In a court filing, Jodi Montgomery, Britney Spears’ conservator-of-the-person since 2019, said that she agreed with the pop star’s desire that her father be removed as conservator of the estate.
“Jamie” Spears, according to the application filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Wednesday, should not continue to serve as conservator of his daughter “since doing so is not in her best interest.”
“Because the conservatee’s best interests are important in this conservatorship, petitioner joins conservatee in the removal petition,” states the document. Ms. Spears requested the same remedy in her removal petition, and the petitioner is asking the court to grant it.
As Britney Spears’ new lawyer, Montgomery said she agreed with the singer that Jamie Spears should be replaced by certified public accountant Jason Rubin, who is from Woodland Hills. Rubin, she said, is “very competent” and will “work in Britney Spears’ best interest.”
Jamie Spears’ medical team, according to Montgomery, feels that he should be removed.
As of Friday afternoon, calls for comment from Britney Spears and Jamie Spears’ attorneys went unanswered.
Britney Spears’ new attorney filed a similar motion days before Montgomery. According to Mathew Rosengart, Rubin should take over as the company’s fiduciary in lieu of Jamie Spears, and that it is a “objectively intelligent preference” to do so.
“Britney Spears has the authority to terminate her conservatorship at any time,” Rosengart continued. In a bitter legal battle to remove the conservatorship, the 39-year-old artist accuses her father of misusing his control over her and destroying her career.
According to Jamie Spears and his staff, he is solely interested in what is in the best interests of his daughter.
