Mathew Rosengart has also provided new details on the upcoming marriage of the American pop star.


Britney Spears' attorney Mathew Rosengart has filed papers requesting the immediate termination of Jamie Spears’s conservatorship over Britney. The documents demanding ending the 13-year conservatorship once and for all were presented on Wednesday.

The lawyer has suggested that Britney get free without undergoing mental health or medical evaluations since she does not need to experience these unnecessary procedures.

"If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance."

On September 7 Jamie himself filed documents to put an end to the conservatorship, saying that his daughter was entitled to live her own life and he wanted nothing but the best for her.

Rosengart has also accused Jamie of mismanagement of Britney’s finances and claimed that the father asked $2 mln to step down as her conservator.

“In fact, prior to assuming the post of conservator, his own modest finances were in array and he filed for bankruptcy. Relatedly, although our investigation is ongoing and further investigation is warranted, Mr. Spears’s mismanagement of Ms. Spears’s Estate is evident and ongoing."

Another reason presented in favor of ending the conservatorship was the engagement with Sam Asghari. Rosengart believes that even though Jamie does not control his daughter’s personal life, he is still able to affect it and interfere in their prenuptial negotiations.

"The prenuptial agreement process will require communication with and cooperation from the Conservator of her Estate but, as referenced above and well-established in the record, given that Ms. Spears’s relationship with that Conservator (her father) is broken, Mr. Spears’s continued involvement would impede the ability to negotiate and consummate a contract that all can agree is in Ms. Spears’s best interests."

The next court hearing has been scheduled for September 29.

Britney has been fighting to end her father’s conservatorship for several years and described their relations as toxic and abusive. It was imposed on her in 2008 after a series of mental breakdowns and health problems.
