Britney Spears’ father wants a judge to force his daughter to sit for a deposition over claims she made about him on social media, court documents filed by Jamie Spears show.
Court documents first reported on by TMZ and obtained by Insider show Jamie Spears wants to challenge claims made by his daughter on Instagram since she has been freed from her conservatorship.
Though Spears’ Instagram has since been deleted, the court documents claim that she’s posted about being forced to “give eight tubes of blood for medical treatment” and to go to therapy. It also states that she claims to not have allowed access to pain-relieving medication to help alleviate her pain.
Spears had also posted – and then deleted – Wednesday that she was barred from drinking alcohol throughout her conservatorship.
The court documents also take issue with
“There is no legitimate basis for Britney’s counsel to refuse Britney’s deposition,” lawyers for Jamie Spears say in court documents. “Britney must testify regarding her verified and public allegations against Jamie.”
Spears was placed in a conservatorship, or a legal guardianship, in 2008 after two involuntary psychiatric hospital stays.
In November 2021, Spears was completely released from the conservatorship in which her father controlled her estate. She referred to the conservatorship as “abusive” and traumatic.
Britney Spears’ lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, and Jamie Spears’ lawyers, Alex M. Weingarten and Eric J. Bakewell, did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
