Britney Spears’ Lawyer Says That Her Father Wants $2 Million To Step Down As Her Conservator

September 1, 2021 / Posted by:

Last month, Jamie Spears made the #FreeBritney movement reach for a celebratory bottle of sparkling Frapp when he said in court papers that he’s “willing” to step down as Britney Spears co-conservator after 13 years. But then he made bottles of sparkling Frapp immediately go flat by adding that he’ll give up his co-conservator gig when the “time is right” and that “transition needs to be orderly and include a resolution of matters pending before the Court.” And according to Britney Spears’ lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, the “time” that is right for Daddy Spears to go away is whatever time it is when $2 million of his daughter’s money hits his checking account. Because Mathew has filed papers claiming that Daddy Spears is trying to shake Brit Brit down for even more money. Who knows if Daddy Spears will get a couple of millions to exit stage left from his daughter’s conservatorship, but I do know he’ll probably win Father of the Year for the second year in a row.

Daddy Spears is currently in charge of Britney’s money, and after she let the court know that she’s sick of him controlling her life and her fortune, Mathew Rosengart filed a petition to officially request that he be pushed out as co-conservator. Mathew followed that up by filing another petition, saying that Daddy Spears needs to be fired immediately and that they are working on a financial investigation into how exactly he spent Britney’s money. Mathew mentioned a few of Daddy Spears’ alleged shady money moves, like Daddy Spears wanting $1.3 million in attorney fees, including $541,000 for “media matters.” And BuzzFeed says that on Monday, Mathew kept the petition filing going by submitting another petition to the court and this one claims that Daddy Spears is trying to extort his daughter and Mathew’s not having it.

“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,” Rosengart wrote. “Mr. Spears’s blatant attempt to barter suspension and removal in exchange for approximately $2 million in payments, on top of the millions already reaped from Ms. Spears’s estate by Mr. Spears and his associates, is a non-starter.”

Daddy Spears apparently plans to use some of that $2 million to pay his attorneys.

The petition adds that Brit Brit would like Daddy Spears to GTFO on his own, but if he doesn’t and continues to demand a Bye Bitch severance package, she’d like the court to suspend him by September 29, which is the date of her next hearing.

Here is Mathew’s filing, which also includes a line about how Daddy Spears’ idea of an “orderly transition” is for someone to hand him a Father of the Year trophy and a gold star for his service. “Um, is that trophy and gold star worth at least $1 million each?” is probably what Daddy Spears is asking right now.

In a statement to TMZ, Mathew stayed on Daddy Spears’ ass and told him to bow out gracefully already:

“Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father. Nor does Mr. Spears have the right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting the terms of his removal. This is not about him, it is about the best interests of his daughter, which as a matter of law, mandate his removal.

Even putting aside the legal issues requiring his prompt removal, if he loves his daughter, Mr. Spears should resign now, today, before he is suspended. It would be the correct and decent thing to do.”

When I was a teenager and got dumped by my boyfriend at the time in front of my mom’s house, I dropped to my knees and begged him not to leave me before melodramatically throwing myself on the hood of his car. And even I’m looking at Daddy Spears like, “Let it go, bitch, you’re embarrassing yourself even more.” And okay, okay that embarrassing break-up moment happened last week.
