Watch what you write, bloggers! Britney Spears' dad Jamie is taking the #FreeBritney accusations seriously and he's even filed suit against one web site that allegedly defamed him as conservator of Britney's estate, claiming Brit is being controlled against her will.
The suit claims Absolute Britney web site owner Anthony Elia made false
and malicious claims that Jamie and his conservatorship controlled
Britney's Instagram account to make her seem less stable and more in
need of psychiatric help than she actually is, according to Fox News.
"It is time for the conspiracy theories about Britney Spears' well-being
and the mob #FreeBritney movement to stop," the lawsuit says in its
Elia's blog and social media accounts launched the #FreeBritney campaign
with numerous conspiracy theories about Brit being held against her
will and about her Instagram account being controlled by the
conservatorship (aka, Jamie). The suit claims Elia "has made it his
mission to spread false and malicious lies on the internet about
Britney, her conservatorship and her team, including that those around
Britney are harming her and not acting in her best interests."
Beyond these legal issues, Jamie, as conservator, has reportedly
received death threats. Sources say followers of the #FreeBritney
movement have taken so seriously the conspiracy theories that Brit is
being held against her will that they've threatened Jamie's life. Law
enforcement has gotten involved.
Meanwhile, the conservatorship was granted an extension on the
restraining order against Brit's former manager/friend Sam Lutfi for
another five years.
Can you imagine how much they're spending on lawyers!
