Britney Spears takes up painting after feeling ‘overwhelmed’ amid conservatorship battle


Britney Spears has told fans that she has taken up painting after feeling ‘overwhelmed’ at all the change going on in her life, amid her controversial conservatorship battle with father Jamie Spears. 

On Tuesday, it was revealed that Spears called her father Jamie ‘threatening and scary’ and has filed to remove him as the conservator of her estate, requesting that CPA Jason Rubin take over. 

Meanwhile, a source had claimed to The Sun that Spears wants the new conservator to ‘investigate’ Jamie’s finances as ‘money is missing’ from her $60M fortune.

Speaking to her fans via Instagram on the same day, the 39-year-old pop singer shared a video of her freestyle painting on a large piece of what paper at her home, hinting that it was helping her through the stressful situation.

‘As you guys know there’s a lot of change going on in my life at the moment,’ Spears told her 32.6M followers, adding: ‘And today I was feeling overwhelmed so I went to Michael’s and got white paper and paint.’   

Tellingly, Spears said, ‘This is an expression of how I’m feeling at the moment … rebellious… colorful…bright…bold …spontaneous…magical…so obviously showing my true colors.’ 

The ‘rebellious’ post comes after the pop star’s lawyer Matt Rosengart filed a motion to have Jamie removed and have Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Jason Rubin appointed in his place.

The new legal documents accuse Jamie of making his daughter’s life hell, and describe her current situation as ‘traumatizing, insane and depressing’ while also painting a portrait of a financially irresponsible conservator, according to TMZ.

Britney’s lawyer Matt Rosengart has requested Rubin, who practices out of Southern California, be appointed as conservator of her estate, citing his experience in handling financial and elder abuse cases in the past.

Certified Public Accountants offer financial statement audits and other attestation services to help inform investors about the financial health of organizations. 

They also provide individuals and families with valuable knowledge and advice on taxes and financial planning. 

If the request is granted, Rubin would be given financial authority to manage Britney’s estate and assets as well as the powers of attorney to make health care decisions.

In the past, Britney’s health care decisions have been the purview of Britney’s co-conservator Jodi Montgomery. 

Jodi was brought on to co-manage Britney’s affairs in September 2019, when Jamie became ill and has remained in charge of Britney’s personal affairs, working as her ‘care manager’, while Jamie controls her fortune.

The damning court docs depict Jamie as an incompetent financial manager, saying his family ‘struggled financially under his leadership and filed for bankruptcy in 1998.’

Damaging: Lynne Spears, Britney's mother and Jamie´sex-wife, said Jamie's 'microscopic control' over her health care and business decisions in a key period in 2018 and 2019 was especially damaging (pictured with Jamie in 2012)

This is despite the fact he earned millions off of his daughters tours and concert residencies, with the document estimate Jamie raked in $2.1million from his cut of her Vegas residency alone. 

Furthermore, Britney’s legal team said her relationship with Jamie is ‘venomous’ and ‘it impairs Ms. Spears’s mental health, her well-being, and her ability to pursue and continue with her extraordinary career.’

Rosengart states in the documents:  ‘Any father who genuinely loves his daughter and has her best interests at heart should willingly step aside in favor of the highly respected professional fiduciary nominated here.’

Lynne Spears, Britney´s mother and Jamie’s ex-wife, said in a declaration supporting Rosengart´s filing that his ‘microscopic control’ over her health care and business decisions in a key period in 2018 and 2019 was especially damaging.

She stated: ‘Such scrutiny is exhausting and terrifying, like living in custody’. 

At a July 14 hearing, Jamie’s attorney Vivian Thoreen said he would not be stepping down and he has only ever been motivated by his daughter´s best interests.

Thoreen said Britney had many inaccurate beliefs, among them that ‘her father is responsible for all the bad things that have happened to her.’

Judge Brenda Penny gave Britney permission to hire an attorney of her choice at that hearing, when for the second straight time the singer publicly assailed the conservatorship that has been in place since 2008, breaking into tears as she described the ‘cruelty’ it subjected her to.

‘My dad needs to be removed today,’ she said, adding that she would like to see him charged with abusing his position.
