Britney Spears calls dad Jamie ‘threatening and scary’ and requests CPA Jason Rubin as conservator

Britney Spears has called her father Jamie ‘threatening’ and ‘scary’ in new court filings that request he be replaced as the conservator of her estate.

The pop star’s lawyer Matt Rosengart has filed a motion to have Jamie removed and have Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Jason Rubin appointed in his place.

The new legal documents accuse Jamie of making his daughter’s life hell, and describe her current situation as ‘traumatizing, insane and depressing’ while also painting a portrait of a financially irresponsible conservator, according to TMZ.

Britney’s lawyer Matt Rosengart has requested Rubin, who practices out of Southern California, be appointed as conservator of her estate, citing his experience in handling financial and elder abuse cases in the past.

Certified Public Accountants offer financial statement audits and other attestation services to help inform investors about the financial health of organizations. 

They also provide individuals and families with valuable knowledge and advice on taxes and financial planning.

If the request is granted, Rubin would be given financial authority to manage Britney’s estate and assets as well as the powers of attorney to make health care decisions.

In the past, Britney’s health care decisions have been the purview of Britney’s co-conservator Jodi Montgomery. 

Jodi was brought on to co-manage Britney’s affairs in September 2019, when Jamie became ill and has remained in charge of Britney’s personal affairs, working as her ‘care manager’, while Jamie controls her fortune.

The damning court docs depict Jamie as an incompetent financial manager, saying his family ‘struggled financially under his leadership and filed for bankruptcy in 1998.’ 

This is despite the fact he earned millions off of his daughters tours and concert residencies, with the document estimate Jamie raked in $2.1million from his cut of her Vegas residency alone.

Furthermore, Britney’s legal team said her relationship with Jamie is ‘venomous’ and ‘it impairs Ms. Spears’s mental health, her well-being, and her ability to pursue and continue with her extraordinary career.’

The filings also contend that while Britney’ may have needed the support and oversight of a conservatorship 13 years ago, her mental health has drastically improved since. 

‘Since receiving professional medical care at the outset of this conservatorship over thirteen years ago, Ms. Spears is clearly in a different place now, and she has been for many years,’ the court docs explained. 

‘The entire world has witnessed Ms. Spears working tirelessly — with astonishing dedication, precision, and excellence — as a musical artist and performer, an exceptional earner for Mr. Spears (and others) who had a financial interest in making sure she would continue to work and perform.’

Furthermore, the documents break down Britney’s financial assets. 

She currently reports $2,730,454 in cash holdings and $57,666,398 in non-cash assets, but that is likely only a portion of her financial portfolio. 

Additionally there are multiple Morgan Stanley accounts listed and her homes are valued at $8,455,483.

A hearing regarding Rubin is set for December 13th and according to the filings Britney plans to personally attend.
