Britney Spears lost her first legal ruling in the lawsuit filed against her by former bodyguard Fernando Flores, but it was mostly a logistical issue.
A judge ruled against Britney's bid to have that lawsuit consolidated under the conservatorship run by her father, which still governs the pop singer.
Fernando Flores' case will instead be fought in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The judge handling Britney’s conservatorship will not hear the case. Spears motion to consolidate the lawsuit under the conservatorship was denied.
The star's camp felt it would be advantageous to have the case heard in that setting, although the exact reasons are unclear. In any event, it failed.
Flores' allegations against the pop star include that he saw her strike her two children, and that she saw Britney Spears nude parading around a lot.
Spears' camp has denied the claims. Last week, another story surfaced alleging that she was abused by Jason Trawick. This was denounced as well.
