Jamie Spears, Britney Spears

Britney Spears' father has gotten technical.

Following up on his petition to collect "replacement compensation" for the month of February for being the coconservator of his daughter's estate, Jamie Spears stated in a declaration filed June 6 that, starting Feb. 1, when he was first given control over Britney's affairs following her second hospitalization this year, he was with her "on a near-twenty-four-hour basis to ensure her safety and well-being."

A court commissioner did not allocate $2,500 a week for the elder Spears—plus funds to lease a car—until March 3.

"After Britney was released from the hospital, I brought Britney home and secured her living and care situation," Spears said.

"Throughout the time period, I ran errands, including buying groceries and cooking supper on a daily basis. I talked frequently with Britney about her health status...I arranged for Britney’s transport and security to go shopping and so that she could teach a dance class."

The Spears family's current arrangement is in effect until at least July 31, when the conservatorship issue is due to be revisited in court.

Jamie Spears also included time spent with the kids—grandsons Jayden James and Sean Preston and ex-son-in-law Kevin Federline—as well as meetings with Britney's lawyers and doctors, in his list of billable accomplishments over the month of February.

“I visited with Britney’s children and their father, Mr. Federline,” he stated. “I met and consulted attorneys. I also continued to consult with and meet Britney’s doctors and care providers.”

In his original petition to collect what more or less amounts to back pay, Spears' attorney wrote that his client, who had been working as a caterer, had "been forced to forego [sic] other employment in order to devote his full time and attention to Britney and her affairs" and had "lost his regular source of income from which to pay his living expenses."
