As Britney Spears’ controversial tutelage exits and resignations snowballs, attention has now turned to the bottom line of the singer’s more than $ 50 million fortune. Specifically, a day after temporary co-curator Jodi Montgomery called for big bucks for increased security amid death threats, the singer’s father and co-curator firmly want to set their sights on the cast of more. silver.
“If the Court grants the petition ex parte, it is expected that Ms. Montgomery will not be the only one to seek additional protection to be paid by the Conservatorship Estate,” says opposition Elder Spears (read here). “The nasty rhetoric and threatening emails, social media posts and voicemail messages are pervasive and ongoing and impact many people involved in or connected with the Conservatory, including the Curator, Mr. Spears, other members of the Conservatory. the family, Ms. Montgomery allegedly, and many of their lawyers and other professionals involved – some more than others, and some more threatening than others, ”adds the potentially pugilistic record.

In the face of the alleged severe intimidation that emerged from the glaring spotlight of Britney Spears’ sometimes shocking remarks to Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny and others on June 23, Montgomery asks for $ 50,000 a month for protection 24/7.
Citing threats of “violence and even death” in his July 7 petition, court-appointed certified private professional trustee Montgomery said that “security determined that the security risk was serious enough to recommend that ’24/7 physical security is provided to the applicant on an interim basis to protect them from harm and until the applicant can make certain improvements to the security of their home office / residence. “
Part of the not-so-passive aggressive confrontation between the co-curators, the one who is clearly not in his daughter’s good books and the one who has at least a working relationship with the singer, will come over time, as well as money.
Montgomery’s admittedly costly petition calls the new security funding request something that is on an “interim basis.” However, Elder Spears calls the request “too vague and open, and inappropriately and inexplicably seeks to shift the onus of ensuring his safety to Mr. Spears.”
With wealth management firm Bessemer Trust stepping down last week from its role as co-curator of the career and finances of Spears, 39, the power to write the checks rests solely with Jamie Spears. In that vein, the elder Spears, who has dominated the unique and intricate arrangement on his daughter since he was initiated in 2008, is not interested in playing the villain, so to speak.
“It is not appropriate that Mr. Spears be put in the position of choosing and
choose who among the many affected by the Conservatorship should be allowed to bill the fees for security services live at the Conservatorship Estate, ”opposition to the Los Angeles Superior Court role said Thursday. “As a Chartered Professional Trustee, Ms. Montgomery should personally pay for all security services as a cost of
to do business.”
This case, like so many others apparently under the Spears’ tutelage, will be addressed at a hearing still scheduled for July 14 in Judge Penny’s DTLA courtroom.
Long the subject of criticism over the often-obscured workings of the arrangement that leaves Britney Spears little agency in her own life, Jamie Spears filed documents on June 29 calling for an investigation into the “serious allegations” raised by his daughter. in his telephone statement to the court on June 23. There was certainly some sort of civil war on the old Spears case at the end of last month. If only the revelations of an IUD that Britney wants to remove and the side effects of the drugs fall under the jurisdiction of the named Montgomery in 2019, who is in charge of the singer’s personal affairs.
The resignation of Britney Spears’ attorney Samuel Ingham III and her longtime manager Larry Rudolph earlier this week swirls around it all. Yesterday, among other moves in the much maligned guardianship, Jamie Spears’ ex-wife and Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears, sought court approval so her daughter could choose her own lawyer instead of leaving her home. ‘Ingham. The matriarch has no official role in guardianship, but is listed as an “interested party”, for obvious reasons.
