The Britney Spears conservatorship story has taken another twist after a US judge ordered her father to appear in court for questioning.

The pop star was released from the 14-year-long conservatorship - which allowed her father Jamie to control her finances and to a large degree, her life - last November.

Since then, she has gotten married to fiance Sam Asghari.

However, it seems that her 70-year-old dad has some questions to answer in court, and he will be deposed in the next 30 days, according to reports.

He must also produce all of the documentation that his daughter's legal team have asked for.

Her lawyer Matthew Rosengart said: "Today was a very good day in court for Britney Spears, and it was a very good day for justice. Mr. Spears, as the court determined, has now effectively been hiding from his deposition for no less than nine months.

"The day of reckoning for Mr Spears has come… we have seen nothing but obstruction and stone-walling from him."

"His daughter is finally free," he added. "His daughter is married. His daughter is happy. His daughter wants to move on. Mr Spears, if he loves his daughter as he professes he does, should leave her alone."

Jamie Spears had previously denied allegations that he had 'spied' on Britney using listening devices in her bedroom. Employees of Black Box Security, who were tasked with protecting her, testified that Jamie had asked them to place a "secret recording device" taped to furniture in her room. He dismissed the allegations as 'nonsense'.
