The Baby… One More Time singer, who has been outspoken about her wish for Jamie Spears to lose her position as a conservator of her affairs, allegedly “worried” her team when she requested a new iPhone.

Subsequently, her security personnel were asked to put “parental controls” on the device so that other people could access her text messages, calls and browsing history, according to the documentary Controlling Britney Spears.

Speaking in the film, which opened on Friday, Alex Vlasov, who worked for Black Box Security from 2012 to 2021, said: “Britney wanted to have an iPhone… and that was a big problem. They were all worried.

“(My boss) Edan (Yemini) came up to me and asked, ‘Is there any monitoring service for an iPhone that you know of?’ And I said, ‘What do you mean?’ And he says, ‘Well, parental controls. Is there a way to put parental controls on an iPhone?

“And that’s when Edan explained to me that Britney’s communication is monitored for her own safety and security.”

Alex questioned “the legality” of the request and was told that the court was “aware” of the control of her communications, which ultimately led to Britney’s phone being cloned into an iPad, which was kept in a safe.

He continued: “(Edan) said: ‘Yes, the court is aware of this. Britney’s lawyer knows. This is for your safety. It’s for your protection. ‘

“And then Robin (Greenhill, Britney’s management team at Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group) came up with the idea, ‘Why don’t we grab an iPad, log in with an iCloud there, the same iCloud as Britney use on your phone, and that would reflect all activity? ‘You could see all messages, all FaceTime calls, notes, browser history, photos.

“Their reason for monitoring was to look for bad influence, to look for possible illegal activity that could occur, but they also monitored conversations with their friends, with their mother, with their lawyer Sam Ingham. If there is anyone who should be off limits, it should be Britney’s attorney. “

The Tri Star Sports & Entertainment group called the allegations “false,” but Jamie’s attorney, Vivian Lee Thoreen, insisted that her actions “were carried out with the knowledge and consent of Britney, her court-appointed attorney, and / or the court”.

Edan’s attorney said: “Black Box has always conducted itself within professional, ethical and legal limits, and they are particularly proud of their work to keep Ms. Spears safe for many years.”

The singer’s new attorney, Mathew Rosengart, has promised to “fully and aggressively investigate these matters.”

He added: “Intercepting or monitoring Britney’s communications, especially the sacrosanct attorney-client communications, represents a shameful and shocking violation of her rights to privacy and civil liberties.”
