Britney Spears’ Conservator, Jodi Montgomery, Denies Jamie Spears’ Claim She’s Responsible For Britney’s ‘Suffering’
Britney Spears‘ conservator, Jodi Montgomery, is responding to a filing by Jamie Spears that claims she is responsible for the singer’s hardships, which Britney testified about last week. The court documents denied that Jamie had any part in her daughter’s conservatorship, at least not since he stepped down from the position in September 2019. He argued Montgomery was responsible for the “day-to-day personal care and medical treatment” and that Britney never signed off on Montgomery’s nomination as conservator.
The filing read, “Ms. Spears told the Court on June 23 that she opposed being under a conservatorship and revealed her ongoing disputes with Ms. Montgomery about her medical treatment and other personal care issues. These statements contradict the notion that Ms. Spears would seek to have Ms. Montgomery appointed as her permanent Conservator of the Person.”
Jamie’s attorney Vivian Lee Thoreen added, “Mr. Spears, therefore, was greatly saddened to hear of his daughter’s difficulties and suffering, and he believes that there must be an investigation into those claims.”
Jamie’s filing comes after Britney’s testimony, which the documents called “heartfelt,” revealed that she had been forced to wear an IUD and had been prevented from getting married again.
Montgomery’s lawyer Lauriann Wright slammed the claim and said that her client had been “a tireless advocate” for the 39-year-old pop star. Her lengthy statement accused Jamie of responsibility for his daughter’s suffering, as the controller of her estate.
The statement read, “Practically speaking, since everything costs money, no expenditures can happen without going through Mr. Spears and Mr. Spears approving them. Ms. Montgomery has advocated on Britney’s behalf for any expenditures that Britney has requested as well as for expenditures recommended by Britney’s medical team.”
“Not every requested expenditure has been approved,” the statement continued. “Jamie Spears, as conservator of the estate, has a duty to make decisions in the best interests of the estate, and sometimes that has meant requested expenditures have been denied or limited.”
