Britney Spears 'borrows phones from strangers' to avoid tight rules of conservatorship, claims ex manager
BRITNEY Spears is forced to get creative and uses strangers' phones to make contact with her loved ones.
The Toxic singer, has been under a strict conservatorship for 13 years and has her every move closely monitored, including at one point her staff watching her get undressed.
But to get around the conservatorship's strict rules, Britney uses the phones of strangers to contact her friends and allies, according to former manager Sam Lutfi.
"I'll go years without contact," Sam told The New Yorker. "And then I'll get a call every once in a while from her in a closet."
Sam, 46, had a five year restraining order put on him by Britney's team and he admitted she has found ways to reach out to him.
"Last time she called me, she was at Ralphs, in Calabasas," Sam revealed.
"After she hung up, I got a call from the same number – it's an Asian doctor, who says, 'Wow, this is surreal, Britney just borrowed my phone'.
"Five years ago, she borrowed a phone at the gym and just made off with it."
Much like her claims in her recent explosive court hearing, Sam agreed Britney faced severe consequences if she refused to work.
He also believed the conservatorship has affected her mentally and "it blew her mind that she could just call the shots".
The pop star slammed her conservatorship during a court hearing in June, as she made a series of incriminating allegations.
Britney also called 911 "to report herself as a victim of conservatorship abuse" just hours before heading into court on June 23, the New Yorker reported.
The singer's message was sealed due to the ongoing investigation, though emergency calls in California are generally available to the public.
A source told the New Yorker that her team began texting one another frantically as they were "worried what Spears might say the next day and discussed how to prepare in the event that she went rogue."
During the court hearing, a lawyer for the conservatorship asked that they clear the courtroom and seal her testimony, leading Britney to object.
“Somebody’s done a good job at exploiting my life. I feel like it should be an open-court hearing—they should listen and hear what I have to say," she urged.
When the Princess of Pop was finally given her opportunity to speak, she told the judge: “The people who did this to me should not get away.
“Ma’am, my dad, and anyone involved in this conservatorship, and my management, who played a huge role in punishing me when I said no—Ma’am, they should be in jail.”
Britney's testimony included shocking details about how she felt "abused" and "threatened" by the conservatorship and blamed those involved and the California legal system.
She wanted her story to be shared with the public “instead of it being a hush-hush secret to benefit all of them," she explained.
“It concerns me I’ve been told I’m not allowed to expose the people who did this to me.
“All I want is to own my money, for this to end, and for my boyfriend to drive me in his f**king car," she told the court.
Despite Britney's incriminating claims about her father and the others involved with her conservatorship, they don't plan to go down without a fight.
But a friend close to the family claimed her father "taunted her as fat, a w***e and a terrible mother."
Jamie Spears, 68, allegedly "taunted" his daughter Britney, 39, about her weight, called her derogatory names, and slammed her parenting skills right after she entered the conservatorship.
A friend of the family, Jacqueline Butcher, recently spoke to the New Yorker about the alleged cruel behavior by the family patriarch.
Jacqueline explained how Britney was considered a danger to herself and her children, leading to several 5150 cases where police and ambulances rushed to her home and took her for psychiatric evaluation.
"Less than two months after the second 5150, Spears taped a guest appearance on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother. Publicly, her comeback had already begun—and it had been in the works virtually from the outset," the outlet explained.
Jacqueline was present on "one of the first days after she was released from the hospital," and she sat on the floor with Britney and her mom Lynne.
"Jamie was sitting at a desk. A flat-screen TV was playing nearby. Jamie said, ‘Baby,’” the Spears' friend remembered.
“And I thought he was going to say, ‘We love you, but you need help.’ 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.’"
Over the next few weeks, Jamie became aggressive with his daughter, Jacqueline claimed.
“He would get all in her face, spittle was flying, telling her she was a w***e and a terrible mother,” she alleged.
"Spears was told that she could see her kids again only if she cooperated. Lynne was just, like, ‘Obey Daddy and they’ll let you out,’" Jacqueline claimed.
"Spears behaved and regained limited access to her children. But Jamie got rid of anyone his daughter had been close to," they added.
After the court hearing, the appointed judge ruled that Jamie would remain Britney's conservator despite her plead for his removal.
