As previously reported by OK!, Britney and her dad, Jamie Spears, are embroiled in a legal battle. Her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, accused Jamie of paying himself at least $6 million throughout his daughter's conservatorship and eavesdropping on her. Mathew's filing was the response of Jamie's request to have his daughter continue to pay his legal fees.

According to TMZ, Jamie's attorney, Alex Weingarten, sent an email to Britney's legal team on Wednesday, January 26, asking to set a date for the deposition.

"We will also discuss scheduling Mr. Spears' deposition with you and work with you to find a mutually agreeable date for that to proceed as well," the email read, per the publication.

Alex reportedly wrote that he would like the depositions to take place in early March. He said he would agree to have his client deposed first and Britney immediately after, either the following day or the same week.

The email reportedly suggested that they "meet and confer" to agree on the dates the depositions would take place and set some ground rules. "If we have not heard from you regarding these matters by the close of business on Friday, February 4, 2022, we will proceed unilaterally," the correspondence reportedly noted.

Insiders told TMZ the 40-year-old's proposed deposition would be wide-ranging. Britney claimed in June that the conservatorship was abusive and alleged she was not allowed to get married or have a baby. Insiders told the publication the allegations will be part of the deposition.

Insiders also told the outlet that the "Lucky" singer could be questioned about "child safety and [possible] drug use," as well as other alleged issues.

Britney's 13-year conservatorship was terminated in November 2021. In September of that year, Jamie was suspended from the conservatorship.

As previously reported by OK!, Jamie's attorney recently asked that Britney's health records be unsealed. They argued that the "public has the right to know" more context about the conservatorship.

Mathew said the request was "offensive" and "highly inappropriate." He also asked the judge to refrain from filing the motion until mid-April so he has time to prepare a response.
