Britney Spears' dad argues mom Lynne 'exploited' singer's 'pain and trauma' with book release: court docs

Holland & Caballero, the firm representing Jamie in the ongoing case, filed a preliminary response on Monday in a Los Angeles court decrying claims Lynne made just last week in opposition to his legal fees request totaling over $ 890,000.

Lynne Spears is not acting in the best interests of the Conservatee. She has not been involved in her daughter’s conservatorship until very recently, and she is now raising objections to fees related to matters that she has no knowledge of,” Holland & Caballero (H&K) claimed in the court filing obtained by Fox News.

Jamie now claims Lynne iscausing undue delay and expense” en el caso, “and ironically, stirring up more unnecessary media attention.

Jamie’s attorneys also balk at Lynne’s claim that Jamie and his attorneys are on anational media tour,” writing that they’vebeen very cautious, limited, and thoughtful in dealing with the media.They also accuse Lynne of the same thing she accused Jamie of by citing her previously published book about Britney, 39, which they claimexploited her daughter’s pain and trauma for personal profit.

Jamie’s filing did not name the title of Lynne’s libro. sin embargo, Lynne has published two books related to her pop star daughter. En 2008, the singer’s mom publishedThrough the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid Worldabout both of her daughters, Britney and Jamie Lynn, 30. Britney and her mother also jointly penned “Britney Spears: Heart to Heart” en 2000.

The law firm also accused Lynne of serving Britney’s previous manager Sam Lutfi’s attorneys with her objections to H&K’s legal fees. The firm questions if this was anintentional act or careless error.

The court does not need to be reminded about Mr. Lutfi,” argues Jamie’s counsel, noting that Britney has obtained two permanent restraining orders against him and was embroiled in a seven-year legal battle with the ex-manager who sued the conservatorship back in 2009.

In terms of Lynne’s claim that Jamie’s legal fees request wasimproper,” his attorneys claim the orderdoes not contain any language whatsoever that limits or restricts which attorneys at H&K are permitted to work on the case.

The firm also disputes Lynne’s claim that the fee request issubstantively improperdue to its media-related work.

This argument ignores the fact that the Conservatete has always been, and continues to be, the subject of increasingly intense media scrutiny both in traditional news media as well as on social media and most recently documentary films,” the filing states.

Lynne’s argument that the hours H&K racked up to work on the case was also disputed. H&K claimsno other law firmdid similar work.


“Segundo, the argument is based on an incorrect and misleading statement that all H&K did was brief four issues and appear for four hearings. Even a cursory review of Ms. [Vivian] Thoreen’s Declaration in Support of the Fee Petition shows that there were many more issues, objections, and disputes that H&K assisted the Conservator with, and more importantly, that H&K’s work far surpassed merely briefing issues and appearing for hearings (and it should be noted those tasks took significant time to do properly.

H&K now asks the court to overrule Lynne’s objection and concluded with the argument that Lynne isnot a party directly involved in the litigation.

As reported last week, la “Tóxico” singer’s mom claimed that the hours H&K talliedare utterly excessive. The fee applications were filed for work that took place during the period of Oct. 17, 2020 and Feb. 28, 2021.

The correspondence on the issue of Jamie’s fee request is likely to continue at a court hearing scheduled for the conservatorship on Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles. A rep for Lynne Spears did not immediately respond to Fox News’ petición de comentario.
