“Based on the information on the public archive, and the history of alleged mental health problems, I am shocked that the conservation has stopped without a current assessment of mental health,” said Victoria J. Haneman, a professor of trust and estate law at Creighton University. . “I had no doubt that a clear path to cessation would be agreed upon, but I did not think after a million years that everything would end today.”
In this case, the singer’s comprehensive summary as a conservative seemed to suffice.
One of the best-selling artists of all time, Ms. Spears has released four of her nine studio albums while under the preservation, including, most recently, “Glory” in 2016. She has appeared on television, serving as a judge on “The X” . Factor ”in 2012, and even toured internationally, although most of her performances were part of a strictly controlled Las Vegas residency.
Beginning in 2013, “Britney: Piece of Me” ran for four years at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, reaching a reported $ 138 million through nearly 250 shows. Next Vega show, “Britney: Domination”, was canceled in 2019.
The millions of Ms. Spears accumulated in her career will continue to be handled in detail while the many lawyers and other professionals who have been involved in the preservation proceedings seek approval from the court to be paid.
Up to this point, all expenses incurred in the case – including the legal fees of those fighting against Mrs Spears ’wishes – had been billed to the singer’s estate. Mr Rosengart made a formal objection to a request for fees from former lawyers for Mr Spears, calling the totals – some related to “media matters” in defense of the conservation – “scandalous and excessive.”
Others seeking payment include Mr. Rosengart; Mr. Ingham, Mrs. Spears’ former lawyer; another company he brought on board for process assistance; Mrs. Montgomery and her lawyers; and attorneys for Lynne Spears, the singer’s mother and an “interested party” in the conservatory since 2019. Further hearings on the case are scheduled for Dec. 8 and Jan. 19.
