‘The Truth Will Come Out’: After Landmark Court Judgment Frees Britney Spears from Being Answerable to Dad, Jamie Spears’ Lawyer Alex Weingarten Grasping at Straws

Britney Spears finally got freedom from her father, Jamie Spears’ conservatorship in the November of 2021, but the whole thing is far from being a closed book yet. The pop star has been trying to move on from that traumatic phase of her life, and personally is in a great place having married her long-time boyfriend Sam Asghari, who also seems to be getting along really well with her sons. Things are finally taking a turn for the better. However, there is still an ongoing conflict between her and her father regarding the attorney’s fees and other costs connected to Spears’ 13-year-long conservatorship.

Jamie Spears can’t “retraumatize” daughter Britney Spears anymore

Regarding the ensuing legal battle, Jamie Spears had asked for permission from the court to depose his daughter, but Judge Brenda Penny ruled on Wednesday, that Britney Spears need not appear for the deposition. The cited reason was that a deposition would probably not produce any relevant information as far as the remaining issues of the case were concerned.

It was further stated by Britney Spears’ lawyer, Mathew Rosengart that a deposition would in fact “retraumatize” his client. He also established that Spears cannot be forced to act as a witness in any kind of evidentiary proceedings in future trials.

Spears’ conservatorship was ordered by the court in 2008, mandating her father to act as her sole conservator for almost 13 years. An array of objections regarding Jamie Spears’ motion for fees in the case and allegations of misconduct while acting as the conservator, were raised by Rosengart, the singer’s lawyer. He said in court, “Whether he accepts it or not, his daughter feels traumatized by what she went through at his hands for more than a decade.” He further added that Jamie Spears would have dropped his motion for a deposition if he truly loved his daughter.

However, Alex Weingarten, Jamie Spears’ lawyer obviously relented, claiming his client’s goodwill and innocence and that he will be vindicated. He said, “Mr. Spears did right by his daughter. The conservatorship was for her benefit…The truth will come out.”

Rosengart shot back, claiming that any “decent man” or “decent father” would simply accept the court’s order and move on, adding that it is “impossible” for Jamie Spears to be vindicated.

Weingarten expressed his vexation regarding the proceeding that scrapped the possibility of deposition with Spears, mentioning how she keeps discussing details and making revelations about the case of her social media accounts. It was also indicated by Jamie Spears’ lawyer that he would appeal the decision where Judge Brenda Penny blocked him from obtaining records of the private investigations firm hired by Spear’s attorneys, Kroll.

It was indicated by Judge Brenda Penny that she aimed to condense the purview of the case to issues specific to the attorney’s cost and fees, excluding the back-and-forth regarding the establishment of the conservatorship and the bullying allegations on Britney Spears’ part. Although, the claims about the singer being secretly surveilled would be an active part of the upcoming trials.

Britney Spears is definitely treading an upward slope as this happens to be the second hearing this month where the judge ruled in her favor. Spears’ request of deposing her father was granted in the previous July hearing on the 13th. Jamie Spears has also been ordered by the judge to present all the documents regarding the secret electronic surveillance by mid-August. The senior Spears has been evading deposition for nine months, according to Rosengart.
