Britney Spears’s lawyer asked a California court on Monday to remove the singer’s father from overseeing her estate. Jamie Spears has been in charge of his daughter’s finances for 13 years.
Britney Spears’ newly hired attorney Mathew Rosengart has filed a motion to do with a higher court in Los Angeles. He applied to replace his father, Jamie Spears, with Chartered Accountant Jason Rubin of Certified Strategies Inc. in Woodland Hills, California. He argued that his candidate was a qualified professional trustee.
The solicitor’s application also includes a request to dismiss, inter alia, such arrangements so far as the right to make healthcare decisions on behalf of the singer. Proposes that Rubin be authorized to perform approved activities related to, inter alia, performance, recording, films and television programs.
According to the application, Britney Spears’s fortune is estimated at over $ 2.7 million in cash assets and $ 56 million in non-cash assets.
The singer announced that she would bring charges against her father last month. She called his actions an abuse. – If it’s not an abuse, I don’t know what is. (…) I thought they were trying to kill me – said Spears, quoted by CNN.
The Britney Spears case
The filing of the papers coincided on Monday with another hearing in a Los Angeles High Court in a Spears probation case. It was debated whether the personally custody of singer Jodi Montgomery should receive additional security in view of the alleged death threats she received.
Judge Brenda Penny has ordered Montgomery to remain in office until October 8. It also approved the resignation of Bessemer Trust, a financial firm that was to assume joint supervision of Spears’ assets, but filed a resignation earlier this month.
According to CNN, the parties’ lawyers asked for more time to negotiate a spending limit on additional collateral for Montgomery. Attorney Vivian Lee Thoreen said Jamie Spears had approved the release of up to $ 50,000 a month to protect Montgomery if his daughter agreed, despite his initial objections.
The next Spears hearing is scheduled for September 29.
