Britney Spears is afraid of her father Jamie Spears, according to the singer’s lawyer.
The accusation was revealed in court on Tuesday, Nov. 10, during the ongoing fight over her conservatorship.
Attorney Samuel D. Ingham III claimed that Britney was scared of her dad and would not perform as long as controls her career, Us Weekly reported. The lawyer also said Britney, 38, and Jamie, 68, haven’t talked for a while, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Jamie has been in charge of Britney’s medical and financial plans after her widely-publicized breakdown in 2007. In recent years, fans have rallied behind the #FreeBritney movement to give her more power over her career and change the conservatorship. Her dad called the movement a “joke.”
