Britney Spears told lawyers dad threatened to take kids away in Netflix tapes

Sep 23, 2021

Pop singer Britney Spears told her lawyer her father reportedly threatened to take her children away from her in bombshell Netflix tapes.

Harrowing calls from the Toxic hitmaker concerned about the legal proceedings dad Jamie allegedly threatened her with will be broadcast in a new Netflix documentary, Britney Vs Spears, next week.

The explosive audio clips will be aired for the first time, where the star can be heard contacting her lawyers about her concerns.

Britney VS Spears will include new details over the battle of conservatorship from the 2008 court order, which was imposed on the musician after she went through public breakdowns the year before.

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.

However, following the FreeBritney movement by fans and shocking documentaries, the fight to have the order lifted sparked a fresh legal battle.

Last month, 69-year-old Jamie filed a petition to end the 13-year order.

The next court date is scheduled for next Wednesday, a day after the new programme airs on Netflix.

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.”
