Oct. 21, 2018 - Britney plays one final show for the Piece of Me: Exclusive Limited Tour in Austin, Texas. 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."

  3. Fellow sleuths... It's time to take a closer look at the details of how Britney ended up in rehab. Why? Her three consecutive "in-and-out" trips to rehab were used against her to strip her of custody of her two toddlers and then to eventually strip her of her freedom for 13 years. Larry Rudolph: In his Sept. 7, 2007 deposition for the custody case, Larry Rudolph admits that a team of insiders began planning an "intervention" in January of 2007, as early as eight weeks after Britney filed for divorce from Kevin Federline. Included in the various conference calls and planning were Larry, Kevin Federline, Jamie Spears, Lynne Spears, Bryan Spears, interventionist Betty Wyman, and Britney's divorce attorney, Laura Wasser. Feb. 1, 2007: For the second month in a row, Britney and Kevin Federline temporarily agree to continue to share joint legal custody of their two toddlers. Kevin's physical custody is limited to Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from noon to 4 pm at Britney's residence. The agreement extends until the end of February 2007. Feb. 14, 2007: Britney is taken to rehab in Antigua by manager Larry Rudolph. It is a Wednesday, making it one of Kevin Federline's visitation days with the boys. Within 24 hours, Britney checks herself out and returns to Miami. Feb. 16, 2007: Britney nearly misses her six-hour flight from Miami to Los Angeles. The walkway is re-extended so she can board the plane. It is a Friday, making it one of Kevin Federline's scheduled visitation days from noon to 4 pm at Britney's residence. Around 7 pm, Britney shaves her head, and then sits for a new tattoo, leaving the studio around 9 pm. Britney then attacks a paparazzo's car with an umbrella after standing outside of the home of Kevin Federline, demanding to see their two infant sons. Feb. 17, 2007: Britney no longer has access to any form of money. She cannot even book a hotel room because she no longer has the full number for the black Amex credit card belonging to her manager that was scrawled on a piece of paper. Feb. 20, 2007: Britney checks into Promises rehab center in Los Angeles. According to Lynne Spears, “Right before Britney went into Promises, after she shaved her head, I got an anonymous call from a man while I was driving in Los Angeles. There are drugs planted in Britney’s Malibu home,” he said, going on to tell me that it was a conspiracy between Kevin and Britney’s assistants to make my daughter look like a bad mother.” Two paragraphs later, Lynne admits that the man who called about the drugs was Sam Lutfi. On the night of either February 20 or February 21, while at the apartment of her brother Bryan, and in the presence of celebrity interventionist Betty Wyman, Britney is unknowingly fed an unidentified medication by her mother, Lynne Spears. According to Lutfi: "Yes, Lynne was at her sons Bryans apt in Marina Del , I believe Betty Wineman, an interventionist was present, as well as Alli Sims and there was another women[sic] there at the time. According to Lynne, she sent the unnamed woman to the pharmacy at the Ralphs Grocery Store next door to pick up an RX that she had called in, when the woman brought the pills to the apt, Lynne claims she took a pill crushed it on the kitchen counter and wiped the contents into Britneys Red Bull, in which Britney drank, passed out and later was driven to promises." Feb. 21, 2007: Kevin Federline is granted an ex parte (emergency) court hearing, presumably to request full custody of their two infant sons. The hearing is scheduled by Mark Vincent Kaplan. The date is set for Thursday, February 22. Britney checks out of Promises and drives to meet with Blair Berk, a prominent criminal defence attorney. Around 8:45 pm, Britney arrives at Kevin Federline's residence, asking to see their two infant sons. Kevin refuses her entry. At 9:30 pm, Britney is picked up from Kevin Federline's house in a vehicle driven by her mother, Lynne. At 10:20 pm, Britney and Lynne are observed to be driving around while arguing. At 10:33 pm, Britney is driven to Promises by her mother Lynne and checks back into rehab for the third time. She enters Promises for a minimum 30-day stay. Feb. 22, 2007: The emergency child custody hearing scheduled for later in the day is cancelled. Both Jamie Spears and Mark Vincent Kaplan deny that the hearing was scheduled to take place, calling the news "misinformation."

  7. A large part of the discussion around the conservatorship involves Britney's finances. Let's compare two lawsuits — the WEG lawsuit and the Brand Sense lawsuit — to see if they offer up any clues as to how her finances have been managed both before and after the conservatorship. Shall we? The WEG Lawsuit: In October of 2007, Britney's former manager, Johnny Wright, sued Britney and her company "Britney Touring, Inc." for unpaid commissions he claimed she owed him. Johnny alleged that Britney stopped paying him in December of 2006, just as she split from Kevin Federline. The commissions dated back to 2003, when Britney and Johnny parted ways, and included album advances for "In The Zone" and "Greatest Hits." The fact that "Britney Touring, Inc." was also named in the lawsuit hints that Johnny felt she owed him commissions on the "Onyx Hotel Tour," as well as possibly the "House of Blues Tour." Johnny claimed he didn't know how much she owed since he hadn't received accounting reports since 2003. Source: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/1047435/wright-sues-spears-for-breach-of-contract/ Within the court documents it stated: "Upon information and belief, SPEARS and BTI concealed from WEG a series of negotiations and agreements for otherwise commissionable Gross Receipts payable to WEG, thus diverting those commissions to SPEARS directly or indirectly, or to corporate entities without the knowledge, consent, or agreement of WEG, both before and after the termination Agreement." The Brand Sense Lawsuit: In March of 2011, a company called Brand Sense Partners, LLC sued Britney for unpaid commissions they claimed she owed them. They claimed a compromise deal was orchestrated by Jamie Spears and Lou M. Taylor, which delivered perfume royalties from Elizabeth Arden directly to Britney. Source: https://radaronline.com/exclusives/2011/03/exclusive-britney-spears-being-sued-10m-ex-business-partner/ Within the court documents it stated: “Britney secretly made a separate deal with Elizabeth Arden in a sneaky underhanded effort to circumvent and evade its obligations to Brand Sense.” ... “Brand Sense had a contractual right to a 35% commission on any Britney Spears-branded fragrance sold by Elizabeth Arden” ... “But Mr. Spears complained that the commission was too high and said that Britney did not want to pay it.” Both lawsuits were settled by the conservatorship, and included large payments to Johnny Wright and Brand Sense Partners. The SJB Revocable Trust: In July of 2004, Britney's estimated $100-million fortune was placed into the SJB Revocable Trust. Britney was named as the sole Trustee. Source: https://people.com/crime/whos-in-charge-of-britney-spearss-money/ Adam Streisand: In February of 2008, lawyer Adam Streisand attempted to represent Britney in the first hearing for the proposed conservatorship. Before being ejected from the courtroom, Streisand claimed Britney had told him her estate was worth $40-million, encompassed 15 separate entities, and was in the middle of a $17-million IRS audit with Jive Records. Streisand says Britney has expressed a "very strong desire" for her father, Jamie Spears, not to be the conservator of her estate, and asked the court to name Northern Trust Bank and her business manager Howard Grossman as co-conservators. Source: https://www.mtv.com/news/1580917/britney-spears-lawyer-ejected-from-courtroom-after-judge-doesnt-recognize-him-as-her-counsel/ Michael Sands: In February 2008, following Adam Streisand's unsuccessful attempts to represent Britney, lawyer Jon Eardley filed documents with the court claiming she had been robbed. Eardley's spokesman, Michael Sands (who was also the spokesman for Sam Lutfi) claimed that RICO Act violations had taken place. He claimed the theft was on a grand scale, involving racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering, and that the theft "occurred prior to the conservatorship taking place and continues still." Source: https://www.mtv.com/news/1582277/britney-spears-has-been-robbed-her-self-proclaimed-lawyer-insists/ Bryan Spears: In July of 2020, Britney's older brother Bryan Spears sat down for an interview where he talked about taking over the financial end of the "family business." 13:20 - "It was 2003 that I took over, until 2009." 12:20 - "We didn't have anyone that was overseeing the actual financial business development, next step kind of thing for Brit. We had managers, we had business managers, we had agents. Everything. But no one was looking at what the left hand was doing and looking at what the right hand was doing. There was no top cop, basically, who was looking out for her best interests. So we, as a family, as we always do, vote and come up with a family decision. We all thought that would be a good idea for me to oversee all of it...Making sure money is being put away, new business is being formed, brands are being formed, trying to make money while we sleep so we're not so focused on having to tour." 14:42 - "Looking at a situation...if I feel like I don't have a really good handle on it, or if I feel like I don't have the expertise to conquer it, I go and hire or find the person or company that can. 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?" Bryan: "Looking back on it, I did what was right." Interviewer: "What did you do? Did you clean house?" Bryan: "Ya. Everyone but the manager." 17:22 - "My thing was new business development, that's what I kind of focused on. Which was the branding, and creating the Elizabeth Arden fragrance line with her. Just that alone has done over a $100-billion in sales...If your brand is producing those kind of numbers globally, in a 10-year span, that's a lot of money." Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kS9Gyo7JdO8 Britney's Access to Money: In October 2006, Britney hired Sean Phillip to work for her as a personal trainer. He claims Britney had no access to her money in the months prior to the conservatorship: “It was crazy. They took away her credit cards, her phone went, she wasn’t even given the access code to her own house. “All she had financially — and this is long before the s*** hit the fan, this is before the head shaving incident — all she had was a piece of paper with one credit card number on to pay for things. “But she didn’t actually have the card in her hands. It was a black Amex which was assigned to her manager’s business. So we would be left with bills for things that we couldn’t really afford." Source: https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/15614693/britney-spears-pills-cash-hell-pal/ On March 2, 2007, while Britney was in rehab, a tabloid reported a similar story that occurred the morning after she shaved her head: "Spears, 25, stumbled into the swanky Hollywood hotel on the morning of February 17 - wearing an electric blue wig to cover her newly shaved head. The pop princess tried to book a room but was refused when it emerged she had no credit card or cash - just half a credit card number scrawled on a piece of paper." Source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-439732/Britney-Be-friend.html Connecting the Dots: In 1999, Britney hired Johnny Wright to manage her career alongside entertainment lawyer Larry Rudolph. At this time, Britney signed a 10-year contract with Johnny and his management company, Wright Entertainment Group (WEG) which specified that "sunset payments" for deals he negotiated for her were to be paid through February of 2009. Following her split with Justin Timberlake in 2003, Britney parted ways with Johnny Wright. She remained with her other manager, Larry Rudolph. Around this time, Britney's older brother, Bryan Spears, took over the financial end of the "family business." He brought in a team of accountants to do a financial audit. Upon seeing the results, Bryan fired everyone except Larry Rudolph. He went on to focus on business development, including a multi-billion-dollar perfume line with Elizabeth Arden. Not long after, the SJB Revocable Trust was created to protect Britney's fortune, which was estimated to be around $100-million. All of her stocks, furnishings, jewelry, and all other assets were placed in the Trust. Britney was named as the sole Trustee. Were Britney to become incapacitated, both Bryan Spears and lawyer Ivan Taback would become co-Trustees. Two and a half years later, Britney split with husband Kevin Federline. Following their separation, Britney did not have access to her own bank account. She had nothing but a number for a black Amex credit card for her manager's business scrawled on a piece of paper. By the time she'd returned from her first trip to rehab in Antigua in mid-February 2007, she only had half of the number remaining on the piece of paper. According to Johnny Wright, payments to WEG stopped shortly after her split with Kevin. Further, Johnny claimed he did not know exactly how much Britney owed him because he had not received an accounting report since they had parted ways in 2003. Less than a year later, in October 2007, Johnny Wright filed a lawsuit against Britney and her company "Britney Touring, Inc." In the court documents, Johnny alleged that new corporations may have been created to divert the commissions owed to him. Within four months, Jamie Spears, working with the "Spears Family Spokesperson" and owner of Tri-Star Entertainment, Lou M. Taylor, applied for a temporary conservatorship over Britney. As Britney attempted to fight the conservatorship in court, it was revealed that her $100-million fortune was now worth only $40-million. At the time, Bryan Spears remained in charge of overseeing the financial end of the "family business." With Britney deemed incompetent by the court, Bryan and Ivan Taback were named Co-Trustees of the SJB Trust. Within weeks, they transferred "Britney Touring, Inc." to the newly formed Estate, to be managed by Jamie Spears and Andrew Wallet. Two years later, in 2011, a second allegation of "diverted commissions" was made in court — this time by Brand Sense Partners, LLC. The company had brokered a deal with Elizabeth Arden to create a new line of fragrances for Britney. However, Jamie Spears and Lou M. Taylor were accused in court documents of diverting commissions from Brand Sense Partners in a "sneaky underhanded" way. Both the WEG lawsuit and the Brand Sense lawsuit were eventually settled by the conservatorship, with large payouts to both to rightly compensate them for the diverted commissions. For reference...

  8. The conservatorship was (allegedly) planned and maintained over the past 13 years by a group of people all working together as a team. Which of the players do you think will turn on the group first and begin cooperating with authorities in order to avoid criminal charges?
  9. Those of us who followed Britney's story in real-time during 2007 and 2008 know what a dark figure Sam Lutfi is. It's time for the fanbase to consider that Lutfi may have been hired by someone on Team CON to assist in setting the legal foundations for the conservatorship. Why? Lutfi's PR guy, Michael Sands (who formerly worked for Kevin Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan) and Lynne Spears have both claimed that Lutfi was inserted into Britney's life "in October of 2007." We know that is a lie. Lutfi was first photographed with Britney in June of 2007...But at least two witnesses have claimed he appeared months earlier: 1) Kalie Machado In February of 2007, Britney's assistant Kalie first encountered Lutfi. [From In Touch, print edition, March 10, 2008]: "Kalie Machado claims that while she was Britney’s assistant, she received a call from a man “at a restricted number” who said he was a private investigator working for Brit’s ex husband Kevin Federline. That man was Sam. “He said he had incriminating evidence on Britney and he was going to hand it over to me,” she recalls. “We arranged to meet in a Santa Monica Starbucks.” Kalie was nervous, so she brought her roommate with her. She says she spent 20 minutes listening to Sam talk and when she demanded to see the evidence, he instead “asked all kinds of stalkerish questions – like when we leave the house and where Britney and I went.” Finally, Kalie realized that Sam had nothing and left. “I got more calls from Sam after that,” she remembers, “but I just ignored them.” Kalie stopped working for Britney… in February, 2007 and moved to San Francisco. Months later, she says she saw a photo on the Internet that made her stomach drop. “It was Britney, standing next to the man I met in Starbucks – Sam Lutfi. I got a chill down my spine.” 2) Lynne Spears Some time between the evening of February 16, 2007, and February 21, 2007, Lynne Spears received a strange phone call. [From "Through The Storm," page 165]: “Right before Britney went into Promises, after she shaved her head, I got an anonymous call from a man while I was driving in Los Angeles. There are drugs planted in Britney’s Malibu home,” he said, going on to tell me that it was a conspiracy between Kevin and Britney’s assistants to make my daughter look like a bad mother.” Two paragraphs later, Lynne admits that the man who called about the drugs was Sam Lutfi. She then proceeded to attend a taping of Dancing With The Stars with him, and also discuss shoe and jewelry endorsements. Legal Foundations: A private investigator hired by Kevin? Incriminating evidence? Drugs planted in Britney's home? Who is Sam Lutfi? And why would he appear just prior to Britney mysteriously visiting a prominent criminal defense attorney before checking into a 30-day stint in rehab? Feb. 20, 2007: Britney checked into Promises rehab center in Los Angeles. Feb. 21, 2007: Kevin Federline was granted an ex parte (emergency) court hearing over custody of their two young sons. Britney checked out of Promises and drove to meet with Blair Berk, a prominent criminal defense attorney. Feb. 22, 2007: Britney checked back into rehab for a third time, staying for 30 days. Kevin retained sole physical custody of the boys for those 30 days. Oct. 1, 2007: A judge granted Kevin Federline the sole right "to retain physical custody of the minor children" after his attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, petitioned for an unscheduled hearing. What happened between rehab and officially losing legal custody of the boys to Kevin? Lynne Spears and Sam Lutfi attended a taping of Dancing With The Stars together on May 22, 2007. Lynne Spears and Sam Lutfi discussed shoe and jewelry endorsements. Britney was photographed partying throughout the summer, often accompanied by Sam Lutfi. The family court judge concluded that "there is a habitual, frequent, and continuous use of controlled substances and alcohol by (Spears)" and ordered her to undergo drug testing on Sept. 18, 2007. Britney was charged with hit-and-run and driving without a valid license on Sept. 23, 2007, stemming from an incident in August. Britney was photographed driving with the boys in the back of her car without a valid license. The First 5150: After losing custody on Oct.1, 2007, Britney spent the next two months with limited visitation of her boys. On Jan. 31, 2008, she locked herself in her bathroom and refused to turn the boys over to Mark Vincent Kaplan when he arrived. Sam Lutfi was present in the house. Britney later wrote a letter claiming her "friend" told her it was okay to keep the boys longer. The Second 5150: Britney spent the next month with zero visitation rights. On the night of January 27, 2008, Britney visited Dr. Deborah Nadel for the first time after the family court ordered her to undergo psychiatric testing. Over the next three days, Britney spent at least 60 hours straight awake, crying, and driving the streets of Los Angeles. On the night of January 30, 2008, paparazzi agency X17 reported that there had been a suicide attempt. Only Lutfi is present at the time, but Lynne rushed to Britney's home. On the night of January 31, 2008, Britney was alone at her house with Sam Lutfi, Lynne Spears, and Lynne's friend Jackie. Police, fire, and ambulance assisted in taking Britney to the hospital, accompanied by police helicopters. In a legal declaration filed several days later, Lynne accused Lutfi of drugging Britney that night. "Sam told Jackie and me that he grinds up Britney's pills, which were on the counter and included Risperdol and Seroquel. He told us that he puts them in her food that that was the reason she had been quiet for the last three days (she had been sleeping.) He told us that the doctor who is treating her now is trying to get her into a sleep-induced coma so that they could then give her drugs to heal her brain." The following day, Lutfi admitted that he gave Britney a "handful of pills" prior to Lynne's arrival. He claimed the pills were to treat Britney's bi-polar disorder. On Feb. 1, 2008, Jamie Spears asked the probate court for a temporary conservatorship. "Dementia" is cited as the reason. In Lynne's book, she admitted that Jamie had planned for the temporary conservatorship with Lou M. Taylor for several weeks in advance. Sam Lutfi has never been charged with any felonies related to Britney, even though the Spears accused him of drugging her, as well as stealing valuables from her home. If these accusations were true, why not press charges? The Permanent Conservatorship: On Oct. 28, 2008, the temporary conservatorship was made permanent. Britney was found to be "susceptible to undue influence," meaning she is vulnerable to others taking advantage of her. Jamie Spears used the "susceptible to undue influence" claim frequently over the next eight years, often citing Sam Lutfi as posing a danger to her. Media outlets such as TMZ frequently referred to Lutfi as being a threat until his lawsuit against the Spears wrapped in 2016. The Result: Sam Lutfi has re-appeared frequently over the past 12 years, whether it be: Assisting Britney with attempting to retain lawyer in Jon Eardley in February of 2008, earning Lutfi a restraining order. Assisting Britney in obtaining a cell phone in January of 2009 to contact lawyer Jon Eardley, earning Lutfi a second restraining order. Suing Lynne Spears over claims made in her book "Through The Storm." Suing Britney for defaulting on a management contract that would have earned Lutfi millions of dollars. Accusing Britney of being a drug user, saying he found a stash of crystal m*** in her home in July of 2007. Re-appearing on social media in 2019 and contacting Lynne Spears in 2020, resulting in additional restraining orders. Sam Lutfi may claim to be a friend of Britney, but his actions over the past 12 years have consistently given the family court and probate court reasons to: 1) Deny Britney physical and legal custody of her children. 2) Deny Britney unsupervised visitation rights with her children. 3) Commit Britney to two involuntary psychiatric holds. 4) Commit Britney to a temporary conservatorship due to "dementia." 5) Continue to hold Britney in a permanent conservatorship due to being "susceptible to undue influence." The result has been that Jamie Spears and Kevin Federline (along with attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan) have brokered private deals over the past 12 years for supervised visitation rights with the boys. This is likely the biggest reason why Britney has been compliant with the conservatorship for so many years and did not legally fight back until 2019. The question is... If Sam Lutfi was at any time paid to assist in what appears to be a multi-million-dollar racket, who was (or still is) paying him to do so? Please discuss.

  10. FREEBRITNEY advocates BJ and Kevin Wu attended Amanda Bynes’ Termination hearing and were interviewed by Variety about how bad conservatorships can be used by the legal system, here’s a clip if you’re interested
  11. I'd like to compile a thread full of information about criminal defence attorney Blair Berk. Berk became a lawyer for Jamie Spears...But originally, she worked for Britney. A Timeline: Berk first appeared in February 2007, just before Britney admitted herself to rehab for the third and final time: Feb. 16, 2007: Britney shaves her head. Feb. 20, 2007: “Right before Britney went into Promises, after she shaved her head, I got an anonymous call from a man while I was driving in Los Angeles. There are drugs planted in Britney’s Malibu home,” he said, going on to tell me that it was a conspiracy between Kevin and Britney’s assistants to make my daughter look like a bad mother.” (Lynne Spears, "Through The Storm," page 165) Two paragraphs later, Lynne admits that the man who called about the drugs was Sam Lutfi. (Side note: Three months later, Lynne and her friend Jacqueline Butcher proceeded to attend a taping of Dancing With The Stars with Lutfi, and also discuss shoe and jewelry endorsements with him.) Britney checked into Promises rehab center in Los Angeles. Feb. 21, 2007: Kevin Federline was granted an ex parte (emergency) court hearing over custody of their two young sons. Britney checked out of Promises and drove to meet with Blair Berk, a prominent criminal defense attorney. Feb. 22, 2007: Britney checked back into rehab for a third time, staying for 30 days. The Result: The result of this series of events was that Kevin Federline was handed sole physical custody of the boys for the duration of Britney's 30-day rehab stay. For the remainder of 2007, it meant Britney was fighting an uphill battle in the family court, which eventually labelled her a “habitual, frequent and continuous user of alcohol and controlled substances" and later fully stripped her of any form of visitation. It created a situation where Britney would need to obtain the services of Kevin Federline and Jamie Spears for help to solve a problem that they themselves created. Britney would need to enter into a "voluntary" conservatorship in order to visit with her children. Kevin Federline and Jamie Spears brokered a visitation deal in which the conservatorship was required, with Jamie named as the monitor. Blair Berk worked with Jamie Spears to help obtain the conservatorship, apparently based on the information she obtained from Britney herself during their February 2007 encounter. My Request: If you have any knowledge relating to Blair Berks' relationship with either Britney or Jamie Spears, can you please post it here? I'm especially looking for links to legal documents. Thank you! #ResearchThread #BritneySuperSleuths #FreeBritney
  12. ✊🎉 How do we feel about this? Do you believe this will prevent more abusive conservatorships on California?. Should they be abolished?
  13. So I created this cover art in photoshop from Britney’s recent beach photo and it’s the most stunning shot out of all of them however I dad add her face into it to make it look more focused and went with a duotone/pop art style. This is free woman
  14. Hi! I have been (albeit silent) a user of this forum for such a long time. Hi everyone! :-) I'm Andrea. Britney's music is part of the music I grew up with. 7 years ago I made a live rendition of her song "Lucky". I finally found that recording and posted it online. I am not a youtube star: I am just posting it here because I feel somebody could resonate with this rendition in the shared love for Britney's discography, and that this might be the right place. I remember resonating with it in the search for happiness, and also feeling it as a very (and sadly) prophetic song on what was happening to her. I am happy that she is free again today, and that shadows have been lifted from her life. Warmth, Andrea
  15. On July 6, 2018 the SJB Revocable Trust underwent its first amendment since 2004. It was re-written into the "BJS Kids & Family Trust." ... This new trust was to be the recipient of all of Britney's assets upon her death. What do we know about the BJS Kids & Family Trust? I have a new theory percolating in the back of my brain ... It has to do with this new trust... and Kevin Federline. #ResearchThread #BritneySuperSleuths #FreeBritney
  16. MARINA released deluxe tracks from her album and the response to "Free Woman" is that it's about Britney.
  17. Very interesting thread that shows that *allegedly* Britney tried to terminate the conservatorship quite a few times, and even was punished for some attempts. UPD. She tried in 2014 as well =((
  18. The posts of Britney acknowledging her victory on November 12 and the video of her addressing the movement are gone! Is her Twitter next? Comment below your thoughts Related:
  19. I've revisited Britney's "Abroad" today and imagined a music video of Britney flying to Hawaii with her Tripod LOL. It couldn't be more reliable to Britney jetting off here and there like we've been seeing. Comment below if you agree and do you like the song.
  20. So Britney got a new fresh assistant! And her name is Vicky ! She went with Britney recently on trip and she introduced herself as Brit's assistant at Van Gogh exhibition!
  21. On November 12, singer songwriter Michelle Bell who wrote songs with Britney since 2002-2004 has congratulated Britney on her autonomy.
