Britney Spears’ lawyer to file petition requesting to make singer’s temporary conservator permanent

Published

Washington [US], March 18 (ANI): American singer-songwriter Britney Spears’s attorney is planning to file a petition in the court to make her temporary conservator and care manager Jodi Montgomery, a permanent conservator after the singer’s father Jamie stepped down from his role due to health issues.
According to Fox News, the singer’s father Jamie stepped down from his role as Spear’s personal conservator in 2019 due to health issues and her care manager, Montgomery, temporarily replaced him.
Now the Grammy-winning star along with her attorney is planning to file a petition requesting Montgomery to appoint as the singer’s permanent conservator. The request will be presented in court on April 27 this year.
While Jamie has stepped down as a conservator, he still oversees Spear’s estate with Bessemer Trust at present.
Fox News reported that Wednesday’s accounting hearing was set to see the superstar’s co-conservators of her estate, Jamie and new party Bessemer Trust to detail Spears’ finances to the court.
However, the consultation was preceded to the April date of hearing as the parties work to decide a precise rundown of resources and holdings and where the finances were spent.
David Glass, a professional family law attorney and PhD in Clinical Psychology gave his opinions and future aspects to Fox News and weighed in on Wednesday’s proceedings surrounding the petition, which he said, could be the first real step to dissolving the collective conservatorship altogether.
“Right now, the conservators of the estate and the financial matters are Jamie and this Bessemer Trust. And so now he’s asking for this Jodi Montgomery to become the permanent conservator of the person,” Glass told the outlet minutes after the hearing concluded.
Glass called the potential move a big step up for Montgomery, who had stepped into the primary role of conservator in 2019 on a temporary basis.
He described the role of a care manager and said that it is a person who just makes personal decisions for medical treatment and whether the star needs bodyguards. All sorts of the stated decisions except money issues for a concerned person are taken by a care manager.
Glass added that the transition to elevate Montgomery gives off an impression of being the most reasonable action considering the fact that she is as of now Spears’ care manager, a position that is one step below the conservator.
“The care person collects information on the conservative’s health and their medical records and what their doctors say and then summarizes that information and gives it to the conservatory. So in that sense, it’s a step up for Ms Montgomery,” Glass added.
On the contrary, the attorney also alerted that Spear’s father Jamie will also have an opportunity to object to the petition to appoint Montgomery as the primary conservator as well.
“It’s rare that a probate court will rule just based on the papers. They almost always go to some sort of evidentiary objection, evidentiary hearing,” he continued.
The songstress’ father Jamie has been the target of the #FreeBritney movement since the consideration was set on the artist following the release of her documentary ‘Framing Britney Spears’.
As per Fox News, at present, the conservatorship gives Jamie control on the star’s domain. However, Spears recently began finding lawful steps to recover agency over her life. (ANI)

SAAHIL BHARGAVA’S KOHIMA NOMINATED AT LA SHORTS FILM FEST

Published

on

CHENNAI: Los Angeles based Mumbai boy Saahil Bhargava’s music video Kohima has been nominated at the prestigious LA Shorts International Film Festival in two key categories- animation and music video. An elated Saahil Bhargava talks about his song Kohima.

What is the thought behind Kohima? Kohima is about a soldier’s experience at war. It is inspired by the Battle of Kohima, a WW2 conflict that took place in Northeastern Indian in 1944. Rather than focus on the entire war, it focuses on one individual soldier’s emotions. His panic, his desperation and sheer desire to survive and go home. I chose this concept because I wanted to explore the experience of an individual soldier, and I found that the Battle of Kohima was this horrific brutal battle that is not talked about enough even though it is a crucial battle both in Indian history and WW2 history.

When did you start your journey as a musician ? I started singing as a little kid, and eventually started to play classical/jazz piano, rock/metal guitar, bass guitar and the alto sax. I kept studying music and eventually found myself studying musical theater after college. That is what made it all click for me, as my music being stories allows me to combine all my skills as a singer, songwriter, composer, writer and actor.

You have directed and sung Kohima. How did you manage both roles ? I worked on the music first. Starting with lyrics and then eventually doing the music. The trickiest part in the music process was getting the vocals right, as I really had to get into the head of the character, in this case the soldier, and convey his emotions through that lens. Once the song was recorded, I worked with Keshav Dhar (of Skyharbor) on the mixing/mastering elements. After the entire song was completed, I then was able to work with Harmeet Rahal with support from Big Bang Music. Harmeet and I worked together on getting the right visual style for the song, with him driving the design and visuals, while I focused more on the character/story elements. Given my background working in Animation with Rainshine Entertainment, it’s not my first time doing an animation project, but Kohima was special because it was a music video with a very clear focus. We wanted to get the main character’s emotions across, and as a result the video does highlight his face and the dread he is feeling.
