We knew Jamie Spears wasn’t going to go quietly, however that is simply gross.
When Britney Spears’ dad lastly agreed to step down from her conservatorship final month, the entire Web celebrated the information. However the #FreeBritney crowd remained suspicious and vigilant, as a result of Jamie didn’t hand in an instantaneous resignation — in reality, he indicated he would solely depart when sure “issues are resolved.”
Effectively, apparently the issues he hoped to resolve had been a giant payday for himself and his cronies: a complete of round $2 million for his attorneys’ charges and different third events, together with Lou Taylor’s notorious TriStar Leisure.
Fortunately, the pop star’s new crew is looking bulls**t. In a press release to Folks, her lawyer Mathew Rosengart stated:
“Mr. Spears was pressured to concede in his Aug. 12, 2021, ‘First Response’ to Britney Spears’s Petition to take away him that he should depart — and his departure is now inexorable. As we wrote in our new submitting with the Court docket, nonetheless, the quid professional quo preconditions that Mr. Spears sought in his Aug. 12, 2021, court docket submitting are inappropriate and unacceptable.”
The lawyer didn’t mince phrases in new court docket paperwork filed on Monday. The submitting learn:
“Britney Spears is not going to be bullied or extorted by her father. Nor does Mr. Spears have the appropriate to attempt to maintain his daughter hostage by setting the phrases of his elimination. This isn’t about him, it’s about the perfect pursuits of his daughter, which as a matter of regulation, mandate his elimination.”
“Whereas Mr. Spears professes his purported ‘love’ and ‘assist’ of his daughter whilst he stripped her of her autonomy and dignity and engaged in abusive conduct towards her, his First Response reveals his true motivations: to obtain or make massive financial funds. … Whatever the previous, Mr. Spears and his counsel at the moment are on discover: the established order is not tolerable, and Britney Spears is not going to be extorted. Mr. Spears’s blatant try and barter suspension and elimination in alternate for roughly $2 million in funds, on prime of the tens of millions already reaped from Ms. Spears’s property by Mr. Spears and his associates, is a non-starter.”
Rosengart went on to criticize Jamie for his statements in regards to the singer’s psychological wellbeing (like that ridiculous submitting about how the public would “praise” him in the event that they knew the reality), and slammed them as a clear try at “redemption.” He wrote:
“However the stringent restrictions of HIPAA, he has gone up to now in his submitting as to debate alleged particulars of Ms. Spears’s psychological state. Mr. Spears levies allegations of Ms. Spears’s ‘points,’ makes gratuitous feedback on the quantities spent on Ms. Spears’s medical care, questions whether or not Ms. Spears understands or remembers what has been carried out to her, and makes different inapt claims, whereas additionally attacking Conservator of the Particular person Jodi Montgomery.”
Jodi wasn’t the one one the Spears patriarch targeted, because the submitting famous he spent “seven pages of his Response airing grievances” together with his ex-wife Lynne Spears, who has been trying to assist get Jamie eliminated. Rosengart wrote:
“Lynne Spears does, certainly, assist Mr. Spears’s suspension and elimination, however the Petition have to be granted no matter her views. Because the Petition made abundantly clear, it’s Mr. Spears’s unbiased hostile affect on his daughter’s life, well-being, and finest pursuits that requires the Petition be granted. That Mr. Spears would use this solemn event to choose another struggle together with his ex-wife (the mom of his daughter) speaks volumes.”
The previous federal prosecutor once more really useful rushing up Jamie’s elimination, calling for him to be suspended on the subsequent court docket listening to on September 29 if he doesn’t resign:
“Even placing apart the authorized points requiring his immediate elimination, if he loves his daughter, Mr. Spears ought to resign now, as we speak, earlier than he’s suspended. It could be the proper and respectable factor to do.”
Rosengart additionally denied the daddy of three’s declare that “there are not any pressing circumstances justifying Mr. Spears’ speedy suspension,” stating:
“The world heard Ms. Spears’s brave and compelling testimony. Britney Spears’s life issues. Her well-being issues. Daily issues. There isn’t a foundation to attend.”
Man, we’re so glad to see somebody on Britney’s aspect lastly taking Jamie to process. Rosengart appears decided to carry him accountable and we love that he refuses to capitulate to Jamie’s monetary calls for. We’re certain this battle is way from over, however seeing somebody struggle for Britney this manner remains to be such a refreshing change of tempo. She shouldn’t have to offer her dad one other dime if she doesn’t wish to!
