Many fans have also highlighted on social media how a week before Britney and Sam tied the knot, Lynne liked an Instagram post from the singer’s first ex-husband, Jason Alexander, who was married to the pop star for 55 days in 2014, and who was arrested for trespassing after allegedly crashing the star’s wedding. He had shared an article about how Lance Bass claims there’s “still a wall” around Britney despite the termination of her conservatorship.
In early November, a week before the conservatorship ended, Lynne submitted a petition requesting that Britney’s estate pay her attorneys’ fees and other costs, totaling more than $660,000, that she accrued during the court battle. The papers state that Lynne had discussed joining the conservatorship, which was largely controlled by the singer’s dad until September, as an interested party extensively with the pop star, who allegedly “enthusiastically agreed.”
In April, Britney’s lawyer filed a response that said, per Billboard, “While [Lynne] had the right to hire and pay for her own counsel, from her own funds, this is, in effect, an issue between Lynne Spears and her lawyers, and there is no legal basis for placing Britney Spears in the middle of it.”
After Lynne filed her petition, Britney took to Instagram to accuse her mom of “ruining” her life, alleging that she was the one who gave her estranged father “the idea” of establishing the conservatorship in the first place. Britney’s mother, who divorced Jamie in 2002, did not respond to her daughter’s post and her rep had no immediate comment when reached by E! News.
