Britney Spears’ temporary conservator, and care manager filed for divorce from her husband and business partner right in the middle of Britney’s latest round of mental health issues.
As we reported, Jaime Spears asked that Jodi Montgomery be given the power to be Britney’s conservator. The judge in the case approved the switch. In his filing, he said Jodi had been Britney’s care manager for about a year.
But, according to legal docs obtained by The Blast, Jodi Montgomery filed for divorce in June from her husband Jack after 21 years of marriage.
Here’s why its interesting, Jodi and Jack own a business together called Pais Montgomery Fiduciary which specializes in cases like Britney Spears.
Presumably, the team was hired to handle Britney’s case, with Jodi taking the lead.
In the divorce filing, Jodi and Jack Montgomery were married in 1997 and date listed for separation is New Years Day of 2019.
So, what happens now? Jodi is asking to have all income earned after the date of separation to be her separate property. Also, she has asked for her name be put back to Jodi Lynn Pais.
The question clearly becomes, is Britney a client of the firm? Or is Jodi handling this very special case outside of the business with her estranged husband.
The company the ex-couple owns together is called Pais Montgomery Fiduciary, and per their website, provides “expert, reliable, and insightful case management and offers expertise in managing businesses, working with limited partnerships, resolving contentious family issues, maximizing and protecting the value of intellectual property rights, managing real property assets, and developing and executing plans to optimize trust finances.”
Jodi was granted temporary conservatorship of Britney Spears this week, and in the order, she “shall have the power to retain caretakers for (Britney) on a 24hr/7 day basis. The power to retain security guards for (Britney) on a 24 hour/7 day basis.” Also, she will have the power to communicate with Spears’ doctors about her “medical treatment, diagnosis, and testing.”
