Britney Spears Financial Battle

Britney Spears is still in a legal battle with her father Jamie Spears after her attorney accused him of misappropriating large amounts of money, according to TMZ.

Mathew Rosengart, Britney’s attorney, has reached out to Jamie’s lawyer and Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group lawyers to settle the case. Both teams have denied the allegations, and have attempted to settle their differences with Rosengart after the conservatorship ended last November. However, the star’s lawyer is not backing down. 

TMZ reported that about a month ago, Rosengart “had a change of heart” and offered to end the legal battle for $7 million. Tri-Star and Jamie’s lawyers questioned Rosengart about how he reached that price, but sources told TMZ that he didn’t give any specifics, leading to an impasse.

This week, Britney’s lawyer contacted Tri Star again to resurge a possible settlement—at this time, “both sides are still open to settling” according to TMZ. Although they both want to settle, this does not mean both sides have the same idea of settlement. 

Sources with direct knowledge of Tri-Star and Jamie told TMZ that Rosengart is “scrambling” to settle the case, while other sources with direct knowledge of Britney’s camp say that he is not scrambling and that they are going through general settlement talks—a standard in any legal dispute.

The amount of money Britney is willing to accept to end the legal battle is unknown at this time.
