Britney Spears' new attorney, legal bulldog Mathew Rosengart, has filed a motion in court to officially remove her father as her conservator.
The court filing comes as no surprise, as the former prosecutor had already said his goal is to get a new conservator for Britney's estate. Via the paperwork, Britney said she wants Jason Rubin to be named her estate conservator, calling it an "objectively intelligent preference to nominate a highly qualified, professional fiduciary in this circumstance."
"This petition is being filed concurrently with a petition for removal of current conservator of the estate, James Spears," the motion read.
Britney and her attorney argued Jamie Spears has essentially terrorized the pop star over the course of the 13-year conservatorship. The documents say that father and daughter have a "venomous" relationship that's "traumatizing, insane and depressing."
"It impairs Ms. Spears's mental health, her well-being, and her ability to pursue and continue with her extraordinary career," the docs allege, while also claiming Jamie is ill-equipped to even handle Britney's business affairs.
The documents do subtly acknowledge that it might have been necessary for Jamie to take over the reins of Britney's life back in 2008, but he's since overstepped, the filing intimates.
"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 filing says. "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."
The documents, according to TMZ, also laid out how much Jamie has personally collected while steering Britney's career. Jamie apparently gets $16,000 a month plus $2,000 a month for office expenses. Additionally, he got 1.5 percent of the gross from Britney's massively successful Las Vegas residency show. (It's estimated that he pocketed more than $2 million.) It's also believed that he got about $500,000 from Britneys' 2011 Femme Fatale tour.
Britney's lawyer even included a quote from Forbes that says Britney's net worth is "shockingly low" given much her tours have raked in over the decades. Jamie, the lawyer says, is the reason for that.
