Britney Spears, allegedly, rolled her eyes when she heard her dad Jamie Spears’ recent statement.
According to Life & Style, Britney Spears isn’t convinced that her dad has her best intentions at heart.
“It’s obvious to her and everyone else that now that he can’t control her directly, he’s trying to manipulate her through the media. It’s sad, really,” the source said.
Jamie Spears declares his love for Britney Spears
During an interview, Jamie declared his love for his daughter.
“I love my daughter and I miss her very much. When a family member needs special care and protection, families need to step up as I have done for the last 12 plus years, to safeguard, protect, and continue to love Britney unconditionally. I have and will continue to provide unwavering love and fierce protection against those with self-serving interests and those who seek to harm her or my family,” he said.
Jamie Spears hasn’t spoken to his daughter in years
However, Spears’ legal team previously said that the singer is afraid of her dad.
In November, the “Toxic” singer lost her legal battle to remove her dad’s control over her estate.
Following the rule, Spears’ lawyer, Samuel Smith said that the singer and her dad have no viable working relationship and have not spoken in a long while.
But Jamie’s lawyer, Vivian Thoreen argued that this is because the singer was advised by her legal team to stop all communications with her dad.
Britney Spears finances controlled by her dad
According to the BBC, Spears has not controlled her financial affairs for many years since 2008 under the court-enacted agreement called conservatorship.
A conservatorship was granted to Spears amid claims that she cannot make decisions due to her mental state.
Since the singer’s dad has been controlling her finances and other decisions, fans of the singer started the #FreeBritney movement because they were convinced that she’s being held prisoner against her will.
The singer breaks her silence
However, Britney Spears recently released a video around that time where she told her fans that she’s doing fine.
“I know that there have been a lot of comments and a lot of people saying a lot of different things about me, but I just want to let you guys know that I am fine. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life,” Britney Spears said.
