Britney Spears accuses father of hiring security firm to track people close to her
Britney Spears has accused her father of paying a security team to track the locations of those close to the singer.As reported by The New York Times, Spears lawyer claimed in court papers filed yesterday (January 18) that the star’s dad, Jamie Spears, had committed financial misconduct on a number of occasions over several years.Jamie was suspended from his role as his daughter’s conservator by a judge last September, with the conservatorship then being terminated completely in November after 13 years.Last month, it was reported that Jamie had asked Britney to cover his ongoing legal costs – a request the singer’s attorney Mathew Rosengart called “an abomination” and “legally meritless”.Now, in an effort to block Jamie’s plea, Britney’s lawyer has made various accusations of financial improprieties against him and others involved with the conservatorship.Among them is the allegation that Jamie paid almost $6million (£4.4m) from Britney’s estate to a security firm that obtained private phone records for the singer’s mother and others and obtained GPS “ping data” to track the locations of people close to the star.Per The New York Times‘ article, lawyer Mathew S Rosengart referred to several revelations about the handling of the conservatorship which were first reported by the outlet last September.He also cited new findings from Sherine Ebadi, an investigator at Kroll and a former FBI agent retained by Britney’s legal team.

Stunning pop star Katie said she's 'tried her best' to help him kick the habit, but it seems she's been unable to succeed.Katy dished on her beau during a chat with Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston on their Heart Breakfast radio show.She said: "He loves to floss, which thank god, because some partners don’t and it is disgusting."She admitted that although her man has "brilliant" teeth, he has a rather grim flossing habit.She said: "He has brilliant teeth, but he leaves the floss everywhere."Katie went on to recall that she has often found Bloom's used floss remnants "on the side of my bed and in the car and on the kitchen table".The Firework songstress was baffled by her partner leaving the floss around the home as there are "bins everywhere" that he could use instead.Amanda suggested Katy "train" Orlando to keep his floss to himself, but the singer replied: "Yeah, well, I’ve done my best."Despite his dental habits, Katy couldn't help gushing over Orlando as she wished her handsome man a happy 45th birthday on Instagram.She wrote: "happiest 45th to the kindest, deepest, most soulful, sexy & strong man I know,"thank you for being a constant compass, an unwavering anchor and bringing joi de vivre into every room you walk in.
