Britney Spears Pays Millions in Legal Fees, Lawyer Agrees to Pro Bono Services Amid Ongoing Case
Britney Spears has reportedly paid her lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, a staggering sum of USD 4.2 million in legal fees for less than two years’ worth of work.
Sources familiar with the matter revealed that members of Britney’s team were growing increasingly agitated with the mounting fees, prompting Rosengart to agree to provide free legal services in the future.
This multimillion-dollar payment covers November 2021 to March 2023, with most of Rosengart’s legal work being conducted after the termination of Britney’s conservatorship.
However, the USD 4.2 million figure represents only a portion of what Britney has paid Rosengart’s firm, as the total fees are said to approach a staggering USD 6 million.
Britney’s team raised concerns about Rosengart’s fees, leading the lawyer to offer pro bono services for the remaining case duration against her father, Jamie Spears.
Rosengart’s legal assistance has been extensive, encompassing various aspects of Britney’s life, including terminating the conservatorship, ongoing litigation against Jamie, her music career, book deals, and other related matters.
Notably, Rosengart has been critical of the exorbitant fees charged by numerous attorneys involved in the 13-year conservatorship case, with documents he filed revealing that these lawyers collectively received over USD 30 million.
Despite her immense success as a Grammy-winning artist and ventures like “The X Factor” judging stint and a lucrative Las Vegas concert residency, Britney’s net worth has reportedly suffered a significant decline since the end of her conservatorship.
While she was believed to be worth USD 60 million then, recent sources indicate a substantial decrease.
Notably, Mathew Rosengart, having received substantial compensation from Britney Spears, has now decided to provide his legal services pro bono.
The renowned former federal prosecutor began offering his services free of charge after receiving over USD 4 million from the pop star in July 2021.
This development comes as Britney continues her legal battle against her estranged father, Jamie Spears, and former business manager, Lou Taylor, regarding legal fees and accounting matters.
In an exclusive statement to Page Six, Rosengart expressed pride in their nearly two years of work for Britney and vowed to continue fiercely fighting on her behalf.
While Britney has regained her freedom, the legal proceedings surrounding her case remain ongoing, highlighting the ongoing support she requires in navigating these complex matters.
