Britney Spears, who has been under the legal conservatorship of her father – Jamie Spears – since 2008, has recently filed a petition to replace her father with Jason Rubin, formerly a manager at PwC.

After suffering several mental breakdowns in public in 2007 and 2008, pop icon Britney Spears was put under the conservatorship of her father, Jamie Spears, which granted him the legal right to decide over his daughter’s estate, personal finances, health, and business deals.

Earlier this year, Britney officially asked the court to end her conservatorship, stating that the latter had become “abusive,” and in July, her new lawyer filed petitions to replace the star’s father with Jason Rubin as Britney’s conservator.Jason Rubin set to replace Britney Spear’s father as her conservatorRubin, a certified public accountant and licensed professional fiduciary, worked as a manager in the dispute, analysis, and investigations practice at PwC from 2001 to 2002, before moving on to global law firm Howrey and later to California-based Munger, Tolles, & Olson.

He is currently president of Certified Strategies, which he co-founded in 2010. The company specializes in conservatorship needs, trust administration, and forensic and investigative accounting, making Rubin a logical choice for Britney Spears' case. 

Sources close to Britney Spears have repeatedly stated that the conservatorship was meant to help the pop star. The court approved the legal guardianship as Britney was considered incapable of making her own decisions, but fans have been questioning her father’s control over her affairs and have supported the pop icon under a #FreeBritney movement since 2009.

According to Business Insider, Britney Spears’ most recent financial documents showed her assets totaled roughly $59 million at the end of 2018. The star spent $1.1 million on her legal and conservator fees that year, of which $128,000 was paid to her father. 

A court hearing regarding Jason’s possible hiring as conservator of Britney’s estate is set for December 13.
