Britney Spears goes wild with paints
Britney Spears’ doctors have backed her call for her dad to be removed as her conservator.
Mathew S Rosengart Spears’ new lawyer filed a petition in Los Angeles probate court this week which asked for Jamie Spears to be removed.
Now Spears’ doctors are supporting the petition, according to legal documents filed on 28 July in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The document were submitted by attorney Laurieann Wright, who represents Spears’ temporary conservator Jodi Montgomery.
It reveals Montgomery wants Spears’ father removed from the conservatorship.
Montgomery “concluded that Jamie Spears should not continue to act as Conservator of the Estate, because his doing so is not in the best interest of Spears”, according to Variety.
It adds that the pop star’s “medical team agrees that it is not in the best interest of the Conservatee for Mr Spears to remain Conservator”.
Earlier this month Montgomery blasted the star’s dad and said he only asked for an investigation of the conservatorship in a bid to “clear his name” after his daughter made a string of allegations against him.
The Toxic singer accused her dad of intimidating her into working and also compared herself to a sex trafficking victim under the conservatorship in her court case last month.
According to The Blast, the singer’s conservator is saying that Britney demanded a “court-ordered investigation” into the allegations to put the blame on others involved in the case.
Jodi reportedly says that 69-year-old Jamie is only trying to “defend himself against his daughter’s accusations” and called his attempts a “thinly veiled attempt to clear his name”.
Jodi is also said to have urged the court to not “take his bait”.
The singer and her lawyer Michael Rosengart are understood to have filed documents requesting that a Los Angeles financial advisor named Jason Rubin be granted say over her estate instead of Jamie.
According to Rubin’s website, he has experience in ‘financial, elder abuse litigation and has managed complex trust portfolios.”
The finance expert also has a department at his accountancy firm dedicated towards dealing with conservatorships.
If Britney is successful in her bid, Rubin will replace Jamie as the primary conservator of her estate and fortune.
Earlier this month, Britney took a step forward in her ongoing legal battle when she was granted permission to choose her own attorney.
It’s the first time Britney has had say in her legal representation since 2008.
