Britney Spears is free to wreck her life on her own terms.
In Los Angeles, Judge Brenda Penny has granted a petition by the singer’s new lawyer suspending Jamie Spears, Britney’s father, from his position as conservator of his daughter’s $60 million estate.
In court, Mathew S. Rosengart, who took over as the singer’s lawyer in July, saidL “This man does not belong in her life, your honor, for another day. Please hear the plea of my client.”
The court named John Zabel, a California account previously disparaged by Jamie Spear, as the temporary conservator of the singer’s finances. This was Britney’s request.
A date was set for November 12th to end officially this conservatorship that’s been in place for 13 years. Public pressure caused everyone involved to cave despite the evidence that Britney has mental issues and probably cannot run her own estate.
But she’s old enough to take that chance and succeed or fail on her own terms. Whatever happens now, it’s on her. As for her father, I’m there will be investigations into how he handled her money and how much he benefited from his position.
Zabel will be the new man in charge of working with Britney and her lawyers. His company is called Media Finance Structures, and he’s well known in the movie and entertainment business.
