The Iranian born star has been open about his feeling toward Jamie, writing via his Instagram stories on February 9, 2021.

He wrote: 'Not it's important for people to understand that I have zero respect for someone trying to control our relationship and constantly throwing obstacles our way.'

Adding: 'In my opinion Jamie is a total d**k. I won't be going into details because I've always respected our privacy but at the same time I didn't come to this country to not be able to express my opinion and freedom.'

Sam further clarified his comments that day via TMZ: 'I'm not upset at anybody, but you know what? What I said is what I said. I think he's a total d**k. That's just my opinion, but I'm not going to go into details. That's it, man. I hope [we can be on good terms one day].  Once he starts treating his daughter right, then we can be on good terms.'

He has often called Britney his lioness or posted the lioness emoji in reference to her on his Instagram. 

In the shocking testimony, Britney admitted: 'I've lied and told the whole world I'm OK and I'm happy. It's a lie. I've been in denial. I've been in shock. I am traumatized.  

'Fake it 'til you make it, but now I'm telling you the truth, OK? I'm not happy. I can't sleep. I'm depressed. I cry every day.'

The last time Spears spoke directly to the judge was in May 2019 but the court was closed to the public and her testimony was sealed and details of her mental health have never been disclosed.

Spears said she did not feel she 'was heard on any level' the last time she was able to speak to the court in 2019.

'I want changes and I want changes going forward,' she said. 'I deserve changes. I was told I have to sit down and be evaluated, again, if I want to end the conservatorship. Ma’am, I didn’t know I could petition the conservatorship to end it.

'I’m sorry for my ignorance, but I honestly didn’t know that. But honestly, but I don’t think I owe anyone to be evaluated. I’ve done more than enough. I don’t feel like I should even be in room with anyone to offend me by trying to question my capacity of intelligence, whether I need to be in this stupid conservatorship or not. I’ve done more than enough.'

Spears pleaded with the judge on Wednesday to re-evaluate the conservatorship she's been under for 13 years, with dad Jamie at the helm of her $60million fortune.

'I want this conservatorship to end. I truly believe that this conservatorship is abusive,' she said in a passionate testimony. 'I want to be able to get married to my boyfriend and have a baby but the conservatorship told me I can't do that.'

'I have an IUD (intrauterine device) inside me to prevent me from having a baby.

'I want to go to a doctor and take it out so I can have a baby but they (the conservatorship) told me no.

Sam recently spoke out about wanting to have children: 'My priorities in life are to remain humble and understand where I came from and where I'm going,' he said in February, in an interview with Forbes.

'I want to take my career to the next step when it comes to acting. I want to take my relationship to the next step, as well. I don't mind becoming a father. I want to be a young dad.' 

The status hearing did not hear any petitions, meaning that a decision was not asked for. Judge Penny said that she will set a hearing as soon as possible, so that Britney can make her petition.

Jamie Spears' lawyer, Vivian Thoreen - responding to Britney's attack on her father- told Judge Penny in a two-sentence statement that Jamie 'is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain.

She added: 'Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much.'
