American singer Britney Spears’ lawyer filed paperwork on Monday 30 August claiming that her father, Jamie Spears is dragging out his agreement to exit as conservator of her multimillion-dollar estate with an extortion attempt.


Britney Spears’ lawyer Mathew Rosengart filed paperwork claiming that Jamie Spears has demanded $2 million (R28.8 million) from the singer as a “quid pro quo” condition to back out of the conservatorship. A “quid pro quo” is an advantage granted in return for something.

“Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father. Nor does Mr. Spears have the right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting the terms of his removal,” said Rosengart in a statement.

The #FreeBritney movement has been progressing as the new Los Angeles County Court motion claimed that Jamie Spears must be forced by the court to forfeit control of her finances and business affairs at the hearing taking place on 29 September.

“The world heard Ms. Spears’s courageous and compelling testimony. Britney Spears’s life matters. Her well-being matters. Every day matters. There is no basis to wait,” read the statement.

After taking control of his daughters $60 million (R864 million) fortune in 2008, following her mental health struggles, Jamie Spears agreed to step down from the conservatorship if he can work with the court to ensure an orderly transition. He now claims he needs money from the singer to pay lawyers and agents according to the document.

Mathew Rosengate went on to further plead with Jamie Spears to show his daughter some fatherly love and step down.

“Even putting aside the legal issues requiring his prompt removal, if he loves his daughter, Mr. Spears should resign now, today, before he is suspended.  It would be the correct and decent thing to do,” continued Rosengate’s statement.


The Toxic hitmaker was under investigation for battery after an alleged altercation with a female employee in August. Sources claimed that although no hitting was involved, Britney “swiped” her employees cell phone. 

Page Six reported that prosecutors have decided not to charge the Gimme More hitmaker with misdemeanor battery. 

“Britney is relieved to put this behind her. The entire ‘incident’ — if you can even call it that — was blown out of proportion. It should never have been made into a big to-do, and the folks at the DA’s office should not have had to waste their time and resources investigating it,” said a source to Page Six. 

“That said, Britney understood that due diligence had to be performed once the complaint was made, and she was willing to cooperate to clear her name,” the source continued.
