Britney Spears and her father settle legal dispute

Britney Spears and Jamie Spears have settled an ongoing dispute over legal fees after the first filing in December 2021. More than two years after the conservatorship that had given the singer's father control of her life ended, the pair settled the dispute over the legal fees pertaining to the conservatorship battle. Both parties' attorneys confirmed with PEOPLE that the pair settled for an undisclosed sum in Los Angeles Superior Court last month.

As a result of this settlement, the two have avoided going to trial over the alleged financial misconduct during her conservatorship. The trial was set to start in May, reports The New York Times. The dispute followed the 13-year conservatorship that began in 2008. Jamie was removed as the conservator of her estate in September 2021, and the entire conservatorship was terminated two months later.

The following month, Jamie began a pursuit of court approval for more than $2 million in fees that he had paid to multiple law firms throughout the legal battle, as well as payment for his current lawyer’s legal bill, per The New York Times.
