According to a New York Times documentary aired Friday, Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, hired a security firm to monitor her digital communications and even secretly make audio recordings from her bedroom.

According to Alex Vlasov, a former employee of the company Black Box who spoke with the Times for its “New York Times Presents” series on Hulu, the audio apparently documented discussions the pop star had with her partner and her children.

“Just because you have power doesn’t mean you can treat people like property,” Vlasov said in the hour-long presentation. “She didn’t feel as though she was being treated as a human being.” He also told the New York Times that the security force surrounding Britney Spears felt like a “jail.”

According to a copy of the report acquired by The New York Times, the singer told a court investigator in 2016 that she couldn’t even establish friends with individuals, “particularly guys,” unless they were approved by her father.

In the documentary, Vlasov stated, “There was a fixation with the males in Britney’s life.”

While her father’s amount of control over her life has been questioned, the inner workings of Spears’ conservatorship have remained a well guarded secret. The legal agreement, which was put in place in 2008 out of concern for the star’s mental health, gave her conservators, including her father, final clearance over where she could go, what she could buy, and what medical treatments she got, among other things.

According to Vlasov, security even gave her the singer’s prescription.

It’s unclear how many security measures the Los Angeles Superior Court has approved during the last 13 years.

Vlasov began his career at Black Box as a personal assistant to the company’s founder, Edan Yemini, who was trained in the Israeli Defense Forces, according to the company’s website.

Vlasov claims he was requested to encrypt Spears’ texts that were duplicated onto an iPad hooked into her iCloud account so Yemini could provide them to Jamie Spears and Robin Greenhill, a Tri Star Sports & Entertainment executive who helped manage the singer’s career, as part of his normal duties.

“Edan would say, ‘She’s just like a child, just like any minor,’” Vlasov claimed.

In the documentary, he stated that the job left him ethically conflicted, but that he was confident in his decision to speak out.

Vlasov claimed that in 2016, Yemini provided him a USB drive containing audio recordings from Britney Spears’ bedroom and ordered him to remove the material.

In the documentary, Vlasov says, “I had them tell me what was on it.” “They appeared concerned and stated it was incredibly sensitive, that no one should ever know about it, and that I needed to delete everything on it so there would be no record of it.”

“That triggered so many red flags with me, and I didn’t want to be complicit in whatever they were up to, so I retained a copy because I didn’t want to erase evidence,” he stated.

Tish Yates, a former wardrobe manager, claimed that Greenhill was the one who exerted an unusual degree of control over the singer. According to Vlasov, Greenhill was the one who came up with the idea of mirroring Spears’ texts and photographs onto the iPad.

“Hey, is there any chance we could have sushi for dinner?” Britney would ask. Yates recalled something. “And I’d hear Robin remark things like, ‘You had sushi yesterday.’ It’s far too costly. You won’t require it again.’ They pushed harder if she pushed back a little.”

Greenhill said in a statement to HuffPost that the allegations against her were “completely false and fabricated” and “completely false and defamatory,” and that if repeated or republished by anyone, including the Huffington Post, would constitute actionable defamation, exposing you and your organization to substantial liability and damages.”

Access to Spears’ two sons was allegedly used to intimidate her into following her conservators’ orders.

Spears felt “distressed” during the 2009 “Circus” tour because she was transported through a haze of marijuana smoke as she neared the stage and feared failing a drug test and so not being allowed to see the boys, according to Yates.

Yates remarked, “The magnitude of her fear really opened my eyes.”

Felicia Culotta, Spears’ former aide and confidante, alleged in the documentary that Greenhill pushed her out of the singer’s life.

Spears made headlines earlier this year when she went up in a court hearing to make surprising charges about the conservatorship, describing it as “abusive.”

In July, the court finally allowed Spears to hire her own lawyer. Her father’s attorneys submitted a surprise request to dissolve the entire conservatorship earlier this month, following months of criticism and increased scrutiny.
