Britney Spears' dad files to end conservatorship: Is there more than meets the eye?

'(His filing) was inappropriately sent to the media before it was served on counsel,' Britney's lawyer Mathew Rosengart stated

In an apparent victory for our favorite pop star Britney Spears, her father Jamie Spears has officially filed a petition to end her conservatorship — after having complete control over the singer's personal and professional life for 13 years. The petition comes weeks after he declared that he would step down from the position of Britney's conservator amid mounting pressures. In his petition filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Jamie Spears' attorney stated, "As Mr Spears has said again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter. If Ms Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr Spears believes that she should get that chance." Britney fans are hoping that the petition will be approved by overseeing judge Brenda Penny.

Addressing the court in back June, Britney called the conservatorship 'abusive' and said, "They’ve done a good job at exploiting my life. So I feel like it should be an open court hearing and they should listen to what I have to say. A lot has happened since two years ago, the last time I was in court. I don’t think I was heard on any level when I came to court last time. After I’ve told the whole world I’m okay, it’s a lie. I’m not happy and I can’t sleep. I’m depressed. I cry every day. It’s my wish and dream for all of this to end. I want my life back. I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized. I want to end the conservatorship without having to be evaluated. I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive."

In the latest petition, Jamie Spears further added, "The conservatorship has helped Ms Spears get through a major life crisis, rehabilitate and advance her career, and put her finances and her affairs in order. But recently, things have changed."

"Ms Spears is now outspoken in her frustration with the level of control imposed by a conservatorship and has pleaded with this Court to 'let her have her life back," the document mentions, adding that Britney needs continued psychological assessment. 

Jamie Spears is believed to have filed the petition after Britney's new attorney Mathew Rosengart filed an earlier petition to remove him as her conservator and appoint a professional accountant in his place. Hinting that he might have misused the singer's fortune, Rosengart indicated that Jamie Spears might not be acting in his daughter's best interests. 

In a new statement on Tuesday, Mathew Rosengart mentioned, "It appears that Mr Spears believes he can try to avoid accountability and justice, including sitting for a sworn deposition and answering other discovery under oath, but as we assess his filing — which was inappropriately sent to the media before it was served on counsel — our investigation will continue." It is believed that Jamie Spears sent his court petition to NBC News before it was served in court. 

Presently, a hearing has been set for September 29, 2021, when we might see the end of Britney Spears' "toxic" conservatorship that shackled her for more than a decade.
