Jamie Spears Requests Britney Continue To Pay His Legal Fees Despite Termination of Conservatorship

A little over a month ago, Britney Spears‘ 13-year conservatorship ended. Now, Jamie Spears is now petitioning to have the singer continue paying his attorney fees.

In court documents filed in Los Angeles last week, Jamie requested that Britney’s estate make payments to his legal team for “ongoing fiduciary duties relating to the winding up of the Conservatorship of the Person and Estate.”

“Prompt payment on account of Jamie’s attorneys’ fees is necessary to ensure the Conservatorship can be wound up quickly and efficiently to allow Britney to take control of her life as she and Jamie desire,” the documents state.

“The fiduciary obligations Jamie owes did not end with his suspension or with the order terminating the Conservatorship,” the petition continued, adding: “Payment of Jamie’s attorneys’ fees from the Estate is required regardless of the unsupported ad hominem vitriol lodged at him.”

Britney’s attorney Mathew Rosengart called Jamie’s request “shameful,” in a statement this past Monday.

“Mr. Spears reaped many millions of dollars from Britney as a conservator, while paying his lawyers millions more, all from Britney’s work and hard-earned money,” the statement read.

“The conservatorship has been terminated and Mr. Spears was suspended ignominiously. Under the circumstances, his petition is not only legally meritless, it is an abomination. Britney poignantly testified about the pain her father caused her and this only adds to it. This is not what a father who loves his daughter does.”

Spears, 39, conservatorship of estate and person was terminated by an L.A. judge on November 12.

The singer gave a shout-out to Rosengart on Instagram after the good news. Spears hired Rosengart in July after the court allowed her to retain her own attorney. Previously, she was represented by court-appointed Sam Ingham.

“I’m so happy my lawyer Mathew Rosengart came into my life when he did … he has truly turned my life around,” she wrote. “I’m forever thankful for that !!!!”

A source revealed to PEOPLE over the weekend how the singer had “the best day of her life” when her conservatorship was terminated.

“She was crying and laughing at the same time,” the source shared. “It was hard for her to understand that it’s over after so many years.” 

The insider added, “She is so grateful for everyone that has helped her.”
