A statement from Spears' attorney Mathew Rosengart was sent to ET after Kevin Federline shared

since-deleted footage of the pop diva, 40, and her boys Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, on Instagram late Wednesday night.

"Britney Spears is adored and admired by millions of people throughout the globe, and with good reason.

She is very gifted and works tremendously hard. Sadly, the same can't be said for Mr. Federline, 

who for some reason chose to give an unnecessary interview that upset his children's mother "Rosengart started out with some kind of declaration.

"Britney has always been there for her kids, and her love for them is undeniable. Whether or not he is aware of it,

Mr. Federline has not only violated the privacy and dignity of the mother of his children, but he has also damaged the privacy of his own children, 

which he should be protecting "The speaker continued. "Mr. Federline's choice to share an old film of his 11 and 12-year-old children was horrible, 

bottom-of-the-barrel behaviour, even putting aside his ITV interview. He has not only brought shame upon himself 

and broken social conventions, but he has also opened himself up to a number of legal complications, 

such as potential violations of cyber-harassment and cyber-bullying laws."
