The mother’s attorney, Gladstone N. Jones, III, filed papers on Monday objecting to legal fees spent by Jamie, as she claimed they are “utterly excessive” and “served no benefit to” the 39-year-old singer.

Lynne specifically took issue with the nearly $900,000 her ex spent with the law firm Holland & Knight, which was racked up as Britney attempted to remove him as co-conservator of her estate. 

According to Yahoo, Lynne’s objection calls for “fees and expenses charged for certain services provided by H&K” to be “examined” by the judge in private.

If the services “are determined to be improper or excessive,” Lynne has asked for them to be stricken from the bill or reimbursed to Britney’s estate if they had already been paid.

Lynne’s attorney argued that the charges are “procedurally improper” and claimed some H&K staffers “were not approved by this Court to work on the matter at hand.”

Additionally, she claims the charges were “substantially improper” because some weren’t for legal work and “instead largely constituted a ‘national media tour’ … to promote [Thoreen] and/or combat media coverage that cast [Jamie] in a negative light.”

The documents state: “There was no value whatsoever” to Britney “having her Conservator’s attorney … appear on a national media tour.”

Lynne said it “provided no benefit” to the singer, who pays all the bills for her conservatorship.

Jamie, 68, and Lynne, 65, were married from 1976 until 2002.

In addition to Britney, they share 30-year-old daughter Jamie Lynn and 44-year-old son Bryan.

Back in March, Britney asked a judge to permanently end her father Jamie’s control over her $60m fortune and personal life.

The singer’s attorney filed for Jodi Montgomery to officially replace her father as the permanent conservator over Britney’s personal matters.

In addition requesting Jodi be made the permanent conservator, Britney has asked her father to resign from his role overseeing her personal life.

The legal documents also state the Toxic singer reserves the right to eventually request an end to the conservatorship completely.

Under the terms of the long-running conservatorship, Britney isn’t allowed to drive or go out by herself, or make any significant personal or financial decisions.

The new documents reveal the day-to-day duties Jodi will have while conservator, including the power to “restrict and limit” visitors – aside from Ingham – to the singer, the ability to retain “caretakers and security guards” for her and powers to prosecute civil harassment restraining orders on her behalf.

Jodi will also be able to speak with medical professionals about Britney and have access to her medical records.

While sources have said Britney’s life “would drastically change for the better” if Jamie is removed as her conservator, his lawyer Vivian Thoreen previously claimed the conservatorship “saved” the singer’s life.

“I understand that every story needs a villain,” the attorney said. “But people have it so wrong here.

“This is a story about a fiercely loving, dedicated and loyal father who rescued his daughter from a life threatening situation.

“People were harming her and they were exploiting her. Jamie saved Britney’s life,” she told Good Morning America‘s Amy Robach.

The singer hopes to marry her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, have more children and return to singing.
