Did Jamie Spears use Britney Spears’ funds to defend himself in the conservatorship legal battle?
On Friday (July 9), People obtained Los Angeles court documents that were filed by attorney Lauriann Wright, who is representing Britney’s acting personal conservator Jodi Montgomery.
Montgomery alleged that Jamie used “more than $2 million of his daughter’s money” to defend himself to remain in control of his daughter’s estate and funds.
“It is ironic that Mr. Spears now wants the conservatorship to ‘reflect her wishes,’ since it is no secret that Ms. Spears has wished her father out of her life for years,” Montgomery said.
Montgomery disputed Jamie’s claim that he is not up to date on her current affairs since “everything costs money” and that no expenditure can take place without his approval.
“Not every requested expenditure has been approved, leading to some of the concerns raised by Ms. Spears on June 23, 2021,” she concluded.
Montgomery’s filing follows her request to find a guardian ad litem for Britney. This means that she will get a person to act as an advocate to help her select a new attorney after her court-appointed lawyer Samuel Ingham petitioned the court to resign from Britney’s case. Using this method, she would not have to undergo any medical evaluation.
According to TMZ sources, Britney is seeking to hire former federal prosecutor and A-list lawyer Matthew Rosengart. The “Stronger” singer apparently signed the court document below.
“Pursuant to my statement in open court on June 23, 2021, my rights, and my desire to end the above-referenced conservatorship as to my father Jamie P. Spears, it is my desire to choose and retain my own counsel, at Greenberg, Traurig, LLP as set forth above,” the filing reads.
