BRITNEY Spears told her lawyer her father threatened to take away her kids — in bombshell recordings to be aired for the first time.
Harrowing calls and messages from the singer concerned about the legal hold dad Jamie has over her will be broadcast in a Netflix documentary next week.
Britney Vs Spears includes new details of the fallout from the 2008 court order imposed on the US pop star.
In one voicemail from 2009, Britney leaves a message for her lawyer about her sons, Sean Preston, then aged three, and two-year-old Jayden James.
She says: “I called you earlier. I’m calling again because I just wanted to make sure that, during the process of eliminating the conservatorship, that my father has threatened me several times, that, you know, he’ll take my children away.”
She adds: “I just want to be guaranteed that everything will be fine with the process and that you guys are taking care of everything, that things will stay the same as far as my custodial time. That’s it, bye.”
At the time, Britney and her dancer ex-husband Kevin Federline had joint custody.
However in 2019 Britney’s share was cut to 30 per cent. His lawyer said it reflected “what Kevin believes is in the children’s best interest”.
Britney’s dad was granted the controversial conservatorship after the public breakdown which saw her shave her head.
But the 69-year-old succumbed to increasing pressure this month and filed a petition to end the 13-year order.
However the singer’s lawyers have accused him of trying to “extort” money from his daughter.
The next court date is scheduled for next Wednesday — the day after the new documentary airs.
This week Britney posted on Instagram: “There is nothing stronger than the bond between a mother and her son.”
She added of her boys, now 16 and 15: “I’m so incredibly blessed to have these two little men in my life.”
Last night her lawyer filed court papers in LA arguing the agreement be terminated without a medical evaluation.
A judge will rule in due course.
Britney has been unable to make decisions on her private life without her dad’s approval.
She previously called it “abuse”.
