Britney Spears’ father Jamie is said to have said he had court support

Britney Spears claimed that her father, Jamie Spears, bragged about having the Los Angeles justice system on his side amid their controversial squabbles over her conservatorship.

In a great audio clip posted briefly to her YouTube on Sunday, the 40-year-old “Hold Me Closer” singer claimed that when she was forced into a mental health facility in early 2019, it was one of the first times she’d ever stood up for herself.

“I never wanted to go there,” Britney said. “I was like, ‘Why are you doing this?'”

The pop superstar then claimed her father, 70, told her, “Now you don’t have to go, but if you don’t go, we’re going to court and you’re going to lose.

“’I have a lot more people on my side. You don’t even have a lawyer, so don’t even think about it.’”

Britney was in a conservatory — with Jamie as one of her conservators — from 2008 to 2021, and for most of those 13 years, the “Overprotected” singer had a court-appointed attorney named Samuel D. Ingham III.

In the audio clip, Britney also shared how she was trying to get new legal representation.

“Every time I contacted a company, my phone was tapped and my phone was taken from me,” she claimed.

In the months leading up to getting the Grammy winner in November 2021, Ingham’s apparent ineptitude became more apparent to the public.

During an explosive hearing in June 2021, the “Toxic” singer told the court: “I didn’t know I could petition to end the conservatory. I honestly didn’t know that.” About a week later, Ingham resigned because he was reportedly “upset” over Britney’s claims.

Then, by a landmark ruling in July 2021, Britney was allowed to choose her own lawyer. She then retained former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart to oversee her case — and Jamie was suspended as conservator just two months later.

Jamie’s current lawyer, Alex Weingarten, did not immediately respond to Vidak For Congress’s request for comment on Britney’s claims in the audio clip that her father was allegedly showing off how much influence he had over the justice system.

Meanwhile, Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears, has spoken out to silence her daughter’s claims that she didn’t try to help her get out of the conservatory.

“Britney, all your life I have done my best to support your dreams and wishes!” the Rodan and Fields consultant, 67, wrote on Instagram on Sunday alongside an old black-and-white photo of her and Britney laughing together.

“And also, I did my best to get you out of trouble! I have and will never turn my back on you!”

Britney didn’t address her mother directly, but instead tweeted a video of himself dancing to Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” and captioning: “Life goes on 💐 !!! In rare cases, something can be sought, something that makes us want to move on.”
