Ever since the release of the documentary episode in The New York Times Presents: “Framing Britney Spears” on FX and Hulu, things stirred for Britney Spears and all her fans as they try to get the Pop Princess from her decade-long conservatorship which has been deemed by many as something abusive to the extent that the former Disney Channel star is losing her civil rights and liberties.
However, things escalated more after “Controlling Britney Spears”, the continuation of the “Framing Britney Spears“ was released on September 24. It was on the said sequel where Alex Vlasov, a former member of the singer’s security team who was allegedly hired by Spears’ father and co-conservator Jamie Spears, came forward and made numerous claims concerning how they would secure Spears.
Some of the claims shocked people as they consider the intensity of the processes and deeming some of them illegal. One of the shocking claims is that Spears’ phone is heavily monitored. According to the testimonies, they would monitor conversations, messages, browsing history, as well as photos in Spears’ phone. Their reason for these is to protect Spears from possible influences and illegal activities that might happen.
Another stirring claim is that the star’s bedroom is bugged. According to Vlasov, Edan Yemini, the president of the said security team company planted an audio recording device in Spears’ bedroom which, as stated in the documentary, recorded over 180 hours of audio. Moreover, the said audio recording includes the singer’s interaction and conversations.
This does not just assert that Spears’ life is controlled that even men in the singer’s life are made to sign contracts and agreements. They have to be approved by her father that he allegedly had to have them followed by private investigators to find out if their behaviours are suited for Spears’. According to Vlasov, they did this to protect her from certain influences and losing money.
He further added that it was to help Spears gain custody of her kids which leads to another revelation and that is how Spears is scared that she would not be allowed to see her sons. The documentary shows that the singer would try to constantly distressed and scared of being accused of anything which will result in her losing her custody fight.
Additionally, it was remarked that the security team is also the one who is in charge of Spears’ medication. Vlasov further added that they would have her meds in envelopes, hand them to her, and they would not let her leave until she takes them. Such claims are enough to show that Spears’ life is heavily guarded to the extent that even her supporters and fans are allegedly being monitored as well.
In another claim by Vlasov, the #FreeBritney movement has posited a threat to the security team that they had private investigators go undercover so they could ID them and find out who they are.
