Honoree Britney Spears attends the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on April 12, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

Britney Spears does not have to sit for a deposition, despite her father, Jamie Spears pushing for her to have her do so. A California judge made that ruling Wednesday (July 27).

As we earlier reported, Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, argued that she feels traumatized by her experience under her dad’s long-running conservatorship and that exposing her to invasive questioning via a deposition would further re-traumatize her. Per Entertainment Tonight, he asked the court, “What would a decent father do?”

Jamie’s lawyer, Alex Weingarten, called the plea “theatrics” and “attacks,” saying that Jamie cared for his daughter “beautifully.” He said Jamie deserved a chance to question Britney under oath about her public allegations against him.

Judge Brenda Penny ultimately decided that any information Jamie needs to defend himself against allegations of conservatorship abuse could be obtained from other sources, including documents and other witnesses. She also ruled that Britney would not be required to provide her home address at this time in light of the recent stalking incident involving her ex, Jason Alexander.

Jamie has been ordered to schedule his own deposition by August 12, with the judge ordering the release of documents and other evidence allegedly in his possession, including electronic surveillance of the pop star, Britney’s texts with her former attorney and 180 hours of audio recordings.

“The day of reckoning for Mr. Spears has come at least at this stage, in terms of the court ordering him to appear for his deposition,” Rosengart said on July 13. Britney’s father was suspended as conservator of Britney’s estate in September 2021. Her conservatorship was terminated two months later.

13 Britney Spears Music Videos That Influenced Pop

You can’t possibly be a fan of pop music without being a fan of Britney Spears, who dominated the industry for almost two decades. The Princess of Pop has pumped out some of the most iconic music videos that influenced how musical artists incorporate choreography with their music as well as setting fashion trends. Below, we have gathered our top 13 videos that Britney’s put out over the course of her career that have influenced the realm of pop music.

  • If U Seek Amy

    When this song came out, everyone went wild with Brit’s clever play of words with the song title (If you get it, you get it. We’re not explaining this one). Britney plays up her sex appeal in the video, wearing black lingerie and a smoky eye in a hotel room with bodies lying around her.

  • (You Drive Me) Crazy

    Melissa Joan Hart and Adrian Grenier make appearances in the music video, named after the 1999 rom-com movie Drive Me Crazy the two actors starred in. The video features epic Y2K choreographed dance battles that they just don’t do enough of anymore.

  • Me Against The Music

    The Princess and Queen of Pop got together for the most epic showdown. Britney wears a sexy suit and tie, while Madonna wears an all-white suit. Our favorite part of the video is when the two pop superstars interact with each other through a wall that they share in different rooms.

  • Womanizer

    Britney bared it all throughout her “Womanizer” music video. She wears a short black wig and black-and-white outfit in an office, completely dominating the man who thinks he’s womanizing her, but she knows just what he is. Throughout the video, her character goes through many disguises to torment the poor chap, much to our amusement.

  • Gimme More

    “It’s Britney b—h.” Britney takes a shot at her pole dancing skills in “Gimme More,” and though she never slides down the pole, we think she’s achieved the effect she was going for.

  • Stronger

    Probably the most 2000s-sounding song, “Stronger’s” music video embodies all of the aspects of the era as well: from the futuristic white and silver outfits to Britney dancing solo with a steel chair shows why she’s a legend as a singer and dancer. And of course, they incorporated a rain scene.

  • Lucky

    We would absolutely die for Britney’s luxe pink robe in “Lucky.” Channeling old Hollywood glamor, Brit plays lonely successful star, Lucky, in the video.

  • Circus

    She sure knows how to do product placement in this video, from her perfume line to Bulgari jewelry. Our favorite part of the video is when flames surround Britney and her dancers and elephants join in.

  • I'm A Slave 4 U

    Everyone in this video is a hot, sweaty mess. That doesn’t seem to bother Britney, though, who wears a pink thong over leather pants — an iconic look.

  • Work B**ch

    We love how hype “Work B—h” is, but the dancing was definitely overshadowed by the massive amounts of explosions. Also, did you peep that Beats gag ball?

  • ...Baby One More Time

    “Oh baby, baby.” Britney’s pop career was propelled with this one, at the tender age of 16. Fun fact: the video was shot at Venice High School in Los Angeles, which was the setting for Rydell High in the movie Grease.

  • Oops!...I Did It Again

    Britney went intergalactic with this one, wearing a red patent leather jumpsuit, which went down as one of the most iconic looks in pop music video history.

  • Toxic

    Buckle up, since flight attendant Britney is up to no good, taking one lucky passenger for a trip to the mile-high club. Her nude, bejeweled catsuit was shocking for the times, yet only something she could pull off. Finally, Britney was blessed to ride on the back of a motorcycle with supermodel Tyson Beckford, before she backflips off superhero style. “Toxic” is by far her most iconic music video to date.
