A lot has been said of late about Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, overseeing her conservatorship, including all of the singer's finances, estate, career and other aspects of her personal and professional life. His lawyer has now publicly come forth in his defence, dismissing all his critics as a group who “have it so wrong”. His statements are in stark contrast to that of Britney Spears' herself, who had recently confessed to a Los Angeles court that she was “afraid of her father” and would “not resume her career while he controlled it”.
While appearing on the talk show, Good Morning America, Jamie Spears' lawyer, Vivian Thoreen, addressed the legal allegations against him as well as the continuing #FreeBritney movement, initiated to return control of Britney Spears' finances and other assets to her. “I understand that every story needs a villain, but people have it so wrong here. This is a story about a fiercely loving, dedicated and loyal father, who rescued his daughter from a life-threatening situation. People were harming her and they were exploiting her. Jamie saved Britney’s life. Britney’s assets were clearly being mismanaged and she was being taken advantage of financially by some of those around her,” said Vivian Thoreen.
“He has collaborated with her to help her regain custody of her children. He has brought her finances back from disaster. And he’s created a safe environment for her to live her life the way she wants, away from the media that cause her so much pain. Early on in the pandemic, they spent two weeks with other family members, hunkered down in Louisiana, and they spent a lot of time together. Britney and Jamie went on long drives together. They played and worked in the family garden. And every night, Jamie cooked Southern comfort food that the family ate and enjoyed together. In that time, Britney never expressed those words to her father. She’s never asked him to step aside,” he added.
So, is this a case of a loving father protecting his daughter or as Britney Spears claims — a manipulative and emotionally abusive parent controlling his daughter's life? Time alone will tell.
