Britney Spears’ uncle Willie threatened her fans in a furious video during the family’s battle over her conservatorship, according to The Sun. Despite proudly plastering his Louisiana house with the pop star’s memorabilia, Willie Spears, Jamie’s brother, sent a nasty message to the #FreeBritney campaign.
Though Willie, 63, filmed the stressful footage obtained by The Sun at night, he wore sunglasses and a hat to conceal his identity. He moved closer to the camera and said aggressively, “I only got one thing to say to all you Britney motherf**kers out there: Watch what you say NOW!”
Willie is shown in another footage, initially posted to his Facebook page, seated in front of a wall covered in Britney merchandise and autographs. Among the objects taped to the cupboards are Britney’s headshots, promotional images in which she bares a lot of skin, autographs, and concert tickets.
Willie previously discussed the complicated Spears family dynamic in his 2009 biography, Britney: Inside the Dream, in which he claimed that tensions between him and Jamie, 69, were occasionally so terrible that they resorted to violence.
“One time, Jamie was drunk and tried to drive off with Britney in the car. She was no more than five years old. I tried to stop him, so I reached into the truck to grab the keys from the ignition, and he punched me.”
“We got right into it there by the car, fighting in front of her. Britney was jumping up and down, crying. Lynne had to run out to get her inside. We Spears men are known for fighting. If Britney happened to be there, so be it.”
Willie also said in the book: “At first Britney was a scared child, and you’d catch her crying, but she reached the stage when she just walked off as if it wasn’t happening. And as she got older, she would scream and curse at her parents to get them to stop fighting.”
Last month, the Sometimes singer won a significant legal success when Judge Brenda Penny approved Jamie’s suspension from conservatorship following a 13-year fight.
