Jamie Spears is well known for keeping his daughter under a conservatorship. He has filed a new motion to have his legal fees continued, because he thinks Britney needs to pay.
Britney Spears’ father, who was removed from conservatorship, has demanded her daughter to pay legal fees. Despite being suspended from her conservatorship in September. The pop star’s estranged father filed motions in court last week to have his daughter’s estate continue to pay his legal bills.
Spears’ father requested the judge’s “confirmation, authorization, and direction” for his daughter’s estate to pay the lawyers who are “engaging in proceedings involving Jamie’s ongoing fiduciary duties connected to winding up” the conservatorship.
Meanwhile, the 40-years-old Britney’s attorney Matthew Rosengart said Page Six in the statement Monday, “Mr. Spears reaped many millions of dollars from Britney as a conservator, while paying his lawyers millions more, all from Britney’s work and hard-earned money.”
Spears’ counsel costs $1,200 per hour; however, it is unclear whether one of Jamie’s attorneys cited in the article, Alex Weingarten, charged that amount.
Variety received a copy of the 27-page petition, “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.”
Jamie took out a $40,000 loan from his daughter’s business manager Lou Taylor’s company, Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group, only days before Spears was placed under conservatorship in 2008. Jamie had previously filed for bankruptcy, so it’s unclear how he used the money. New York Times further added that Jamie made $6million over 13 years, while TriStar collected 5 percent of Britney’s “adjusted gross entertainment revenue.”
