Jamie’s legal team are reportedly attempting to challenge a number claims Britney has made against her father, including that she was “forced to give 8 tubes of blood for medical treatment” and “was not allowed to own pain-reliever meds.”
Britney Spears might be free from her conservatorship, but it seems her legal battles are far from over.
Jamie Spears — Britney’s father and former conservator — has filed a request for his daughter to take part in a deposition to answer his questions under oath.
The legal docs filed by Jamie’s team, which were first obtained by TMZ, appear to be centered around claims Britney has made, alleging that her father was abusive during her conservatorship.
To get you up to speed with all the relevant information, let’s quickly rewind back to June last year when Britney appeared in court to ask for an end to her nearly 14-year conservatorship, which gave her father and a number of lawyers control over her life and finances since 2008.
During this virtual court appearance, Britney spoke publicly for the very first time about the “abusive” terms of the agreement, comparing her experience to sex trafficking. She went on to tell the courtroom that her dad “and anyone involved in this conservatorship” should be in jail.
At the time, her father responded in a statement via his attorney, saying he was “sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain.”
As you’ll likely be aware, in the time since being freed from her father’s control, Britney has taken to social media to talk to her fans in more detail about the terms of her conservatorship — often commenting on her family’s culpability behind-the-scenes.
Echoing her testimony last year, Britney has written in social media posts that she feels her father should face legal consequences for allegedly abusing his role as conservator. “What Dad did to me, they don’t even do to criminals. … I’m honestly shocked Dad isn’t in jail,” she wrote on Twitter in January.
So, it is this particular aspect of Britney’s social media activity that Jamie is now attempting to bring to the forefront by requesting that she sits down for a full deposition.
