Jamie Spears filed a motion on Wednesday asking the court to order an investigation into the allegations made by his daughter during her 23-minute address at the guardianship hearing last week. Britney Spears had asked if her statements in a Los Angeles court could be shared publicly.
“I shouldn’t be in a guardianship if I can work and provide the money and work for myself and pay other people,” Spears said. “It does not mean anything.”
She told the judge that she was constantly working and surrounded by a whole staff on her payroll, but was not even allowed to control her own fortune.
“What state allows people to own another person’s money and account and threaten them by saying, ‘You can’t spend your money unless we do what we want you to do’? ‘ she asked the court. “I pay them.”
Those who invite Spears to speak to Congress are not exempt from their own public scandal.
The Justice Department investigated Gaetz for obstructing justice, according to several reports last month, the latest development in a sex trafficking investigation against an associate of the congressman. Gaetz has firmly denied any allegation that he has broken the law.
He told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” earlier this year that it was “a horrific allegation” and “a lie” that he crossed state borders with a 17-year-old girl for sexual purposes. But his partner Joel Greenberg pleaded guilty to six counts and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.
Meanwhile, Greene, already stripped of her duties on the committee, was denounced by the GOP leadership last month for remarks made comparing stickers indicating someone was vaccinated against the yellow patches of the Star of David whom the Jews were forced to wear by the Nazi regime during the Holocaust.
