Jamie Spears, Britney’s father and guardian, is seeking compensation for attorney fees, according to new court documents obtained by ET. If the court approves his request, Britney will have to pay her father $ 2 million.
Also, Jamie is seeking compensation for expenses for the period from November 2019, when he was re-appointed as Britney’s guardian, to the present – $ 16,000 for each month, plus $ 2,000 for monthly office expenses.
Last week, it became known that Britney’s lawyer Sam Ingham, on behalf of the singer, submitted documents in which he asked for Jamie Spears to be fired from the guardian’s post. Britney insists that her longtime assistant Jodie Montgomery be reappointed as her guardian. In 2019, she was the singer’s guardian for several months. Then the powers were again transferred to Jamie Spears.
In November last year, Britney appointed a second custodian of the estate and Jamie Spears – the Bessemer Trust, which was given equal powers with Jamie, which significantly limited his freedom to manage his daughter’s property and finances. Spears tried to challenge this decision and said that due to the appearance of a second guardian, he lost many powers and this, in his words, “is very detrimental to Britney’s interests.” However, he failed to convince the court.
