Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, claims she’s gone on a social media marketing campaign to trash him and needs her to reply for it in a deposition, in keeping with court docket paperwork obtained by Page Six on Friday.
The former conservator’s legal professional, Alex Weingarten, writes within the June 16 submitting that the pop icon, 40, “continues to make public social media posts containing incendiary allegations of various factual matters,” and due to this fact must be pressured to take a seat down for a deposition herself.
Weingarten provides that he would additionally prefer to depose Britney over statements her legal professional, Matthew Rosengart, has made in public court docket filings and her personal phrases in her June 23, 2021 and July 14, 2021 testimonies.
However, Rosengart instructed Page Six Friday that Jamie, 69, “impugned” his character “long ago.”
“Mr. Spears, who was ignominiously suspended by the Court in September, continues to disgrace himself, especially through this most-recent foolish and ill-advised filing, which is riddled with errors and falsehoods, as he himself knows,” the previous federal prosecutor stated.
“In addition to trying to bully his own daughter, he is now pathetically reduced to trying to intimidate her, while abusing the legal process and running and hiding from his own deposition. Anyone else would be ashamed by these tactics, but he and his representatives are truly shameless. In terms of ‘impugning his character,’ Mr. Spears did that to himself long ago.”
Both sides have been unable to efficiently schedule a deposition, claiming that the opposite get together is dodging their respective requests.
In May, Rosengart claimed in court docket paperwork obtained by Page Six that Jamie was “running and hiding from his deposition and accounting for his misconduct — under oath — as required by law.”
However, in Weingarten’s newest submitting, he gives a duplicate of an e mail despatched on Jan. 26, 2022, through which the legal professional instructed Rosengart’s agency that Jamie would conform to be deposed if they may choose a date to depose Britney that very same week.
“Ideally, we would agree to conduct these depositions in early March, with them either occurring on consecutive days or at least the same week,” he added.
Rosengart responded on March 2, 2022, rejecting Weingarten’s request to depose Britney, noting that they “seek to continue to protect our client from further trauma and abuse.”
“While the deposition of James Spears is warranted, indeed necessary, there is no
legitimate, good faith basis for taking the deposition of Britney Spears,” the previous federal prosecutor argued.
“To the contrary, your client’s stated ‘intention’ to take our client’s deposition is, in our view and under the law, but another tactic to bully, harass, and intimidate his daughter—his own daughter.”
Jamie’s legal professional argued Thursday that as a result of Britney’s counsel has “refused to provide dates for Britney’s deposition and repeatedly stated Britney will not sit for a deposition absent a court order (and perhaps not even then),” they’re asking the Court to intervene.
Then, on Nov. 12, 2021, Judge Brenda Penny of the Los Angeles County Superior Court dominated to terminate the “Toxic” singer’s conservatorship.
Since she’s obtained full management of her life, she has turned to social media to air out her grievances with Jamie and different members of her household.
In March, Britney claimed she as soon as thought-about getting a boob job after her dad allegedly “body-shamed” her and in addition stated he “stripped” her of her womanhood when he turned her conservator.
