In a testimony in court, Britney alleged that Jamie assisted her in being given lithium and monitored by nurses in her home after she said no to a Las Vegas residency. “Not only did my family do nothing, my father was for it,” Britney testified. “Everything that happened to me had to be approved by my father.”

Speaking to CNN in March, Jamie’s attorney said, “Jamie does not claim that he is the perfect father or that he would receive a Father of the Year award. Like all parents, he doesn’t always agree. Open your eyes to what Britney wants. But Jamie believes every single decision he made was in their best interests. “

And in a petition filed in Los Angeles on June 29 and submitted by E! News, Jamie said he was “concerned about the administration and care of his daughter” and noted that he had not managed her personal or medical affairs for the past two years. “Mr. Spears is seeking instructions and an order from the court to investigate the veracity of Ms. Spears’ allegations and allegations at the status hearing on June 23, 2021,” Jamie’s file said.
