BRITNEY SPEARS'S FATHER WAIVES LEGAL GUARDIANSHIP OF HIS DAUGHTER
Thus concludes a part of Britney Spears' battle to free herself from a legal guardianship that has already lasted for 13 years: Her father, Jamie Spears, has agreed to resign from his position, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.
After stating that “in reality, there is no real reason to suspend or remove Mr. Spears as guardian of his estate,” Jamie's attorney wrote: “However, since Mr. Spears is the target of relentless unwarranted attacks, no considers a public battle against her daughter over her continued guardianship to be in the best interest of her. So while he must challenge this unwarranted request to terminate his post, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and with his daughter's new attorney to carry out a peaceful transition to a new tutor ".
The documents portray Jamie as a maligned savior and go to great lengths to repair his reputation. Going back 13 years ago, in 2008, right at the height of her daughter's conflict with her family and the media, her lawyer wrote in writing that Britney “was not only suffering mentally and emotionally, she was also having financial difficulties and was being manipulated by predators. Mr. Spears came to the rescue of her daughter to protect her. "
It was Britney herself who requested that her father be removed from her role, which allowed him to control her finances and, as the general public learned, thanks to her passionate plea before a judge this summer. , her body. She complained of being medicated against her wishes and having been forced to have an IUD implanted despite wanting to have more children, a claim that Jamie Spears' attorney has denied.
Mathew Rosengart, Britney's attorney, responded in a statement: “We are pleased but not necessarily surprised that Mr. Spears and his attorney finally acknowledge that he should be removed from office. However, we are disappointed by his constant shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms. Spears and others. "
Rosengart further noted that he does not finalize Jamie's role in the trial here. “We are ready to continue our vigorous investigation into the conduct of Mr. Spears and others over the past 13 years as he reaped millions of dollars from his daughter's estate. I look forward to taking Mr. Spears affidavit in the near future. In the meantime, Mr. Spears should step aside immediately instead of pouring out false accusations and directing cheap blows at his own daughter. "
