Britney's first music release after the contentious 13-year legal conservatorship ended last week.

But recently, a number of significant family conflicts have surfaced as a result of her valiant fight for freedom.

Her 16-year-old son Preston and 15-year-old son Jayden sat down to talk about their strained mother-son bond.

I really love you, and I wish the best for you, Jayden remarked. Maybe one day we can have a conversation like this again."

That evening, the 40-year-old pop artist retaliated with a wild Instagram outburst.

Learn to pick up a book and read one before you turn to even considering my intellect, dear, she chided Jayden.

Britney reserved her harshest criticism for Kevin Federline, the father of the children.

The pop artist said that the father of her kids "used marijuana every day" and was a "hypocrite" who "hasn't had a job in 15 years."
