Britney Spears' Father Wins Legal Battle Against 'Free Britney' Blogger

James Spears wins injunction against Britney's superfan who believes the 'Hold It Against Me' singer should be freed after more than 10 years of conservatorship.

AceShowbiz - Britney Spears' dad James won an injunction against superfan and blogger Anthony Elia on Friday, December 20.

According to court papers obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Elia, who runs the Absolute Britney website, has been ordered to stop talking negatively about Britney's conservatorship, republishing, distributing or disseminating posts.

The blogger has also been forbidden from authorising or ask third parties to write on his behalf.

Jamie sued Elia as Britney's conservator back in June after receiving death threats from fans of the "Toxic" singer, claiming the blog and its social media accounts defamed him and the rest of the pop star's team.

Papers at the time suggested Elia was accused of falsely suggesting Britney's team was "using her social media in a way to negatively portray her and do her harm."

Conservatorship lawyers also asked the court for unspecified damages due to those managing Britney's interests' "business, occupation, reputation as conservator, and standing in the community."

In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, Jamie's team said, "We unequivocally deny the absurd allegations that we have promoted negative statements or deleted positive posts from Instagram and are considering appropriate action."

The case comes following a tumultuous year for the star, who has been locked in an ongoing court battle relating to Jamie's conservatorship, after she was admitted to a mental health treatment facility, and her mum Lynne insisted her ex is no longer fit to continue in the role.

In September, Jamie temporarily stepped down as the singer's conservator amid ongoing health issues and a judge appointed Britney's longtime care manager, Jodi Montgomery, as conservator as a short-term measure.

The singer has been under the conservatorship of her father since 2008, and he successfully fought off the efforts to be dismissed - prompting the #FreeBritney movement from devotees on social media who remain unhappy with the situation.
