BRITNEY Spears’ mom Lynne spent “$2 MILLION of her daughter’s money” on a Louisiana mansion with full maid service, documents obtained by The Sun claim.
The explosive new court papers show Jamie Spears slamming his ex wife for her “absence” in Britney’s life as he steps down from the conservatorship after 13 years.
In new docs obtained by The Sun, Jamie, 68, maintains his innocent from any wrongdoing in the pop star’s life and even alleges he “saved Ms. Spears from disaster.”
He then claimed Lynne, 66, had “little if any” involvement in Britney’s life and was too “ignorant” to discuss the family’s legal matters.
“Lynne has had only limited involvement in Ms. Spears’ life these last thirteen years. She has not had a parental role in her life for decades,” his lawyers argued.
The patriarch’s legal team continued: “Despite their estranged relationship, the Conservatorship Estate, during the entire duration of the Conservatorship, has paid and continues to pay for the mansion in Louisiana where Lynne lives.
“Including all of her utility bills, weekly maid service, and all maintenance (totaling upwards of $150,000 per year and to date, nearly $2,000,000 in total).”
Since 2010, just after the conservatorship was put in place, Lynne has resided in a newly-constructed 3-bedroom home in Britney’s hometown of Kentwood, LA.
The sprawling property sits on nearly two acres of land and has multiple buildings on the compound.
Jamie’s lawyer continues to bash Lynne: “At Ms. Spears’ request and instruction, Lynne has had little if any involvement in the Conservatorship – let alone Ms. Spears’ life – for most of the thirteen years that it has been in place.
“The Court cannot rely on the unsupported claims and speculations of someone whom Ms. Spears has avoided speaking with for most of her adult life.
“Despite this, Mr. Spears or other members of the team of professionals often encouraged Ms. Spears to speak with her mother, with the hope of repairing that relationship, and Ms. Spears obliged sometimes.”
His team then alleges that the court must “question” Lynne’s previous testimony about Jamie’s treatment of their daughter in the conservatorship based on her “little involvement” and “lack of direct knowledge.”
They argue: “Lynne’s claims in her Declaration are demonstrably false, speculative, intentionally misleading, and/or conclusory.
LYNNE BEGS TO REMOVE JAMIE
“The Court, therefore, cannot rely on the Declaration of Lynne Spears as a basis for suspension or removal. Lynne’s argument, again, shows her ignorance of the duties and responsibilities that Mr. Spears has as Conservator.”
Last month, Lynne BEGGED the judge to remove Jamie as his daughter’s conservator.
“I submit this Declaration in Support of Conservatee’s Petition to Remove James P. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate,” she said in the court documents.
The letter continued: “I became involved in this conservatorship because I wanted to ensure that everything in my daughter’s life was handled in the best interests of my daughter the conservatee, which I did not believe at the time (and I still do not today) to be the case.”
She added that the relationship between Jamie and Britney “dwindled” due to “his behavior” including his “complete control over her, his mistrust of her, his coercion of her, his bartering.”
Lynne then claims that a “physical altercation” between Jamie and Britney’s kids – her grandchildren – was “perhaps the most appalling and inexcusable, and understandably destroyed whatever was left of a relationship between them.”
She concludes that it is “clear” that Jamie is “incapable of putting my daughter’s interests ahead of his own on both a professional and a personal level and that his being and remaining a conservator of my daughter’s estate is not in the best interests of my daughter, the conservatee.”
BRITNEY’S MAJOR VICTORY
Earlier today, new court papers filed by Jamie’s lawyer stated he will be stepping down as his daughter’s conservator.
“Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests.
“So, even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter’s new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator,” the docs claim.
Jamie’s team then insists in the court papers: “Regardless of his formal title, Mr. Spears will always be Ms. Spears’ father, he will always love her unconditionally, and he will always look out for her best interests.”
He also took responsibility for claiming he saved Britney when she was “in crisis, desperately in need of help” 13 years ago.
