Jamie Spears’ new allegations against daughter, Britney
Monday - 09/08/2021 15:48
Britney Spears’ father claims her conservator Jodi Montgomery frantically called him on July 9 concerning her mental health.
Britney Spears’ conservator Jodi Montgomery feared for her mental health just last month, so says her father James P. Spears.
In new court documents filed on Friday, James, also known as Jamie Spears, alleged Ms Montgomery frantically called him on July 9 to communicate her alleged fears about the pop star’s mental health.
“Mr Spears received a call from Ms Montgomery on July 9, 2021, in which she sounded very distraught, expressed concern about Ms Spears’ recent behaviour and her refusal to listen to or even see her doctors,” lawyers for Jamie Spears claimed in the filing obtained by Fox News.
Mr Spears alleges that Ms Montgomery “pleaded for Mr Spears’ help to address these issues.”
Lawyers for the pop star and Ms Montgomery did not immediately return Fox News’ requests for comment.
Mr Spears’ filing goes on to state that his “sole motivation has been his unconditional love for his daughter and a fierce desire to protect her from those trying to take advantage of her.”
The filing alleges that Mr Spears believes his daughter’s alleged medical treatment is “indeed serious.”
He additionally claimed that it was Ms Montgomery and Spears’ former lawyer, Samuel Ingham III, who “admitted Ms Spears to a facility in early 2019, including but not limited to signing the admittance documents.”
Friday’s filing comes just one day after Spears’ new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, filed an ex parte application, requesting that the upcoming September 29 hearing in her conservatorship case be moved to later this month.
“Conservatee Britney Jean Spears will and hereby does apply to the Court, on an ex parte basis, for an Order Advancing the September 29 Hearing Date on Conservatee’s Petition to Remove James Spears as Conservator of the Estate and Petition to Appoint Jason Rubin as Conservator of the Estate. In the alternative, Conservatee moves for the immediate suspension of James P. Spears as Conservator and the appointment of Jason Rubin as Temporary Conservator pending the hearing presently set for September 29, 2021,” the court filing obtained by Fox News states.
In response, Mr Spears’ lawyers claim there are “no grounds whatsoever to suspend” him as conservator of the estate. And while Mr Spears claims he will “not object” to the hearing being moved to an earlier date, he said Mr Rosengart’s request included “unsubstantiated, vague accusations and a false statement about Mr Spears opposing a trip to Hawaii.”
In his filing, Mr Rosengart cited the Toxic singer’s testimony from the June 23 and July 14 hearings, declarations from Jodi Montgomery, currently the conservator of the person, and Lynne Spears as “good cause” for the application.
“Conversely, every day that passes is another day of avoidable harm and prejudice to Ms Spears and the Estate,” the docs continue. “As described in the Verified July 26 Petitions and filings under Probate Code Section 2650, Ms Spears’s emotional health and wellbeing must be, and are, the paramount concern,” Mr Rosengart claimed.
Last month, Mr Rosengart was appointed as Spears’ new counsel following bombshell testimony she gave in Los Angeles Superior Court in June. On June 23, the singer addressed Judge Brenda Penny, calling the conservatorship she’s been under for 13 years “abusive” and claimed her father has enjoyed his “control” over her life. She voiced similar concerns in July.
Mr Rosengart has asked that Mr Spears be replaced with Jason Rubin. Mr Rosengart called the move an “objectively intelligent preference to nominate a highly qualified, professional fiduciary in this circumstance.”
