In June and July, Britney brought a series of charges against her father. He allegedly forced her to undergo treatment and undergo unnecessary therapy, limited her personal rights. The story received widespread publicity, after which James Spears announced his refusal to take custody of his daughter. Quite vile details of this story have flared up the other day.
Britney Spears’ lawyers claim her father James Spears “extorted” $ 2 million for his daughter’s freedom, TMZ reports. Part of the ransom will go to cover legal fees and pay to his daughter Tri Star’s business manager, most of which will apparently go directly to him. And until he gets the money, Britney’s freedom will not be seen.
“The status quo has been broken. Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father. Also, James Spears has no right to try to hold his daughter hostage, setting the conditions for his refusal of guardianship.
Even leaving aside the legal issues requiring his immediate suspension, if Mr. Spears loves his daughter, he must give up custody right now before being removed, ”said Britney’s lawyer Matt Rosengart.
James’ attorneys remain unconvinced. They see no reason for his immediate removal from guardianship. They described Britney as “mentally ill.”
