Days after Britney Spears’ former assistant Alli Sims was served commando-style at a Hollywood party, a bodyguard for the singer was handed deposition papers as well.
Damon Shippen, who has served as a bodyguard for Spears, was given legal papers by Aaron Cohen’s IMS Security, a company of Israeli-style security agents, Monday night.
A source close to Kevin Federline told “Access Hollywood” the papers are related to Britney’s parenting. Shippen will be required, like Sims, to testify in court over Britney’s behavior with her children.
It is unclear if Shippen is still in the employment of Spears. He has not been spotted with the star in three weeks and sources say he may be working for another high profile female celebrity.
Shippen seemed to drop out of the spotlight after reports surfaced he was romancing the “Toxic” singing superstar last month.
Prior to allegations of a relationship, Shippen worked for Spears while she was married to Kevin Federline. He is the bodyguard who helped Britney catch her oldest child, Sean Preston, when she tripped while carrying him in New York City.
On Monday, the source told “Access Hollywood” that in addition to Sims, about 10 people were expected to be served with legal papers, ordering them to testify on Britney’s parenting skills.
Britney’s parenting has been called into question by people other than Kevin Federline and his legal team.
Last year, Child Protection Services was called to Spears' home at the time (with Federline) because Sean Preston had fallen out of a high chair.
On another occasion, Spears was caught by paparazzi with the baby on her lap, not in a car seat, as she drove around Los Angeles.
Another incident chronicled the singer driving Sean P in Malibu, in the back seat of her Mini Cooper, exposed to the elements.
Most recently, Spears has been criticized for taking her children out for dinners, past 10 in the evening.
“Access Hollywood” was awaiting comment from reps for Kevin Federline, Alli Sims and Spears.
