Britney Spears, 39, wants her father to resign as guardian immediately — and is refusing to pay a penny for it to happen, according to her lawyer.
The Spears family feud is by no means over, despite the fact that only a few weeks ago Jamie Spears, 69, promised to end the controversial guardianship that gives him power over his daughter’s life.
The status quo is no longer acceptable, and Britney Spears will not allow herself to be blackmailed, Rosengart wrote in the letter sent to the Los Angeles Supreme Court.
Britney’s father drops guardianship
The background is that Jamie Spears is said to have asked for $2 million to retire as a trustee, among other things allegedly to cover legal costs in the ongoing case.
Jamie Spears was appointed as Britney’s guardian in 2008, after he underwent a notorious mental breakdown.
The plan was to be temporary, but it became permanent. Since then, many have asked the question: Is Britney really unfit to take care of herself?
The pop star’s battle to free himself from his father’s legal grip has drawn tens of thousands of fans around the world into the Free Britney movement.
In August, Britney’s father said that He wants to end the controversial guardianship, But it did not give a deadline for when this would happen.
“If he loves his daughter, Mr. Spears should retire now, today, before he can be laid off,” Rosengart told TMZ.
Britney Spears’ attorneys requested that Jimmy Spears be removed from the position of trustee on September 29 if he chooses to withdraw from the process rather than step aside.
“Spears also has no right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting conditions for him to resign,” Rosengart told TMZ.
– This is not about him, it is about what is best for his daughter.
