An investigation against father of world famous singer Britney Spears has reportedly started as he had been claimed for conducting spying towards the pop star by secretly having control over her communications and recording her messages and talks.


The New York Times has issued its new documentary related to the singer's case, called Controlling Britney Spears, in which Jamie Spears was claimed to fulfill a surveillance to collect the records of Britney’s calls and messages, as well as quietly recorded all her interactions from the bedroom.

Britney’s lawyer condemned such a behaviour accusing her father of “horrifying and unconscionable invasions of his adult daughter’s privacy,” also calling for his instant removal from the conservatorship.

Her father, Jamie Spears, responded by saying that his daughter was aware about the recordings. According to Deadline, the FBI is looking for proof whether Jamie Spears violated California law, which bans the secret surveillance in case any of the parties doesn’t express consent to being recorded. 

The “Oops, i did it again” signer’s counsel said on Monday, that the released documentary did not contain any undeniable proof, however, the accusations “warrant serious investigation,” especially according to the California “two-party consent state.”

“As a result of these deeply-disturbing allegations, Mr. Spears will inevitably be focused over the next several days and weeks on defending his own interests, not his daughter’s (yet again). And regardless of the outcome of the allegations, what cannot be genuinely disputed is how deeply upsetting they are to Ms. Spears and if nothing else, they magnify the need to suspend Mr. Spears immediately.”

Britney Spears has been suffering from the conservatorship imposed by her father for several years, since 2008, blaming it for extreme disturbance of her personal life, also calling it abusive.  

Currently, Britney Spears is in a suing process against her father. She demands to terminate the conservatorship and be freed of its destructive rules. Recently, billionaire Elon Musk supported the singer by posting a “Free Britney” message on Twitter. The next hearing regarding this case is scheduled on September 29.
