Britney Spears' legal team is all about her safety and well-being. That’s why they took the bull by the horns and got restraining orders for Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib. And now they’ve turned their attention to shutting down the biggest Britney fan site out there.
Brit’s legal team has decided to force Breatheheavy.com to shut down, citing copyright infringement and profit off of their client.
Breathheavy is run by a student, who started the fan site five years ago while he was still a sophomore in high school. He's put in countless hours (and his own money) because he's a passionate Britney fan.
The site owner, Jordan, who is devastated by the copyright infringement lawsuit, tells Hollyscoop, "this is the saddest day of my life."
"It pains me to think all the support and love I've shown Britney over the last 5 years ends up in a potential law suit fueled by her power-hungry father," he tells Hollyscoop.
Jordan is currently a journalism and media studies major at the University of Las Vegas who coaches gymnastics to little kids on the side.
Brit’s lawyers told Jordan his site needed to be closed by 3PM today or face injunction. Therefore he wrote a “last letter” to fans telling them Spears’ legal team and her father Jamie Spears threatened “I will destroy your ass.”
One of the lawyers, Brad Rose, even called Miller, saying, “Britney doesn’t control her affairs. You are an uber fan who’s gone a little too far.”
Jordan is also fighting claims he is profiting from Google and Ticketmaster ads saying the revenue from those placements barely even cover the $350 expense per month to keep the site running.
In fact, in a document retrieved by Radaronline, the site’s earnings in February from Google totaled to $206.30.
Sounds like the kid is telling the truth! We understand the need for Britney’s legal team and her father to maintain control to avoid another breakdown from happening, but this seems a little much.
Jordan is being punished for creating a forum in which Britney fans can come together. Not cool!!
