Britney Spears’ Lawyer Sent Jamie Lynn Spears A Cease And Desist
Britney Spears’ lawyer Mathew Rosengart has already helped her get out of her 13-year conservatorship, but he’s far from done. He dropped a cease and desist into the lap of Jamie Lynn Spears over what she’s said about Britney during the promo tour of her book Things I Never Said. And on top of that, Mathew filed court documents claiming that Britney’s father Jamie Spears made $6 million during the conservatorship and that $30 million was paid out to lawyers over the years.
There are numerous occasions when Britney has talked about how much her family, including her mom, Lynne Spears, have hurt her in her life, and how much they messed with her and traumatized her during the conservatorship. Still, Jamie Lynn is tossing Britney’s name around endlessly to promote her new book. Jamie Lynn alleged that Britney scared her with a knife one time and that she doesn’t know why Britney is upset with her. Britney defended herself on social media, calling Jamie Lynn a liar, and it erupted into a messy public fight between the two. Eventually, Britney said that she didn’t want to publicly fight with Jamie Lynn. And well, now Britney’s taken her fight with Jamie Lynn to the legal arena.
TMZ says that Matthew’s letter specifies that they’re ready to take “legal action” if Jamie Lynn doesn’t stop mentioning Britney on her promo tour.
Rosengart was blunt, demanding, “you cease and desist from referencing Britney derogatorily during your promotional campaign. If you fail to do so or defame her, Britney will be forced to consider and take all appropriate legal action.”
…Rosengart writes, “We write with hesitation because the last thing Britney wants is to bring more attention to your ill-timed book and its misleading or outrageous claims about her.” Rosengart also says, “Britney has not read and does not intend to read your book, she and millions of her fans were shocked to see how you have exploited her for monetary gain. She will not tolerate it, nor should she.”
And then he dumps hard on Jamie Spears … “You of all people know the abuse and wrongdoing Britney had to endure during the conservatorship, after initially growing up with a ‘ruinous,’ alcoholic father.” He points out Jamie echoed the same sentiment in her book.
And then he goes after Jamie-Lynn … “Britney was the family’s breadwinner and she also otherwise supported you. Publicly airing false or fantastical grievances is wrong, especially when designed to sell books. It is also potentially unlawful and defamatory.”
TMZ adds that this afternoon, Jamie Spears will also be dealing with the legal repercussions of crossing Britney “It’s Britney, Bitch” Spears as there’s a hearing about him trying to get his lawyer fees covered by Britney’s estate. Mathew says in legal filings that Jamie made $6 million for himself and spent over $30 million on legal expenses during Britney’s conservatorship.
Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, has filed legal docs, claiming Jamie “engaged in self-dealing, financial and business mismanagement … engaged in abusive and bullying conduct toward his daughter, deprived his daughter of fundamental civil liberties …” and that’s just for starters.
He claims Jamie got $6 million over the 13-plus years of the conservatorship. And the legal docs go on to claim Jamie had engaged in “chronic alcohol abuse impairing his ability to serve faithfully.”And there’s this … Rosengart claims some of $6 million was used by Jamie to pitch a show called, “Cookin’ Cruzin’ & Chaos.” The docs also claim to sell the show Jamie converted one of the tour busses into a food truck.
Rosengart says in addition to Jamie’s $6 million, millions and millions more were spent on lawyers to keep the conservatorship going. Rosengart says the legal fees amounted to more than $30 million. So with what Jamie made, that would bring the total to more than $36 million.
Jamie defends himself by explaining that all of the money he made was “court-approved.”
Cut to Lynne Spears cheering Britney on like, “You go, honey, git them!“, while slowly retreating into the shadows before Brit Brit comes after her next.
