Dad tried to start his own cooking show, court documents show

  • Jamie Spears tried to start her own cooking show using Britney Spears’ music supervisor, court doctors say.
  • Britney Spears has accused her father of using the conservatorship to further his personal and business interests.
  • Britney Spears’ attorney filed the documents ahead of a hearing Wednesday in the ongoing legal battle over her conservatorship.

Britney Spears has said her father tried to host his own pilot cooking show called “Cookin’ Cruzin’ and Chaos with Jamie Spears,” according to court documents filed by the singer’s attorney.

In new court documents filed last Friday, Spears, through her attorney Mathew Rosengart, said her father Jamie Spears “exploited his role as a curator to convince Ms. Spears’ touring staff to help her transform his catering business into a career in Hollywood”.

Rosengart filed the new documents ahead of a hearing on Wednesday as part of the singer’s ongoing legal battle over her conservatorship. The pop star and her legal team alleged in the papers that her father “got rich while acting as a conservative – at the expense of Britney Spears’ estate.”

The documents accused Spears of taking more than $6 million from her daughter’s earnings and using her role as curator “to further her own personal and business interests.”

The court documents went on to say that Jamie Spears approached Marc Delcore, Britney Spears’ longtime music supervisor, to use Delcore’s digital and recording knowledge to create a reel for the show.

“Mr. Spears never offered to pay for Mr. Delcore’s time or services, which would have cost Mr. Spears a significant amount of money had he not had access (and had freely availed of this access) to highly qualified professionals (like Mr. Delcore) who were employed by the Conservatorship,” the court documents state.

Between 2008 and 2021, Spears was under a legal arrangement that granted control of her personal life and estate to a group of individuals, including her father, Jamie Spears.

On June 23, 2021, the pop star addressed a judge directly in open court for the first time, detailing the alleged abuse she suffered under the 13-year-old’s guardianship.

On September 7, Jamie Spears filed a motion to end Britney Spears’ conservatorship, which the pop star’s legal team called a “massive” legal victory. The conservatorship officially ended on November 12.

The current court battle is over conservatorship payments, including Jamie Spears asking the court for her daughter to cover her legal fees before conservatorship ends.
