Recent speculation about Britney Spears' well-being has reached dangerous levels, a source tells ET.
A source familiar with the situation tells ET that fan accounts' theories of what's going on with the 37-year-old singer in regards to her conservatorship have gotten so out of control that law enforcement recently got involved. The source claims "there have been death threats against various team members [on Britney's conservatorship]."
The source also says that the theories that Britney is being banned from driving a vehicle or using her personal cell phone are false.
Spears is "happy and healthy," the source says, adding, "She's free."
And Britney's conservatorship, headed by her father, Jamie Spears, is now taking legal action. According to court documents obtained by ET, Jamie is suing the creator of the "Absolute Britney" blog -- headed by 29-year-old Anthony Elia from New Jersey -- on behalf of Britney's conservatorship, claiming the blog and its social media accounts are defaming him and the rest of the pop star's team. Elia is accused of falsely suggesting Britney's team is "using her social media in a way to negatively portray her and do her harm."
The conservatorship is asking the court for unspecified damages due to the alleged damage done to the conservatorship’s "business, occupation, reputation as conservator, and standing in the community." The conservatorship also asks that Elia be restrained from republishing, repeating, distributing or otherwise disseminating the posts.
"It is time for the conspiracy theories about Britney Spears’ well-being and the mob #FreeBritney movement to stop," the court documents read. "Elia has made it his mission to spread numerous false and malicious lies on the Internet about Britney, her conservatorship, and her team, including that those around Britney are harming her and not acting in her best interests. It is clear that, without any actual information about Britney and what is or is not in her well-being, [he] has made it his agenda to ensure that Britney is no longer in a conservatorship."
Meanwhile, Elia tells ET in a statement, "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."
In an Instagram post on Thursday, the blog shared a Winston Churchill quote reading, "I no longer listen to what people say, I just watch what they do. Behavior never lies."
Earlier this month, the blog accused the singer's team of only leaving negative comments on her Instagram "to keep up the illusion that she needs help," and also alleged that they were deleting positive comments.
"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!" a post from the blog's Instagram account claimed. "How much longer is this going to be?!? This has to be human rights violation!!!! #FreeBritney."
"I can't believe u just posted this because I had a friend tell me the same thing!" Lynne wrote. "I posted something and tried to go back and find it and none of it is in order and I couldn’t find mine, which I JUST POSTED???. 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?."
"We unequivocally deny the absurd allegations that we have promoted negative statements or deleted positive posts from Instagram and are considering appropriate action," the reps' statement read.
Jamie has been Britney's conservator since 2008, and he became her sole conservator this year after his former co-conservator, attorney Andrew Wallet, resigned in March. In May, Lynne requested special notice of all matters relating to her daughter's conservatorship.
