Britney Spears’ lawyer claims her father Jamie wants $2million in payments in exchange for his removal from conservatorship


Britney Spears’ lawyers have accused her father Jamie of “dragging his feet” over stepping down from his daughter’s conservatorship at her request.

Mr Spears, 69, has agreed to relinquish control of the US pop star’s finances.

He has overseen her multimillion dollar estate since she was deemed incapable of looking after herself in 2008.

This week, her lawyer Mathew S Rosengart demanded he step down as soon as possible, accusing him of trying to extort money from his daughter.

Last month, Mr Spears’ lawyer said he would be “in a position to step aside” when certain matters were resolved, and “when the time is right”.
