Britney Spears’ attorney, Mathew Rosengart, spoke candidly about the situation in court. “This man is not in his life, Your Honor, for another day,” he said of Jamie Spears. Judge Brenda Penny agreed the guardianship provision was “untenable” (via The New York Times). The decision to remove Jamie Spears from trusteeship comes as he faces serious allegations about how the trusteeship has been managed under his leadership.
Several recently released documentaries delve into Britney’s life over the past 13 years. One of them, “Controlling Britney Spears”, alleges that her house was wiretapped and that private conversations were monitored without her consent by a security team hired by Jamie. Rosengart found the allegations “horrific and inadmissible” in legal documents filed this week. “Whatever the outcome of the allegations, what cannot be truly disputed is how deeply upsetting they are for Ms. Spears,” he wrote, “(via Rolling Stone). Page Six reported that the FBI is said to be investigating the allegations.
The New York Times noted that Rosengart called for an investigation into Jamie Spears’ behavior while he was conservative of Britney’s estate. He previously called him a “declared alcoholic and drug addict” and questioned his qualifications to manage his daughter’s vast fortune (via TMZ).
