On March 30, 2011, Brand Sense filed suit against Britney Spears, Britney Brands, Jamie Spears, and their representatives. The lawsuit alleged that a representative of Britney Brands breached their licensing contract by altering payments and licensing agreements with Elizabeth Arden.
On July 1, 2011, Brand Sense filed a motion to compel the deposition of Britney Spears in the case.
“The notion that Britney Spears is mentally or emotionally unfit to testify under oath is a sham. Ms. Spears currently has the mental, emotional and physical capacity to endure the strain of a months-long international concert tour, make numerous public appearances, engage in frequent interviews with the media, participate in numerous promotional campaigns for her various business enterprises, and maintain custody of her minor children. If Ms. Spears has the capacity to do all of the above, she certainly has the capacity to engage in the rudimentary exercise of a deposition.”
In pursuit of transparency regarding why a judge agreed that Britney could not be deposed, “Brand sense also intends to take measures to have all court records in the conservatorship proceedings unsealed. Brand Sense has the right to know why Ms. Spears continues to be coddled in a conservatorship that has clearly outlived any legitimate purpose.”
On February 17, 2012, TMZ reported that the lawsuit was settled out of court. “The financial terms of the settlement are redacted”.
