Britney Spears' Lawyer Claims Former Business Manager Made Over $18 Million From Conservatorship

Britney Spears

Tri Star and its founder, Lou Taylor, served as business managers for Britney from 2008 through 2020, hired under Jamie Spears, her father and conservator for most of the past 13 years.

Tri Star has said that it had no involvement in the conservatorship. Matthew Rosengart claims the company and its employees, Lou Taylor and Robin Greenhill, were involved in facilitating the conservatorship.

“Tri Star, Lou Taylor, and Robin Greenhill have all denied that Tri Star was involved in the creation of the Conservatorship,” he writes in the paperwork, via Variety.

“These denials by Tri Star and its representatives are false,” he continues, claiming that they generated “$18-plus million from the conservatorship it helped create.”

“This is materially misleading. As all the evidence makes abundantly clear, the conservatorship was set up on the recommendation of legal counsel, not Tri Star, and approved by the Court for more than 12 years. In fact, Tri Star was not even the business manager for the conservatorship when it was established. Cherry-picked excerpts from emails cannot change the facts, which is why this nonsense will all end once and for all when records are unsealed,” said Tri Star’s lawyer Scott Edelman in a response.

Matthew has pledged to fully investigate Tri Star, and has brought on P.I. firm Kroll to conduct an investigation of the company and her father’s conduct.

The new filing includes emails allegedly between Lou Taylor, Jamie and his former lawyer, Geraldine Wyle. The emails indicate that Jamie was in communication with Lou prior to the conservatorship being put in place in February 2008.

[Andrew Wallet] and Tri Star will serve as co’s [with] you,” Lou Taylor allegedly wrote in an email back in January 2008.

Geraldine Wyle allegedly wrote an email to Lou Taylor: “We have run into a problem with [the] judge selection… the only judge who will be able to hear our case on Friday is the one drug [sic] who will not give Jamie the power to administer psychotropic drugs” to Britney Spears.

The emails suggest Lou Taylor wanted to be a co-conservator.

“I am the right person for this…I have fought for Jamie for 3 years, prayed and fasted with him every week and life has changed drastically because of this determination,” she allegedly wrote.

“Despite its integral role at the time the conservatorship was established, despite reaping at least $18 million from Britney Spears while she was a conservatee, and despite building its brand on Ms. Spears’s name and incredible talent and hard work… when Tri Star’s counsel was informally asked by the undersigned counsel in late 2021 for basic of information concerning the conservatorship… Tri Star, like Mr. Spears, chose to stonewall and obfuscate,” Britney‘s lawyer writes in the new paperwork.

The next hearing is set for July 13 at the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse.

At the same time, her father has just denied more allegations involving the conservatorship.
