For the unversed, Britney was put under conservatorship after her infamous public breakdown in 2008 followed by hospitalization and rehab due to her behavior. At that time, her father requested the court for an emergency “temporary” conservatorship concerning that his daughter was unable to manage herself in the middle of her mental health struggles. Since then, Jamie was given the legal right to look after and make decisions regarding Britney’s finances, health, business deals, and personal life which he managed up until 2019.

According to Jamie’s lawyer, Alex Weingarten, “Britney’s counsel claims Britney is exempt from discovery obligations regarding her allegations of wrongdoing, but Jamie has a right to prepare his case and depose Britney, as she is the individual making unsupported claims against him.” He added, “Britney’s counsel has no legitimate legal basis to object to Britney’s deposition,” while referring to the popstar’s ” public social media posts containing incendiary allegations of various factual matters.”

According to the files, the singer’s attorney wrote that Ms. Britney has already addressed this topic, which may involve “emotionally difficult topics. ” The filing states, “She claims through her court filings and through her social media musings to know all kinds of information relating to her allegations of wrongdoing, accordingly, Britney either: (1) has the knowledge about her allegations that she professes to have in court filings and on social media; or (2) has no such knowledge or support and simply believes that she can say whatever she wants in court and on social media regardless of whether her allegations are true.”

Jamie Spears was suspended as conservator of Ms. Britney Spears in September 2021. Her conservatorship was terminated two months later.
