Britney Spears’ Father Jamie Wants More Money Post Conservatorship
Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears hasn’t gotten enough of his daughter’s money, apparently. Britney’s lawyer says it is an “abomination” that her father is asking for even more money now that the conservatorship has been terminated.
Per gossip website TMZ, lawyer Mathew Rosengart issued a statement about Jamie’s request: “The conservatorship has been terminated and Mr. Spears was suspended ignominiously. Under the circumstances, his petition is not only legally meritless. It is an abomination. Britney poignantly testified about the pain her father caused her and this only adds to it. This is not what a father who loves his daughter does.”
Jamie Spears filed legal documents to make Britney’s estate pay for his legal fees in winding down the conservatorship, asking that it be paid in “prompt” fashion. This all comes on the heels of a report by the New York Times, alleging that Jamie received a $40,000 loan from Britney’s business manager, Tri Star Sports & Entertainment, at that time. The report also claims the estate paid for a security company that surveilled members of the #FreeBritney movement who went after Jamie and Tri Star.
Jamie’s lawyer, Alex Weingarten, said all expenditures were made with the approval of the court or Britney’s court-appointed lawyer, saying, “Jamie has nothing to hide and will therefore hide nothing.” A hearing on some of these issues is set for next month.
