Britney Spears‘ dad has served one of his daughter’s super fans with legal papers demanding the man show up to court.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Jamie Spears hired a process server to track down the fan, Anthony Steven, to officially serve him with the lawsuit he filed.
The process server was able to locate Steven’s mom at a New Jersey home. Jamie can now move forward with his case against the fan.
Earlier this year, Britney’s dad, Jamie Spears, sued a guy named Anthony Steven aka Anthony Elia accusing him of defamation.
Steven, who runs the Instagram account “Absolute Britney”, allegedly claimed Britney’s team had doctored her Instagram page to make her seem unstable.
That account made headlines with a post claiming that Spears’ team has been “deleting positive comments on her Instagram post and leaving negative ones to keep up the illusion that she needs help.”
Britney and Jamie Spears (who filed the lawsuit in his role as conservator over Britney) claim they “have sat by while fans accused them of numerous false and malicious things, including attempts to mislead the public with the content that appears on her social media.”
Spears claimed that Steven has “made it his mission to spread numerous false and malicious lies on the Internet about Britney, her conservatorship, and her team, including that those around Britney are harming her and not acting in her best interests.”
He said at one point, “Enough is enough. Neither Jamie nor anybody else who works with or for Britney is deleting positive comments on Instagram to negatively portray Britney, or acting in violation of anybody’s human rights. It is time that Steven understands that his words have consequences and he cannot blindly spout his baseless theories any longer.”
Spears sued for defamation and seeking unspecified damages.
