Britney Spears’ mother has just withdrawn her request for the pop star to pay her massive legal bills, just a day after making a final push to get the money.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Lynne Spears informed the court she is no longer looking for Britney to pay her large legal bill, but it’s unclear why it was done. In the filing, Lynne simply states she is stopping the attempts to get the large sum from the singer.
“Lynne B. Spears, an interested party and mother of the former Conservatee Britney Jean Spears (“Ms. Spears”), hereby withdraws her Petition for Reimbursement of Attorney Fees,” the document states.
Did Britney Spears Pay Her Mother’s Massive Legal Bill?
This is shocking, considering just 24 hours earlier, Lynne was pushing the court to pay the monster bill — even explaining why her involvement was so important to Britney getting out of the conservatorship and stopping doctors from giving her powerful narcotics.
We broke the story, Spears’ mom specifically pointed out that she was responsible for the pop star getting off Lithium. “Factually, the beginning of the end of the abusive conduct, and indeed the conservatorship itself, started at that court hearing at which Lynne Spears first appeared in May of 2019. The Court ordered a medical review. The lithium stopped. Ms. Spears could see her children and was allowed to travel,” she wrote.
Adding, “Five months later, in September of 2019, her father temporarily resigned as the Conservator of her Person. After nearly eleven straight years of an unchallenged Conservatorship, five months after Lynne Spears intervened as an interested party, the structure of the conservatorship was upended, and the direct beneficiary of that change was Britney Spears.”

At this point, it’s unclear if the news coverage or reaction to the request is why Lynne Spears decided to pull the plug on her request, or if it was simply paid. It’s possible, the final request pushed the two sides to come to an agreement about payment. Again, this is a request by Lynne’s lawyers to Britney’s lawyers for money. The latest document does not say which way this thing went.
As we reported, Lynne was asking the court to order Britney to cover over $600,000 in legal fees. Over half a million dollars of it was for one law firm alone.
So…why would Lynne think Britney would pay HER legal bills. Well, the pop star’s mother claims the work was done on Britney’s behalf. “Lynne Spears signed a contract with the undersigned, explaining to her attorneys at the outset that she and Ms. Spears wished them to modify the medical treatment of Ms. Spears, to exact change to the personal restrictions being imposed on Ms. Spears by her father the conservator of her person and estate at the time, to start the process of removing her father from those roles, and in the end, to terminate her conservatorship. All of those things were ultimately achieved,” she wrote.
In the past few weeks, Britney has made it very clear that she is bitter with her mom for allowing the conservatorship to go on as long as it did — so paying it in full was out of the question. What happened here? We may never know…
