Britney Spears and her father Jamie are still fighting in court over his legal fees and the singer’s allegations of conservatorship abuse. Jamie Spears’ lawyers have filed paperwork requesting that Britney take a deposition in order to refute claims made on social media and in her upcoming tell-all memoir about her father.
According to court records acquired by PEOPLE, Jamie’s lawyers filed paperwork last week seeking that Britney takes a deposition in order to refute charges she made about her father on social media and in her impending tell-all biography.
Jamie’s lawyer, Alex Weingarten, wrote in a declaration to compel the “Toxic” singer, 40, to be deposed, “Britney’s counsel claims Britney is exempt from discovery obligations regarding her allegations of wrongdoing, but Jamie has a right to prepare his case and depose Britney, as she is the individual making unsupported claims against him.”
According to the brief, there is “no legal basis” to oppose the singer testifying because the questioning may entail “emotionally challenging themes,” which the artist has already addressed on social media, citing many Instagram postings in the last few months.
“She claims to know all kinds of information relevant to her charges of misconduct through her court filings and her social media musings,” according to the petition

Accordingly, Britney either: has the knowledge and support about her allegations that she claims in court filings and on social media; or does not have such knowledge or support and simply believes that she can say whatever she wants in court and on social media regardless of whether her allegations are true.” Jamie, 69, is now asking the court to intervene in their next hearing, which is set for July 13.
Jamie’s Lawyer Has yet To Reply to A Request for Comment from People
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Britney’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart filed a motion to compel Jamie to be deposed this month, claiming that he “still has not appeared for his deposition” since he was initially given notice on Oct. 20, 2021. Jamie has also failed to show up for any of the preceding at least eight deposition dates, according to the lawsuit.
“Mr. Spears can flee, but he can never escape his legal and fiduciary responsibilities,” Rosengart wrote. “For the first time, Mr. Spears will have to pay his own legal fees after utilizing his daughter’s money for more than 13 years to fund his legal fees and expenses.”
Just over a month after Britney’s conservatorship ended, Jamie asked Britney’s estate to reimburse his legal team for “ongoing fiduciary duties connected to the winding up of the Conservatorship of the Person and Estate,” a request Rosengart labeled “shameful” in a statement to PEOPLE at the time.
Rosengart argued that Jamie had crucial knowledge on “pending proceedings” and is avoiding the deposition because he allegedly broke conservatorship requirements.
