Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears files to end conservatorship
In a happy turn of events, Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears has filed in Court to end the conservatorship
In quick turns and twists relating to singer actor Britney Spears’ conservatorship that for over a decade has been under her father Jamie Spears, may finally see an end to it. Since the Free Britney campaign and her speech in the court, the latest twist comes with her father Jamie Spears filling for ending the conservatorship. According to ET, Jamie Spears has filed court documents to end the conservatorship.
Britney for the longest time has been expressing her wish to remove the conservatorship. And in that process she has taken steps to reclaim her independence, such as hiring her own counsel, driving on her own and talking to her fans opening on social media.
According to the documents with ET, “Ms. Spears has expressed her dissatisfaction with the level of control imposed by a conservatorship, pleading with this Court to ‘let her have her life back”. She has been in two Court procedures in recent months and has time and again expressed her views about the conservatorship, and urged the Court to discontinue the conservatorship immediately.
On the other hand, Jamie is requesting that the court to reconsider the conservatorship of Britney’s personal and estate determining that it is no longer necessary. Therefore, asking for the terminating of conservatorship.
The docs added, “As Mr. Spears has stated time and time again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter. If Ms. Spears wants to end the conservatorship and believes she is capable of managing her own life, Mr. Spears believes she should be given the opportunity.”
Jamie stated he’d be willing to step down as conservator of her estate “when the time is appropriate” nearly a month ago. Jamie’s decision last month, according to Britney’s new attorney, Mathew Rosengart, was a “huge victory for Britney Spears and another step toward justice.”
When it comes to Britney’s conservatorship, the lawyer hasn’t minced words, claiming last week that Jamie was seeking to extort millions in exchange for stepping down as conservator of her estate.
Jamie was allegedly seeking $2 million in payments, according to documents obtained by ET on Aug. 31. $1.3 million in legal fees, $500,000 to Britney’s old management business, and further payments to Jamie were all included in the settlement. “There is no comment at this time,” a spokeswoman for Jamie said in response to the court filing.
