Britney Spears will not be impeached in conservatorship case: judge

Britney Spears will not have to sit for a statement in her conservatorship case, a Los Angeles judge ruled Wednesday.

Spears’ attorney, Mathew Rosengart, said in court that the pop star “feels traumatized by what she’s been through” and would be traumatized again if she had to discuss her nearly 14-year conservatorship under oath.

Rosengart and Jamie’s attorney, Alex Weingarten, have been trying to rip off each other’s clients for months after Britney, 40, described her conservatorship as “offensive” in a passionate public court speech in June 2021.

Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor, has alleged that Jamie, 70, enriched himself with at least $6 million while serving as his daughter’s conservator from the start of the legal settlement in February 2008 until his suspension in September 2021.

Jamie has also been accused of spying on Britney by secretly tapping her cell phone and placing an audio recording device in her bedroom, which he denied.

Weingarten, meanwhile, argued that Britney should have been the one who should have been impeached, as she has made scathing accusations about her father in court and on social media.

But as Rosengart pointed out, Britney had little to no information to share after being stripped of her personal, medical, and financial rights at her conservatory, which was instituted after she endured a series of battles in the public eye.

Britney, whose conservatorship was terminated in November 2021, secured another legal victory earlier this month when a judge ruled that Jamie must sit before August 12 for impeachment and hand over all documents in his possession.

At Wednesday’s hearing, which is still underway, Judge Brenda Penny is also expected to rule on whether Britney’s embattled former business manager Lou Taylor and Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group employee Robin Greenhill should sit for statements and any relevant papers they have.

Rosengart previously claimed that Tri Star harvested at least $18 million from Britney’s estate during the conservatorship of the singer “Toxic”.

A former employee of Britney’s security team, meanwhile, claimed that Greenhill was helping Jamie keep an eye on his daughter, whom Taylor’s lawyer, Charles Harder, called “false.”

Wednesday’s hearing may also see the judge grant or deny Britney’s mother Lynne Spears’ request for the Grammy winner to pay her legal fees.

Lynne, 67, said she wanted Britney to pay her lawyers’ bill of more than $660,000 because “the status quo would have persisted” had she not become involved with the conservatory, but Rosengart claimed the Spears- matriarch had “no legal basis” to seek more of her ‘breadwinner’ daughter’s money as a ‘third party’ in the case.

Since being released from her conservatory, Britney has married her longtime love, Sam Asghari, and has recorded her first new song in six years.
