Jamie, Britney Spears’ father, and lawyers for Britney Spears went toe-to–toe in a Wednesday hearing over Britney’s conservatorship ending. This was officially lifted back in November.
Although the estate of Britney, 40 years old is now under her control in writing, Britney is still fighting with Britney’s attorneys over a recent declaration filed by an investigator that corroborated claims about a secret listening system being installed in her bedroom.
Jamie’s attorney also requested that Judge Brenda Penny seal Britney’s personal medical records. He believes the “public has the rights to know” the context of his decisions as conservator.
In court: Jamie Spears asked a judge to release Britney’s sealed medical records at a Wednesday hearing so he can help defend himself against accusations he spied on her without her consent, People reported
Jamie, aged 69, attacked a explosive document from Britney’s attorneys Tuesday that detailed the results of the investigation into allegations that Britney instructed his security team to spy upon the star.
His attorney, Alex M. Weingarten, called the results ‘nonsense’, adding that ‘Virtually everything that is alleged is … fake or taken out of context,’ reported People.
Jamie’s lawyer requests that Britney’s lengthy conservatorship case records be released to him to “demonstrate there is no evidence of these allegations” in order to properly defend him against them.
Britney’s medical records are included in this sealed document. Jamie, Jamie’s lawyer believes the public has the right of knowing the context.
Concerning Jamie: Alex M. Weingarten (Jamie’s lawyer) called the investigation that corroborated claims that he had spied upon Britney ‘nonsense’ and added that “virtually every allegation is either fake or out of context”.
Britney’s father and Britney are also fighting over fiduciary and attorney fees. Judge Brenda Penny still hasn’t ruled. Next hearing will be held later this summer.
The hearing came on the heels of a declaration filed by Britney’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart from a former FBI agent Sherine Ebadi who backed assertions that Jamie instructed Black Box Security ‘to place a secret recording device in Ms. Spears’s bedroom,’ E! News reported.
Britney’s attorneys have hired the ex-federal agent to oversee forensic investigations at a private company. He will investigate the troubling allegations made against a former employee of security companies that was charged with taking care of the singer.
Jamie’s lawyer called Ebadi’s comments “false statements” during Wednesday’s hearing [and]Britney’s team was accused of planting the original story in an article by The New York Times.
Britney’s legal team hired an investigator to investigate the claim that Jamie was listening in on her room.
Alex Vlasov (a former Black Box security worker) told Ebadi that Jamie instructed Britney to tape a record decide ‘behind furniture’ so it couldn’t be seen in Britney’s bedroom.
His side of the story: In order to appropriately defend himself against the assertions, Jamie’s lawyer wants sealed information from Britney’s longstanding conservatorship case released wide to ‘demonstrate that there is no evidence to these allegations’
A ‘separate battery pack’ as also allegedly added to the hidden device ‘to permit continuous recording for a longer period of time.’
Ebadi stated in his declaration that ‘communications between Ms. Spears’ and Sam Ingham her court-appointed attorney were included among the private communications Black Box and Mr. Spears watched’.
‘Mr. Vlasov said to me that Mr. Spears was especially interested in the attorney-client communications of his daughter and needed regular updates from Black Box about the content of these privileged messages.
“Surveillance on Ms. Spears’s communications with her attorney continued at least until 2020. [Black Box owner Edan Yemini]I instructed Mr. Vlasov not to review attorney-client privilege communications.
Ebadi declared that her inquiries into the matter “raise criminal implications” for Jamie Spears.
Troubling. The hearing was held following a declaration by Britney’s lawyer Mathew Rosgart, which came from Sherine Elbadi (an ex-FBI agent) who stated that Jamie had instructed Black Box Security to place a secret recording system in Ms. Spears’s room.
Britney’s conservatorship lasted 13 years. Britney said that Jamie, the one who oversaw Britney, “engaged in, and directed others into unconscionable violations of [Britney’s]Page Six reported that privacy and civil rights are important.
An ex-employee at Black Box Security raised the allegations about Jamie Spears spying on his child in Controlling Britney Spears: A New York Times documentary.
Kroll Associates, where Ebadi works as a private consultant, concluded that Black Box had been paid $6 million to perform their services according to new court documents.
Britney’s legal team had Britney’s mansion checked by Kroll Associates for bugs and surveillance cameras after explosive claims were made at the September 2021 end.
Ebadi’s team allegedly used walls, furniture, decorations, doors, vents and ceilings to search for listening devices or hidden surveillance.
Ebadi stated that she spoke to the ex-security employee about his “troubling claims” in the document shortly after its airing on Hulu.
In this declaration, she said that “I confirmed the Times’s report on Mr. Spears’s extensive, surveillance attempts, including Ms. Spears’s attorney-client communication and private conversations within her bedroom,”
Deadline had reported earlier that the FBI was looking into whether or not the law was being broken. Jamie said his daughter did know of the surveillance plans. California law requires that both the parties consent to recording their conversations.
They were done before the November 12th judge actually ended her conservatorship.
Britney’s lawyer stated at the time that the accusations’magnify’ the necessity to suspend Mr. Spears instantly.
Initial claims: The allegations that Jamie Spears spied on his daughter were first raised by a former employee of Black Box Security in a New York Times documentary on the hitmaker, Controlling Britney Spears
‘Mr. In contemporaneous court documents, Spears’ lawyer stated that the singer had crossed “unfathomable” lines. Although they don’t constitute evidence, these allegations merit serious investigation by Ms. Spears, as California, which is, among others, a consent state for ‘two-party’, said the lawyer.
The furious comments were made in reference to an Hulu documentary by the New York Times that detailed surveillance claims.
Alex Vlasov is a former Black Box Security employee who told The New York Times the phone conversations and text messages of Spears were secretly recorded under her 13-year conservatorship. This was overseen by her father.
A lawyer representing Jamie Spears stated to the Times that all of his actions fell within the bounds of authority given him by the court.
Britney was Britney’s court-appointed attorney and/or court. He took his actions with her knowledge and consent. Jamie’s record as conservator — and the court’s approval of his actions — speak for themselves.’
Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears are locked in an ongoing public dispute over Jamie Lynn’s new book, Things I Should Not Have Said. Jamie Lynn was threatened with legal action by Britney’s lawyer if Britney continues to denigrate Britney while she promotes the book.
Family feud: Britney, meanwhile, is locked in a public feud with her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears over the release of Jamie’s new memoir, Things I Should Have Said (seen in 2003)
