While there’s no doubt that every parent loses his or her cool once in a while, this is something we definitely didn’t expect from the Spears family.
There’s a new report that says Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears allegedly called his daughter “fat” and a “whore” and a terrible mother soon after her conservatorship began. Here’s what you need to know.
Apparently, Jamie Spears knew that he had so much control over his daughter that he sometimes would say, “I am Britney Spears!” according to a family friend.
Jamie Spears Allegedly Said Some Pretty Awful Things About His Daughter Britney Spears
“Jamie said, ‘Baby’ … and I thought he was going to say, ‘We love you, but you need help,” longtime family friend Jacqueline Butcher told The New Yorker in a new interview. “But what he said was, ‘You’re fat. Daddy’s gonna get you on a diet and a trainer, and you’re gonna get back in shape.’”
And while there’s no doubt that Jamie Spears was the mastermind behind Britney’s comeback after her breakdown in 2007 and 2008, he often wore her down with abuse.
“He would get all in her face — spittle was flying — telling her she was a whore and a terrible mother,” Butcher added.
If that weren’t enough, Jamie would only allow Britney to see her two sons if she obeyed his orders and unfortunately her mother, Lynne Spears, was no help. Lynne, “was just, like, ‘Obey Daddy and they’ll let you out,’” Butcher recalled.
When asked about the conservatorship, Lynne told The New Yorker in a separate interview – in a hushed whisper – “I got mixed feelings about everything. I don’t know what to think. It’s a lot of pain, a lot of worry.”
The New Yorker also says that Britney Spears called 911 the night before the testimony as she wanted to report herself as a victim of abuse. The call has since been confirmed by the Ventura County law enforcement department.
During her court hearing, Britney blamed her family for the worsened mental state due to the tight control they have over her conservatorship. She said, “I would honestly like to sue my family, to be totally honest with you.
I also would like to be able to share my story with the world, and what they did to me, instead of it being a hush-hush secret to benefit all of them. I want to be able to be heard on what they did to me by making me keep this in for so long. It is not good for my heart. I’ve been so angry, and I cry every day.”
