For Britney Spears, distance doesn’t make the heart grow fonder.

In a series of audio messages posted to Instagram Saturday, the pop princess addressed her strained relationship with sons Jayden and Sean Preston Federline after Jayden opened up about his relationship with Spears in a recent interview.

"I used to have my kids at one point way more than (ex-husband Kevin Federline)," Spears said.

"From when they were 6 to 9 years old I had them 70% of the time, and in the course since they've been gone, I've honestly felt like a huge part of me has died and like I have no purpose anymore.

She continued: "I looked forward to seeing them. That was what I lived for, and then all of a sudden they were gone and I was like, 'Did my heart just stop beating?' And honestly, I don't understand how it's so easy for them just to cut me off like that."

Earlier this month, Spears' 15-year-old son Jayden sat down for an interview with filmmaker Daphne Barak, published in the Daily Mail and aired in part on ITV in the U.K. In the interview, Jayden defended grandfather Jamie Spears, who headed Spears’ controversial conservatorship for 13 years until its termination in November, as well as grandmother Lynne Spears.

"They are not bad people," Jayden said. "They know what we are going through now. They want our future to be what we want it to be. They just want to watch over us."

Spears offered a swift rebuttal to her son’s comments on Instagram.

Jayden also chimed in on his mother’s recent social media posts, many of which have consisted of nude photos of Spears as well as lengthy tirades against her family.
