So, I went and hired Ernst & Young out of Nashville, brought them in and did an entire audit of every single detail of her business from publishing to branding to merchandising...we had a huge doll line. Tour merch, and all of that. And I had those guys give me a report that showed me, and we all broke it down. And then I went back, assessed it, and then I wound up having to make a lot of adjustments after that." Interviewer: "So how did you feel when you got that report?" Bryan: "I was not very well liked, you could put it that way, amongst the team." Interviewer: "Did you give a rat's ***? I mean, if they're stealing from your sister?"

There’s just so much you can do to help a person—I don’t dare want to be an enabler, and I cannot love her enough for the both of us. I cannot convince her in ANY way to love herself. All I can do is be a friend, someone that loved her for MANY years unconditionally, and PRAY. That, I have decided is the most and best I can do for my friend. I cannot save her from herself, nor can I commit her to any type of treatment program against her wishes and will. I am throwing my hands up and realizing that I am helpless over another—ANYONE! It’s been a hard reality for me to face. I have lived my best example daily, and that is ALL I’m capable of. To see what’s transpiring now, makes me feel a failure, defeated. I LOVED and BELIEVED in what I was a part of for the past 10 years and was so incredibly proud of Britney and all she’d become.

Ms. Spears’s brother Bryan, along with a lawyer, were given control of her revocable trust, which contains all her liquid assets, so they could begin paying her bills.

Streisand says Britney has expressed a "very strong desire" for her father, Jamie Spears, not to be the conservator of her estate. He asks the court to name Northern Trust Bank and Spears' business manager Howard Grossman as co-conservators. At the request of Jeryll S. Cohen, lawyer for James P.

I don't know which doctor prescribed those three drugs [the antipsychotic medications Risperdal and Seroquel and the stimulant Adderall], but the medication she was taking was not agreeing with her.

Over the course of more than five ( 5) years, Declarant has instituted multiple protocols by which the conservatorship estate operates and which have proven to be beneficial to the Conservatee. By way of example, and not by way of limitation, at the planning stages of the Circus Tour, the Declarant instructed entertainment counsel to spread the risk of the Conservatee failing to fulfill her duties on tour because of some third party providing illegal substances. The financial stakes were high and failure was not an option. Declarant insisted that all contracting parties with the conservatorship estate, (there were hundreds of contracts), would sign consents [redacted] long as they were involved with the tour, [redacted] agree to liquidated damages and confidentiality [redacted] acknowledgments of their responsibilities to have [redacted] was greatly concerned at the planning stages for the Circus Tour, that the many hundreds of vendors, drivers, dancers, hair stylists, performers, etc. could bring financial disaster to the tour by providing illegal substances to the Conservatee. That protective environment involving literally hundreds of people, who also assumed the risk if they acted improperly. That protocol greatly reduced the risk of financial failure and personal harm to the Conservatee. The same protocols were employed for the second tour and now for the Las Vegas residency." Wallet claims that "The conservatorship estate [redacted] plus the non-liquid assets, as previously stated. The "bad'' and incompetent people previously involved in the Conservatee's personal and business life, have been swept out as a result of Declarant's utilizing and urging the use of various legal actions, his terminating people's employment, resolving disputes, resulting in eliminating liabilities, debts and various threats to the conservatorship estate and the person. It has been a full time job for months at a time in order to get things under control and productive." Further, Wallet says that "Throughout the conservatorship, Declarant has been continuously engaged in the business affairs of the conservatorship estate, including interfacing with entertainment counsel, reviewing all contracts (hundreds), negotiating terms, resolving legal and business issues, interfacing with the manager, interfacing with the business managers, interfacing with Mr. Spears, interfacing with Ms. Wyle and Ms. Cohen and interfacing with Mr. Ingham among many others.

And I never agreed to take my medication — my medication is only taken in the mornings, never at rehearsal. They don’t even see me. So why are they even claiming that? When I said no to one dance move into rehearsals, it was as if I planted a huge bomb somewhere. And I said no, I don’t want to do it this way. After that my management, my dancers and my assistant of the new people that were supposed to do the new show all went into a room, shut the door and didn’t come out for at least 45 minutes. Ma’am, I’m not here to be anyone’s slave. I can say no to a dance move. I was told by my at the time therapist, Dr. Benson — who [has since] died — that my manager called him and then that moment and told him I wasn’t cooperating or following the guidelines in rehearsals. And he also said I wasn’t taking my medication, which is so dumb, because I’ve had the same lady every morning for the past eight years give me my same medication. And I’m nowhere near these stupid people. It made no sense at all. There was a week period where they were nice to me, and I told them I don’t want to do it that way. They said if I don’t want to do the new Vegas show, I don’t have to because I was getting really nervous. It was like lifting literally 200 pounds off of me when they said I don’t have to do the show anymore, because it was really really hard on me and it was too much. I couldn’t take it anymore. So I remember telling my assistant, I feel weird if I say no, I feel like they’re gonna come back and be mean to me or punish me or something. Three days later, after I said no to Vegas, my therapist sat me down in a room and said he had a million phone calls about how I was not cooperating in rehearsals, and I haven’t been taking my medication. All this was false — he immediately, the next day, put me on lithium out of nowhere. He took me off my normal meds I’ve been on for five years. And lithium is a very, very strong and completely different medication compared to what I was used to. You can go mentally impaired if you take too much if you stay on it longer than five months. But he put me on that and I felt drunk. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad really about anything. I told him I was scared and I my doctor had me on six different nurses with this new medication come to my home, stay with me to monitor me on this new medication, which I never wanted to be on to begin with. There were six different nurse nurses in my home and they wouldn’t let me get in my car to go anywhere for a month. Not only did my family not do a ****** thing, my dad was all for it. Anything that happened to me had to be approved by my dad. And my dad acted like he didn’t know that I was told I had to be tested over the Christmas holidays before they sent me away, when my kids went to home to Louisiana. He was the one who approved all of it. My whole family did nothing." Nov. 2, 2018 - 2300 White Stallion, LLC is registered as a corporate entity in the State of California.

Britney later testifies: "Over the two-week holiday, a lady came into my home for four hours a day, sat me down and did a psych test on me. It took forever. But I was I was told I had to, then after that I got off. When I was told I had to, then after I got a phone call from my dad, basically saying I’d failed the test or whatever, whatever. “I’m sorry, Britney, you have to listen to your doctors. They’re planning to send you to a small home in Beverly Hills to do a small rehab program that we’re going to make up for you. You’re going to pay $60,000 a month for this.” I cried on the phone for an hour and he loved every minute of it. The control he had over someone as powerful as me, as he loved the control to hurt his own daughter 100,000%. He loved it. I packed my bags and went to that place. I worked seven days a week, no days off, which in California, the only similar thing to this is called s** trafficking. Making anyone work against their will, taking all their possessions away — credit card, cash, phone passport — and placing them in a home where they work with the people who live with them. They all lived in the house with me, the nurses, the 24-7 security. There was one chef that came there and cooked for me daily on them during the weekdays. They watched me change every day — morning, noon and night. I had no privacy dog from my, from my room, I get eight gallons of blood a week. If I didn’t do any of my meetings and work from eight to six at night, which is 10 hours a day, seven days a week, no days off, I wouldn’t be able to see my kids or my boyfriend. I never had a say in my schedule. They always told me I had to do this. And Ma’am, I will tell you, sitting in a chair 10 hours a day, seven days a week, in a fog… and especially when you can’t walk out the front door."

  4. Dearest Exhale, I'd like to dedicate this thread to our favorite super sleuth @RebellionSparkles who has some very important questions regarding the CON accounting. Can anyone help answer these burning questions? Jump in! With Love, Steel M. xoxo #ResearchThread #BritneySuperSleuths
  5. Dearest Super Sleuths, It's time for The Jeryls to have their very own research thread. So far, their role in shaping the CON has been mostly overlooked, despite their great power: [Image Credit: @MeanerThree on Twitter] What do we know about these two illustrious ladies? How did they become connected with James Parnell Spears? What other notable cases have The Jeryls been involved in? Please help us take a deep dive into The Jeryls by leaving your knowledge here. Happy Sleuthing! #ResearchThread #BritneySuperSleuths
  6. Fellow Super Sleuths, I'm going to be starting my Ph.D. in September and am already getting too busy to participate in sleuthing the way I used to. Can ya'll help me update the sources for my Chronological Timeline so that we have them all in one place? Google Drive: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oRaWDI27P0yucmEE4R13xk9v6cWWSX9PwlayJ6tZEaA/edit?usp=sharing What I'm looking for: Sources for each entry (MLA format, if possible). Missing entries (Key dates that had a legal impact). My timeline focuses specifically on the legal aspects of Britney's case, particularly in terms of her finances, so I tend to hold off on adding entries until: The source is verified to be solid, or The new entry dovetails with an existing entry, or The new entry helps support a legal argument. So... If you would like to suggest an entry, please include the piece of law that applies or a justification of why the event should be added. Britney has a long and illustrious career so it would be easy to fill this timeline with pop culture facts...But I'm going for something a bit different here. Anyway... Please scroll through the Google Drive link above and comment below. Thanks, Sleuths! Related: #ResearchThread #BritneySuperSleuths

  8. Dear Super Sleuths, It started in 2001 as Britney's pride and joy. It ended in 2010 with a cash donation of $42,000 to Mercy Ministries, Inc., a Christian organization for at-risk girls that Lou M. Taylor and her husband “Pastor Rob” have worked closely with for 30 years. Background: "Britney founded The Britney Spears Foundation, a charitable entity set up to help children in need. The philosophy behind the Foundation was that music and entertainment has a healing quality that can benefit children. The Foundation also supported the annual Britney Spears Camp for the Performing Arts, where campers had the opportunity to explore and develop their talents. In April 2002, through the efforts of Spears and The Britney Spears Foundation, a grant of $1 million was made to the Twin Towers Fund to support the children of uniformed service heroes affected by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, including New York City Fire Department and its Emergency Medical Services Command, the New York City Police Department, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the New York State Office of court Administration and other government offices. However, it was reported in 2008 that the Foundation had a deficit of $200,000. After the singer went through conservatorship, her father and lawyer Andrew Wallet zeroed out the effort, leading to its closure in 2011."

Britney later testifies: "When I came off that tour, a new show in Las Vegas was supposed to take place. I started rehearsing early, but it was hard because I’d been doing Vegas for four years and I needed a break in between. But no, I was told this is the timeline and this is how it’s going to go. I rehearsed four to four days a week. Half of the time in the studio and a half of the other time in a Westlake studio. I was basically directing most of the show. I actually did most of the choreography, meaning I taught my dancers my new choreography myself, I take everything I do very seriously. There’s tons of video with me at rehearsals. I wasn’t good — I was great. I led a room of 16 new dancers in rehearsals. It’s funny to hear my managers’ side of the story. They all said I wasn’t participating in rehearsals. And I never agreed to take my medication — my medication is only taken in the mornings, never at rehearsal. They don’t even see me. So why are they even claiming that? When I said no to one dance move into rehearsals, it was as if I planted a huge bomb somewhere. And I said no, I don’t want to do it this way. After that my management, my dancers and my assistant of the new people that were supposed to do the new show all went into a room, shut the door and didn’t come out for at least 45 minutes. Ma’am, I’m not here to be anyone’s slave. I can say no to a dance move. I was told by my at the time therapist, Dr. Benson — who [has since] died — that my manager called him and then that moment and told him I wasn’t cooperating or following the guidelines in rehearsals. And he also said I wasn’t taking my medication, which is so dumb, because I’ve had the same lady every morning for the past eight years give me my same medication. And I’m nowhere near these stupid people. It made no sense at all. There was a week period where they were nice to me, and I told them I don’t want to do it that way. They said if I don’t want to do the new Vegas show, I don’t have to because I was getting really nervous. It was like lifting literally 200 pounds off of me when they said I don’t have to do the show anymore, because it was really really hard on me and it was too much. I couldn’t take it anymore. So I remember telling my assistant, I feel weird if I say no, I feel like they’re gonna come back and be mean to me or punish me or something. Three days later, after I said no to Vegas, my therapist sat me down in a room and said he had a million phone calls about how I was not cooperating in rehearsals, and I haven’t been taking my medication. All this was false — he immediately, the next day, put me on lithium out of nowhere. He took me off my normal meds I’ve been on for five years. And lithium is a very, very strong and completely different medication compared to what I was used to. You can go mentally impaired if you take too much if you stay on it longer than five months. But he put me on that and I felt drunk. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad really about anything. I told him I was scared and I my doctor had me on six different nurses with this new medication come to my home, stay with me to monitor me on this new medication, which I never wanted to be on to begin with. There were six different nurse nurses in my home and they wouldn’t let me get in my car to go anywhere for a month. Not only did my family not do a ****** thing, my dad was all for it. Anything that happened to me had to be approved by my dad. And my dad acted like he didn’t know that I was told I had to be tested over the Christmas holidays before they sent me away, when my kids went to home to Louisiana. He was the one who approved all of it. My whole family did nothing." Nov. 2, 2018 - 2300 White Stallion, LLC is registered as a corporate entity in the State of California.

Jan. 4, 2019 - The Domination residency is put on hold as "Britney" announces an indefinite work hiatus due to James' ruptured colon. Britney later testifies: "Over the two-week holiday, a lady came into my home for four hours a day, sat me down and did a psych test on me. It took forever. But I was I was told I had to, then after that I got off. When I was told I had to, then after I got a phone call from my dad, basically saying I’d failed the test or whatever, whatever. “I’m sorry, Britney, you have to listen to your doctors. They’re planning to send you to a small home in Beverly Hills to do a small rehab program that we’re going to make up for you. You’re going to pay $60,000 a month for this.” I cried on the phone for an hour and he loved every minute of it. The control he had over someone as powerful as me, as he loved the control to hurt his own daughter 100,000%. He loved it. I packed my bags and went to that place. I worked seven days a week, no days off, which in California, the only similar thing to this is called s** trafficking. Making anyone work against their will, taking all their possessions away — credit card, cash, phone passport — and placing them in a home where they work with the people who live with them. They all lived in the house with me, the nurses, the 24-7 security. There was one chef that came there and cooked for me daily on them during the weekdays. They watched me change every day — morning, noon and night. I had no privacy dog from my, from my room, I get eight gallons of blood a week. If I didn’t do any of my meetings and work from eight to six at night, which is 10 hours a day, seven days a week, no days off, I wouldn’t be able to see my kids or my boyfriend. I never had a say in my schedule. They always told me I had to do this. And Ma’am, I will tell you, sitting in a chair 10 hours a day, seven days a week, in a fog… and especially when you can’t walk out the front door."

I’m telling you again, because I’m not lying. I want to feel heard. And I’m telling you this again, so maybe you can understand the depth and the degree and the damage that they did to me back then."

  11. -----Update March 2, 2022-------------------------- Tri star’s motion to quash is back on the calendar, which means they aren’t settling out of court. This a slight disappointment for me Bc I had assumed off calendar=out of court settlement, which IMHO, means a faster conclusion. Timing is the more relevant factor IMHO. The fraud and stealing are so blatant that the conclusion is inevitable —it’s a matter of “when?” not “if.” The ONLY logical strategy for Tri Star is to delay, which is the purpose of this motion to quash, IMHO. But Britney and Rosendaddy clearly have a much larger strategy at play and I cannot wait to watch it play out. We are all grateful to Rosendaddy—his last filing gave the public the transparency needed to conclude that fraud/stealing was a major component of Britney’s CONservatorship. I know Breathe Heavy already knew this ^^; but now it is the consensus opinion for the general public as well. -----Update Jan 17, 2022-------------------------- The Jamie Lynn narcissism tour was intended to be a distraction from the Tri-Star accounting motion that was supposed to be heard on Jan 19. This motion was the one taken off the calendar, which is likely very positive for Britney’s case. Rosengart is doing a great job, and Breathe Heavy helped, IMO. So now, JL is just being dumb JL…this no longer is to the benefit of Tri-Star because Tri-Star no longer needs a smoke screen for the Jan 19 hearing. I will post an update to the Accounting topic on Friday. If you have comments, questions, additions to the update, please respond by quoting this post (this will help me test a hypothesis about BH’s SEO). These are the things I plan to discuss in the update: Lou Taylor is not a mastermind. She is just a bookkeeper who lies. Rosengart will have plenty of receipts to track Lou Taylor or Robin Greenhill’s wrongdoings. The opposite is true for Larry Rudolph, who is just as evil as Lou and Robin IMO, but he knows how to avoid a paper trail. Fraud, embezzlement, tax evasion-->the basic about financial crimes and why the IRS or SEC might be a more immediate threat to Tri-Star than Britney and Rosengart. Which motion was taken off the Jan 19 calendar, why, and what does it mean? Why is this a good thing for Britney? How does the relate to Tri-Star’s accounting and Justice for Britney? How I think the Breath Heavy community made a positive impact for Britney’s case; and how we can continue to make a positive impact in the Justice for Britney phase. Why someone like Lou Taylor or Tri-star would even care about a website like Breathe Heavy (versus Reddit, Twitter, or court documents) Larger implications for the public airing of Tri-Star’s accounting and how this could potentially impact Tri-Star’s clients, like the Kardashians and Jenners (if they are still working with Lou) Why any potential misdeeds of Larry Rudolph, Robin Greenhill, and Lou Taylor would be more sinister than white collar financial crimes, and how/why the wrongdoing should be considered a mechanism for enforcing involuntary servitude. -------Original post-------------------------- Loucifer’s accountings reviewed—everything you thought was true, is probably true (allegedly). I’ve uploaded an annotated version of the Twelfth Account Current—anyone who is craving Britney content or ways to kindle their flame of righteous indignation toward Loucifer and the Cali court systems, needs to read it. AKA everyone needs to read it. Link here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1f8RYFZiT59-p5AjB5ZBNX4WiFahG1OZe/view?usp=sharing I took a day off work to go through Brit’s accountings—I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks. Accounting filings usually have allll the tea because their function is to provide transparency; this is the primary oversight mechanism for the Courts. Britney’s accountings, however, have been skillfully designed to avoid transparency—this is enabled through the Court’s latitude and incompetence. Essentially, the Court allowed team CON to make its own accounting rules and to redact any information required to assess financial improprieties. The ONE thing that the accounting filings made clear is the severity of Brit’s situation. Friends, this is a clear-cut case of involuntary servitude through legal coercion. …I have a lot of takeaways that are much more light-hearted from the accountings; but right now I’m a bit emotionally drained. I’ll have to post interesting findings later. In the meantime-read the accounting document!! Be informed ahead of the next hearing! The document is much more fun than my sad rant above. Required CYA disclosure: this is all opinion. None of this is advise…blah blah…I’m not your lawyer, doctor, astrologer, etc. so don’t take advice from me or from anyone on the internet. Insert allegedly after every word.
