Britney Spears’ attorney, Mathew Rosengart, has strongly criticized a “false and defamatory” report that falsely connects the singer to the use of crystal meth. In a legal letter sent to the Daily Mail on Sunday, Rosengart demanded an internal investigation into the exploitation of Britney’s minor children, Sean Preston and Jayden, whom she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Rosengart highlighted that Federline had already acknowledged the falsity of the story in an interview with TMZ. The letter also revealed that Daphne Barak, the source of the report, had attempted to contact Britney and her children under false pretenses, which Rosengart described as exploitative and outrageous.
Furthermore, Britney’s representatives were not contacted prior to the publication of the story, indicating a reckless disregard for the truth. Rosengart deemed this conduct unacceptable and called for the immediate deletion and retraction of the false and defamatory story, as well as an internal investigation into the matter and the abuse suffered by Britney and her children.
The Daily Mail had not removed the story from their website at the time of writing. Daphne Barak responded to the request, stating that the footage she allegedly documented only represented a small percentage of the total and that it had been released at Federline’s request.
Federline himself condemned Barak and Erbil Gunasti, accusing them of fabricating lies and causing distress to his family and the trauma of his minor children.
