James Spears agreed to be dismissed as his daughter’s curator on Thursday, according to Britney Spears’ attorney.
“We are pleased that Mr. Spears and his attorney admitted in a file today that he needs to be removed. It’s a justification for Britney. However, we are disappointed with their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms. Spears and others, ”said Mathew Rosengart, the singer’s attorney, in a statement.
Rosengart started representing the singer last month. As Britney Spears’ new attorney, Rosengart filed a motion in late July to replace her father with Jason Rubin, a chartered accountant, as the pop star’s sole curator.
Rubin is a Principal at Certified Strategies, a firm experienced in asset management, investigating elderly financial abuse, investing fraud investigations and securities litigation.
The singer’s net worth is estimated at more than $ 50 million. She has made several allegations of abuse against her father, claiming he used the agreement for personal gain. James Spears has publicly denied these allegations.
When James Spears encountered health issues in 2019, Jodi Montgomery, a licensed private trustee, was appointed to a temporary position within the Conservatory group. Montgomery is reportedly on board with Spears’ desire to lift guardianship and is very much liked by the singer.
