Britney Spears has spoken out in the wake of the latest documentary about her conservatorship, revealing she wants to ‘dissociate herself from the drama’.
The singer took to Instagram after the footage aired, in which it was alleged that her dad, Jamie Spears, covertly monitored the singer during her conservatorship.
In the latest documentary about the case, Controlling Britney Spears, it was alleged that Jamie kept her under ‘secret surveillance’, even recording her in her bedroom and taping conversations with her boyfriend and two sons.
The documentary claims that text messages and other material from her phone were passed to her father while she was under the rule.
Britney took to Instagram to address the film, writing: ‘It’s really crazy guys… I watched a little bit of the last documentary and I must say I scratched my head a couple of times!!!
‘I really try to disassociate myself from the drama !!! Number one … that’s the past !!! Number two … can the dialogue get any classier??? Number three … wow they used the most beautiful footage of me in the world!! What can I say .. the EFFORT on their part!!!’
She alluded to her mysterious ‘rose project’ as she continued: ‘Wow … since it’s such a kind world I will say The Rose Project did stick and I will tell you why … do you think things happen for a reason or by chance ??? The Rose Project – MY ROSE PROJECT – made me a believer !!!
‘The day I first posted The Rose Project a random red rose beaded bracelet showed up at my door and I never even ordered it !!! Nobody in the world knew about it except for me !!! I will never forget that day !!! I have the original Rose!!! Yes the one that kissed @Madonna and the one who has social anxiety !!! Pssss wearing WHITE for NEW BEGINNINGS.’
Britney’s legal team have also spoken out after the allegations surfaced, saying Jamie, 69, crossed ‘unfathomable lines’ while he was co-conservator of her estate.
In a new legal filing on Monday, lawyers for Britney, 39, said the claims require ‘serious investigation’, suggesting state law over the recording of private conversations may have been breached.
The filing states, per The Guardian: ‘Mr Spears has crossed unfathomable lines. While they are not evidence, the allegations warrant serious investigation, certainly by Ms Spears as, among other things, California is a ‘two-party’ consent state.’
The new documentary, which is a follow-up to Framing Britney Spears, also alleges that undercover operatives were made to monitor the Free Britney movement, which was campaigning for the end of the conservatorship.
Britney has been under the rule since 2008 following a public breakdown a year earlier, but recently spoke out in court to ask for it to be lifted, allowing her to regain control over her personal and financial decisions.
She had claimed that the conservatorship restricted every aspect of her life, from not being allowed to be driven in a car by her boyfriend Sam Asghari, to reportedly being forced to keep an IUD in her body to stop her having any more children.
The next hearing in the case is due to take place on Wednesday, when a judge will consider Britney’s request to have her father removed from her conservatorship entirely, at the singer’s request.Credit: Original article published here.
