Britney Spears Slams Ryan Seacrest For Questioning Her Motherhood
In Britney Spears’ recently released memoir, The Woman In Me, the pop star has called out another man who has wronged her. Back in 2007, Ryan Seacrest asked Spears questions that primarily revolved around her motherhood and custody battle with Kevin Federline rather than focusing on her album release at the time.
In the book, obtained by Daily Mail, Spears, 42, says the only press she did for her album Blackout was a live radio interview with Seacrest. The interview took place in October 2007 and was supposed to be about her fifth studio album, which features songs like “Break The Ice,” “Gimme More,” and “Piece of Me.” Instead, Britney recalled Seacrest asked her questions like, “‘How do you respond to those who criticize you as a mom?’ And, ‘Do you feel like you’re doing everything you can for your kids?’ And, ‘How often will you see them?'”
She continues in the memoir, “It felt like that was the only thing people wanted to talk about: whether or not I was a fit mother. Not about how I’d made such a strong album while holding two babies on my hips and being pursued by dozens of dangerous men all day every day.” At this point in her life, Spears faced her highly-publicized mental health crisis, including her infamous head-shaving and an attack on a paparazzi car with an umbrella. Around the time of her interview with Seacrest, Spears had lost physical custody of her two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, to ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Despite Seacrest’s lack of sensitivity, Spears clarified that she doesn’t hold ill will toward the media personality. She has been interviewed by him and appeared onstage as presenters with him following their 2007 interview.
Spears’ tell-all memoir, The Woman in Me is available now whenever books are sold or downloaded.
