Britney Spears, an American singer-songwriter, has requested in new court documents filed on Thursday that her father Jamie Spears be immediately removed from her conservatorship.
According to Fox News, Spears’ attorney Mathew Rosengart filed an ex parte application on Thursday requesting that the upcoming September 29 conservatorship hearing be rescheduled for later this month.
Spears’ attorney reiterated her desire to have her father removed as conservator of her estate, but this time the singer wishes for it to happen immediately.
According to a court filing obtained by Fox News, “Conservatee Britney Jean Spears will and hereby does apply to the Court for an Order Advancing the September 29 Hearing Date on Conservatee’s Petition to Remove James Spears as Conservator of the Estate and Petition to Appoint Jason Rubin as Conservator of the Estate.”
Additionally, it stated, “In the alternative, Conservatee moves for the immediate suspension of James P. Spears as Conservator and the appointment of Jason Rubin as Temporary Conservator pending the September 29, 2021 hearing currently scheduled.”
The court filing cited the ‘Toxic’ singer’s testimony from the June 23 and July 14 hearings, as well as declarations from Jodi Montgomery, the person’s current conservator, and Lynne Spears, as “good cause” for the application.
Rosengart has asked the court to reschedule the September 29 hearing “to the earliest date on or after August 23, 2021 that this Court’s calendar permits.” He also requests that the September 29 hearing be rescheduled to no later than September 5.
According to the documents, “every day that passes is another day of avoidable harm and prejudice to Ms Spears and the Estate. As described in the Verified July 26 Petitions and filings under Probate Code Section 2650, Ms Spears’ emotional health and well-being must be, and are, the paramount concern.”
Britney’s attorney continues by stating that the request is in Spears’ “best interests,” and as Montgomery stated earlier this month in a court filing, it is “critical” to her well-being.
Rosengart was appointed as Spears’ new counsel last month following her explosive testimony in Los Angeles Superior Court in June. On June 23, the singer addressed Judge Brenda Penny, claiming her 13-year conservatorship was “abusive” and that her father has benefited from his “control” over her life.
She delivered a 24-minute reprimand in open court, denouncing her father’s control over her life and claiming to be depressed and sleep deprived.
Rosengart requested in July that Jamie be replaced by Jason Rubin. Britney’s attorney described the decision as a “objectively rational preference to appoint a highly qualified, professional fiduciary in this situation.”
Britney’s 13-year conservatorship saga continues with Thursday’s court filing. After a public breakdown, Britney was placed under a conservatorship in 2008, and a judge then appointed Jamie as both the conservator of her person and the conservator of her estate.
