EXCLUSIVE: Britney Spears’ mom Lynne ‘fears for her safety’ as she sues ‘phony publicist’ Jacob Diamond who ‘infiltrated’ her inner circle to get close to her pop star daughter
Lynne Spears is suing a ‘fake publicist’ and has filed for a restraining order after he allegedly infiltrated her close circle to befriend and take advantage of daughter Britney Spears, DailyMail.com can reveal.
The bombshell lawsuit was filed last month against Jacob Diamond, a self-described author, actor and publicist, who was exposed for pretending to be close to the likes of Khloe Kardashian, Lisa Rinna and Paris Hilton.
The lawsuit, filed in court in Amite, Louisiana, by Lynne, 68, and her friends Jansen Fitz, 40, and Tatum Solis, 48, claims they met Diamond in 2019 and he talked his way into their ‘small social circle’ for the next ‘three years or so’.
The lawsuit states that in July 2023, Diamond began acting “erratically and aggressively” toward them and their young children, and in one instance threatened to call the police “to have him forcibly removed from their family home.”
Since then, they claim Diamond, 41, has published posts on social media that portray them in an “excessively negative light” and are now “fearing for their safety.”

The lawsuit adds that Diamond posted a photo of Lynne, Solis, Fitz and three others at dinner within hours of the lawsuit being filed and “specifically refers to that occasion as ‘Satan’s dinner’ and adds at the end of the post admits ‘he was there that evening too, with a fatal result.’
The post remains on Diamond’s Instagram page, but without the caption, although fans had already taken a screenshot of it, which read: ‘The night the dominoes started to fall. Nightlife as I knew it changed forever. Every woman in this photo turned on me.”
The lawsuit states that Diamond began “acting creepily and aggressively” toward Lynne and her friends in July 2023
Spears, Solis and Fitz were successful in obtaining a temporary restraining order for “harassing, stalking, communicating” and “preventing harm or injury” to the plaintiffs, preventing Diamond from coming within 100 yards of them and their homes .
The lawsuit goes on to say that Diamond’s true intention was to get the 41-year-old Britney.
They say Diamond – who describes himself on his LinkedIn page as “boy band member turned actor turned author” – wanted to “infiltrate” their social circle in an attempt to, or in the hope that he could establish a person (sic) relationship with one of the plaintiff’s daughters.’
That daughter is believed to be Britney, although she is not named in the lawsuit.
They say he “wanted to gain at least a small amount of fame and/or fame.”
“Plaintiffs further allege that Defendant was also motivated by the possibility or prospect of some monetary gain if he were able to develop the personal relationship mentioned above.”
The lawsuit goes on to say that Diamond used their “name and images” on social media without permission, making posts “more aggressive, derogatory and defamatory.”
The restraining order also banned him from posting anything derogatory about them or implying he has a relationship with them, while all photos he did not own were ordered to be removed.
The lawsuit states that Diamond posted a group photo within hours of the lawsuit being filed and “specifically refers to that occasion as ‘Satan’s dinner’ and suggests at the end of the post that ‘(Satan) was there that night too.’ , with a fatal result”.’ He removed the caption, but the photo remains
The group succeeded in obtaining a temporary restraining order for “harassing, stalking, communicating” and “preventing harm or injury” against the plaintiffs, preventing Diamond from coming within 100 meters of them and their homes.

Despite the order, Diamond’s partner Derek Larabell has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay his attorney fees, which has so far raised only $510 of the $5,000 goal.
He makes some wild claims about Lynne and her friends, and also claimed that Caitlyn Jenner’s lawyer contacted Diamond to personally work on the case for free.
It reads: “A major Los Angeles law firm representing Caitlyn Jenner and other celebrities heard about his case and contacted him to work with him for free. They have done a lot of work on his case, but cannot practice law and represent him in Louisiana.
“We found a high-powered attorney in Baton Rouge who has appeared in several Netflix documentaries and would also represent him. He took the opportunity to speak to the media about Jacob’s case and take on Lynne Spears, Tatum Solis and Jansen Fitz.
“So many of us worked so hard to free #Britney and help her give her voice back. I ask for your help to ensure that Jacob is not permanently silenced either. If you can donate $20, $10 or $5, it would mean a lot to us… so that Jacob can represent himself in court against Lynne Spears’ attorney.”

The case will be heard Monday, when a judge will decide whether to make the restraining order permanent.
Diamond’s Instagram is full of photos of him with Lynne, including one in her home by the fireplace, captioned: “Britney/Lynne’s beautiful English cobblestone fireplace at Serenity, the estate Britney built for Lynne in 2001 in Kentwood, LA .’
Yet Diamond has been accused of being a “fake publicist” following a 2019 revelation Page six.
He claimed a string of A-listers showed up for the launch of his self-published book ‘Sunny Collins: Sex in the Garden of Fame and Fortune’. He also lied about a gourmet spread prepared by chef Wolfgang Puck and sponsored by Amazon.
All the big names denied ever being willing to attend the alleged mega-party — or even knowing who he was — which Page Six called the “Fyre Festival of Book Releases.”
The new lawsuit comes weeks after Lynne denied selling her daughter’s belongings after fans accused the mother of profiting from Britney memorabilia.
“I’m not sure who told you I got rid of your dolls and diaries, but I would never do that!” Lynne told Britney in an Instagram post.
She continued, “That would be cruel because I know how much they mean to you. They are also special to me because of the years we spent collecting them.’
