Britney Spears said that her father, Jamie Spears, secretly hired a new business manager to “keep control of her money.” Therefore, the singer went to court with a request that the Bessemer Trust Company become her guardian and gain full control over the singer’s finances, depriving her father of power, who has been controlling the star for 12 years. This is reported by the TMZ edition.
In court documents, the singer clarified that Jamie Spears, without her knowledge, hired a manager, Michael Caine, who is associated with her father’s lawyers. Britney notes that she never spoke to Michael or signed any agreements with him.
Earlier, Britney went to court with a request that her father is completely removed from guardianship. The case is progressing well: last month the singer’s petition was granted and she was allowed to expand her legal team. Jamie tried to challenge this, because, in his opinion, new lawyers for his daughter “will cost too much.”
It’s worth noting that Britney hasn’t given up on guardianship altogether. She said that it “saved her from collapse, loss of finances and exploitation by predatory individuals, and also helped to restore the position of a world-class artist.”
