Britney Spears' lawyer demands Jamie admit he spied with 'recording' devices in her bedroom


Britney Spears’ attorney Mathew Rosengart is going on the offensive against her father Jamie Spears and demanding he provide documents admitted he spied on the popstar in her bedroom via listening devices.

Rosengart filed legal documents in her ongoing conservatorship case asking for ‘all documents and communications relating to any recording or listening device in the home or bedroom of Britney Jean Spears,’ according to a report from TMZ on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old pop icon’s legal team also accused Jamie, who recently relinquished his role as her conservator, of changing his tune to support dissolving the conservatorship as a way to protect ‘his reputation.’

According to a new legal filing, Rosengart has requested from Jamie ‘all documents and communications relating to any recording or listening device in the home or bedroom of Britney Jean Spears, including all documents and communications relating to the decision to place any such recording or listening device and the records of any such recording.’ 

He made the same request for anything relating to ‘electronic surveillance, monitoring, cloning, or recording of the activity’ of the singer, including ‘surveillance, monitoring, cloning, icloud mirroring, or recording of calls, emails, text messages, internet browser use or history, and social media use or direct messages on social media.’  

Britney’s legal team had intended to depose her father and security manager over the alleged monitored and recorded the pop princess in her bedroom, a source previously told DailyMail.com. 

In these latest legal documents, Rosengart made it clear that he felt Jamie was trying to avoid having to discuss such things under oath in an effort to protect his own reputation.

‘It is of no moment, presently, whether Mr. Spears’s reversal was motivated by a desire to bolster his reputation or to avoid his deposition or responding to the outstanding discovery served on him in August,’ Rosengart said, referencing Jamie Spears sudden support of eliminating the conservatorship.  

The legal wrangling in Britney’s conservatorship case was recently ratcheted up a notch after a security manager hired by her father confessed in a New York Times documentary to the shocking snooping, which he says was conducted on Jamie’s orders.

Jamie’s lawyer told the Times all actions were ‘well within the parameters of the authority conferred upon him by the court.’

The documentary’s claims were the second of a devastating one-two punch to Britney’s father, who was stripped of his conservatorship with immediate effect in a September 29 ruling by a Los Angeles judge after months of legal arguments by Rosengart to kick him from his role.

Last week, Jamie was reportedly dropped as a client by the his law firm, Holland & Knight, which represented Jamie for years during his daughter’s conservatorship case.

‘Litigator Mathew Rosengart has asserted numerous times that he is going to investigate and sue Jamie,’ a source close to the situation told Page Six on Wednesday. ‘If/when he does, Jamie will need to defend and likely be adverse to parties in the conservatorship.’   

Jamie’s lead counsel, Vivian Lee Thoreen, reportedly told her client he’ll ‘need a different litigator and that she and H&K weren’t interested in that role.’ He then allegedly ‘authorized’ Thoreen to ‘help him find a strong litigator.’  

Documents obtained by NBC showed that Alex Weingarten, a partner in the litigation department at Willkie Farr & Gallagher accepted the new role.

‘Jamie is pleased with the work done by H&K,’ a source told us. ‘He and Vivian remain in close touch during the transition.’ 

Another source said that a ‘suspended conservator’ – which is what Jamie is – ‘puts all [H&K’s] fees even more at stake.’ 

‘They don’t want to fund this anymore because when you represent a suspended conservator it makes it much more likely that fees you’ve already obtained could be disgorged and future fees may not be paid from the estate, but rather would have to be paid from Jamie,’ the source explained. 

‘When Britney’s lawyer did not file to terminate after multiple hearings at which Britney pleaded with the court to terminate the conservatorship, it was her father Jamie who stepped up and filed to terminate in support his daughter’s wishes,’ the insider claimed. 

In June, Spears gave an emotional, 23-minute testimony during a hearing in a Los Angeles court where she pleaded with Judge Brenda Penny for freedom by ending the 13-year conservatorship she’s been under where her father, Jamie, has held the power over all of her personal and financial decisions following her multiple involuntary holds in psychiatric hospitals.

In the shocking testimony, Britney admitted: ‘I’ve lied and told the whole world I’m OK and I’m happy. It’s a lie. I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized. Fake it ’til you make it, but now I’m telling you the truth, OK? I’m not happy. I can’t sleep. I’m depressed. I cry every day.’ 

Spears said she did not feel she ‘was heard on any level’ the last time she was able to speak to the court in 2019.

‘I want changes and I want changes going forward,’ she said. ‘I deserve changes. I was told I have to sit down and be evaluated, again, if I want to end the conservatorship. Ma’am, I didn’t know I could petition the conservatorship to end it.

‘This conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life, I’ve worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three-year break.’ 

And one of Britney’s wishes was granted at the end of September when Jamie was suspended from the conservatorship, considered a huge legal win for the popstar in her quest for freedom.
