Britney Spears’ Conservatorship Ends After 13 Years
ET confirms that the conservatorship of the singer, 39, has been ended after Friday’s hearing. Judge Brenda Penny confirmed that the conservatorship will end upon a ruling on a petition to substitute judgment on Dec. 8. Britney will also receive a transfer of assets.
Mathew Rosengart Britney’s lawyer stated that their main purpose was to end the conservatorship. He referred to Britney’s testimony and said so. He also mentioned wanting to end conservatorship without any medical evaluation.
Rosengart spoke out about John Zabel, a Certified Public Accountant, who was named temporary conservator of Britney’s estate following the suspension of Jamie Spears’ father. According to the attorney, there are still a few things that need to be done on the financial side.
Counsel for Jodi Montgomery has been Britney’s conservator. She stated that Montgomery would be working alongside the team to make a peaceful transition.
Judge Penny inquired about Rosengart’s decision to end the Britney Spears conservatorship. She also wanted to know what would happen to the temporary conservatorship instructions. Rosengart stated no and referred to Zabel’s caveats. Zabel claimed that he filed judgment for administrative rights that didn’t prohibit the conservatorship from ending today. But he will have two primary powers. 1) To execute trust documents themselves; 2) To execute supplemental documentation, healthcare, and power of attorney.
Rosengart stated Zabel, who will still be executive of trust asset assets, will offer a “concierge-service for Ms. Spears.” Lauriann, Montgomery’s legal representative, added that there will a smooth transition with Montgomery and that they are “incomplete support of petition judgment” so “Ms. Spears may live a happy, safe, and fulfilled lifestyle.” Lynne Spears appeared via video with Britney’s mom.
At a hearing on January 19, 2022, the financial aspect of matters will be discussed.
Britney celebrated the news on social media after the decision. Celebrities also expressed happiness for him.
Britney’s father was removed from his position as conservator of Britney’s estate in September. He soon thereafter hired new attorneys and filed to “immediately end” the conservatorship of his daughter.
Rosengart, however, questioned his motives. According to ET court documents, the lawyer claimed Jamie was trying to avoid being deposed under the penalty of perjury because he did not want to answer questions regarding Britney’s phone and the home being allegedly bugged.
Rosengart stated in his filing that Jamie wanted to end the Britney Spears conservatorship immediately to “bolster his reputation, to avoid his deposition or respond to the outstanding discovery he received in August.” “
Rosengart also demanded all documents between Jamie, Tri Star. These documents include any agreements, communications about Tri Star’s payments from the estate, and payments made by Tri-Star for legal services. Rosengart also asked for the records between Jamie and Tri-Star, which include any agreements, communications regarding payments to Tri-Star from the estate, and payments made by the estate for legal services provided to Tri-Star.
Jamie filed the first conservatorship end petition in September. This news was almost a month after he stated he would be willing “when the time is right” to become her conservator.
Rosengart described Jamie’s decision as a victory for the singer and an additional step towards justice.
According to ET also heard from Rosengart after Jamie’s suspension, that Britney was happy about this decision. “I think she’s very happy,” Rosengart shared. He also told reporters that Britney would be freed from her conservatorship on her 40th Birthday, Dec. 2.
Britney Spears Still Has A Lot of Healing To Do After Dad’s Suspension from Conservatorship
But there are still some things to be done. Lynne sought Britney’s help to pay for legal expenses she incurred when trying to extricate her daughter from her conservatorship. ET has obtained court documents indicating that Lynne’s counsel is asking the courts for reimbursement of her fees and the costs of an outside lawyer in California.
Lynne claimed in the docs, that she hired Jones Swanson Huddell & Garrison LLC for Britney’s help Jamie.
The filing came just days after Britney claimed Lynne was the mastermind behind the conservatorship she held in an unresolved post.
ET was informed by Tamar Arminak, an attorney, that Britney’s case is “going change” the court’s approach to conservatorships in the future.
Arminak said that this case is a game-changer, and there’s a good reason to modernize conservatorships. “I think Britney’s case and everything we’ve learned in the past two years is going to change the way courts, at least in Los Angeles look at conservatorships, and how they deal with conservatees.”
Popstar Britney Spears has been focusing on Sam Asghari’s wedding. This week she revealed that her bridesmaid dress was being made. Sam and her showed their “#FreeBritney” shirts that read “It’s a human rights movement.”
