The legal team of Brittney Spears is once again going for the immediate removal of her father, Jamie Spears, as the conservator of her estate. This news came out after Brittney’s team filed their third petition on Monday, requesting him to immediately suspend Jamie as his daughter’s conservator after learning of his alleged surveillance of Britney. In court documents obtained by ET, Britney’s team claims there is “overwhelming evidence mandating the immediate suspension of James. P. Spears, by no later than Sept. 29, 2021,” including engaging in “horrifying and unconscionable invasions of his adult daughter’s privacy.”
A former employee named ALEX VLASOV of the security firm Black Box, who worked with the singer for almost 9 years, he claimed that Brittney’s conservators bugged her phone and home, monitoring and surveying the usage of her mobile and life indoors. Alex supported his claims with alleged emails, text messages and audio recordings he had over the course of his employment. He also alleged that Britney’s conservators, including her father, asked him how to put parental controls on her iPhone and sync the device’s iCloud with an iPad.
He added and said; “It really reminded me of somebody that was in prison,” Alex said during his sit-down interview. “And security was put in a position to be the prison guards essentially.” Britney’s attorney, Mathew S. Rosengart told the sources that the alleged surveillance of the 39-year old pop-star is a “violation of her privacy rights” and an example of the “deprivation of her civil liberties”. Unauthorized recording or monitoring of Britney’s private communications especially attorney-client communications, which are a sacrosanct part of the legal system represent an unconscionable and disgraceful violation of her privacy rights and a striking example of the deprivation of her civil liberties,” Rosengart explained. “Placing a listening device in Britney’s bedroom would be particularly horrifying and corroborates so much of her compelling, poignant testimony. Mr. Spears has crossed unfathomable lines and he must be held accountable.”
Not only is Britney’s legal team alleging that Jamie “captured attorney-client communications with her prior lawyer,” the petition also cites the documentary’s allegation that Jamie and others “secretly captured audio recording from her bedroom,” including private communications with her sons, Sean and Jayden. “Mr. Spears has crossed unfathomable lines. While they are not evidence, the allegations warrant serious investigation, certainly by Ms. Spears as, among other things, California is a ‘two-party’ consent state,” the docs further state.
“Regardless of the outcome of the allegations, what cannot be genuinely disputed is how deeply upsetting they are to Ms. Spears and if nothing else, they magnify the need to suspend Mr. Spears immediately. To be clear, his suspension will not impede the ultimate termination of the entire conservatorship, as Mr. Spears will be required during the transition to work with his temporary successor. The only thing Mr. Spears will ‘lose’ is something he should not have ever had the ability to further harm his daughter,” read the court documents.
“It is unknown if the court that is overseeing the singer’s conservatorship was aware or approved the surveillance. As far as Jamie being removed as her conservator, Britney has made it clear in the court docs that her father is not only to be removed from the conservatorship, but that she would like the conservatorship to be terminated quickly. Additionally, Britney is refusing to work as long as Jamie remains her conservator.
