In a new document submitted to justice, Britney Spears’ lawyer accuses her father of wanting to extort her daughter for $ 2 million before withdrawing from the role of guardian he has had since 2008.
When Jamie Spears’ lawyers announced in early August that he would be ready to withdraw from the guardianship of his daughter, the camp of the singer had welcomed this decision while displaying its doubts. This week, Britney Spears’ lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, filed new documents with the court, again showing the star’s father’s murky role as a guardian. According to Mathew Rosengart, Jamie Spears would try to extort 2 million dollars from his daughter before letting go of the guardianship he has managed since 2008. According to the lawyer, Jamie Spears would only like to withdraw once all the payments have been made , stemming from the fortune of the star herself. Thus, he would resign voluntarily only after the approval of his final salaries, including $1.4 million in attorneys’ fees incurred during the year.

“Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father,” says Mathew Rosengart. “Nor does Mr. Spears have the right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting the terms of her removal,” he added. The latter demands the immediate resignation of Jamie Spears, “his departure is now inexorable”, he declared in a press release addressed to “People”. “The counterpart conditions precedent that Mr. Spears requested in his August 12, 2021 filing are inappropriate and unacceptable.” “Beyond the legal issues that necessitate his quick departure, if he truly loves his daughter, Mr. Spears should step down now, today, before he is legally suspended. This will be the most correct and decent thing to do”.
Britney Spears’ Trauma
Britney Spears is demanding the departure of her father – who has been managing her money for 13 years – but the latter, if he assured that he would retire, had explained that he wanted to do so “when the time was right” in order to ensure the “transition”. In the documents filed by the father, it was thus written that this transition would not be immediate. It was then revealed that Jamie Spears had filed yet another appeal in order to remain in control of the guardianship of his daughter until further notice, rejecting the suspension or the end of the role he has held for more than 13 years.
Mathew Rosengart responded by promising to “continue our vigorous investigation into the behavior of Mr. Spears, and others, over the past 13 years while he collected millions of dollars from his daughter’s estate.” He also said he was “disappointed” by the “shameful and reprehensible attacks underway against Mrs. Spears and others” from, according to him, his father and his lawyer. Heard at the end of June by telephone by the judge, Britney Spears had spoken for the first time publicly of her years of guardianship, saying she was “traumatized” and “depressed”. She said she was controlled by her father, abused by her family and forced into confinement.
