While guns blazing against Britney Spears’ parents, her lawyers are now angry over the way they are handling the media scrutiny. With each passing day, the pop star’s ongoing conservatorship drama is only gaining momentum. Reportedly she is now facing a lot of heat from her lawyers for spending thriftlessly.
According to the Newsweek report, the 38-year-old pop icon has amassed a large fortune for herself but has little legal control over it. Spear’s conservatorship came under fire after anonymous sources divulged that she was allegedly held against her will in the facility since January 2019. Soon the news spread like wildfire on the internet. Several celebrities had come out in support of her including, Cher, Miley Cyrus, Mario Lopez and Heidi Montag. #FreeBritney movement began and everyone began questioning the length of her conservatorship.
As per the latest document procured by E!, Britney Spears had allegedly paid team of advisors and attorneys a combined $1,202,504.30 in 2019. The report also alleged that Jamie Spears, Britney’s father had received $128,000 as his salary for playing the role of her conservator. The court placed the singer under Jamie’s conservatorship temporarily after her 2008 meltdown. Temporary ownership soon turned into permanent and her father now has complete control over her assets.
A New York Post report cited, “Her most mundane purchases, from a drink at Starbucks to a song on iTunes, are tracked in court documents as part of the plan to safeguard the great fortune she has earned but does not ultimately control.”
However, for a brief period of time, Jason Trawick, Britney’s former boyfriend, became her co-conservatorship with Jamie. That came to end after the couple called their relationship off and Jamie continued to be her conservatorship. In 2019, Jamie stepped down from conservatorship following the near-fatal colon rupture and around the same time, Britney entered a psychiatric facility. Meanwhile, Andrew Wallet who took over the conservatorship also resigned in March 2019.
