Her lawyer is calling for his immediate resignation
Britney Spears’ new attorney has accused her father of trying to get about $2m in payments before stepping down from the conservatorship.
Earlier this month, Jamie Spears agreed to step down as the singer's conservator and was preparing for an "orderly transition".
However, new documents filed by the star's lawyer Mathew Rosengart argues the upcoming scheduled accounting of the conservatorship, which Jamie Spears says he wants completed before he steps down, will mean significant payments for him.
“Britney Spears will not be extorted,” the filing says.
“Mr Spears’s blatant attempt to barter suspension and removal in exchange for approximately $2 million in payments, on top of the millions already reaped from Ms Spears’s estate by Mr Spears and his associates, is a non-starter.”

The filing comes along with Rosengart’s July petition on the singer's behalf for the removal and suspension of Jamie Spears, which will be addressed at a September 29th hearing.
Jamie Spears stepped down as the overseer of the Toxic singer's personal life in 2019. However, he as remained in control of her finances.
Earlier this year, Britney told the court she just "wants her life back", and feels like she's been "exploited".
