Britney Spears‘ team, including her dad, Jaime, have asked the court to seal all of her personal and medical information filed with the courts because they say its release could put her and her kids “at risk.”
According to documents obtained by The Blast, her lawyers are asking the judge in her conservatorship to seal all information about to be shared with the court.
As we reported, an evaluator has been assigned to Britney’s case to assess if she’s being properly medically treated and if her father is right person to be her conservatorship. This person will also determine if the current custody of situation is good for her and her kids.
The documents say, “there is no legitimate reason for the public to have access to any information about (Britney’s) personal or medical information. Such information would undoubtedly fuel widespread publicity and the ability to obtain access to he or her children, as evidenced by the publicity surrounding this conservatorship since its inception and numerous instances of harassment.”
They continue, “release of this information would bring, “unprecedented media attention…and would be widely disseminated if filed publicly and put (Britney) and her children at risk.”
Her team believes that the release of private information about the pop star could actually fuel people to try and get closer to Britney.
Their request reads, “that publicity would be highly injurious to (Britney’s) health and well-being, as well as the health and well-being of her minor children.”
They also state that some of the specific information could harm Britney’s music career.
The lawyers point out, “competitive information and musical, artistic works and ideas, the disclosure of which would be harmful to Ms. Spears and her business and musical activities. Knowledge of this confidential information would allow others to leverage that information in future negotiations and could potentially reduced the value for Ms. Spears and her artistic and musical works.”
Interestingly, they also claim the information in the case wouldn’t even be shared with a spouse or partner.
As you know, Britney has a serious boyfriend, Sam Asghari.
We broke the story, Britney’s father has filed to expand her conservatorship in 9 other states, so that if she travels the courts will enforce it.
The states are Alabama, Arizona, District of Columbia, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia.
Mr. Spears has already filed in Hawaii and Florida.
Britney’s team is asking the court to seal the evaluators report, along with all transcripts from the hearing next month. A judge will decide if they agree or not.
Britney is back in court for a hearing in September.
