Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears wants pop star to take part in deposition over her statements


Britney Spears’ ‘cult-like’ conservatorship was terminated by a judge last November after 13 years of having her $60million fortune and personal affairs controlled by her 69-year-old father Jamie Spears.

And in the months leading up to the arrangement’s end, Britney exposed the true state of her relationship with Jamie, as well as her mother Lynne and sister Jamie Lynn.

She’s put her family on blast for allegedly taking advantage of her during the ‘demoralizing and degrading’ conservatorship, even going as far as to say they belong in jail for ‘what they did to me.’

And now, with Britney living life estranged from her father, sister and mother, DailyMail.com is looking back on how the conservatorship tore the Spears family apart.

Jamie Spears 

Jamie was granted a ‘temporary conservatorship’ over his daughter in 2008 after the singer landed herself in the headlines for erratic behavior – including THAT infamous head shaving incident – and, eventually, suffering a nervous breakdown.

Despite its initial temporary nature, the conservatorship was extended indefinitely, leaving Britney under the control of her father for the next 13 years.

Though Britney has previously hinted at the fact that the conservatorship felt ‘just like Groundhog Day every day’ to her, the Lucky singer rarely spoke about the arrangement or the extent of her father’s involvement in her financial, personal and career decisions.

Jamie would abruptly step down as conservator in 2019, citing personal health reasons.’ Jodi Montgomery, an experienced conservator, would temporarily take over his duties.

Obvious tensions between Jamie and Britney became public when the performer objected to him remaining her conservator the following year, even threatening to cease performing if he remained in power.

Her attorney told NBC that Britney was ‘afraid of her father’ – a sentiment that would be echoed in the heartbreaking court testimony she delivered in July 2021.

Though her bid to give Jamie the boot was denied, Britney’s fight to end her conservatorship as a while would gain intense momentum in 2021 following the release of  The New York Times’ documentary Framing Britney Spears, which took a deep dive into the controversial conservatorship.

Just one month later, Britney’s lawyer Samuel Ingham III filed to have Jamie removed and to have Jodi takeover. And in April, she’d request to address the court regarding the life she’d been forced to live for the past 13 years.

In the 24-minute testimony, Britney slammed Jamie and claimed that the conservatorship was ‘allowing my dad to ruin my life.’

She accused her family of purposely instigating her ‘angry tantrums’ and ‘crazy’ behavior, which led to her undergoing a number of psych evaluations ‘against my will.’

She further alleged that Jamie and the rest of the family were staying at her home in Jackson Beach, Florida at the time and that her father ‘didn’t care to ask what was going on then.’ 

Britney also told the court that she was ‘always extremely scared’ of Jamie while growing up due to his struggles with alcohol.

By August 2021, after continued efforts in the courts by Britney’s new lawyer Mathew S. Rosengart, Jamie agreed to step down as conservator.

After learning he would finally be abandoning the role, Britney blasted the conservatorship as ‘a family business’ and thanked Jamie for ‘exiting out of my life and finally allowing me to live mine !!!!

The following month, Jamie filed a petition to end the conservatorship as a whole, noting that he ‘unconditionally loves and supports his daughter’ – it was officially terminated by a judge on November 12.

In the months since the termination, Britney has continued to use Instagram to air out her grievances with her father, with her lawyer also recently accusing the Spears family patriarch of ‘bully[ing] and harass[ing]’ Britney after the fact.

Lynne Spears

Lynne Spears expressed publicly in a statement published in July 2021 that she fully supported her daughter’s big to remove Jamie as conservator.

It is clear to me that James P. Spears is incapable of putting my daughter’s interests ahead of his own on both a professional and a personal level,’ it read.

Yet Jamie hit back, accusing Lynne of being an absent mother and claiming she was paid $150,000 a year by Britney for her mansion in Louisiana.

‘In stark contrast, it appears that Lynne is the one who is incapable of putting her daughter’s interests ahead of her own,’ Jamie Spears’ statement said.

‘Lynne has not been involved in her daughter’s life for most of the past twelve years.’

Controversially, Lynne had published her own memoir Through The Storm: A Real Story Of Fame And Family In A Tabloid World in 2008, the year Jamie was made Britney’s conservator after the pop star’s months-long mental breakdown.

Britney would later accuse her mother of ‘secretly’ ruining her life and being the real mastermind behind her conservatorship in a now-deleted Instagram post published in November.

‘My dad may have started the conservatorship 13 years ago … but what people don’t know is that my mom is the one who gave him the idea,’ Britney captioned, adding that Jamie was ‘not smart enough’ to come up with the idea. 

She continued: ‘She secretly ruined my life … and yes I will call her and [Britney’s former manager] Lou Taylor out on it … so take your whole ‘I have NO IDEA what’s going on’ attitude and go f*** yourself!!!!’ 

More recently in a post published in April of this year, Britney alleged that her mother ‘thrived on drama’ and that she would argue with a ‘drunk’ Jamie ‘every night of my life.’

 Jamie Lynn Spears

Britney and her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears have developed a highly contentious relationship over the years – which would go into overdrive as Britney’s bid to end her long-standing conservatorship revved up in the courts.

Jamie Lynn broke her silence on the matter in an emotional Instagram video published in June 2021, where she stated that she wanted nothing but ‘happiness’ for her sister and that she always has and ‘always will’ support her.

The Zoey 101 star insisted that she’d made a ‘very conscious choice’ to ‘only participate’ in the singer’s life as her sister – and that she was not on Britney’s payroll as fans had previously accused her of being.

The video appeared to rile Britney up as she launched countless Instagram attacks directed at her sister Jamie Lynn, as well as her mother and father, one of which saw the star threaten to expose them if she ever landed a TV interview. 

Jamie Lynn publicly begged for ‘peace’ amid her sister releasing the bombshell social media claims, which later resulted in Britney unfollowing her ‘mean a** sister’ on Instagram.

Controversial: In late 2021, Jamie Lynn announced she'd be releasing own memoir, titled Things I Should Have Said. Then while Jamie Lynn was doing publicity for the memoir she aired out a series of eye-catching allegations about Britney

In late 2021, Jamie Lynn announced she’d be releasing own memoir, titled Things I Should Have Said. She’d changed the titled from Must Confess, after receiving backlash from Britney fans over it being a partial lyric from Britney’s chart-topping track Baby One More Time.

Then while Jamie Lynn was doing publicity for the memoir she aired out a series of eye-catching allegations about Britney.

Jamie Lynn claimed her older sister once locked them both in a room with knife in hand, and described her behavior at one point as ‘erratic, paranoid and, spiraling.’

Britney categorically denied the knife story and retaliated by calling her sister a ‘scum person’ for telling ‘crazy lies’ about her.

As the bad blood between them rose to a boil, Britney also expressed regret that she had not ‘slapped you and Mamma right across your f***ing faces!!!!!’

During the week of the book’s release, Britney’s counsel sent Jamie Lynn a cease and desist over the ‘misleading or outrageous claims’ in the memoir.
