A new court filing from the lawyer of Britney Spears has accused her father of attempting to extort the singer for $2 million before stepping down as conservator.
“Britney Spears will not be extorted,” reads the filing. “Mr Spears‘ 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‘ estate by Mr Spears and his associates, is a non-starter.”
Jamie Spears has not yet responded to the fresh accusation. He allegedly agreed to step down as his daughter’s conservator in August.
“The only question before the court – which has, unfortunately, been lost for years – is whether Mr Spears; prompt suspension and removal are in the best interests of Britney Spears,” continued the filing.
“The unequivocal answer is yes.”
Last week, it was reported that Spears was under investigation following an altercation with her housekeeper. Rosengart described the incident as “nothing more than a ‘he said, she said’”.
A court hearing will be held on September 29 in the event that Jamie Spears does not give up his position as conservator.
