Britney’s legal team filed docs requesting Bessemer Trust Company to become the sole conservator of her business affairs instead of having her father as co-conservator.
Britney reveals that she learned in an October 28 letter that Tristar Sports and Entertainment Group resigned as Britney’s business manager without any prior notice.
She also states how she is at odds with her dad for hiring Michael Kane of Miller Kaplan to come on as the new business manager without giving her prior notice or a chance to interview Kane, review the terms of his hiring, or consider alternatives.
Britney also says she is seriously concerned as Jamie’s goal “is to introduce a new gatekeeper who admittedly has a major working relationship with [Jamie’s] legal team.”
Britney believes Jamie wants to “retain full functional control of her assets, books and records.”
Britney states she will be filing a petition to remove Jamie as the co-conservator of the estate so that Bessemer can serve that role alone.
Earlier in the year, she requested Jamie be removed as the sole conservator of her business affairs.
And while at that point in time she was okay with him staying on as co-conservatory, now — she wants him out period.
In August, Jamie Spears filed a petition with the Superior Court of California requesting to have him and Andrew Wallet, “an attorney who once helped oversee the singer’s finances,” reinstated as her co-conservators.
Britney seeks a “voluntary” conservatorship, which translates to someone controlling her estate but Spears would have ultimately decide who the person in charge will be.
Her appointed conservator would have control over “performing, recording, videos, tours, TV shows, and other similar activities,” only if her medical team also agrees the commitments are in her best interest.
Spears’ mother, Lynn, also supports her daughter’s request to have the advisory firm in control of her conservatorship.
In addition, Britney’s legal team made it clear she does not “have a developmental disability” and nor is she a “patient in or on leave of absence from a state institution under the jurisdiction of the California Department of State Hospitals or the California Department of Developmental Services.”
