Pop singer Britney Spears told her lawyer her father reportedly threatened to take her children away from her in bombshell Netflix tapes.
The Toxic singer’s distressing calls about the legal proceedings her father Jamie threatened her with will air in Britney Vs. Spears, a Netflix documentary.
The star can be heard making frantic phone calls to her lawyers.
Britney VS. Sppears will provide new information about the battle of conservatorship imposed on Britney after she had suffered public breakdowns in 2008.
In one voicemail from 2009, a year after the order was put in place, Britney leaves a message for her lawyer regarding her sons Sean Preston, then aged three, and Jayden James, two.
She says: “I called you earlier. I’m calling again because I just wanted to make sure that, during the process of eliminating the conservatorship, that my father has threatened me several times, that, you know, he’ll take my children away.”
She adds: “I just want to be guaranteed that everything will be fine with the process and that you guys are taking care of everything, that things will stay the same as far as my custodial time. That’s it, bye.”
At the time, she and her dancer ex-husband Kevin Federline had shared custody.
However, in 2019, Britney’s share was cut to 30%, with Federline’s lawyer saying it was “what Kevin believes is in the children’s best interest”.
Jamie Spears was granted conservatorship after she had breakdowns in public, including shaving her head.
After the FreeBritney protests by fans and shocking documentary, the fight for the removal of the order sparked a new legal battle.
Jamie, 69, filed a petition to lift the 13-year-old order last month.
Next Wednesday is the next court date, which will be held one day after the new Netflix series airs.
This week Britney posted on Instagram: “There is nothing stronger than the bond between a mother and her son.”
She added of her boys, now 16 and 15: “I’m so incredibly blessed to have these two little men in my life.”
