Against the request that the singer’s father made during the trial in which the artist denounced being “exploited by her family”, Britney Spears will not have to testify again due to the trauma she still suffers after everything she experienced during the 14 years that legal guardianship lasted. It is what has been determined by the judge of the Court of Los Angeles, Brenda Penny, who was already in charge of supervising the entire legal process by which last fall the guardianship of the singer held by her father, Jamie Spears, ended.
For his part, Mathew Rosengart, the pop star’s lawyer, assures that having to answer questions related to the case would do nothing but re-traumatize her, as reported by Eph.
The case is still ongoing today, now with investigating his father’s accounts which, according to Rosengart, could have won up to six million dollars fraudulently. During the hearing in which the guardianship was terminated, the interpreter’s lawyer claimed to be convinced that Jamie and various businessmen and lawyers took advantage of the legal situation to enrich themselves with Britney’s success, subjecting her to tight control in the that the singer lacked access to her accounts and had no power to decide on her own projects.
The case has taken a new turn after ‘The New York Times’ published a report with testimonies from three people who had worked for the singer. In the, the workers stated that Jamie, in addition to placing microphones in Britney’s house, intercepted her messages and calls, including communications with her own lawyer.
The California justice, which apparently was completely unaware of these practices, has forced the father to deliver a declaration and all the documentation that concerns the guardianship before next August 12, in order to clarify all the facts.
Also called to testify are his former representative, Lou Taylor, and his partner Robin Greenhill, both suspected of signing juicy contracts against the will of the artist to enter more money.
For its part, the parent’s defense requested that Spears testify for the accusations made publicly against his client, something to which the judge did not agree.
