A Los Angeles judge ruled on Wednesday that Britney Spears will not sit before her father’s so-called “revenge deposition.”
Judge Brenda Penny adhered to her initial order at an afternoon hearing and avoided the “Toxic” singer after Britney’s attorney Matthew Rosengart argued that a personal questioning by Jimmy Spears’ attorney would leave his client “shocked again.”
In her court ruling, the judge said the pop star “likely lacked” any knowledge of her father’s contested behavior, including his alleged spying, which could not be obtained through “alternative, less stressful means.”
“For example, the subject of surveillance falls within the scope of a pending petition challenging payments related to unauthorized surveillance, however, Mr. Spears is likely to receive the same responses and possibly other responses through other means of discovery,” Judge Penny said. .
Jamie sought the removal of his superstar daughter over the “unsupportive allegations” made against him while Britney was fighting his December 15, 2021 petition for more money from her estate to cover his legal fees. At a hearing two weeks ago, Rosengart called the effort a “retaliatory nomination,” arguing that his client had no first-hand knowledge of her father’s alleged crimes because she remained in the dark during the nearly 14-year guardianship that ended last November.
Judge Penny did not immediately rule on Rosengart’s pending requests to fire Tree Star executives Robin Greenhill and Lou Taylor.
Greenhill and Taylor have been fighting subpoenas from Britney’s attorney for nearly a year. According to Rosengart, Taylor was working in full swing with Jamie in 2008 when he first started keeping controversial Britney. The attorney claims evidence shows that Tri-Star unfairly enriched herself with money from Britney’s estate, making more than $18 million in an alleged girlfriend deal, and that Greenhill participated in an attempt to control the star by monitoring her private communications.
Rosengart focused on Greenhill after she was singled out for impressive comments made by former Spears security employee Alex Vlasov at The New York Times documentary Take control of Britney Spears.
According to Vlasov, Greenhill has already proposed a plan to “reverse” Britney’s iCloud account to keep tabs on her text messages, notes, call logs, browser history, and photos. He said that Jamie Spears and Greenhill were in a group chat with his boss, Aidan Yemini, head of Black Box security, and followed Britney’s personal life.
“Aidan was bringing me Britney’s text messages, and he was asking me to encrypt these messages and give them to him so he could pass them on to Robin and Jimmy,” Vlasov said. “They were also observing conversations with her friends, with her mother, and her lawyer, Sam Ingham.”
Vlasov claimed that at one point, my right-winger “had put a tape recorder in Britney’s bedroom.”
In the sworn statement on November 4 accompanying her request to rescind the subpoenas, Greenhill claimed “no one in the Tri Star has ever suggested monitoring Ms. Spears’ electronic communications.” She also denied any knowledge of a “hidden electronic surveillance device placed in Mrs. Spears’ bedroom”. She and Taylor suggested Rosengart’s request for 14-year-old recordings was “significantly exaggerated” because Tri Star was not involved in Britney’s career or creation of preservation in early February 2008.
“Tree Star played absolutely no role in proposing the establishment of the county,” Greenhill wrote.
According to Rosengart and his assistant attorney Kyle Freene, Greenhill’s statements were false. In a statement released on July 1, Freeney told the court that Black Box produced Word documents containing screenshots of Britney’s text messages, and that Yemini shared the texts with Jamie and Greenhill via email between 2016 and 2019.
The attorneys also provided the court with a January 1, 2008 email that Jimmy’s attorney Geraldine Wele sent to Taylor to discuss the best time to file a guardianship file.
“Lo, we have had trouble choosing a judge – the only judge who will be able to hear our case on Friday is the judge [judge] Which wouldn’t give Jimmy the authority to administer B’s psychotropics. The first time you leave the bench is Wednesday. Weil wrote in the email a month before Britney was granted guardianship. “If we went earlier, it could be all this work for almost nothing.”
In a subsequent email to Jamie Spears on January 17, 2008, Taylor wrote that she had already spoken to others about Andrew Walt, the man who eventually became Jamie’s assistant. “He and Triple Star will act as partners with you,” Taylor wrote, meaning her company will join Wallet as another co-custodian. This never happened.
“Tri Star’s internal emails – obtained from a third party – show that Lou Taylor of Tri Star played a substantive role in Ms. Spears’ affairs before and in the early days of the regency,” Rosengart told the court in a July 1 filing.
Lawyers for Tri Star and Greenhill responded that Taylor’s emails as well as alleged documents from the black box had not been verified and amounted to hearsay.
