Britney Spears’ Lawyer Calls Jamie Spears’ Request for Singer to Pay His Legal Fees an “Abomination”

Mathew Rosengart, Britney Spears’ lawyer, has called Jamie Spears’ demand to have the singer’s estate continue to fund his legal bills an “abomination.”

Jamie petitioned the court to cover the costs of his legal counsel, who are “engaging in proceedings addressing Jamie’s ongoing fiduciary obligations connected to winding up” the singer’s now-ended conservatorship.

“Prompt payment on account of Jamie’s attorneys’ fees is necessary to ensure the Conservatorship can be wound up quickly and efficiently to allow Britney to take control of her life as she and Jamie desire,” the petition states.

As part of the conservatorship agreement, the singer agreed to pay both her own and her father’s legal expenses and fees if she brought him to court over the legal arrangement. 

The agreement came to an end in September, when Jamie had his judicial conservatorship terminated before being suspended from his position as the pop singer’s conservator. Britney’s conservatorship was subsequently legally revoked by an L.A. judge in November. 

The petition stems from Britney’s pleas throughout the previous decade, which reached a public peak in the last year, to have her father removed as conservator of both her person and estate. 

Britney spoke for herself in court at a June court hearing, saying she was “traumatized” by an “abusive” conservatorship that forced her to tour and alter her meds against her will, among other things. 

The pop singer earlier indicated that she was afraid of her father and that she would not perform again “if her father is in charge of her career.”
