Britney Spears has been under a conservatorship for a little over four years, and as time goes on we’re learning more of what that entails.
Radar is reporting that Brit Brit’s guardianship actually involves monitoring the singer’s internet and cell phone activity, even to the point that certain websites are blocked from her personal computer, and certain people remain out of her phone (contacts) and out of her life!
Says one source close to the situation, “Britney’s cell phone and internet use is restricted and heavily monitored, and this is done for her protection.”
“Britney’s father, Jamie, and her fiancé, Jason, want to make sure that her former manager, Sam Lutfi, isn’t able to contact her. Britney and Jason essentially share a cell phone, and it’s routinely checked to see who has been calling.”
“Furthermore, the cell phones have been programmed to block calls from phone numbers associated with Lutfi. Brit’s computer usage is also restricted in the sense that certain websites are blocked. Her family doesn’t want Britney reading negative stories that would upset her. Again, this is all done with love and for her well-being.”
Apparently, the restraining order Britney’s conservators filed against Lutfi, prohibiting him from contacting her and/or her children, expired earlier this year.
Says the source, “After the restraining order expired, the conservators went to extra lengths to make sure that Sam wasn’t able to contact Britney because there was no longer any criminal threat if he were to violate terms of the restraining order.”
Meanwhile, Lutfi has his own lawsuit. He’s suing both Britney and her parents, citing defamation of character and breach of contract. On a side note, Lutfi’s Twitter bio says this: “FALSELY accused of doing horrible things by horrible people. Love challenges eg: helped save the life of an incredible pop star -THE TRUTH”. Umm okay then!
I honestly think Britney’s conservatorship has done her well the last few years, but hearing things like this really doesn’t sit well with me. I can understand keeping positive people around her for the sake of her mental health and sobriety (while keeping the ‘bad’ people far away), but how can blocking websites help her in the long run, especially if they won’t be able to do this forever? In a way, they’re shielding her from reality. If she can’t deal with seeing certain things that may or may not upset her on the web, when will she? You can’t keep a bubble around her forever!
