It would not be wrong to say that it is the year of Britney Spears. A few months back, she filed a lawsuit against her father, Jamie Spears to end a 13-year-old conservatorship. At the same time, the Free Britney movement started to spread awareness about this case. After intense backlash and her explosive statement in court, her father stepped down. Since then, she has been living in bliss and engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari. However, a new documentary is revealing that her bedroom, phone, and iPad were all bugged. At the same time, her conversations were monitored constantly.
Since past few months, Spears’ life has changed drastically
In 2008, the court-appointed Jamie Spears her conservator after Britney Spears had a public mental breakdown. Since then, her father has controlled her career, her $60 million worth estate, and her personal life. From forcing her to perform in Las Vegas to not allowing her to get married, Britney Spears has described the conservatorship as abusive. In a court hearing, she gave an official statement and said:
“All I want is to own my money and for this to end and for my boyfriend to be able to drive me in his f—ing car. I have an IUD in my body right now that won’t let me have a baby and my conservators won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out. I want my life back.”
This led to a charged Free Britney movement to come forward with full support for her. At the same time, there have been many documentaries out on the conservatorship.
Earlier this month, it all ended and Britney Spears finally got engaged to her longtime boyfriend
After her father stepped down from the conservatorship, the world rejoiced. While Britney Spears celebrated, she thanked her boyfriend, Sam Asghari for his support and love. A few days later, Asghari proposed and the couple got engaged. However, many people came forward with their advice and asked her to get him to sign a prenup. In order to stay away from all the social media drama, Spears went offline for a few days. She said that she wants to celebrate in private with her fiancé.
Recently, a new revelation came out that Britney Spears had her phone and bedroom bugged
In a recent documentary, Controlling Britney Spears, a former Black Box Security employee revealed some more details. According to Alex Vlasov, the company mirrored Spears’ phone on an iPad by logging into her iCloud account. At the same time, a listening device was placed in her bedroom. He also revealed that Britney Spears’ texts were encrypted and sent to her father. When he asked her team the reason, they said that it’s for her own safety and protection. From her conversations with her lawyer to her boyfriend, all phone calls were monitored. According to Jamie Spears’ lawyer, the court and Britney Spears were aware of this monitoring. However, it is obvious that she did not consent to this violation of her privacy.
Although she is free now, the kind of mental torture Britney Spears had to endure is unheard of. Hopefully, she can find peace and happiness in her new life.
