Britney Spears' father accused of trying to get $2 million before stepping down as conservator

SpearsBritney Spears' attorney has urged the pop star's father, Jamie Spears, to immediately step down as her conservator "after accusing him of trying to get about $2 million as a condition of his resignation." 

Spears' attorney, Mathew Rosengart, has demanded that Jamie Spears step down without payment. Rosengart cited to Jamie Spears' August 12 response to a petition to remove him from her conservatorship in which Jamie Spears stated that he would be "willing to step down when the time is right, but the transition needs to be orderly and include a resolution of matters." 

According to Rosengart, "Mr. Spears and his counsel are now on notice: the status quo is no longer tolerable, and Britney Spears will not be extorted. . .Mr. Spears's blatant attempt to barter suspension and removal in exchange for approximately $2 million in payments on top of the millions already reaped from Ms. Spears's estate by Mr. Spears and his associate, is a non-starter."
