Britney Spears dad slams FreeBritney campaign

  Britney Spears dad slams FreeBritney campaign Jamie Spears - who used to be conservator of his daughter Britney's estate - has slammed the movement to free her from her conservatorship and branded the campaign a "joke".The 38-year-old singer has been under a conservatorship since her highly-publicised meltdown in 2008, and fans have in recent years created an online movement campaigning for her to be put back in charge of her own affairs.

For well over a year, a throng of Britney Spears fans have aggressively vocalized their theory that the pop star is essentially being held hostage by her father and the conservatorship that's guided her life for the last 12 years. Now, Britney's dad is breaking his silence about the #FreeBritney movement, calling it "a joke."

"All these conspiracy theorists don't know anything. The world don't have a clue," Jamie Spears told the New York Post's Page Six. "It's up to the court of California to decide what's best for my daughter. It's no one else's business."

Taryn Manning: Britney is treated unfairly

The 'Orange Is The New Black' actress was in front of the camera together with the 'Toxic' interpreter for the film 'Not a Girl' from 2002. Since 2008, after suffering a public mental breakdown, Brit has been largely under the tutelage of her father Jamie Spears, who passed it on to Jodi Montgomery a year ago due to health problems.

Fans, though, have made it their business, flooding Britney's Instagram with supportive comments. Many are convinced that Britney is covertly sending signals on Instagram to indicate that she's being held captive. Many fans, Jamie said, have taken it too far.

"People are being stalked and targeted with death threats," he said. "It's horrible. We don't want those kinds of fans."

"I love my daughter," Jamie continued. "I love all my kids. But this is our business. It's private."

Since the #FreeBritney movement began, rumors have abounded that Jamie skims money from his daughter, a notion that he vehemently denies, stating, "I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year."

Why Did Kanye West's Presidential Announcement Lead To #FreeBritney Trending?

  Why Did Kanye West's Presidential Announcement Lead To #FreeBritney Trending? There's debate surrounding gender and mental health treatment in the US.Kanye, who was hospitalised in 2016 due to a psychiatric emergency, announced his bid for president this weekend - with support from wife Kim Kardashian and Tesla founder Elon Musk. 'We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION,' he wrote on Twitter. It is unclear if West has filed any official paperwork to appear on state election ballots this year or which political party he would be running for.

Adam Streisand, a lawyer who briefly represented Britney in 2008, told The Post, "Jamie's a weird guy, he's a control freak, but I don't see him as some sort of criminal mastermind in this."

There's also been unsubstantiated rumors that Jamie pays Britney's boyfriends to date her, someone an ex laughs at.

"Not [true] in any way, shape or form," Charlie Ebersol, who dated Britney for eight months in 2015, said.

The much-maligned conservatorship was set up after Britney's public mental breakdown in 2008. Last year, Britney reportedly told a judge that she wanted to be free of the constraints of the conservatorship. Britney's bother, Bryan Spears, said the "Toxic" singer has "always wanted to get out" of the conservatorship. Still, the conservatorship has been "a great thing for our family," he recently said on As Not Seen on TV podcast.

Lately, the #FreeBritney movement has been gaining steam. Even several celebrities have voiced their support of Britney and criticized the conservatorship. However, sources close to Britney indicate she's well aware of what's going on and hardly a prisoner.

Additionally, there are those out there who say the #FreeBritney movement has actually been a good thing for her career.

"Whatever is or is not wrong with her, the #FreeBritney movement is making her relevant at a time when a lot of pop stars [from the early 2000s] are aging out of the public eye," veteran music producer Ed Steinberg told The Post. "Her management, her label and Britney herself aren't stupid. They may not have started the movement but they're benefiting from it."
