  1. Probably both Lufti and Adnan Ghalib... "While Ghalib wasn’t willing to discuss what happened during Spears’ most tumultuous years, he did seem to hint that he disagrees with her conservatorship, saying no coverage of it would ever be accurate. He cryptically said of the issue: “It’s above your pay grade. It’s bigger than you.” https://www.thedailybeast.com/adnan-ghalib-the-rogue-paparazzo-who-made-britney-spears-life-a-living-hell
  2. And MTV already had an article alluding to this back in 2008: BRITNEY SPEARS HAS BEEN ROBBED, HER SELF-PROCLAIMED LAWYER INSISTS "But as for the alleged theft, Eardley has yet to name in open court or open documents what specifically has been stolen from the singer (although her father, Jamie, filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department claiming that valuables had been stolen from her home). Instead, he asked for more time. "Counsel has not had the time to obtain declarations and other evidence in support of this fact," Friday's filing reads. "Counsel will submit on Monday ... an application for leave to amend ... to include federal claims involving witness intimidation, victim intimidation and other federal claims appropriate for this court's review." "Sands claimed the theft is on a grand scale, involving racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering, and that the theft occurred prior to the conservatorship taking place and continues still." "As a result, he said, his office has been broken into and documents have been allegedly stolen and/or erased from his computer. "Lives have been threatened," Sands said. "People are being intimidated. It's terrorism. I don't want to make any accusations, but we're talking the financial r*** of Britney Spears." https://www.mtv.com/news/1582277/britney-spears-has-been-robbed-her-self-proclaimed-lawyer-insists/ So what's the real reason the media is still not properly investigating this??? They just keep bringing up Diane Sawyer, Justin Timberlake, Federline paparazzi... THIS is what needs to be investigated...
  3. I disagree. First of all, he wasn't there from day one. Britney was already on national television multiple times back in 1992 on Star Search. So NEVER discovered her whatsoever. And in this interview he does try to take credit for her success by saying, 'she recognized the fact that when we were working together that's when she had most of her success" (2:16) And what he says is false because she was co-managed for most of that period with Johnny Wright. And the album from that period that Wright wasn't a part of, In The Zone, was an album Britney co-wrote most of the tracks and composed one of the hit singles herself. (The other great album, Blackout, Rudolph wasn't a part of at all) Like the video uploaded said in the original post, the Diane Sawyer interview that damaged her mental health when she was having her 'success' (despite being a strong person) should have never happened and that's absolutely Larry Rudolph's fault.
  4. The video is from the show "The Talk", basically talking about the fact that her management should have never allowed that Diane Sawyer interview (or similar interviews like it)
  5. This guy still doesn't know how to admit he made terrible mistakes as a manger of hers (0:54) That horrible Diane Sawyer interview happened while he was her manager...
  6. I guess my only question about this is about that period of late 2004 and early 2005; Why didn't she leave Jive to start her own label or at least overhaul her contract to her advantage (notwithstanding Blackout being great) Did she (Larry Rudolph) really sign a contract at the beginning of her career that she couldn't get out of?
  7. Certainly, the 'Framing Britney' filmmakers seem to be open to investigate this topic further... "The court values the value of her estate at $60 million but there's a lot of speculation that her true net worth is much larger with royalties and intellectual property and there may be a substantial amount of money in a separate trust and I think the more that is learned about all of that, that should be really interesting. The next court hearing is March 17 and it's excepted that Britney's court-appointed counsel, Samuel Ingham, will be filing further detailed objections to the way Jamie has allegedly mismanaged her estate so I think we're really interested to see what he's objecting to and just watching more of those records become public." https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/framing-britney-spears-filmmakers-talk-ethical-challenges-of-portraying-complicated-star
  8. I mean, it's public knowledge but the Daily Beast talked about this recently too... "In doing so, the doc ignores multiple relationships that ignited the public derision toward her in earnest—like her brief dalliance with her back-up dancer, Columbus Short, and her infamously brief marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander (not of Seinfeld fame) in 2003. It was right around when Spears married Alexander, Musial notes, that more and more publications began to slap Spears with the label “white trash”—especially after reports emerged that she’d worn a baseball cap and ripped jeans down the aisle." https://www.thedailybeast.com/how-the-media-smeared-britney-spears-as-white-trash
  9. This seems contradictory... Before her Circus Tour ever started in 2009, she was already paying millions of dollars in legal fees... Britney Spears’ Legal Fees: $2.7 Million and Counting Since Father Seized Control "According to the Los Angeles Times, since Jamie Spears’ seized control of his daughter’s affairs with a legal conservatorship last year, the family has spent roughly $2.7 million in legal fees. In the months since she was deemed unfit to run her own finances, Spears and her father have rifled through 17 lawyers and law firms while racking up a sizable tab." "The $2.7 million in fees was just from the first 11 months of the conservatorship, so that tally doesn’t even include the time spent in a courtroom banning those three men from Britney’s life. Spears also spent cash on her divorce and custody settlement, a trial for her driving-without-a-license charge and a handful of civil suits." https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/britney-spears-legal-fees-2-7-million-and-counting-since-father-seized-control-247487/ We obviously know what Adam Streisand has said about her finances in 2008... "Streisand, who said he was referred to the singer by her custody lawyers at Trope and Trope, had also questioned the expertise of court-appointed co-conservator Andrew Wallet, claiming that he didn't have the expertise to handle the estate or the trust, given that Britney's estate is worth $40 million, encompasses 15 separate entities and is in the middle of a $17 million audit." https://www.mtv.com/news/1580917/britney-spears-lawyer-ejected-from-courtroom-after-judge-doesnt-recognize-him-as-her-counsel/ And this other article from that period seems relevant... "BRITNEY SPEARS HAS BEEN ROBBED, HER SELF-PROCLAIMED LAWYER INSISTS" https://www.mtv.com/news/1582277/britney-spears-has-been-robbed-her-self-proclaimed-lawyer-insists/ Does anyone have an explanation for such divergent numbers???
  10. Bottom line is that we actually have evidence Britney can write more than one melody on a musical instrument... (1:50) There is absolutely no evidence Beyonce Knowles has written any music in her entire career (or if Annet Artarni can play a musical instrument...)
  11. To me, it was up to Britney around 2004-2005 to end all this, despite Blackout being a great album. She should absolutely be commended for her resilience and her work ethic, but the consequence is constantly being scrutinized and no privacy. Her record label NEVER CARED ABOUT HER FROM THE BEGININNG. Only about how much money she could make them, which is natural and like any other record label from the very beginning of the music industry. What we know is that she was clearly battling her label in late 2004/early 2005 with Mona Lisa, Original Doll and Do Somethin', but what we don't know is if she had an opportunity at that time to re-negotiate her record deal to her advantage or leave her label to start her own. Even the owner of the Millennium Dance Studios said she had to do the Circus tour otherwise she would be sued into 'oblivion' because she didn't tour for Blackout.
  12. Even the fact that not only was Outrageous a song she didn't even want as a single , she got injured on it to me signals that it was time for a new direction for her. And she seemed to agree with this idea given all the commotion with her label with Mona Lisa, Original Doll and Do Somethin. There was clear dissention between she and her label back then in late 2004/early 2005. So did she have a chance to re-structure her deal to her advantage or leave her label entirely back then? Or was she tied in to an inflexible contract that Larry Rudolph made her sign near the beginning of her career?
  13. This is my whole point of contention in all of this. Did Britney have a chance to either re-structure her record deal or leave her label all-together in late 2004- early 2005? I don't care how much her label promoted her. While Britney worked extremely hard, her label was concerned about making money first, not her mental health or even her overall health during ANY of the years she was a star. She was the one battling her label back in late 2004 and early 2005? Why did she just seemingly continue to approach the business the same way after that? If Britney and Kevin moved to Idaho, Montana or New Mexico would anyone care about the relationship? It's baffling in retrospect to believe she was ever going to enjoy being a wife and mother during that time while still living in the spotlight glare of Los Angeles and always being scrutinized and photographed. But we know she never left the spotlight likely because of her contractual obligations. So the question for me always comes back to 2004-2005.
  14. There are some who say that "they clearly remember Alli Sims was using Britney's connections and fame to launch a music career WHILE Britney was going through her breakdown." To be fair, she was young too but its worth taking into account. One thing for sure is that Britney was not addicted to (or using) illicit drugs. She always tested negative during that year. To me, it was up to Britney to get out of this after In The Zone in the years 2004-2005. She herself was battling her label; I don't really understand why she at the least did not overhaul her record contract to her advantage given her past success, if not leave her label to start her own if she wanted to keep releasing music. Did Larry Rudolph really have her sign an unyielding long-term contract near the beginning of her career?
  15. That's not entirely accurate. IF an objective third party such as a financial planning group was named her TEMPORARY conservator at the time, it could have helped stop her downward spiral. I never argued that the conservatorship should have been permanent or her father be her conservator. And of course I didn't know that the judge in this case was corrupt. The ONLY thing I truly critique Britney with is late 2004-early 2005. If, after all the success you brought to your label, you are battling your label for artistic autonomy for her career like Britney blatantly was during that time, then you simply cannot recoil. You strongly re-negotiate your contract or leave to start your own label with your own rules, if you want to keep making music. Staying in the spotlight due to contractual obligations to continue to be scrutinized damaged her mental health as much as anything.
