The saga continues

Britney Spears has objected to paying the equivalent of €551,000 to foot her mother Lynne Spears' legal fees, accrued during the battle to end her conservatorship.

The singer's lawyer Mathew Rosengart argues that the star has "continuously and generously" supported Lynne Spears financially for years, as the family's "sole breadwinner", and is not legally required to pay out as her mother did not have an official role in the legal arrangement.

The pop star's controversial conservatorship governed by her family was officially terminated in 2021 after 13 years.

Shortly before it was brought to an end, Lynne Spears applied for payments from her daughter's estate for costs incurred during the process, to the value of $663,202.84.

Lynne Spears says she worked to help the star "achieve independence from her conservator father James Spears" and out of her "crisis".

Jamie Spears was in charge of the conservatorship for the majority of the time it was in place.

Britney addressed the court for the first time in 2021 and condemned her father for his role in the legal arrangement - Jamie Spears strenuously denies any wrongdoing.

Further hearings in the case are scheduled for July.
