Update: Andrew Wallet, Britney’s ex co-conservator did not retire as an attorney. He is very much working, just not for Britney any further.
The lawyer largely responsible for re-making Britney Spears‘ career is resigning his position as co-conservator of her estate, leaving just her father Jamie in charge.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Andrew Wallet filed his notice of resignation on Monday and is hoping the court will approve it ASAP.
Wallet states, “The conservatorship is engaged in numerous ongoing business activities requiring immediate attention and it therefore is in the best interest of the conservatee that the acceptance of Wallet’s resignation and the issuance of amended letters of conservatorship of the estate occur immediately and without delay.”
He adds, “Substantial detriment, irreparable harm and immediate danger will result to the conservatee and her estate if the relief requested herein in not granted on an ex parte basis.”
Jamie Spears, Britney’s dad, will be her sole conservator once the paperwork is approved.
The Spears patriarch had a recent health scare forcing Britney to cancel several dates of her Las Vegas residency.
Wallet was appointed co-conservator of Britney Spears’ estate back in 2008, following a period of erratic behavior by the singer. He is credited with reinventing her career and getting her affairs back on track.
As The Blast first reported, conservatorship docs recently revealed that Spears is now worth around $56 million.
