Britney Spears’ father wants $2m to step down as her conservator

"The only honourable, decent, and humane course of action is for Mr Spears to resign now," says Spears' lawyer.

Britney Spears’ lawyer Mathew Rosengart on Tuesday claimed in court filings that the singer’s father wanted $2m in fees for his attorneys and experts handling the media in exchange for stepping down as her conservator.

Britney called the conservatorship abusive, claimed her family and everyone involved in it should be “in jail” for the distress they have caused her.

It seemed an ugly battle was going to be publicly played out as Britney hired new legal representation, preparing to take her father to court once again. Jamie Spears refused to step down initially, however, finally agreed to do so.

Spears’ father filed his response to his daughter’s petition for his suspension with the Los Angeles Superior Court, announcing his decision to step down, though his attorney states that there are “no actual grounds for suspending or removing” him.

is attorney cites the “public battle with his daughter” as his reasoning for stepping down, now, however, he reportedly wants to extract a sizable sum from his daughter before he is actually willing to do so.

Rosengart made the allegations in the 12-page court filing that stated: “Mr Spears’s blatant attempt to barter suspension and removal in exchange for approximately $2m in payments, on top of the millions already reaped from Ms Spears’s estate by Mr Spears and his associates, is a non-starter.”

“Regardless of the past, Mr Spears and his counsel are now on notice: the status quo is no longer tolerable, and Britney Spears will not be extorted,” he added.

Jamie Spears has claimed he is owed payments for legal work addressing “public, media, and social media attention” and for “continuing to do my best to keep current regarding the music, advertising, and entertainment business.”

“The only honourable, decent, and humane course of action is for Mr Spears to resign now, provide all necessary information to evaluate his accounting, and, if matters cannot be resolved consensually, to try to defend his accounting,” added Rosengart.
