Britney Spearsâ€™ dad has had enough of you #FreeBritney supporters sullying his good name — and heâ€™s coming for the mover and hash-tagger who started it all. According to TMZ, Jamie Spears is suing on behalf of his daughterâ€™s conservatorship, accusing Anthony Elia, the creator of the popular Absolute Britney […]
Earlier this month, Britney Spears’ mom seemed to support the theory that her daughter’s social media was being tampered with.
Now, Britney Spears’ dad is suing one of Britney’s most vocal, most visible fans for espousing that very theory.
Is he trying to shoot down lies and rumors … or just silence critics who want to end his conservatorship and Free Britney?
TMZ reports that Jamie Spears, Britney’s dad, is suing on behalf of Britney’s conservatorship.
His target isÂ Anthony Elia, the creator of the “Absolute Britney” blog — a blog that we mentioned in a recent report, in fact.
Jamie claims that the blog defamed him by speculating that his team was deliberately hiding positive comments on Britney’s social media.
Elia’s theory led some to wonder if Jamie was trying to gaslight Britney to make it seem like she had no support among her own fans.
Now, Jamie has hired celebrity lawyer Larry Stein to take Elia to court for speculating about what Jamie sees as a mere hunch.
Suing one of your daughter’s most vocal fans is a hell of a choice on any day.
But what strikes us about this is that Elia has had very positive interactions with another member of the Spears family: Lynne Spears.
Just a little over a week ago, Britney’s mom commented on the exact post that has now landed Elia in trouble with jamie.
She, too, had observed that sometimes positive comments seemed to vanish from Britney’s Instagram.
She said that it had happened to her own, and later remarked that her words suddenly reappeared after she spoke about them publicly.
We of course have no idea if there’s some IT team micromanaging Britney’s comments. It may just be the algorithm.
Being sued is not, in and of itself, evidence that that Elia was uncovering the “truth.”
But Lynne spoke about the same thing that Elia did, and he’s now being dragged to court.
Is Jamie going to sue the mother of his children? We know that they split in 2002, but they were married for 27 years.
Because Elia didn’t say much more than Lynne did on the subject, and she acknowledged that he’s a genuine fan of Britney’s.
Whether Elia was right on the money or totally pulling theories out of thin air, this seems like an odd target for Jamie to sue.
Some fans cannot help but wonder if this conservatorship has gone on for long enough.
That, more than questions about Britney’s voluntary commitment to a mental health facility earlier this year, is why cries of “Free Britney” have sprung up.
Britney’s work on her mental wellness served as a reminder to her millions of fans throughout the world that she is not, well, totally free.
We’re not saying that she’s a damsel in distress or held against her will.
But if someone has an active conservatorship, there are aspects of their lives that are managed by other people.
Britney is 37 years old. She is an amazing mother. A lot of peopleÂ
But sometimes, fans can go overboard, even when they have only the best of intentions.
(I am a Britney stan first and a person second, so I am very much included in this)
Maybe some of the cries of “Free Britney” put more pressure on Britney when she needed a break.
Maybe the constant questions about her family cause undue stress for her and her kids without doing any real good.
And maybe Britney can speak up for herself if she ever needs to.
This isn’t a soap opera. If Britney needed t cry for help, couldn’t she ask a friend or maybe even her boyfriend Sam Asghari to do some interviews?
That doesn’t mean that her most vocal and passionate fans should be silenced just for speaking about what they’re perceiving.
We wonder what Lynne will have to say about Jamie firing this warning shot across her bow.

Britney Spears has been exposing fakers, directly accusing paparazzi of editing her photos to make them look less flattering.
But photographers may not be the only ones making the world look a little worse.
Fans think that Britney’s social media team is deliberately deleting or burying positive comments — and Britney’s own mom agrees.
“So Britneyâ€™s team is deleting positive comments on her Instagram post and leaving negative ones,” alleged a fan page.
The page, absolutebritneycom, suggested that this was a conspiracy “to keep up the illusion that she needs help!”
“They were all so quick to remove all comments before,” the post continued.
“But now all the sudden,” the page pointed out. “They are leaving all negative ones but removing positive ones!”
“How much longer is this going to be?!?” the fan page asked. “This has to be human rights violation!!!!”
The post ended with the tags: “#FreeBritney #britneyspears.”
Of all of the people to engage with that conspiracy theory, Britney’s own mother, Lynne Spears, stood out.
“I canâ€™t believe you just posted this,” she began. “Because I had a friend tell me the same thing!”
Her reply continued: ‘I posted something and tried to go back and find it and none of it is in order and I couldnâ€™t find mine.”
She marveled at the idea of not being able to see her own comment “which I JUST POSTED???”
“I know you are a true fan and love her,” Lynne affirmed. “So thank you for pointing this out.”
Lynne expressed that she was grateful “because I have had others say the same.”
We realize that it may sound odd or even counterintuitive for someone’s own social media team to censor the positive comments.
This conspiracy theory gets another layer, however, as that same fan blog observed that the team seemed desperate to cover their tracks.
“Now all the sudden all the negative comments that have been there for three days on [Britneyâ€™s] Instagram are all the sudden gone,” a new post wrote.
“And now,” the post continued. “Britneyâ€™s mom comment is now number one, and also the positive comments are seen now?”
Curiouser and curiouser.
“Hmmmmmmm very interesting how I called Team B out on [their] sâ€“t these comments magically appear,” the fan page noted.
“And Britneyâ€™s mom comment is number one,” the paged continued. “Very interesting if you ask me.”
“Canâ€™t wait to see what stories are going to come out now about twisting all this around LOL,” the post mused. “But we wonâ€™t buy it.”
The page concluded, writing: “Sending you all amazing and beautiful vibes and remember GOOD ALWAYS WINS!!”
Sure enough, Lynne’s comment was suddenly displayed pretty prominently. Take a look at this screenshot:
Conspiracy theories about Britney Spears are nothing new.
People have claimed anything and everything about her, right up to her being an Illuminati clone.
But the conservatorship that her father wields over her is not a theory — that is a documented legal fact.
While Britney recently clarified that she does post her own social media, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people looking over her shoulder.
So are they really purging positive comments in an effort to gaslight Britney into thinking her own fans hate her?
There may be a more benign explanation for what fans have observed.
Instagram’s algorithm may be pretty good for figuring out what sorts of ads might work on which users, but it’s not perfect.
Like Facebook and Twitter, Instagram does not display things in chronological order.
(Only Tumblr still does that, which is probably why they only lost 30% of their users when they banned porn; people love a clean timeline more than they love boobs)
It could be that Instagram’s algorithm was, for whatever reason, very organically burying nice comments under mean ones.
Perhaps, as Lynne becomes more involved in her daughter’s conservatorship, she will be able to obtain some real answers.
