Britney Spearsestranged father, Jamie Spearshas denied eavesdropping on her bedroom while serving as her conservator.

“I am aware of the allegation… that an eavesdropping device or ‘bug’ has been placed [in] [Britney’s] bedroom as a guard during the conservatory. This claim is false,” Jamie says in court documents obtained by page six†
“I never supervised Britney’s bedroom, not even during the conservatory,” he says. “I am not aware of any such supervision.”
Jamie also says “under penalty of perjury” that “if called and sworn as a witness”, he “could and will testify” that his statement is “true and correct”.
In The New York Times Presents: Controlling Britney Spears documentary that premiered in September 2021, a former security guard claimed that Jamie had secretly recorded over 180 hours of audio recordings of Britney in her bedroom.

According to the documentary, these images contain conversations the ‘Toxic’ singer had with her children. Jamie is also said to have checked the star’s text messages, calls and internet history on her phone.
The whistleblower was named as Alex Vlasov.
Vlasov runs security company Black Box Security and was hired by Jamie to “protect” Britney during her conservatory.
His company provided alleged recordings, emails and texts to the Time, which appeared to be evidence of Jamie’s control. They called security “an intense surveillance device” in their front page report published in September†
Jamie’s attorney at the time, Vivian Lee Thoreen, said in the documentary that the father’s actions “were done with the knowledge and consent of Britney, her court-appointed attorney and/or the court.”
Notably, Thoreen did not deny Vlasov’s claims.
Jamie also did not deny the allegations that he had mirrored Britney’s phone in his statement this week.
Meanwhile, in January, Britney’s now-attorney, Mathew Rosengart, engaged former FBI Special Agent Sherine Ebadi. in to investigate newspaper coverage.
Ebadi, who was part of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, has called Vlasov a “highly credible witness” after questioning him personally. page six†
Ebadi concluded that Jamie had “engaged and directed others to engage in unscrupulous violations of” [Britney’s] privacy and civil liberties.”

She also stated in a statement in court: “[Jamie] used his role as Conservator to enrich himself and those loyal or useful to him, often at the expense and against the interests of his own daughter, whose property, welfare and interests he was supposed to protect.”
For most of this year, both Britney and Jamie’s lawyers have accused each other of dodging statements regarding the conservatory, with allegations aired just this week.
Jamie’s current attorney, Alex Weingarten, recently accused Britney of making “incendiary accusations” about her father on social media, which warrant testimony from the singer to justify her comments.
Weingarten’s phone calls yielded a fiery response from Britney’s attorney, Rosengart.
“In addition to trying to bully his own daughter, he has now been pathetically reduced to trying to intimidate her, abusing the legal process and running away and hiding from his own statement,” he said. page six†
