As his daughter's legal conservator, Jamie Spears will do anything to protect her. But is he taking his court-appointed powers too far?
As owner and webmaster of popular Britney Spears fan site BreatheHeavy.com, Jordan Miller has spent the past five years supporting the troubled star.
It's ironic, then, that he's about to be shut down by the pop singer herself - or at least the powers that be who control every aspect of her existence.
While Miller asserts that the sole purpose of the website is "to support the icon of our generation, Britney Spears, and to continuously stick by her through good and bad," Spears' father Jamie has taken legal action over some of the content.
"I have been battling the conservatorship Britney is currently placed under for months now," Miller wrote to fans on the site's home page Friday.
Jamie Spears does not mess around.
"When I did not conform to demands Britney’s management and father, Jamie Spears, recently put upon BreatheHeavy to stay quiet, they became angry and malicious, launching, what I feel is an unjust attack, against me and my website."
He received a legal notice from Jamie Spears' lawyers pressuring him to dismantle the site by 3 p.m. PST Friday, or face an injunction, claiming they will pursue legal action courtesy of Jamie, who is allowed to do so as her conservator.
Chalk up another few hundred grand in legal fees.
Miller also wrote that Brad Rose, a lawyer representing Spears in this case, told him in a phone call that "you are an uber-fan who’s gone a little too far."Her legal team claims the site is "replete with willful, unauthorized" use of copyrighted lyrics as well as video and audio recordings and photos of Britney Spears.
"This entire site thrives because of you, the fans, who support Britney by buying tickets to her show, merchandise and music," Miller wrote.
"Sadly, your hard-earned money that goes to supporting your favorite celebrity, is now money being used to potentially sue me, a major fan and supporter of Britney Spears, and hide fans from knowing the truth."
He added: "This conservatorship Britney is placed under, which controls every aspect of her life, is now clenching the future of her biggest fansite," Miller writes.
Because his site, a non-profitable endeavor, costs a minimum of $350 a month to run, he is asking viewers to donate funds until "the situation has been handled."
If the site remains up, Spears' legal team will pursue damages and "injunctive relief in connection with the blatant violation of her rights of publicity and privacy."
What do you think? Is Jamie Spears crossing the line with this, or does his recent progress with Britney justify any actions he believes are necessary?
