With Slumber Party (2016) being the last single Spears released before the now infamous “indefinite work hiatus.” The grammy-winning pop star Britney Spears may have been on a break in terms of her career. Nonetheless, the singer continues to make headlines. Britney Spears had alleged Jamie Spears (her father) of hiring a security firm that put her daughter under surveillance throughout her conservatorship, with allegations of monitoring her phone and bugging her bedroom to record her private conversations.

Her father placed the singer under a court-ordered conservatorship in 2008, and he served as her sole conservator for the majority of the following 13 years. The conservatorship was finally revoked in November 2021 after Spears’ father was suspended by the court in September 2021 following more than a decade of legal battles against the arrangement. Although the singer now has more flexibility, the legal dispute between her team and the record label has not been resolved.

Victory for Britney Spears?

Judge Brenda Penny required Britney Spears’ father to turn over all records about electronic monitoring. This action benefits the singer and shows that the court thinks there is justification to look into the stunning accusations further. The judge mandated that Spears’ father be deposed in Los Angeles during the next 30 days. To which, Jamie Spears’ attorney  Alex Weingarten had previously replied by saying, “It’s a deposition. Not an ambush.”

Weingarten and Mathew Rosengart, the pop star’s lawyer, engaged in a spirited argument during the hearing at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse. The singer, whose conservatorship was dissolved last year, has been engaged in a protracted court struggle with her father. Wednesday’s session was a significant triumph for her. In contrast to allowing his daughter to “go on with her life.” Rosengart claimed to the judge that his client’s father only files motions to “push up fees.” For “improper, unethical reasons,” Rosengart said, “Mr. Spears wants to drag her back into the conservatorship even now she is free.”

What’s next for the Spears?

The judge almost decided on that issue, first issuing a tentative order to deny Jamie Spears’ motion to depose his daughter, but then decided to continue the motion, requesting that the lawyers on both sides present their arguments to the court on why the singer should or should not sit for a deposition, ahead of the hearing on July 27.

After the hearing on Wednesday, Weingarten (Jamie Spears’s lawyer) chose not to address the media, but outside the courthouse, Rosengart (Britney Spears’s attorney) told reporters that his client only wants to “move on.” Rosengart said to the media, according to reports, “Mr. Spears, if he loves his daughter, as he purports to do, should leave her alone.” Instead of pursuing his daughter in court, he should go on with his life.
