Change is coming! After pop legend Britney Spears’ newly hired attorney Mathew Rosengart declared he was “moving aggressively” to end Jamie Spears’ death grip on her finances as conservator, reports are surfacing that Rosengart has named who he wants to take over for papa Spears.
Rosengart has reportedly filed the necessary paperwork requesting that Jason Rubin be appointed as the “Toxic” singer's new conservator of her estate. Rubin — a licensed CPA — would handle all of Spears' legal deals.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Rubin would gain authority to manage Spears' estate, along with powers of attorney to make any health related decisions and manage her bustling real estate portfolio. The documents list Spears’ cash assets at $2,730,454, and her non-cash assets at $57,666,398.
Rosengart is also requesting that Rubin be able to “prosecute civil harassment restraining orders.” A scheduled hearing to determine if Rubin can take over for Jamie is scheduled for December 13. According to the outlet, Spears plans to personally attend.
The Grammy winner begged the court last month to be freed from the restraints of the conservatorship her estranged dad enacted in 2008 — following a series of public breakdowns — and told the judge, “I just want my life back.”
“I am not happy, I can’t sleep. I’m so angry, it’s insane. And I’m depressed,” she pleaded to the court on June 23. (As OK! previously reported, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge denied Britney’s request to remove her father as the conservator of her estate.)
Despite a few setbacks, Spears was handed a legal victory earlier this month when a judge ruled she could hire Rosengart to represent her following the resignation of her court-appointed attorney, Sam Ingham II.
After he was hired, Rosengart thanked the 39-year-old singer "for her courage and strength" and her fans for their undying love. "The outreach and support for my firm, myself and most importantly Britney has truly been overwhelming — coast to coast and literally throughout the world," he said on Monday, July 19.
