Britney Spears’ Father Steps Down From Conservatorship

After several months of public and personal pressure, Britney Spears‘ father has agreed to eventually step down as his daughter’s conservator.

While the filing claimed that there were no actual grounds for James Spears’ suspension or removal and that it is “highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears’ best interests,” according to her father’s legal team, “Mr. Spears is willing to step down when the time is right, but the transition needs to be orderly and include a resolution of matters pending before the Court,” “Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter’s new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator.”

Following the court’s decision to allow the pop star to choose her own attorney, Mathew Rosengart began representing the singer last month. As Britney Spears’ new representative, her lawyer filed a petition in late July to replace her father with Jason Rubin, a certified public accountant, as the pop star’s sole conservator. Rubin is a principal at Certified Strategies, a firm that has significant experience in estate financial management, elder financial abuse investigation, investment fraud investigation and securities litigation.

“We are pleased that Mr. Spears and his lawyer have today conceded in a filing that he must be removed. It is vindication for Britney. We are disappointed, however, by their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms. Spears and others,” said Rosengart, in a statement, indicating that this is not the end of the legal battle between the two.

“We look forward to continuing our vigorous investigation into the conduct of Mr. Spears, and others, over the past 13 years, while he reaped millions of dollars from his daughter’s estate, and I look forward to taking Mr. Spears’s sworn deposition in the near future,” stated Rosengart.

Throughout 2021, Britney Spears has made a number of claims of abuse against her father, alleging he has used the conservatorship arrangement for personal gain, including his daughters assets that are valued at more than $50,000,000.

James Spears has publicly denied these accusations.
