The 41-year-old pop star was in a conservatorship from September 2008 to November 2021, but the legal battles against her father, Jamie Spears, have not ended there, and it looks like the “Hold Me Closer” singer has paid so much in legal fees that Rosengart will reportedly finish his work on her case pro bono.
Britney Spears Paid Mathew Rosengart Over $4M, Mostly For Legal Fees After Her Conservatorship Ended!
Sources have said that the “Toxic” singer has paid Mathew Rosengart so much in legal fees that he is willing to work pro bono as he finishes up her case. Insiders told TMZ on Friday morning that Britney has paid him $4,201,856.00, just from November 2021 to March 2023.
Considering that her conservatorship was struck down by a judge in November 2021, it looks like the bulk of his legal fees happened after her conservatorship was already over. That being said, other sources told the outlet that the $4.2 million is only a fraction of the cost she’s paid and that the real total is now somewhere around $6 million.
Sources said that Britney’s team took issue with Rosengart’s high prices, which is why he has agreed to work pro bono for the rest of the legal case against her father, Jamie Spears. Rosengart has been heavily involved in different areas of Britney’s life, not only related to her conservatorship.
He has also been involved with her music deals and her upcoming memoir, which is reportedly delayed due to legal revisions. Although it was supposed to come out later this year, it remains to be seen when the untitled book will come out as it undergoes more legal revisions.
Mathew Rosengart Got Involved In Britney’s Dispute Against Kevin Federline
In August 2022, Britney’s ex-husband, Kevin Federline, leaked three videos that were reportedly taken by their two teenage sons when they were only 11 and 12 years old. The videos were posted after K-Fed alleged that her two sons didn’t want to see her due to her NSFW Instagram posts.
In a lengthy statement issued to TMZ, Mathew Rosengart slammed Kevin Federline for sharing the videos of Britney online without her permission and threatened to take legal action against him if the videos weren’t taken down. The videos were later removed.
In the statement, Rosengart wrote, “Britney Spears is a brilliantly-talented, extremely-hardworking icon, who is rightfully beloved and respected by millions around the world. The same, unfortunately, cannot be said about Mr. Federline, who for reasons that are inexplicable, decided to give a gratuitous interview that has hurt the mother of his children.”
Rosengart is talking about the Daily Mail interview that was published only a week prior, in which Kevin said that the two boys were purposely trying to distance themselves from the pop star.
“Britney has faithfully supported her children she loves them dearly,” Rosengart continued. “Whether he realizes it or not, Mr. Federline has not only violated the privacy and dignity of the mother of his children, he has undermined his own children, whose privacy he should protect. Putting aside his ITV interview, Mr. Federline’s ill-advised decision to post an old video of his 11 and 12 year old children was cruel, bottom of the barrel stuff. It was abhorrent.”
“In addition to demeaning himself and violating societal norms, he has now also created various legal issues for himself including, but not limited to, implicating cyber-harassment and cyber-bullying statues, among other things,” he continued, insinuating that they were ready to take legal action against him.
“It has been my honor to work with Britney, to suspend her father as conservator, to help her gain her freedom and dignity, and to help protect her from the type of bullying she endured in the past – and we will not tolerate bullying from any area.”
“We are working with Instagram to ensure that Mr. Federline adheres to its rules and we are exploring all appropriate relief against him. In the meantime, as Britney herself poignantly said, whatever is occurring between her and her boys should remain private,” he concluded. “We urge Mr. Federline to act with a measure of grace and decency and to cease from publicly discussing private matters, which benefits no one.”
