2 sec ago! ~Britney Spears Conservatorship Case! ~[JAMIE SPEARS++!] Is Britney Spears Menially Sick? [Hollywood-Celebrity- Conservator] Jamie Spears Alleged Britney is Mentally Sick. Britney Spears’s Father, Personal Conservator Wants To Put Her Under 5150 psychiatric detention.
Britney Spears’ personal conservator, Jodi Montgomery, informed Jamie Spears that his daughter is “mentally unwell” and that she wants to place her under a 5150 psychiatric detention, according to Jamie Spears.
Montgomery is now responding to Mr. Spears’ accusations in a statement acquired by Variety, and once again requesting that he stand down from his daughter’s conservatorship.
In part, Montgomery’s statement reads, “Ms. Montgomery implores Mr. Spears to stop the attacks.” “It doesn’t help; it just hurts. We must all focus on one thing and one thing only: Britney Spears’ health, well-being, and best interests.”
When it comes to her estate, Spears’ father is in charge of all financial choices, while Montgomery is in charge of all personal and medical decisions for the pop star.

New court documents filed Friday morning with the Los Angeles Superior Court allege that Montgomery called Spears’ father last month to say she is concerned about her behavior and mental health and believes she may require a 5150 psychiatric hold. Spears’ father is suing Montgomery for alleged wrongful imprisonment.
Mr. Spears writes in the documents, “On July 9, 2021, I got a phone call from Ms. Montgomery.” “During our phone conversation, Ms. Montgomery seemed distressed and voiced concern about my daughter’s recent conduct and overall mental health. Ms. Montgomery indicated that my daughter was not taking her prescriptions on time or appropriately, was not listening to her medical team’s advice, and refused to visit some of her doctors.”
Montgomery sought for his aid in dealing with these difficulties, according to Spears’ father, since she was “extremely concerned” about the “direction my daughter was headed in.”
“Ms. Montgomery does have concerns about Ms. Spears’ recent conduct and general mental health,’ as set out in Jamie Spears’ Declaration dated August 6, 2021,” an attorney representing Montgomery, Laurieann Wright, told Variety. Ms. Montgomery couldn’t go into any more information about her worries because of medical confidentiality, but she can state that having her father Jamie Spears continue to function as her Conservator instead of a neutral professional fiduciary is having a severe impact on Ms. Spears’ mental health.”
The statement adds, “Notably, Jamie Spears has yet to quit as Ms. Spears’ Conservator of the Person, which is why Ms. Montgomery continues to serve as Temporary Conservator of the Person.” “It is in Ms. Spears’ best interests for her father to relinquish his Conservatorship so that he may focus on being her father and developing a strong, caring father-daughter relationship.”
Mr. Spears claims that Montgomery recommended putting the singer on psychiatric hold. Montgomery disputes this.
According to the statement, “Mr. Spears’ declaration misrepresents what Ms. Montgomery said him in connection to a prospective 5150 psychiatric detention for Ms. Spears.” “At no point did Ms. Montgomery tell Mr. Spears that Britney would be eligible for such a detention right now.
Ms. Montgomery expressed worry to Mr. Spears during their phone conversation that forcing Britney to testify or be examined would “move the needle in the wrong direction for her mental health.” Montgomery reportedly admitted that “many of my daughter’s comments at the previous hearing were not accurate and ascribed her statements to the fact that my daughter is mentally unwell,” according to Britney’s father.
The hearing to which Spears’ father refers was in mid-July, when the pop singer informed the judge she wanted to “file charges” for “conservatorship abuse.” She alleges she is being controlled by her father to the point that she is unable to chose what she drinks, cannot drive in a car with her partner, and is unable to have another child or marry because her conservators would not allow her to remove her IUD birth control device. (Mr. Spears’ counsel have already denied any misconduct.)
“His main motive has been his unwavering love for his daughter and a passionate desire to protect her from anyone seeking to take advantage of her,” Spears’ father adds.
Despite Spears’ father’s claims that he is working in his daughter’s best interests, Montgomery appears to be siding with the pop singer, who told Judge Brenda Penny earlier this summer that she wants Montgomery to stay on her case and that she wants her father removed and imprisoned. Ms. Spears has stated that she wants Montgomery to assist her in reintegrating into society, and Montgomery has stated that she is working on removing Spears from her conservatorship.
Attorneys for Spears’ father defend their client’s innocence while blaming Montgomery. This technique had already been employed by the older Spears, and Friday’s filing implies that it will be used again. Following his daughter’s first stunning evidence in court on June 23, in which she first broke her silence with a barrage of accusations against her father, he stated that he had no say in any personal or medical choices, which he claims are under Montgomery’s control.
Montgomery, along with Spears’ previous court-appointed attorney Samuel D. Ingham, who has since resigned, admitted his daughter to a facility in early 2019 and has “continued to take control of my daughter’s medical care and personal life ever since,” according to Spears’ father.
Montgomery’s attorney told Variety that she did not admit her to any institution and that she would not even have the authority to make such a choice.
In a statement, Montgomery’s lawyer said, “As Case Manager, Ms. Montgomery operated under the exclusive supervision and control of Jamie Spears.” “In March 2019, she had no ability or authority to place Britney Spears in any facility as a Case Manager; only Jamie Spears did.”
“It is categorically false that Ms. Montgomery and Sam Ingham ‘admitted Ms. Spears to a facility in early 2019.’” the statement reads. That would have been impossible, in truth. Working alone or in tandem, neither a Case Manager nor a Court Appointed Counsel could have had such power.
Only the Conservator of the Person (with the Conservatee’s approval) would have had that ability – and, once again, Jamie Spears in March 2019.”
Montgomery’s lawyer claims that while she signed “standard paperwork” for the facility, she did so only “under Jamie Spears’ instruction.” She claims that the singer’s treating psychiatrist at the time, Dr. Timothy Benson, took the decision to place him in a facility in March 2019.
Montgomery also appears to be aligning herself with Spears’ new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart’s, interests. Montgomery agreed with Rosengart in a recent filing that he wanted Mr.
Spears from the conservatorship, as well as claiming that Spears’ own physicians believe that he should be fired. (Rosengart is presently seeking to have Spears’ father removed and suspended, having filed documents only weeks after starting to work with the singer.)
Spears’ father also takes aim at his daughter’s attorney in the new filings, which he submitted on Friday, and objects to the hearing on the petition to remove him from the conservatorship being moved. Rosengart submitted a motion to expedite the hearing yesterday, claiming that it would be in the conservatee’s best interests. (At this time, the hearing is scheduled for September 29.)
Rosengart’s newest petition claimed, “A conservatorship should be a last option, meant to assist the conservatee rather than a system created to act as a tool for the profit of third parties,” saying that Spears’ father had spent her multi-million inheritance. “Mr. Spears has also enriched himself at the expense of his daughter, reaping millions of dollars from her services as a performer, in addition to paying himself $16,000 per month from Ms. Spears’ estate, $2,000 more than he has allotted to Ms. Spears, plus $2,000 per month for office expenses,” according to the documents released yesterday.
Rosengart’s petition yesterday contained a claim that the older Spears objected to his daughter travelling on vacation to Maui, Hawaii. Mr. Spears responds in today’s filing, claiming that Rosengart made “unsubstantiated, imprecise claims” and made a “false statement” regarding the Hawaii vacation.
Spears’ father, according to Rosengart, has had “absolutely microscopic control” over her life since she was a kid and continues to do so now as conservator of her estate. Rosengart says, for example, that Spears’ father opposed to his 39-year-old daughter taking a vacation in Maui this summer, but that he “ultimately succumbed.”
According to Rosengart’s petition, “Mr. Spears opposed to his daughter’s request in late July to take a brief vacation, disapproving of the spending that would have come from his daughter’s own, hard-earned money.” “His opposition to his adult daughter enjoying a well-deserved vacation at this stage in her life, while other monies are lavishly spent, exemplifies why suspension, and eventually removal, should not be delayed.”
