Jamie Spears Asks Judge To Increase Conservatorship PayOctober 17, 2013
Jamie Spears manages Britney’s personal affairs through a conservatorship since 2008, and time is money. He filed a motion this week asking the courts to up the amount he receives from Britney’s estate to support the increase he pays in office rent.
According to court docs obtained by Radar Online, Jamie says:
“I continue to perform services to protect and care for Britney’s person and to administer her estate in good faith and in her best interests.”
“I continue to have significant oversight duties relating to her visitation with her children.”
Jamie receives $16,000 a month for his duties as conservator, in addition to $1200 for office space. He’s asking for $800 more per month to cover new costs.
“As my rent has steadily escalated over the last three years, I request that I be reimbursed an additional $800.00 per month for my office expense for the time period of November 1, 2012, through August 31, 2013,” which adds up to $7,200. He also asks “that I be authorized to spend the sum of $2,000 monthly, rather than the previously ordered $1,200 monthly, for my office space in a secure location that is dedicated to Britney’s activities.”
In the motion, Jamie says his office is a place of business for Britney’s career, including “negotiations with respect to Britney’s upcoming concert series at Planet Hollywood … to maximize the contractual benefits she would receive with a minimum of financial risk to her and a safe, structured, and pleasant environment.”
The conservatorship Britney is under was key in the negotiations with Caesars Entertainment. Basically, no conservatorship = no deal. He’ll receive nearly $10,000 more per year if the judge agrees.
