Britney Spears has called her father Jamie ‘threatening’ and ‘scary’ in new court filings requesting Mr. Spears be replaced as the conservator of her estate.

If the request is granted, Rubin would be given financial authority to manage Spears’ estate and assets as well as the powers of attorney to make health care decisions.
In the past, Britney’s health care decisions have been the purview of her conservator of Britney’s person, who is currently Jodi Montgomery.
The damning court docs depict Mr. Spears as an incompetent financial manager, saying his family ‘struggled financially under his leadership and filed for bankruptcy in 1998.’
This is despite the fact he earned millions off of his daughters tours and concert residencies, with the document estimate Mr. Spears’ raked in $2.1million from his cut of her Vegas residency alone.
Furthermore, Britney’s legal team said her relationship with Jamie is ‘venomous’ and ‘it impairs Ms. Spears’s mental health, her well-being, and her ability to pursue and continue with her extraordinary career.’
The filings also contend that while Spears’ may have needed the support and oversight of a conservatorship 13 years ago, her mental health has drastically improved since.

‘Since receiving professional medical care at the outset of this conservatorship over thirteen years ago, Ms. Spears is clearly in a different place now, and she has been for many years,’ the court docs explained.
‘The entire world has witnessed Ms. Spears working tirelessly — with astonishing dedication, precision, and excellence — as a musical artist and performer, an exceptional earner for Mr. Spears (and others) who had a financial interest in making sure she would continue to work and perform.’
Furthermore, the documents break down Spears’ financial assets.
She currently reports $2,730,454 in cash holdings and $57,666,398 in non-cash assets, but that is likely only a portion of her financial portfolio.
Additionally there are multiple Morgan Stanley accounts listed and her homes are valued at $8,455,483.
A hearing regarding Rubin is set for December 13th and according to the filings Miss Spears plans to personally attend.
