Britney Spears fought hard in court to get her restrictive conservatorship lifted, and she is now fully embracing her independence. The singer’s legal battle is still ongoing despite the removal of the conservatorship over her. The former business manager of Britney Spears is now being questioned by Britney’s attorney, who claims that the company’s owner lied about the company’s role in the conservatorship.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Tri Star Entertainment lied to the judge by stating it had no participation in the establishment of the conservatorship. Tri Star Entertainment, according to Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, received more than $18 million from the 13-year duration of the conservatorship.
According to Rosengart, Jamie Spears borrowed at least $40,000 from Tri Star, which at the time was a fairly unknown agency and did not represent any other celebrities, immediately before he went to court and was appointed his daughter’s temporary conservator.
Rosengart claims that the money came with conditions, such as that Jamie would receive the money and Tri Star would obtain Britney’s business. The attorney has already stated that this alleged trade-off is exceedingly suspicious, if not improper. He wants Tri Star to release all relevant documents, but Tri Star is asking a judge to prevent that action.
Britney’s attorney says Lou Taylor, the owner of Tri Star, allegedly stated that her business played “no role whatsoever in the creation of a conservatorship for Britney Spears.” But Rosengart asserts that’s just untrue, citing an email Jamie received from Lou Taylor in January 2008, weeks before the conservatorship was created.
Lou wrote in the mail:
“he [attorney Andrew Wallet] and tri star will serve as co’s [i.e., co-conservators] w you.” Taylor wrote another email to another lawyer before the conservatorship was established, saying, “I look forward to working with you.”
To find out if Tri Star had any involvement in covertly monitoring Britney’s communications, including her text messages, Rosengart is demanding records. The lawyer is also willing to review Tri Star’s interactions with Jamie Spears regarding the latter’s actions while under conservatorship. However, the judge hasn’t made a decision regarding it yet.
