is too late.

  6. Peggy • August 17, 2007 @ 10:17 AM

    If this is true, then those poor children should be taken from her..
    And soon, not later when more damage has been done..
    That is child abuse !

  7. Linda • August 17, 2007 @ 10:40 AM

    They can’t get these innocent kids away from her fast enough. You know the laws for mothers rights are so strongly in their favor that it would be awful if she somehow managed to keep them because of some beleeding heart out there who felt she was just “confused” and “stressed.” Get those kids away from her and get them some help to overcome what she has done.

    She doesn’t deserve to keep her children. I know this is also a bad choice but a better choice, Kevin should definitely keep the children.

    the kind of help brittaney needs isn’t out yet there still tryin to invent it , i think that the kids shuld be takin away frm her A.S.A.P.. that is no way to treat ur kids especially when there so young giving them all that junk that there not supposed to have. giving them all that shit is jus goin to effect there health,and then to put them to bed late @ night so they will sleep in during the day that’s wat u call a unfit mother.the biggest thing is telling them that there a mistake, who in there right mind tells there kids that like wtf thats beyond anything else u have done, jus to let u kno there ur boold and flesh too u stuipd whore.
    but in a way i think that you’ll come around and be a human again but more than likely won’t be in this lifetime.

  11. Debbie • August 17, 2007 @ 11:03 AM

    Britney Spears should have her uterus taken away from her and she should never ever be allowed to have children. These children should have been taken from her a long time ago. Britney Spears obviously is four slices short of a loaf. Anyone who does this to their children and tells them they are a mistake should be lifeless themselves and Britney is just a waste of oxygen. I feel sorry for her parents and they should disown her. Britney has to answer to God one day and I hope she lives in hell here on earth. Her kids deserve heaven and her kids are so special and they deserve a home where they can be praised and raised probably. Britney, go away and never come back.

  12. Provide Name • August 17, 2007 @ 11:42 AM

    I believe Kevin wants custody of the kids to get CHILD SUPPORT!!!! Come on people, who wouldn’t want to get custody to get all that money she would have to give every month? He would probably get i dunno, maybe more than $30k a month because she makes money!

    Now about her mothering skills, she probably didn’t have any when she had her 1st chid but who does? NOBODY!!! I believe that you BECOME a mother IF you want and that is why there are so many “mothers” that do ill will to their children because they do NOT want to be mothers.

    That is my take on Britney’s situation 🙂 Cheers

  13. Anonymous • August 17, 2007 @ 11:43 AM

    If Britney thinks her kids are such a big mistake why the hell did she decide to get pregnant with them in the first place. I think the kids would be better off with their father. At least they woudn’t have to put up with the constant child abuse everyday. Britney needs to get off the crack and booze and wake the hell up before its too late.

  14. Joanne Barevich • August 17, 2007 @ 11:53 AM

    Gee she reminds me of my ex-daughter-in-law. It took my son and I eight years to gain custody of my precious grandaughter but we finally won. Please, Kevin dont give up the rewards are worth it. My Carli is now 15 years old and my pride and joy.

  15. Shelley • August 17, 2007 @ 12:15 PM

    I think Britney needs more help. She is obviouslly suffering from some mental issues. She was so in love with Kevin and I believe it just destroyed her when they parted (even though she wanted it that way) She should get help not only for herself but for her children

  16. Anon • August 17, 2007 @ 12:16 PM

    HELLO people, are you going to believe everything that you read? This is unfair to her, ghastly if it’s true, but some of it sounds confounded and ridiculous. Wow, if you’re going to believe outrageous star “info” like this, you have too much time on your hands. Stop posting stuff like this!

  17. Harold Potter • August 17, 2007 @ 12:28 PM

    I find her honesty refreshing, commendable even. At least Brit isn’t raising a couple of spoiled brats who will become a burden on society.

  18. Honest Phil • August 17, 2007 @ 12:36 PM

    “Shes called them burdens, a pain in the ass and the reason (your) father left.

    It’s no wonder Britney resents her children if they’re the reason her marriage broke up.

  19. Lena • August 17, 2007 @ 12:38 PM

    Although this story may not be entirely true, I think that people should still show concern for her children. She parties all the time and she hangs out with people like Paris Hilton who laugh hysterically while calling their female friends “fire-crotch” and so on. Forget the kids actual safety, I just don’t want them to grow up to be lazy, uneducated, and dope-addicted morons. Why did Britney have to procreate?!

  20. kerri • August 17, 2007 @ 12:46 PM

    If Britney pours her recent hardships into her work her new cd will be a stunner!

  22. Tina • August 17, 2007 @ 1:26 PM

    OK this is total B.S. should this kind of behaviour happen to us normal (not famous) people we would have lost our kids to some child protection workers by now.The thought of this woman raisning children makes my stomache turn.Obviously she has proven she cant handle children nor responsibility and she should stop blaming other things and people for her stupidity.She is supposed to be a grown up woman who takes care of ones self and has proven to be nothing but a menace to society,herself and her children.Thank goodness for Kevin.

  30. Soulful • August 17, 2007 @ 4:11 PM

    I, unlike some people, will withhold judgement. I don’t beleive all that I hear and read. Especially from former employees who probably have grudges.

  31. Anonymous • August 17, 2007 @ 4:19 PM

    I think there should be a law that forces unfit parents (both male and female) to be “fixed” to prevent further acts of stupidity on their parts. Brittany’s parents should be so proud of the THING they’ve raised. She’s sub-human. Animals are better than most “higher reasoning” mammals. Time to clean out the gene pool!

  32. Jeff • August 17, 2007 @ 5:06 PM

    Reality Check,
    How much money does she have? Probably enough to pay for a night and day nanny for each child. She probably only sees the kids when it’s convenient for her.
    True, she has major problems but the truth is that these are most probably fabrications or stories from disgruntled employees.
    Yes, I don’t like Brittany, I never thought she had talent and was just marketed brilliantly, but I can’t imagine that she even spent enough time with the kids to do and say those awful things.

    K-fed is also a waste of space as well.

    p.s. Thank God my life is so boring, just me and my wife and 2 boys. All we have to do is unconditionally love them. Now that’s life!

    Have a nice day.

    SIGH! I find it hard to believe that people think these stories are true. Case in point… note how all the people who say this are FORMER employees. In addition, I think its kind of a coincidence that these acusations come up ONLY after all eyes are on britney. Obviously, these people are trying to get their moment in the spotlight at someone elses expense.

  35. Anonymous • August 17, 2007 @ 6:49 PM

    Nice interview. I hate Britney… but I am smart enough to know that those three people she fired decided to try to get their 15 minutes of fame. I guess they did just that. I’m sure that with all the poperatzy she gets child services would have taken those kids away if she was really that bad. Don’t get me wrong she is a duche bag… but come on.

  36. gigi • August 17, 2007 @ 7:20 PM

    She is really a stupid mother when her sons are just under two years old! Not to mention, she treat’s them harshly! I mean she is a teribble mother and they’ve just been born, man! I’m starting to think that she is not making a comeback right after those horrible events!!!!! she is now officially done for.

  37. a mom herself • August 17, 2007 @ 7:33 PM

    Sad… obviously she is in way over her head and does not have the proper support system to show her how to make things better. 🙁

  38. brenda • August 17, 2007 @ 7:46 PM

    Don’t believe anything you hear and only about half of what you see. If Brit had done half of what she’s accused of she’d have lost her sons months ago. Sounds like disgruntled employees to me or an ex out to cause harm. When I become perfect I’ll be the first to judge. Until then I won’t throw stones, sounds like enough are happy to do so.

  39. unknow • August 17, 2007 @ 8:33 PM

    You know something I have read over some of the remarks about Britney Spears and her so called remarks she made to her children. Anyhow you can’t believe everything you read or hear about people now adays. Because for one thing people make up stories to hurt people of various reasons to achieve their only goal to hurt the one they dislike totally. And this is sick but it does happen alot in this world to day.

  40. Shazam Says!!!! • August 17, 2007 @ 9:12 PM


    Think about how much money these “Former Employees” got for this story. Man are a lot of you stupid. You all sound like a bunch of jealous fat women. The idiot father of the kids only wants them to support a lifestyle that he is too untalented to obtain for himself. Can you imagine this scenario?

    The kids go to school and their teacher says, what does your daddy do for a living? The kids say “My daddy takes his clothes off for other men for money , and if he really likes them, he’ll have sex with them. The teacher takes the kids aside and says, surprisingly, “really?” The kid says “no, he’s Kevin Federline. I was just too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids.”
    Don’t believe everything you read.
    Later, gullibillies!!!

  41. Lycosyncer • August 17, 2007 @ 9:33 PM

    While I do agree with some of the people who say that don’t believe everything you read, I’m still convinced that the future for Britney is looks very grim because of all of those crazy antics that she caused ever since her marriage with K-Fed, and that if this is really what she said and with no regrets at all, then it’s official that her fans will start to lose faith in her for her endless embarressing nosedives from her former glory.

    Not to mention that if she brings more and more negative attention everytime instead of doing something good upon the public, then it would no doubt that she’ll forever be ruined.

    After reading the article, I can’t believe that I’m actually rooting for K-Fed to get back his kids.

  42. Clarke • August 17, 2007 @ 9:35 PM

    I hate Britney and I always will. I can’t believe what she does to her kids, they must live sad lives, they have to take her kids from her. She can’t raise them because she is a terrible mother!!!

  43. dan • August 17, 2007 @ 11:31 PM

    If it is true, with witnesses the children can be taken away. If the witness fails to report child abuse they should / can be charged as well as the parent!

    what a horrible person. If you think your kids are a mistake then that makes her a dumbass because she clearly didnt want to have kids and they should have used a condom. I dont care if they were married if you have sex at anytime wear a condom otherwise you will get pregnant.Oh yeah and I think britneys music career will be over pretty soon if she keeps this up. Send her to rehab, shove her in a room filled with babies and lock her in for a year and then we shall see if shes a changed person. Oh and the wigs that she wears all the time make her look 10 times more ugly than she already is. Shes getting really fat too.BrianBebee

    Britney is just a child herself… she has probably not been given good examples to be a mother to her children. SOmeone should be there to support and help her, not criticize her. Kevin is NOT a better choice for those children… he fathers babies like it’s a feather in his cap and only latched onto Britney because she was beautiful, famous and gullible. Her “crew” should be finding the help she needs instead of spreading gossip.

    If Britney was a normal person (not famous) and acts they way she does now, her kids would have been taken away long time ago, the goverment seems to think that since she is famous they should let a few things slide, the goverment down there is stupid

    Well, its simple really: adoption. Isn’t there a long list of people willing to do anything for a healthy fully caucasian child?

    Maybe its time for the CPS to step in and take charge.

    The Britney can quickly become the nothing she was destined to return to and her husband–well, who says you can’t wear Prada in a trailer park?

    Just an idea…

  59. Christina • August 20, 2007 @ 5:37 PM

    This is all hearsay. I can’t say if this is true or not because there are no solid facts to back this up. Show me the proof, solid proof. Gossip is not proof.

    Brittany is young that is a fact and she wants to party and have a good time but to judge her as a mom is not fair. It is hard enough raising kids as a normal person but as a celebrity it is even harder.

    If she did do these things mentioned then yes I agree that she is not ready for the responsibility of kids but there is no solid proof she actually did this just someone saying she did. Can I trust this other person is telling the truth and not exaggerating facts?

    I would like to have some solid proof she said this and did these things but lets say there was solid proof and she is a terrible mom, then what? I feel bad for the kids but it is none of our business nor our problem. I am sure she won’t kill her own kids, but she will make mistakes because she is young and a mother, I am sure there are other young mothers out there worse than Brittany but we never hear about them because they are not famous.

    No mother truly feels her kids are mistakes, kids can be very hard to handle and frustrating at times. As humans we say things we do not mean at times of frustration or stress.

    Hate her as much as you want…but media and the corporate world created a personality, dropped her after putting her through the microscope…and now that she’s unstable and quite lost, media has a field day…

    I wish her my best. And hope she can get the support she needs to support her kids in return. Cause right, now… she doesn’t have the tools…. (we ain’t just talking money)
