The father of pop royalty Britney Spears, Jamie, is reportedly under investigation by the FBI for claiming he wiretapped his daughter’s bedroom to secretly monitor her movements, messages and calls as that conservative.
Spears’ father was reportedly in charge of setting up the surveillance that followed Britney’s interactions in her bedroom, according to an explosive New York Times documentary titled “Controlling Britney Spears,” which FX and Hulu debuted on Friday. , noted the Independent.
The allegations stemming from the documentary follow-up of “Framing Britney Spears” heard by a former member of Britney’s longtime security team, who claims that her father installed an audio recording device that monitored 180 hours of his conversations with her boyfriend, her children, as well as those with Samuel Ingham, her former lawyer.

On Monday, Britney’s camp further accused Jamie of “gruesome and inadmissible invasions” of the pop star’s privacy, urging the court to immediately remove him from guardianship.
