Britney Spears’ new lawyer, speaking publicly on her behalf for the first time, called on her father Jamie to voluntarily step down as her conservator, saying it was “in the best interest” of his client.
“Jamie Spears should be removed as conservator because it is in [the] best interest of the conservatee,” Mathew Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor and veteran entertainment litigator now representing the singer, said outside the courthouse Wednesday.
“We will be moving promptly and aggressively for his removal. The question remains, why is he involved? He should step down voluntarily because that’s what’s in the best interest of the conservatee,” he added.
Rosengart praised Spears' “courage, passion, and humanity” for speaking out in court, and called her testimony “clear, lucid, powerful, and compelling.”
“My firm and I will be taking a top to bottom look at what's happened over the past decade," said Rosengart.
