Hot on the heels of scathing documents put in the docket in Los Angeles Superior Court last week by the younger Spears’ main attorney Matthew Rosengart seeking the immediate “suspension” or resignation of the elder Spears, Monday’s filing accuses Jamie Spears of “horrifying and unconscionable invasions of his adult daughter’s privacy.” A New York Times report and FX on Hulu documentary late last week detailed a pervasive surveillance system that has been monitoring the singer’s every movement and conversation – including in her bedroom – for years.
With Britney Spears having called repeatedly for a probe of her father’s conduct and terming the conservatorship “abusive,” today’s filing comes just more than 48 hours ahead of a pivotal hearing in Judge Brenda Penny’s downtown Los Angeles courtroom that could see a major shift in the arrangement that has dominated the performer’s life since a series of very public incidents in 2007 and 2008.
