Britney Spears’ former security member Alex Vlasov, who alleged that her father Jamie Spears was spying on her personal calls and text messages, is accusing him of ‘abuse and misuses of the discovery process,’ Radar Online reported.

Alex claimed the subpoena Jamie served him was meant ‘to harass and punish Vlasov for blowing the whistle on Jamie’s wrongs, probable crimes and other misconduct while serving as a court-appointed conservator in this matter,’ the outlet revealed. 

He is also asking the judge to sanction or fine Jamie and his lawyers $10,000 for his actions.

Dailymail.com has reached out to Britney and Jamie’s reps for comment.

Per Radar Online, the motion read: ‘Mr. Spears and his counsel have improperly used this proceeding to engage in a scorched earth litigation campaign against Britney Spears and now a third-party witness, Alexander Vlasov, who courageously exposed Mr. Spears’s wrongdoing.’

‘Mr. Spears’ goals appear to have been three-fold: (i) Attempt to embarrass and intimidate his daughter; and (ii) generate wasteful legal expenses that he apparently seeks payment of from her estate, while (iii) improperly using this proceeding to harass and punish those who have led to Mr. Spears’ disgraceful removal as conservator. This is litigation vengeance of the highest order. It is improper,’ the motion read, according to Radar Online.

In September 2021, the New York Times documentary alleged that a security firm hired by Britney Spears’ father monitored the pop singer’s phone calls and text messages during the court-sanctioned conservatorship she began living under since 2008.

In Controlling Britney Spears, Alex, a former Black Box Security employee who said he worked with the singer’s team for nearly nine years, alleged the company had access to Spears’ phone and installed a listening device in her bedroom.

At the time, an attorney for Jamie Spears, who was running his daughter’s conservatorship, didn’t deny the surveillance but said it was ‘well within the parameters of the authority conferred upon him by the court.’ 

According to Vlasov, Black Box mirrored the pop singer’s phone on an iPad by logging in to her iCloud account, giving them access to all of her activity and any messages she sent, including text messages and emails. 

He told the filmmakers that he was asked to encrypt some of Spears’ text conversations so they could be sent to her father, Jamie Spears, and an employee of a business management firm he had hired.

When Vlasov questioned the monitoring, he said he was told that Spears’ communications were reviewed ‘for her own security and protection’ and that the court overseeing the conservatorship was ‘aware of it,’ as was her attorney at the time.

The monitoring included discussions between Spears and her attorney, Sam Ingham, according to Vlasov.

Their reason for minoring was looking for bad influences, looking for potential illegal activity that might happen, but they would also monitor conversations with her friends, with her mom, with her lawyer Sam Ingham. If there’s anybody that should be off limits, it should be Britney’s lawyer,’ Vlasov said.

‘Her own phone and her own private conversations were used so often to control her. I know for a fact that Jamie would confront Britney and say, “Hey why didn’t you text this person?”‘ he claimed.

‘Just because you’re in control doesn’t give you the right to treat people like property. It didn’t feel like she was being treated like a human being.’

A lawyer for Black Box Security President Edan Yemini, in a statement shown in the documentary, said, ‘Mr. Yemini and Black Box have always conducted themselves within professional, ethical and legal bounds, and they are particularly proud of their work keeping Ms. Spears safe for many years.’

According to the documentary, the audio recorder ‘captured over 180 hours of audio, including Britney’s interactions and conversations with her boyfriend and her children,’ which Vlasov apparently has at his disposal to prove the degree of surveillance Spears was under.

He suggested that Yemini was worried about the contents of the recording and asked him to wipe it clean.

‘I asked what was on it, [Yemini and another employee] seemed very nervous and said it was extremely sensitive, that nobody can ever know about this and that’s why I need to delete everything on it, so there’s no record of it,’ he recounted.

‘That raised so many red flags with me and I did not want to be complicit in whatever they were involved in, so I kept a copy because I didn’t want to delete evidence, and I don’t think it was a coincidence it was done days before she was due to meet with a court investigator.’

Vivian Thoreen, an attorney for Jamie Spears, did not discuss specific allegations, but said that his actions ‘were well within the parameters of the authority conferred upon him by the court,’ and ‘were done with knowledge and consent of Britney, her court-appointed attorney and/or the court.’

‘Jamie’s record as conservator — and the court’s approval of his actions — speak for themselves,’ Thoreen added, saying Jamie Spears had helped his daughter rehabilitate her career and improve her financial situation.

Vlasov claimed that Yemini was ‘relieved’ when the first New York Times documentary on Spears didn’t mention the surveillance she was allegedly under.

‘Edan [Yemini] was so relieved when he saw the first documentary that he wasn’t mentioned, Black Box wasn’t mentioned, Tri Star wasn’t mentioned,’ Vlasov said. ‘It was his biggest fear that security would somehow draw any attention.’

Tri Star is the entertainment group founded by Spear’s former business manager Lou Taylor, whom Vlasov claimed was involved in ‘every step that Britney took.’

The security member alleged that Spears’ father was in constant communication with the team surveilling about her every action.

‘There was a group chat with Edan, [Tri Star employee] Robin [Greenhill], and Jamie, and security where they would basically post all the movement,’ Vlasov claimed.

‘Even in the sacred place, her home, every single request was monitored and recorded. Her intimate relations were closely managed. Britney could not have someone in the privacy of her house without those three people knowing.’

The security team even allegedly supervised Spears’ medication, presenting it to her each day and requiring her to take it in their presence.

‘When I took a step back and I looked at everything, it really reminded me of somebody that was in prison and security was put in a position to be the prison guards, essentially,’ Vlasov said.

In December it was revealed that Britney will not have to testify in the ongoing conservator abuse case surrounding her father Jamie Spears.

In the case, which is being held in Los Angeles County Superior Court, an appeal Jaime and his legal team had made on the matter was denied.

The singer’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart told Dailymail.com in a statement that his camp was ‘pleased, but not surprised’ at the court’s decision to deny Jamie’s motion to compel the songstress giving a deposition and submitting documents related to the ongoing case.

In June, Jamie’s attorney Alex Weingarten called for the Hold Me Closer artist to be deposed over the ‘incendiary allegations of various factual matters’ that she had made via social media about Jamie’s actions during his 13-year stint at the head of the conservatorship, which was ended in November of 2021.

Judge Penny in July had ruled that Britney’s testimony was not an essential factor for Jaime to mount his defense in the case, and that pertinent information relating to such issues can be gotten from separate witnesses, as well as documents, TMZ reported after reviewing legal docs in the case.

Jamie’s legal team had argued that he would not be able to effectively vindicate himself of allegations made by Britney and Rosengart without deposing the pop star.

Rosengart told the court that Britney has been traumatized by her father and his longtime handling of the conservatorship, and that a deposition would only add to the trauma she has experienced.
