“Whatever merits his strategy might have had years ago when Britney was trying to restart her career, at this point in her life when she is trying to regain some measure of personal autonomy, Britney welcomes and appreciates the informed support of her many fans,” the document says.
It continues, “Britney herself is vehemently opposed to this effort by her father to keep her legal struggle hidden away in the closet as a family secret.”
As for her father’s call for privacy in this situation, her lawyer says he gave up that right when he took control of her affairs.
“The moment that James obtained from this Court the power to handle Britney’s affairs on her behalf, he surrendered a large measure of privacy as to the manner in which he exercises that power.”
Bottom line — Britney’s lawyers say, “Transparency is an essential component in order for this Court to earn and retain the public’s confidence with respect to protective proceedings like this one.
Adding, “In this case, it is not an exaggeration to say that the whole world is watching.”
