Britney Spears' former business manager sent BreatheHeavy a legal letter demanding we retract a story that was featured on BreatheHeavy and apologize within 24 hours or face legal action. The article included quotes from Courtney Love who shared her experience with Taylor, alleging Taylor tried putting her in a conservatorship similar to the one Britney Spears is currently entangled in and can't seemingly get out of.
Ms. Taylor via her legal counsel refute the following featured in the article below:
"1. My clients 'planned the conservatorship for Britney [Spears] with her father'"
"2. My clients 'tried' 'to put [Courtney Love] in a conservatorship too.'"
"3. My clients 'made an attempt to control [Kurt Cobain’s] name and likeness and all [N]irvana songs (96 percent). Then sell the publishing.'"
"4. Ms. Love 'was successful at blocking [Lou Taylor]” and that “[Ms. Spears’] pack of wolves [referring to my client] almost killed [Courtney Love] and [her] only child [Frances Bean Cobain].'"
Taylor refutes this and wants you to know the following:
"All of these statements are false and defamatory."
"The true facts are as follows:"
"1. Lou Taylor and Tri Star never represented Courtney Love, Kurt Cobain, their daughter, or any entity affiliated with them. Lou Taylor and Tri Star also never even had a single conversation or communication whatsoever relating to a possible conservatorship for Courtney Love. They also have never even spoken to or communicated with Courtney Love ever."
"2. Lou Taylor and Tri Star also had nothing to do with the planning or creation of the conservatorship for Britney Spears. They were hired to be Ms. Spears’ financial manager a year after that conservatorship had already been put in place."
I would like to take this opportunity to point out that per request we are retracting/amending this story and apologize for any distress they may have caused Ms. Taylor. It must be difficult to deal with thousands of people who adore Britney Spears and would go to great lengths to protect one of the most important, influential and iconic figures in pop culture.
