Britney Spears’ father Jamie has it out for the creator of fansite Absolute Britney.
The fansite owner, Anthony Elia, alleged in an Instagram post that Jamie Spears and team were deleting positive comments off of Britney Spears’ Instagram account in a bid to make her appear crazy to the public. It was also alleged that Britney would potentially see the negative comments and spiral. Team Britney claims Absolute Britney wanted people to believe they’re not acting in her best interest and are harming her.
Their post read:
“So Britney’s team is deleting positive comments on her Instagram post and leaving negative ones to keep up the illusion that she needs help!” the concerned poster wrote. “They were all so quick to remove all comments before but now all the sudden they are leaving all negative ones but removing positive ones! How much longer is this going to be?!? This has to be human rights violation!!!!” The account added the hashag, “#FreeBritney”
Interestingly, Lynne Spears doubled down on the claims. She responded in that same post and said:
“I can’t believe u just posted this because I had friend tell me the same thing!” she wrote in the comments section. “I posted something and tried to go back and find it and none of it is in order and I couldn’t find mine, which I JUST POSTED???”
She added, “I know you are a true fan and love her so thank you for pointing this out because I had others say the same.”
Jamie and co. told Entertainment Tonight the allegations were untrue, however that wasn’t sufficient. According to a new report from TMZ, Jamie adamantly denies “using her social media in a way to negatively portray [Britney] and do her harm.”
TMZ says Jamie is upset Anthony reported the claims based off of a “gut feeling.”
Whether Britney is or isn’t in control of her Instagram account has been a point of contention for most of 2019. Fans are under the impression Britney does not have access to it, despite Britney saying she’s the one posting.
There have been some pretty wild claims made about Britney in 2019, like being held against her will at a mental health facility, giving her medication she didn’t want to take, taking away her smart phone and more, so it’s curious that Mr. Spears decided to hone in on this particular issue. Perhaps Lynne’s involvement in the situation – giving her stamp of approval on the Absolute Britney caption – hit too close to home.
Britney and Lynne were spotted vacationing together in Turks and Caicos last week.
You may recall Jamie Spears threatened to sue BreatheHeavy in 2009.
