Britney SpearsProtection is actually a good thing, at least second Andrew Wallet, the attorney who was previously one of his co-conservatives for over a decade. He is the same man as his father, Jamie Spears, recently attempted to be reconfirmed as a co-conservative against the pop star’s wishes.
Friday, according to documents obtained by PeopleJamie’s lawyer withdrew his petition to return Wallet to his former position as co-conservator of the Spears estate after the singer called him “uniquely unsuitable” for the role. Wallet previously oversaw the singer’s finances starting in 2008, before voluntarily resigning in March 2019. Spears also expressed through court documents that, in addition to Wallet, “she is strongly opposed to having [Jamie] return as the keeper of his person. “
Now, Wallet is talking about these ongoing negotiations, telling al Daily mail, “It is not in Britney’s best interest to be outside guardianship, but a lot of politics is involved. Britney, to this day, does not have the ability to sign documents and make decisions on her own. Protecting her assets is very important and for this protection must remain in force because it is susceptible to undue influence “.
Wallet added that the #FreeBritney movement “has definitely complicated things. There are people lurking in the shadows pushing a program. I can’t say who, but he’s hurting Britney, she’s the only one getting hurt from all of this. “She continued,” Britney is in guardianship for good reason, but many people at Free Britney have no experience with the law … The more important question is whether guardianship is in her best interest. This is what you must always ask yourself and I still believe that protection is in his best interest. “
For now, Spears is not asking to be removed from her custody, but rather to have her longtime care manager. Jodi Montgomery, “Continue in that role as [she] has been doing it for nearly a year, “he said in August. Montgomery temporarily took over the position from Jamie last year after he resigned for health reasons. The singer also asks to” have a qualified corporate trustee appointed to fill this. management role, such as a bank. Spears’ voluntary protection request hearing is scheduled for November 10.
