Britney Spears follows through with her desire to free herself from her father, Jamie Spears.
The singer and her attorney have filed legal documents to officially remove Jamie as guardian of her estate, and Britney has nominated the professional trustee. Jason Rubin as his new financial guardian, per the July 26 petition obtained by E! News.
Jason, who is licensed by the Office of Professional Trustees, is also a Certified Public Accountant and works with Certified Strategies, Inc., according to the filing. He has experience monitoring assets worth more than $ 35 million, according to his website.
“Our staff are California licensed professional fiduciaries and have been appointed by the court to serve as guardians,” says the Certified Strategies website. “We are committed to providing dedicated and compassionate services to meet the diverse needs and special circumstances of each and every client, including residency, medical care, recreation, and rehabilitation. We seek to restore peace and facilitate conflict resolution. between family members and related parties. “
The court document reveals that Britney has 2.7 million in cash assets and 54.7 million in non-cash assets, making her estate worth $ 57.4 million.
Britney’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart, requested that Jason be given the powers to run her businesses, make investments for her, and receive power of attorney.
He also asked that Jason be given “additional powers,” including the ability to authorize his career opportunities (such as acting, recording, videos, tours, and television shows), provided that his personal guardian and medical team approve. .
Jason’s additional powers would include permission to: “take all necessary actions” to secure his estate; revoke powers of attorney, including health care decision-making and real estate management; maintaining litigation over Britney, including prosecution of civil harassment restraining orders; deal with Britney’s taxes and bills and hire lawyers, accountants, agents and employees and pay their expenses.
During her recent court testimony, Britney has said that she wants her guardianship to end. But if that’s not possible, she at least wants to remove Jamie as guardian of her estate, a position she has held since she was placed in guardianship in 2008.
Britney’s persona’s temporary guardian, Jodi Montgomery, is approved in her position until October 8. Jodi’s security concerns were a topic of discussion during a court hearing on July 26, in which E! News was present. However, Brit’s lawyer, Mathew, requested that the conversation continue at another time, because they are still working to reach an agreement.
After the court hearing, he said in a statement to reporters, “Less than two weeks ago, we promised that after 13 years of the status quo, my firm and I would act aggressively and quickly to file a petition to suspend and remove James P. Spears … We have done it, in less than two weeks. We look forward to litigating the matter in court. “
The attorney also thanked his client, saying, “Once again I want to thank Britney Spears for her courage and strength. I want to thank her fans who have been incredibly supportive of her on social media, across the country and around the world. And she he deserves it and appreciates it. “
