Britney Spears's ex-husband Kevin Federline has responded to claims Jamie Spears bugged the singer's home during her conservatorship, recording private conversations including those with her two sons.
The bombshell allegations were first made by a former member of Britney's security team in the New York Times documentary Controlling Britney Spears, which was released on Friday.
Now Federline, who is the father of Britney's boys, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, has commented about the allegations via his attorney.
"I think that would be pretty outrageous and Kevin would be upset about that," lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan told Page Six.
"It would be extremely inappropriate for a parent, let alone a grandparent, to clandestinely procure recordings between a parent and their children. Regardless of whether or not the grandfather, in this case Jamie, is a conservator or not."

The lawyer also pointed out that, if true, recording the underage boys who cannot give consent would be illegal in the state of California, according to the publication.
Britney's lawyer Mathew Rosengart said in a court filing on Monday that the allegations Jamie recorded his daughter's private conversations is "horrifying".
The attorney called for an investigation into the claims, described as "unconscionable invasions of his adult daughter's privacy."
"Specifically, the [New York] Times reported that [Jamie] and others 'ran an intense surveillance apparatus that monitored [Ms Spears's] communications' and also evidently captured attorney-client communications with her prior lawyer … a sacrosanct part of the legal system," Rosengart told the court.
This is the NYT's second documentary on the Spears conservatorship case and the singer hasn't said much about the first one, called Framing Britney Spears — credited with re-igniting the #FreeBritney movement.
Britney herself made a rare comment about one of the many documentaries being released ahead of her biggest court date yet on Wednesday, but it's not clear which one.
Controlling Britney Spears was released on Friday, while on Sunday CNN aired Toxic: Britney Spears' Battle for Freedom and later this week Netflix release their documentary Britney vs Spears.
"It's really crazy guys ... I watched a little bit of the last documentary and I must say I scratched my head a couple of times," Britney said on Instagram.
"I really try to disassociate myself from the drama !!! Number one ... that's the past !!! Number two ... can the dialogue get any classier??? Number three ... wow they used the most beautiful footage of me in the world !!! What can I say .. the EFFORT on their part!!!"https://www.instagram.com/reel/CUWBw4TM6Np/?utm_source=ig_embed&
Earlier this month, Britney's father suddenly petitioned to terminate the conservatorship — a major change of heart from the man who had run it since 2008, controlling all of the financial decisions for her estate.
It's unclear if this week's hearing will address the termination of the conservatorship altogether or if it will solely focus on the role of Jamie.
