“My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship and my management who played a key role in punishing me — ma’am, they should be in jail,” Spears told the judge in June. “This conservatorship has allowed my dad to ruin my life.
“I would honestly like to sue my family, to be totally honest with you,” she said. “I want to be able to be heard on what they did to me by making me keep this in for so long.”
Jamie has repeatedly claimed that he only wants what’s “best” for his daughter while vehemently denying all allegations of conservatorship abuse.
Presumably quoting the tons of praise written online about her legacy, Spears noted that she’s a “multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning pop icon,” with “nearly 100 million records sold worldwide.”
“Spears has sold 33.6 million albums in the U.S. and ranks as the 18th-best selling album artist in the Nielsen era,” the caption continued. “Her songs have drawn 25 billion in cumulative radio airplay audience and 2.6 billion on-demand U.S. audio and video streams combined and she’s sold 39.8 million singles.”
“Yes … I will be my own cheerleader … why ???? I’m here to remind my white ‘classy’ family that I haven’t forgotten what they did to me nor will I ever forget,” she added.
According to the filings, Jamie and his legal team maintained that the payment would be “necessary” to ensure that the outstanding financial arrangements of the conservatorship “can be wound up quickly and efficiently.”
And as Variety reported, Jamie’s legal counsel, Alex Weingarten, charges a rate of approximately $1,200 per hour.
Rosengart added, “[Spears] poignantly testified about the pain her father caused her and this only adds to it. This is not what a father who loves his daughter does.”
