Britney Spears' lawyer requests her father resign as conservator without payout
By Chloe Melas, CNN
(CNN) -- Britney Spears' lawyer wants Jamie Spears to resign as the conservator of his daughter's estate, without the multimillion dollar payout that he is requesting.
In a new court filing obtained by CNN on Tuesday, Mathew Rosengart states that although Spears' father said in a filing last month that he would eventually resign, Rosengart wants him to step down "today, before he is suspended."
CNN has reached out to Jamie Spears' legal team for comment.
He is requesting approximately $2 million dollars to cover legal and management fees as well as payment for "continu[ing] to do my best to keep current regarding the music, advertising and entertainment business," as stated in a court filing from Aug. 12.
The singer's father has been the conservator of her estate for 13 years. But in two separate court hearings this summer, Britney Spears described the arrangement as abusive and said that she wanted her conservatorship to end.
Jamie Spears maintains he's consistently acted in his daughter's best interest as conservator.
The next hearing is scheduled for September 29.
