A Los Angeles judge on Thursday sided with Britney Spears’ legal team in granting a third party equal authority to her father in managing the finances of the 39-year-old pop star. Her father, Jimmy Spears, had objected to a previous ruling which she claimed had relaxed his control of the estate.
Judge Brenda Benny has ordered her father and the Bessemer Trust to work together on a budget and investment plan for the singer. In November, a judge appointed the company to the role but denied an attempt by Britney’s lawyer to remove Jimmy fromCompletely.
Jamie took custody in 2008 after Britney struggled with mental health issues.
On Thursday, Britney’s court-appointed attorney repeated his previous statements saying his client wanted to remove her father from custody. Attorney Sam Ingham said, “It is no secret that my client does not want her father to be her guard, but we understand that the removal is a separate issue.”
Jimmy’s lawyer, Vivien Touraine, claimed that the joint guardianship between Jaime and the Bessemer Trust was “unclear and vague by design”. But Angham disputed, saying the division of roles was not ambiguous and meant that they were equal.
Last year, Ingram said Britney had “vehemently opposed” her father’s position as the sole custodian of her property, and asked the court to limit his control. While the judge has not removed it, it has named the Bessemer Trust an associate of maintenance.
Jamie’s legal team argued that his guidance works. Under his order, his attorneys said, Britney’s estate went from being owed to a valuation of more than $ 60 million.
Late Thursday, Jimmy’s attorneys said he would welcome working with the restoration assistant. “Today’s Ten Commandments Court rulings demonstrate the court’s confidence in our client Jimmy Spears and the Basemmer Trust to manage Mrs. Spears’s property trust together,” his legal team said in a statement. “My clients look forward to working with Bessemer to continue the investment strategy in the interests of his daughter.”
