Britney Spears' lawyer Mathew Rosengart BLASTS father Jamie

Britney Spears‘ lawyer Mathew Rosengart has called her father Jamie Spears a ‘reported alcoholic and gambling addict’ in new legal documents, as they fight over who should take over the singer’s conservatorship. 

Jamie, 68, filed legal documents trying to challenge the person Rosengart has chosen to replace him to oversee Britney’s estate – according to TMZ – CPA John Zabel who has an ‘impeccable record of serving in positions of trust.’

Despite Zabel also being described as a ‘highly-esteemed, nationally-recognized, and an award-winning CPA,’ Britney’s father has been trying to challenge the appointment. 

However, Rosengart has hit back at Jamie’s concerns, saying he has ‘zero financial background or experience in financial matters, who previously filed for bankruptcy and has a Domestic Violence Restraining Order currently in effect against him.’

Rosengart goes further in his response, saying Jamie is ‘incompetent’ and complains about his “abuse of his daughter (which evidently goes back to her childhood), and the dissipation of Estate assets.’

The legal documents filed by Rosengart are also said to mention the recent allegations that Jamie engineered secret recordings in Britney’s bedroom. 

Meanwhile TMZ also reported Tuesday that renowned psychiatrist Dr. Charles Sophy was approached by Britney’s team to see if she was being over-medicated. 

Sophy claimed that there was a concern Britney was being ‘excessively pumped full of drugs’ to the point where she was ‘not able to clearly speak for herself.’ 

However, Sophy said he declined the opportunity to evaluate her.

Meanwhile, on Monday it was reported that Britney’s father Jamie could be investigated by the FBI after it was claimed that he hired a security company to monitor his daughter’s communications  – including what went on in her bedroom – without her knowledge or consent.

Deadline reported that the FBI are looking into whether the law was broken, with Jamie Spears insisting his daughter knew of the surveillance arrangements.

Under Californian law, both parties must consent to a conversation being recorded.

They have triggered a furious response from Britney’s lawyers who say the allegations are further evidence as to why her conservatorship should be urgently ended. 

‘Mr. Spears has crossed unfathomable lines,’ said the singer’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, in a court filing on Monday in advance of a hearing on the conservatorship scheduled for Wednesday. 

‘While they are not evidence, the allegations warrant serious investigation, certainly by Ms. Spears as, among other things, California is a ‘two-party’ consent state.’

His furious remarks were a reference to a New York Times documentary released on Hulu Friday detailing the surveillance claims. 

Alex Vlasov, a former employee of Black Box Security, told The New York Times in a new documentary that the 39-year-old Spears’s phone calls and messages were secretly recorded as part of her 13-year conservatorship, overseen by her father.

Rosengart further told the paper that the allegations made by Vlasov warranted urgent inquiry.

He said it was yet further evidence of the mistreatment of the singer, who on June 23 told the court she was forced to have birth control implants; was forbidden from driving her car; and had no say in her most basic life decisions. 

‘Placing a listening device in Britney’s bedroom would be particularly inexcusable and disgraceful, and corroborates so much of her compelling, poignant testimony.

‘These actions must be fully and aggressively investigated.’

He said in Monday’s court documents that he intends to depose the 69-year-old, and that if he plead the Fifth Amendment it would be damning. 

It is unclear whether the court which managed the conservatorship had approved the recordings.

Britney Spears has not commented on the specific allegations that she was secretly recorded, but in an Instagram post on Monday said that the documentary, Controlling Britney Spears, had many factual errors.

‘I watched a little bit of the last documentary and I hate to inform you but a lot of what you heard is not true!!!’ she said.
