BRITNEY Spears’ father Jamie has filed a petition to end his daughter’s conservatorship after 13 years of controlling the singer’s estate.

The decision comes just days after  he demanded $2million in exchange for stepping down.

Jamie has filed paperwork to end Britney’s conservatorship

Jamie filed the petition to Los Angeles Superior Court.

According to NBC News, the paperwork states that the 39-year-old singer “is entitled to have this Court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required.” 

Additionally, the filing claims Britney‘s circumstances have changed “to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist.”

JAMIES DEMANDS $2MILLION

Jamie’s filing comes one week after Britney slammed her dad for trying to “extort” her for $2 million in exchange for stepping down as conservator.

Explosive court docs from the pop star’s attorney labeled the Spears patriarch as “shameful” for allegedly attempting to get more money from his daughter in addition to the “millions” he has already received. 

In court documents obtained by The Sun, Britney’s attorney, Mathew S. Rosengart, wrote a scathing message for Jamie and his counsel.

“Although Mr. Spears has for more than a decade evidently engaged in abusive and bullying conduct while also elevating his own personal and financial interests above those of his daughter,” the petition began.

He continued: “Regardless of the past, Mr. Spears and his counsel are now on notice: the status quo is no longer tolerable, and Britney Spears will not be extorted. 

“Mr. Spears’s blatant attempt to barter suspension and removal in exchange for approximately $2 million in payments, on top of the millions already reaped from Ms. Spears’s estate by Mr. Spears and his associates, is a non-starter.”

Mathew also alleged Jamie, 69, is attempting to “ensure payments to certain third parties while he perceives he still has leverage to extract concessions, but the reasons for his audacious desire to divert conservatorship assets to himself and others are, at this time, beside the point.”

JAMIE STEPS DOWN

Back in August, Jamie revealed his intent to step down as Britney’s conservator in court documents.

Court papers filed by Jamie‘s lawyer state: “There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate.

“And it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears’ best interests.”

The docs – first obtained by TMZ – continue: “Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests.

“So, even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter’s new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator.”

‘SHAMEFUL’

In response to Jamie’s petition to step down on certain conditions of his own, Matthew slammed the conservator as “shameful” and claimed he “spends the overwhelming majority of his brief engaging in inappropriate attacks and finger-pointing.”

“In trying to defend himself, he also looks back 13 years, improperly discussing his daughter’s ‘mental health issues’ while outrageously suggesting he should be ‘thanked,’” the legal expert furiously said.

They continued: “In other words, although Mr. Spears has, at last, been forced to recognize that it is best for his daughter if he departs now, he claims the right to drag his feet because it is best for him to cling to this conservatorship until he feels sufficiently-vindicated.

“If Mr. Spears truly feels he is ‘target of unjustified attacks,’ he can bring them to an end by doing the gracious, right, and necessary thing by resigning without attempting to extort conditions on his departure.

“Relatedly, there is no reason that his requested ‘transition’ cannot occur after Mr. Spears’s resignation of suspension.”

The document concluded: “Mr. Spears has no right to condition his departure on improper and extortionate demands for payment or blanket immunity.

“Instead, the only honorable, decent, and humane course of action is for Mr. Spears to resign now, provide all necessary information to evaluate his accounting, and, if matters cannot be resolve consensually, to try to defend his accounting.

“Once again, however—and importantly—that defense is for a later day and a different proceeding, and Mr. Spears’s effort to confuse and conflate these issues, and extract a quid pro quo, must be rejected.”
