An attorney for Britney Spears has filed a petition requesting the judge in her conservatorship case move up a hearing to determine immediately whether Jamie Spears will be removed as the co-conservator of his daughter’s estate, according to court documents obtained by CNN on Thursday.
The next hearing is currently set for September 29 but the singer’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart, has requested Judge Brenda Penny hold the hearing this month instead.
“Every day that passes is another day of avoidable harm and prejudice to Ms. Spears and the Estate,” the petition states. “Ms. Spears’s emotional health and well-being must be, and are, the paramount concern. Further, all interested parties forcefully agree that Mr. Spears’s continued presence as Conservator of the Estate is contrary to Ms. Spears’s best interests, health, and well-being, and that his prompt removal – or, at the very least, his immediate suspension – is ‘critical’ at this juncture.”
A representative for Jamie Spears could not immediately be reached for comment.
Rosengart has previously filed a petition to remove the elder Spears from his role as co-conservator and replace him with Jason Rubin, a CPA at Certified Strategies Inc. in Woodland Hills, California.
