Britney Spears’s legal battle is still ongoing despite the removal of the conservatorship over her. Newly discovered emails included in public court records show that Britney Spears’ former business manager was involved in discussions leading up to the establishment of the singer’s contentious conservatorship.
Lou Taylor, the founder of Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group, previously told Page Six that she had “no role whatsoever in the creation” of the conservatorship. But that is completely false, according to Mathew Rosengart, the powerful attorney representing Britney Spears, who filed the document last Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Taylor introduced herself to Jamie’s then-lawyers Geraldine Wyle and Jeryll Cohen in an email dated January 17th, 2008, just 15 days before the “Toxic” singer’s father, Jamie Spears, went to court and took control of her personal affairs and multimillion-dollar estate, according to records obtained by the outlet. Taylor also wrote, “I look for [sic] to working with you.”
Twelve minutes later, Taylor then sent Jamie an email to let him know that she had “talked to” Wyle and Cohen about Andrew Wallet, the attorney who would eventually assist Britney with financial management for 11 years and that Wallet and Tri Star would “serve as co’s [co-conservators]” alongside Jamie.
Taylor and Wyle also communicated via email on January 30th, 2008, two days prior to the conservatorship starting, regarding the formation of an “official statement… on behalf of Jamie” to be sent to the media informing them that Britney had been placed under conservatorship despite her widely publicized personal struggles. Taylor last emailed Wyle on February 25th, 2008, about Britney’s trust.
“One of the suggestions that Andrew had was the trust could pay the bills and that would get us around a great deal of the court submission issues, HOWEVER, when it is a business related deductible expense those need to be paid out of Britney Brands, or Britney Touring.
You will EXPOSE the trust if you pay business expenses from the Trust.”
“As all the evidence makes abundantly clear, the conservatorship was set up on the recommendation of legal counsel, not Tri Star, and approved by the court for more than 12 [sic] years. In fact, Tri Star was not even the business manager for the conservatorship when it was established.”
In a since-deleted Instagram post from February, Britney expressed her intention to “sue the sh*t out of Tri Star,” saying that her father “worshipped” Taylor. The company manager’s attorney, Charles Harder, however, termed Britney’s allegation “entirely false.” Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
