Any time these matters are resolved, Mr. Spears will be in a position to step aside.”
The document’s introduction concludes, “Regardless of his formal title, Mr. Spears will constantly be Ms. Spears' father, he plans to will constantly love her unconditionally, and he plans to will usually look out for her best interests."
Rosengart was supposedly unmoved by Jamie’s decision. “We are pleased nevertheless not necessarily surprised that Mr. Spears and his lawyer finally recognize that he must be removed. We are disappointed, nevertheless, by their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms. Spears and others,” he mentioned in a statement to Variety
. “We look forward to continuing our vigorous investigation into the conduct of Mr. Spears, and others, within the past 13 years, if he reaped millions of dollars from his daughter’s estate, and I look forward to taking Mr. Spears’s sworn deposition in the near future.”
