According to Capt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, Britney Spears is being investigated for suspected violence resulting from an incident with an employee.
The sheriff’s office will forward its findings to the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office, which will consider misdemeanor charges. According to a sheriff’s office source, this is a small matter.
Spears’ attorney, Mathew Rosengart, told ABC News, “This is exaggerated dramatic tabloid material — nothing more than a ‘he said she said about a mobile phone, with no hitting and certainly no harm whatsoever.” “Anyone may file a complaint, but this should have been dealt with right away.”
Spears, 39, has recently concentrated her efforts on removing her father, Jamie Spears, from the conservatorship that has regulated her life since 2008. Jamie Spears submitted court filings last week saying that he is prepared to step down as conservator of his daughter’s estate, despite the fact that he feels it is “very questionable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. [Britney] Spears’ best interests.”
Jodi Montgomery, a professional fiduciary, is presently the conservator of the pop star’s personal life. Rosengart has also requested the appointment of a professional fiduciary to take over for Jamie Spears.
“Even though Mr. Spears is the unrelenting subject of unfair assaults,” Jamie Spears’ court petition noted, “he does not think that a public struggle with his daughter over his continued duty as her conservator would be in her best interests.” “Mr. Spears wants to engage with the Court and his daughter’s new counsel to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservatory, even though he must oppose this unwarranted Petition for his removal.”
Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor, filed court papers last month seeking to replace Jamie Spears, describing the present situation as a “Kafkaesque nightmare” that has “become increasingly poisonous and is just no longer tenable.”
