Britney Spears refuses to pay $600,000 in legal bills incurred during her mother’s conservatorship lawsuit.

Britney Spears has refused to pay $600,000 in legal bills incurred by her mother during the fight to dissolve her conservatorship.

In 2021, the 40-year-old singer was released from her family’s conservatorship.

Britney Spears attacked her mother Lynne Spears this week, comparing her to her sloppy on-screen mother in Crossroads.

She has now turned down a proposition to pay her legal bills.

Britney’s mother requested for $663,202.84 in payments from her daughter’s estate for fees paid throughout the conservatorship procedure shortly before it was terminated.

However, Britney’s lawyers said in court records obtained by the PA news agency that her mother was not an official party participating in the conservatorship.

Britney’s lawyers stated that she had “consistently and generously” supported her mother financially for years and that she no longer had the legal ability to do so.

“Lynne Spears and her counsel request payment of more than $660,000 in legal fees and charges from Britney Spears,” according to paperwork filed by her lawyer Matthew Rosengart in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 5.

“Britney Spears is completely opposed to the Petition.”

The document went on to say: “Britney Spears has been the sole breadwinner in her family for decades, supporting her entire family.

“It’s worth noting that Lynne Spears has lived in Britney Spears’s large, expensive house in Kentwood, Louisiana, for at least a decade, for which her daughter has also continuously – and generously – paid Lynne Spears’s utilities, phone services, insurance, property taxes, landscaping, pool work, pest control, repairs, and maintenance, totaling approximately $1.7 million (£1.3 million).

“The Petition cites no authority to support the conclusion that a conservatorship estate (or, in this example, a former conservatee’s estate) can be made financially liable for the attorney’s fees of a third party such as Petitioner.”

In a November petition, Lynne Spears stated that she was seeking the costs to assist her daughter in overcoming her “crisis” and achieving “independence from her conservator father James Spears.”

James Spears, or Jamie Spears, has also requested that his daughter’s estate pay his legal bills, claiming that he has “stepped up” and held “opportunistic and entirely self-interested parties at bay.”

The judge has not yet made a judgment on Lynne Spears’ legal fees, and the case will be heard again in July.
