Recently, the father of 39-year-old Britney Spears Jamie said that he is ready to resign from the position of her guardian, which he has held since 2007. However, now it turns out that he will not simply refuse custody. Britney's legal team claims that Jamie is demanding two million dollars in compensation from her daughter. This amount, according to him, will allow him to pay off the company Tri Star, which collaborated with the singer, as well as to cover legal costs.
On Monday, the star's lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, filed new documents with the court asking for the immediate removal of Jamie Spears from the position of Britney Spears ' guardian.
Jamie Spears should resign now, today, before he is suspended from his job. It would be the right and decent thing for him to do. Britney Spears will not be bullied or extorted by her father. Mr. Spears also has no right to try to hold his daughter hostage by setting the conditions for his refusal of custody. This is not about him, but about the best interests of his daughter, who, according to the law, prescribe that he resign,
Britney's lawyer also criticized the statement of Jamie Spears ' lawyers that his only motivation for continuing to work as a guardian of his daughter is his unconditional love for her and a fierce desire to protect her from those who try to take advantage of her.

— he added.
Recall that the custody battle between Britney Spears and her father broke out with renewed vigor after the singer's resonant performance in court in June. The singer revealed shocking details of her life over the past 13 years, talking about total control and blackmail by her guardians, and demanded the immediate removal of her father from this position.
