Britney Spears fans ‘are ending VIOLENT THREATS to her team’ after dad sued blogger for defamation

Just a day after it was reported that the conservatorship looking over Britney Spears sued a blogger for defamation, fans are now making violent threats against her team.

The lawsuit was filed against Anthony Steven, a.k.a. Anthony Elia, who runs the Absolute Britney website and is ‘one of the loudest voices’ in the #FreeBritney movement.

A new report from Page Six claims that lawsuit was filed because Elia’s posts lead to other Spears fans sending violent threats to the conservatorship team, including the singer’s father, Jamie Spears.

‘They’re starting to make violent threats against these people,’ a source close to the 37 year old singer said, adding the authorities have become involved.

‘Some of these people believe everything they’re reading, and we do need people to realize that their words have consequences,’ the source added.

‘He has made it his mission to spread numerous falsehoods and malicious lies on the Internet about Britney, her conservatorship and her team, including that those around Britney are harming her or not acting in her best interest,’ the lawsuit claims.

‘It’s clear that without any actual information about Britney, and what is or is not in her well being, he’s made it his agenda to ensure that Britney is no longer in a conservatorship,’ the lawsuit continues.

Once such claim came from an Instagram post on June 14, where he claimed that Britney’s team was censoring her Instagram comments.

‘So Britney’s team is deleting positive comments on her Instagram post and leaving negative ones to keep up the illusion that she needs help!’ he began.

‘They were all so quick to remove all comments before but now all the sudden they are leaving all negative ones but removing positive ones!’ the suit continued.

‘How much longer is this going to be?!? This has to be human rights violation!!!!’ Elia’s statement concluded, with the #FreeBritney #britneyspears hashtags.

Elia’s post got even more visibility when Spears’ mother, Lynne Spears, commented on the post, stating, ‘I know you are a true fan and love her so thank you for pointing this out because I have had others say the same.’

The lawsuit claimed that neither Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, who is part of the conservatorship, nor Britney are deleting positive comments.

‘Neither Jamie or Britney is deleting positive comments on Instagram to negatively portray Britney or acting in violation of any human rights,’ the suit states.

Elia, a 29 year old from New Jersey, also released a statement regarding the lawsuit.

‘I am forever blessed and I have faith that good always wins. I have no further comments, except that I love Britney and the Britney army,’ he said.
