Britney Spears is afraid of her father and will not perform again until he steps down as conservator of her estate.
TMZ reports that the embattled pop star’s lawyer, Sam Ingham, made the statement during a hearing on Tuesday (November 10th) where Spears’s mother, Lynn, also urged Jamie Spears to step down.
The singer also accused her father of paying her former manager hundreds of thousands of dollars she should not have been responsible for.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Jamie changed her agreement with management company, Tri Star Sports in 2019, resulting in a payout of more than $300,000.
Tri Star has represented Britney for more than ten years for five percent of the singer’s gross entertainment-related income. When Britney took her “indefinite work hiatus” in early 2019, her dad agreed to keep them at the same commission rate with a guaranteed $500,000 minimum.
Britney’s team calls these “radical new arrangements” and is seeking to disallow the $309,000 payment and credit it back to her accounting.
