In short, while a two-month wait for a petition hearing may not seem meaningful in a 13-year context, Ms. suffer more, ”Rosengart wrote in the filing. “Every day counts. “
He later added that while postponing the hearing on the singer’s request to dismiss her father to an earlier date is “important”, the “immediate suspension” of Jamie Spears “would be the most effective interim remedy,” in the best interests of Mrs. Spears. . “
Anyone who follows the singer on social media knows how much she enjoys traveling to Hawaii. In a recent article on a trip to Maui, Spears wrote that she loved “the sound of the ocean at night” and “hearing people laughing” from her balcony.
In Thursday’s dossier, Rosengart portrays Spears’ father in a hypocritical light when it comes to deciding how to spend his daughter’s money. According to the document, Jamie Spears’ attorney cost the estate $ 1,356,293 in attorney fees from October 2020 to June 2021. The registrar also pays himself $ 16,000 per month from the estate, plus 2 $ 000 per month for office expenses.
“These spendthrift ways are particularly problematic compared to the tight and ‘absolutely microscopic’ control Mr. Spears has exercised over his daughter, evidently from childhood to the present day,” Rosengart wrote, referring to the language. which singer’s mother Lynne Spears used in a recent statement in support of the petition to remove Jamie Spears from the legal settlement.
A lawyer for Jamie Spears did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News’ request for comment.
Last month, Britney Spears formally asked the court to suspend her father from his guardianship and appoint a professional trustee to take her father’s place. His request is supported by his mother, the current curator of his personal life, and his medical team, according to court documents.
Calls to get Spears and #FreeBritney’s father out of the court-ordered arrangement that gave him and others control of his life in 2008 have intensified since the singer said in court that his guardianship was “abusive” in an emotional and explosive hearing on June 23.
During her testimony, she said that she had to take drugs that made her drunk and that she was prevented from exercising a wide range of innate rights, such as getting into her boyfriend’s car and being removed. her IUD. Since then, her father has tried to reject responsibility for her care. He asked the court to investigate Spears’ allegations, while his lawyer, Vivian Thoreen, questioned the accuracy of the pop star’s abuse allegations, Variety reported.
“In short, for various legitimate and compelling reasons in the best interests of the Conservative, now is the time for Mr. Spears’ reign to end,” Rosengart said in Thursday’s filing.
