If the court approves, Britney Spears will have to pay nearly $2 million to father Jamie Spears' lawyers.
According to a new court document obtained by ET, the total costs and fees incurred from Jamie's attorneys (along with the attorneys retained by his attorneys) is nearly $2 million. The new document is a declaration in support of petition for order allowing and approving payment of: 1.) the compensation to conservator and attorneys for conservator and 2.) reimbursement of costs.
Jamie is also requesting the approval of his compensation as conservator -- including $16,000 a month, plus $2,000 monthly for the cost of office expenses -- from the Nov. 1, 2019 to Feb. 28, 2021 timeframe mentioned in the document.
The news comes a few weeks after ET reported that Britney’s attorney, Samuel Ingham, said during a virtual court hearing that he plans to file a petition and ask the court on their April 27 hearing to make Jodi Montgomery Britney's permanent conservator. Samuel clarified that he will be filing the petition to make Jodi permanent on behalf of Britney, rather than Jodi’s attorneys filing the petition.
