BRITNEY Spears’ business partner Bobby Ochs claimed that the singer’s dad Jamie Spears was once “unhinged” at him and he even feared that he would “get physical.”
The celebrity restaurateur and the hitmaker worked together to open the restaurant Nyla back in 2002 — it is now closed.

At the moment, the popular entertainer is attempting to have her father removed from his lead role in the court conservatorship that has had Jamie in charge of her finances.
However, Bobby claimed to Page Six that he also doesn’t have the best memories of Jamie.
He alleged to the outlet: “I had a similar problem with Jamie. He didn’t have any say in the business, but a few days prior to the grand opening, out of the blue, he came storming into my office at 9 a.m. with an unknown young man and woman.
“He appeared to be either hungover or high, because he was literally bouncing off the walls. In front of my managers and chefs he announced that the young man and woman he was with would be hired as managers for Britney’s restaurant.

“He was so out of it and screaming, ‘Nobody is going to ruin my little girl’s place!’ He wanted the chefs replaced and a completely new menu.”
Bobby then claimed: “It turns out Jamie had met the couple he wanted to run Britney’s restaurant the night before in a random New York bar he had been drinking in.

“I explained to him I was the operating partner, and this could not happen. He was clearly unhinged, screaming and hollering — he was in my face and I was expecting any minute he was going to get physical.”
Eventually, according to Bobby, he “called Britney’s mom, Lynne, and she was not surprised. Her reaction was, ‘Oh no, not again,’ like Jamie had to be kept in check and tolerated.”

Bobby added that Jamie would apologize, but, “it’s no surprise to me Britney doesn’t want him running her life. I can’t imagine him running anything.”
The Sun requested comments but has not received a response.
A source previously told People: “She feels like he has no respect for her wishes.”

The insider added: “It’s a sad situation. Jamie has always had a tendency to shut down Britney’s requests without any discussion.”
Jamie has had full control over Britney’s financial and personal affairs since her public meltdown in 2008.

However, the mother of two has been battling in court to remove Jamie from the guardianship.
Her attorney Samuel D. Ingham III recently requested for Jamie to be suspended from his central role in the conservatorship.
Throughout the ordeal, the entertainer has shared various odd videos on Instagram[/caption]
This led to the #FreeBritney movement as fans believe the star is trying to secretly reach out for help[/caption]
He told Judge Brenda Penny: “My client has informed me that she is afraid of her father. She will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career,” Ingham told the judge.”
Judge Penny would decline to suspend Jamie from the court conservatorship – but said she would consider future petitions for his suspension or outright removal, which Britney’s lawyer is said to plan to file.
