Jamie's Lawyer Denies "Hostile Takeover"

2/5/2008 9:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie SpearsAttorney Jeryll Cohen, who reps Jamie, submitted a declaration to the conservatorship commissioner, claiming Brit's divorce lawyers got it all wrong when they assumed Jamie was a control freak.

In the declaration, Cohen says Ron Rale, a high-powered lawyer at Trope and Trope, "accused Mr. Spears of attempting 'nothing more than a hostile takeover of our client for improper purposes.'"

Cohen says Jamie was looking "for the least ugly way to save this young woman's life, bring her back to her babies, and keep her safe from predators."

Just remember one thing, these two guys did not come into Britney's life until her and K-Fed started their battle. Come on everyone, please see the big picture! k-Fed is a silent snake in the grass.

Just my opinion    

Keep anything/body Anna Nicole away from Britney...Ron Rale can suck a big one...he takes advantage of the incoherent.

Please don't use the word "babies" when referring to someones children. It sounds like white trash or 'hood talk. At least pretend you are writing to people with an education higher than the 4th grade.

Ron Rale is good friends with Howard K. Stern, and defended him after Anna Nicole died. Ron Rale and the law firm of Trope and Trope should just shut up and let this family heal and bond together, so Britney can get better. This law firm has not had one single success since defending Britney anyway---they have failed every time in court. I hope when she is better, she fires them.

I knew Ron Rale would be involved in this mess & now the snake has slithered out of the grass. He keeps good company with buddies like Howard K. Stern & Sam. Of course he's going to try to put the parents out of the picture so he & Sam can take over Britney's money & then she'll end up dead just the way Ron & Howard plotted to get rid of Anna Nicole & her son.

Ron Rale don't you thing it's a little early to be trying this same plot again. This is the same part you played in the Anna Nicole Smith story & people are not stupid.

I HOPE THE JUDGE THROWS THE BOOK!

Funny how amember of Britneys "Attorney Team" also, was involved with another high profile death/drug case. Sounds like there may be something to Jamie and Lynn's fears.

britanys father may not be the father of the year type but he's better then what she had, her mothers no better, it dont relly matter who in her family comes to help her as long as she dont end up like another anna nicole smith, if her mother had stepped in to help her daughter in time, anna nicole might still be with us and her infant duaghter, who knows, britanys father might just be able to give britany the help that she needs

Ron Rale / Trope and Trope + Howard K. Stern = Dead Anna Nicole + dead son Daniel

Ron Rale / Trope and Trope + Osama Bin Lutfi = almost Dead Britney + no children

Please Mr. Spears, fire those lwayers before it is too late. Good job getting rid of Osama!

Sams a loser    

Oh Ron Rale, Should have known. Bet he was giving Sam advice on how to crush up her pills and keep her under control. Wonder if he helped Lufti set up off shore accounts since her estate has dwindled from an estimated 100 million last year to around 40 million.
