Britney Spears (39) would not only have been made financially utterly dependent on her father Jamie (69), who has been her curator since 2008, he would also have given her a lot of verbal blows. He is said to have told his daughter several times that she was too fat to perform, was a bad mother and even called her a whore. This reports ‘The New Yorker.
The interview, which appeared last weekend, was written by investigative journalist Ronan Farrow, the son of actress Mia Farrow. He also wrote the devastating story about Harvey Weinstein. Thanks to Ronan’s article, more women at the time dared to speak out against Weinstein. In the piece about Britney’s curatorship, he speaks with a good friend of the Spears family, Jacqueline Butcher.
According to Jacqueline, he greatly disparaged Britney after being appointed as a trustee. “I’ve even heard him shout that he was Britney Spears because he was now in control. He would tell his child that he would put her on a diet and hire a trainer so she would look tight again. He also said that she could only see her children if she followed his orders. Those words made me sick to my stomach.”
