Britney Spears may have deactivated her Instagram account to be in the moment and enjoy her life as a newlywed with husband Sam Asghari…or it might be part of her ongoing legal battle with her dad, Jamie Spears.
For over a decade, Spears’s formerly estranged father was her conservator, a position that, according to Britney’s allegations, he used to abuse and exploit his daughter. The elder Spears was eventually removed from the role before a judge ended Britney’s conservatorship altogether, but it seems that Jamie is now disputing Britney’s version of what happened when the conservatorship was in place.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Jamie, through his lawyer, wants to depose Britney (have her answer questions under oath) over claims that she was forced to give eight tubes of blood for unspecified medical treatments, that she was not allowed to own pain-relieving medication, and that she was forced to participate in therapy against her will. The documents point to Britney Spears’s ongoing posts about her family’s complicity and her upcoming memoir.
The therapy issue was raised during Britney’s emotional court testimony in 2021. At various times, she pointed to the fact that twice-a-week sessions were emotionally taxing for her; that she preferred to have sessions in her home as opposed to the office she was directed to; that she did not want to open up to people (especially men) she didn’t know or trust; and ultimately, that therapy was not her preferred method of healing. “I don’t owe them to go see a man I don’t know and share him my problems,” she said. “I don’t even believe in therapy. I always think you take it to God.”
Britney expanded on other claims and allegations via social media posts, which is why it is notable that her Instagram account, which she typically updates frequently, is currently offline. However, this has happened before. In September 2021 she took a social media break to enjoy her engagement to Asghari; given that they recently tied the knot, maybe she’s just on honeymoon!
Meanwhile, in legal land, Jamie’s lawyer and Britney’s lawyer are each saying that the other’s client is dodging deposition requests, per TMZ.
Jamie Spears, you drive me crazy! You’re toxic!
