On August 30, 2021, Britney Spears's attorney filed a supplemental petition to the July 27 petition for the removal of Jamie Spears from his role as conservator of the estate of his daughter. This filing was a direct response to Jamie's first response to the July petition for his suspension and removal.


[In chronological order: Britney's July 27 petition, Jamie's August 12 first response, Britney's August 30 supplemental petition]


"MR. SPEARS’S 'FIRST RESPONSE' ITSELF FURTHER DEMONSTRATES WHY HIS IMMEDIATE SUSPENSION AND SUBSEQUENT REMOVAL ARE NECESSARY AND PROPER UNDER PROBATE CODE SECTION 2650(j)" (emphasis in original)


The August 30 petition picked apart Jamie's August 12 response, generously quoting from Jamie's own words to the court. Numerous publications and caselaw examples supporting the argument to remove Jamie as conservator were cited.


Attorney Mathew Rosengart continued focusing on what is "in the best interests of Britney Spears", as he had since his first court appearance in this case. Rosengart also repeated that Jamie stepping down from his role as conservator would not be an admission of wrongdoing, and again advised that issues of misconduct were not addressed in this petition.


Rosengart laid out the many pending payments to be resolved in the 2020 accounting of Britney's estate, totaling approximately $2 million. These included payments to Jamie for "working with his lawyer to address 'public, media, and social media attention,' such as reading 'major television and news articles, social media posts, global media inquiries, and documentary films;' and 'continu[ing] to do my best to keep current regarding the music, advertising and entertainment business . . . '


The document closed with " . . . Mr. Spears should simply agree to resign immediately. Under the circumstances, that would be the legally correct, decent, and graceful thing to do."
