Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, has blasted the #FreeBritney campaign, which he claims is a ‘conspiracy’.

The 68-year-old had been the co-conservator of his daughter for 11 years following a high-profile breakdown. He managed Britney’s financial affairs and daily life until September 2019, when Jodi Montgomery became her temporary conservator.

In a new interview with The New York Post, Jamie continued to speak in favour of the conservatorship, arguing that it’s ‘no one else’s business’, while criticising the fan movement, which calls for Britney to be ‘freed’ from his control.

He also argues that the campaign is ‘a joke’ for seemingly portraying him as a bad father.

‘All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. The world don’t have a clue,’ he told the publication.

‘It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.’

Jamie also denied that he has been stealing money from Britney, 38, stating: ‘I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year.

‘How the hell would I steal something?’

Later referring to the types of fans he has witnessed campaign against the conservatorship, he said: ‘People are being stalked and targeted with death threats. It’s horrible.

‘We don’t want those kinds of fans.’

Jamie added that he ‘loves’ Britney, but the situation is ‘private’.

It comes after Britney’s older brother Bryan Spears, 43, gave his thoughts on the conservatorship during an appearance on the As Not Seen On TV podcast, referring to it as ‘frustrating.’

‘Whether someone’s coming in peace to help or coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating,’ he explained. ‘She’s been in this thing for quite some time now.

‘Obviously there was a need for it at the beginning that I assume everyone knows the issues that were going on, and now they’ve made some changes and all we can kinda do is hope for the best.’

Later discussing the #FreeBritney movement and its supporters, Bryan said: ‘I don’t quite know what their meaning is. I don’t follow it that well.

‘But I am aware that they feel like it’s, maybe she’s being confined or held against her will in some capacity, but I can’t really speak for them.’

Bryan added that his father has ‘done the best he could given the situation he was put in’, and that the Spears family have worked hard ‘to keep it all going’.
