Britney Spears has claimed in a new court that her father, Jamie Spears, is seeking to open her medical records for “revenge” and “vengeance”.
The pop star’s attorney, Matthew Rosengart, argued in a motion filed Monday that Jamie, 70, another “regrettable — and mean-spirited — attempt to bully, harass and intimidate his own daughter” with “a new low.” level sank”. Per document obtained exclusively by Page Six.
On July 22, Alex Weingarten, the suspended patron’s attorney, argued in a motion that Brittany, 40, should be deposed and that some of the Grammy winner’s previously sealed medical records be included in the performance.
As a result, private records were then “conditionally” sealed, meaning they could be made public at a later date pending a court decision, according to california law,
Rosengart pointed to Weingarten’s filing – less than two weeks after a judge ruled in Brittany’s favor to depose her father – as an indication of Jamie’s alleged motives. (The judge later said the “Toxic” singer would not have to sit down to testify.)
“By then, Mr. Spears was well aware that this court had issued a provisional decision on 13 July 2022 to reject her motion and it was well aware that this court had issued a provisional judgment on 27 July for Ms. Spears’ statement. will resolve the issue of, 2022,” the former federal prosecutor said.
He continued, “As a result, Mr. Spears may have no purpose in seeking to make public the conditionally sealed material other than for his alleged ‘vendetta’ and plotting revenge against his own daughter. This is shameful.” Is.”
Rosengart also argued in the motion that Brittany’s personal records are protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Privacy of Medical Information Act (CMIA), which are laws that protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable medical information. protect.
The Los Angeles-based attorney also pointed out that Jamie and his former attorney moved to seal Britney’s records the first time she was a custodian from 2008 to 2021.
He then noted that Britney’s records must remain under seal until at least October 26, 2022, when a hearing date on the case is set.
Rosengart reveals Brittany’s true feelings on her father’s efforts, concluding, “Her own wonderful, estranged daughter is now independent and wants to move on with her life. That’s all that matters. A gentle, loving person.” That’s all that matters to the father. … He should stop abusing the process. He should stop harassing and threatening his daughter. And she should move on.”
Weingarten first asked Judge Brenda Penney to open the records at a hearing in January, declaring that “the public has a right to know” more references to the “exaggerated” singer’s case, people reported those days.
That day outside the courtroom, Rosengart told Variety reporter Elizabeth Wagmeister That Jamie, who has denied wrongdoing, had made an “abusive request”.
“Does a father really do that?” He asked. ,[Jamie] claims how much he loves his daughter, and yet, what does he want to do now? He wants more money from his wealth to prepare his own defence, and he wants to open his personal records. It’s against the law, it’s against common sense, and I think it’s indecent.”
Jamie’s attorney did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment on the latest proposal.
