Britney Spears’ dad has had enough of you #FreeBritney supporters sullying his good name — and he’s coming for the mover and hash-tagger who started it all.
According to TMZ, Jamie Spears is suing on behalf of his daughter’s conservatorship, accusing Anthony Elia, the creator of the popular Absolute Britney blog, of defaming him and the rest of Brit’s team by making allegedly false claims about them on social media.
Elia has been one of the most vocal #FreeBritney protestors over the past few months, notably accusing the conservatorship of manipulating the pop icon’s Instagram account to make it seem like she needs help.
As for the specific claims that Britney isn’t allowed to drive or use a personal cell phone, the sources say that’s simply not true; arguing that there are photos of her in her car and using her phone that disprove those rumors.
Of course, Britney does have some restrictions under her conservatorship, which Jamie recently requested to be enforced in the state of Louisiana: the songstress must must travel with a security escort at all times and is prohibited from going in places like liquor stores.
Other more serious allegations that galvanized the #FreeBritney movement were reportedly said by Brit herself to be true — like the fact that she was involuntarily checked into a mental health facility back in April and held there against her will.
But the mother-of-two has since made it clear that she calls the shots when it comes to the videos she posts on her IG page, so it sounds like this lawsuit is mostly about that.
The suit was filed by celeb attorney Larry Stein on behalf of Jamie, as the conservator of the Britney Spears Estate.
