Team Spears Takes on Fan Site
It’s the battle of superstar’s camp versus the superfan. And right now everyone is breathing heavy.
Lawyers for Jamie Spears, who serves as conservator for daughter Britney Spears, are threatening Spears’ unofficial fan site BreatheHeavy.com with a legal injunction for allegedly infringing on copyrights related to the Circus singer and unfairly profiting off of her, according to the site’s owner, Jordan Miller.
As a result, Miller claims on his website that “Jamie Spears’ lawyers (are) pressuring me to close Breatheheavy.com by 3 p.m. PST today.”
Miller has followed up with a breathless appeal for help to his fans on the site.
“This conservatorship Britney is placed under, which controls every aspect of her life, is now clenching the future of her biggest Fansite,” Miller writes. “I’m prepared to fight, but I need to know that you guys are willing to fight with me.”
Rather than money, Miller claims the real issue is that he has continued to criticize Jamie Spears. In the post he says that Jamie “is desperarely trying to hide the truth about Britney’s imprisonment, and shut anyone up who disagrees.”
Miller claims that Jamie Spears told him in a phone conversation “I will destroy your ass.”
While a rep for Spears did not immediately return calls for comment, a source in Britney’s camp tells Celebuzz that this is action against Miller is “not about a personal thing. It’s about copyright infringement. He’s not respectful of copyright.”
The source adds that Breatheheavy.com has also featured “mean and deragatory” statements against Jamie Spears.
Miller claims he doesn’t profit – in fact he loses money – on the website. He additionally wants his readers to help pay for the website “since I am no longer allowed to run ads.” He lists the price tag at $350 a month and features a paypal section to make payments.
As Miller says in his sign-off on the website: “This is not the end.”
