“Jamie only wanted to be Britney’s father when he turned 26 and was a billionaire,” Phillip, who was Britney’s assistant and lived with her for a time, told the publication.
Phillip said that Jamie “seemed unconcerned” about Britney’s well-being when she started having problems, and that Jamie had “every opportunity to stop what was happening to her,” including her alleged addiction to prescription drugs.
“I think he was 100 percent an enabler,” Phillip said of Jamie.

“I’m here to press charges. I’m angry and I’m going there. You’re allowing my dad to ruin my life,” Britney told Judge Brenda Penny.
Although the contested guardianship was in place since 2008, Phillip alleges that Britney’s finances were being controlled prior to that.
At one point, he did not have the access code for his own home, a phone or a credit card, with only the number of a black Amex card assigned to his manager’s business for money, Philip claims.
