Britney Spears will continue to be under conservatorship, putting Jodi Montgomery in danger even more.
Jodi Montgomery, the conservator of person of Britney Spears, demands a heightened security measure after receiving death threats.
New court documents revealed that Montgomery has been receiving death threats ever since Spears spoke to the court. The first appearance of the singer happened on June 23.
Apart from the security, Montgomery also asks Spears’ estate to cover the security costs.
“Since the June 23, 2021 status hearing, which was illegally broadcasted, streamed, and replayed to an incredibly wide audience, there has been a marked increase in the number and severity of threatening posts about Petitioner [Montgomery] on all social media platforms as well as text messages, phone calls, and emails directed to the Petitioner personally,” the document states, as quoted by Fox News.
It added that the messages contain threats of violence and death to Montgomery. Because of this, she wants to have 24/7 security to assure her safety and security. She also plans to make security improvements at her home.
Jamie Spears and a judge will need to approve the request before it takes effect.
Britney wants Montgomery to stay
In the same document, Montgomery claimed that the 39-year-old pop star personally asked her to stay. It means that she will remain as the co-conservator of her person.
Spears also allegedly asked her to assist her in finding a new attorney. For what it’s worth, Spears’ attorney since the conservatorship began, Samuel Ingham III, told the court he wants to resign.
Montgomery’s lawyer forwarded the text messages between the client and Spears to prove her statements.
This came after the lawyer, Lauriann Wright, revealed that Montgomery has no plans to resign as the singer’s Temporary Conservator of the Person.
“She remains committed to steadfastly supporting Ms. Spears in every way she can within the scope of her duties as a conservator of the person,” the statement said.
“It has been over 2½ years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus,” Rudolph said.
The Bessemer Trust, who acted as the co-conservator of Spears’ estate, left its post. It explained that the decision was due to the singer’s desire to end the conservatorship.
