Britney Spears is crying extortion in her latest court documents. The singer who is currently in a disappointing battle with her father Jamie Spears over her conservatorship has finally gotten the 69-year-old to step down only now, he is demanding $2 million in order to basically go quietly. HollywoodLife.com obtained documents filed by Spears legal team that pointed out her father is refusing to fully step down unless he gets the large sum of money, Spears allegedly finds these terms disturbing and is choosing to fight it out with daddy some more.
‘Britney Will Not Be Bullied Or Extorted’
The 39-year-old singer’s lawyer, Matt Rosengart commented on the documents to the publication. “The quid pro quo preconditions that Mr. Spears’s sought in his August 12, 2021 court filing are inappropriate and unacceptable.” The lawyer also clarified that the pop princess “will not be bullied or extorted by her father.” Rosengart likened Jamie’s grip on his daughter as a hostage move seeing as he refuses to settle and move on. “This is not about him, it is about the best interests of his daughter, which as a matter of law, mandate his removal.”
Pleading With Jamie
The singer’s lawyer even went as far as to publicly plead with Jamie to loosen his grip if he truly cares about his daughter. “If he loves his daughter, Mr. Spears should resign now, today, before he is suspended. It would be the correct and decent thing to do.” Rosengart is not the only person questioning Jamie’s motives. For a while, fans have been pinpointing the father as a horrible person for the death grip he has kept on his daughter and more so, her money. The legal aspect of this drama is only the latest move after a #FreeBritney movement.
What Will Britney Do?
The singer is now forced to make a choice to either give into her dad or fight tooth and nail, the singer has chosen the latter. Spears’s lawyer has shared that she is willing and ready to take the next steps to push her father out. If Jamie does not willfully step down, Britney wants the courts to suspend him and then he will have nothing! The singer’s father has been her conservator since 2009, almost two years after the singer had a meltdown in public, shaved her head, and attacked photographers with an umbrella.
