Britney Spears' dad Jamie calls the #FreeBritney movement 'a joke' created by ...

Jamie Spears slammed the online movement, #FreeBritney, which has accused him of taking advantage of his eldest daughter's finances for years. 

The 68-year-old father-of-three, who previously made decisions about the Grammy winner's finances under a court-approved conservatorship, told The Post that the campaign 'is a joke' and he has been painted in a false light. 

'All these conspiracy theorists don't know anything. The world don't have a clue,' he insisted. 'It's up to the court of California to decide what's best for my daughter. It's no one else's business.'

He added: 'I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year. How the hell would I steal something?'  

Additionally, he condemned the aggressive behavior of some #FreeBritney supporters, who he says engage in dangerous techniques, like sending 'death threats.'  

'It's horrible. We don't want those kinds of fans,' Jamie said, while getting emotional. 'I love my daughter. I love all my kids. But this is our business. It’s private.'

Britney's father, Jamie, stepped down in September 2019, after petitioning the court to hand over the reins of her conservatorship, citing ongoing health issues.

A judge at the time approved Jamie's request and appointed Britney's longtime care manager Jodi Montgomery, as her new conservator. 

Los Angeles-based attorney Andrew Wallet was also previously a co-conservator to help manage the singer's financial assets, however he resigned in May 2019.

Wallet stated in court filings at the time that the 'conservatorship is engaged in numerous ongoing business activities requiring immediate attention', however he did not cite an exact reason for his department, reported the LA Times.

Skeptical fans of the star have suggested the arrangement is to exploit Britney, and have created the hashtag #FreeBritney on social media.

The fan-driven movement calls for Britney to be 'freed' from the conservatorship which controls many aspects of her day-to-day life.
