Britney Spears’ Brother Bryan Allegedly Tried To Control Her Friendships While She Was Away On Tour

Anthony Garza, who worked on the 40-year-old pop star’s Onyx Hotel Tour in 2004 and appeared in her Live From Miami Showtime special, made the allegations on Instagram. 

He alleged that Bryan, 44, used to cancel her plans with friends so that she would be ‘home alone’ with nothing to do between concerts.

‘We were told from the beginning that everyone would be drug tested and to keep [our] communication minimal with Britney,’ Garza alleged.

‘They told us ‘If Britney asks if you have plans… you don’t.’ ‘If Britney asks you to go somewhere …you can’t.”

It comes after last month Britney was freed from her conservatorship where her father Jamie controlled her personal and financial affairs for 13 years.

The dancer remembered one night in particular when Britney invited her tour crew to her apartment in New York City.

‘Britney’s brother told us plans were canceled and Britney would be spending the evening with family, and that if Britney called don’t answer,’ he claimed. ‘We didn’t go and we didn’t answer and Britney sat home alone.’

Garza alleged that Britney was ‘upset’ and ‘confronted’ her dancers when they didn’t attend the meet up, and was angry when told Bryan had allegedly changed her plans.

‘She was livid yelling at her brother ‘You can’t control me’ and such,’ the choreographer claimed in his social media post. ‘She made her brother apologize to us.’

In the end, Britney got to invite her friends over another night, according to Garza.

‘We had a great time,’ he recalled. ‘She is such a sweet person. She just wanted to hang out and have fun.’

Bryan has been contacted by MailOnline for a comment.

In July of 2020, Bryan spoke out about Britney’s conservatorship during an appearance on the As NOT Seen On TV podcast, where he seemed to defend the arrangement.

‘She’s been in this thing for quite some time now. Obviously there was a need for it in the beginning,’ he said.

‘Now they’ve made some changes and all we can do is hope for the best.’

To clarify that he was on board with the conservatorship, he added that it had ‘been a great thing for our family, to this point, and [we] keep hoping for the best.’

It comes after Britney’s father Jamie – who was suspended by a judge from his daughter’s conservatorship – requested that she continue to pay for his legal fees.

According to Variety on Monday, Jamie, 69, has petitioned to seek the court’s approval for his daughter to pay his lawyers who are ‘participating in winding up’ the conservatorship, following a nearly 14-year ordeal.

Throughout her conservatorship, Britney was required to pay all of her father’s legal bills while he served as her conservator along with her own legal fees to defend herself in the legal arrangement she had been trying to get out of for years.

Variety notes that Spears’ father’s attorney charges around $1,200 per hour.

The legal documents state: ‘Prompt payment on account of Jamie’s attorneys’ fees is necessary to ensure the Conservatorship can be wound up quickly and efficiently to allow Britney to take control of her life as she and Jamie desire.’

Britney’s attorney responded to the request in a statement to DailyMail.com which read: ‘Mr. Spears reaped many millions of dollars from Britney as a conservator, while paying his lawyers millions more, all from Britney’s work and hard earned money.

‘The conservatorship has been terminated and Mr. Spears was suspended ignominiously. Under the circumstances, his petition is not only legally meritless, it is an abomination. This is not what a father who loves his daughter does.’
