Britney Spears's father, Jamie Spears, filed a petition on Tuesday to investigate claims his daughter made in her rare court appearance last week.

In his petition, the elder Spears requested that the court "investigate the veracity of the allegations and claims made by Ms. Spears," NBC News reported.

Britney Spears spoke for roughly 25 minutes in court last week via a remote audio feed in which she excoriated the conditions of her conservatorship as well as her own family.

According to Spears, when she was made to go to a small rehab program, which she compared to "sex trafficking," she said her father "loved" having power over "someone as powerful as me." 

"He loved to control, to hurt his own daughter and 100,000 percent he loved it," she told the judge.

In her remarks, Spears said that she was forced to go through endless psychiatric evaluations, take medication that made her feel "drunk" and was not allowed to take an IUD out and have more children as she desired.

"I would honestly like to sue my family," Spears told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny.

"Ma'am, my dad and anyone involved in the conservatorship and my management who played two roles and punishing me when I said, 'no.' Ma'am, they should be in jail," she said.

NBC reported that along with the petition, Jamie Spears also filed a response expressing concerns over Jodi Montgomery, who was appointed to be Britney Spears's temporary conservator of the person in 2019.

In his response, Jamie Spears claimed that Montgomery did "not reflect her wishes" and claimed to have had no power over his daughter's personal life or medical decisions since Montgomery was appointed.

"Basically, this conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life. I've worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three year break and just you know, do what I want to do," Britney Spears said in her remarks last week.

"I feel left out and alone and I'm tired of feeling alone. I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does by having a child, a family, any of those things, and more so."
