Jamie Spears has been accused of bugging his daughter Britney Spears’ bedroom. Now he’s fighting back.
Jamie Spears, 69, has denied allegations that he bugged his daughter Britney Spears, 40,’s bedroom. In an affidavit to the Supreme Court in Los Angeles, Spears addresses the allegation made by the Hulu and FX documentary The New York Times Presents: Controlling Britney Spears. “I have been informed of Britney’s attorney’s allegation that a tape recorder or bug was placed in her bedroom for surveillance while she was in custody. This allegation is false,” People magazine quoted the letter as saying.
Jamie Spears is ‘not aware of any such surveillance’
“I have never administered or authorized surveillance of Britney’s bedroom at any time, including during her guardianship. I am not aware of any such surveillance,” the statement continued.
In the said documentary, which was released a few days before Jamie Spears was removed from his daughter’s guardianship, a former employee of a security firm claimed that he had been monitoring the pop musician on Spears’ behalf. The company is said to have recorded the 40-year-old’s conversations with her husband Sam Asghari (28), their children and their lawyers. The recordings were then forwarded to Jamie Spears and Britney’s former manager Robin Greenhill.
Both the security company’s board of directors and Greenhill have already denied the allegations.
