Who is Britney Spears' new conservator? Dad Jamie steps down to avoid 'battle with daughter'
Jamie Spears 'intends to work with the Court and his daughter's new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator'
Britney Spears, who was living under her father, Jamie Spears' conservatorship for over 13 years, appeared in court and gave testimony regarding the same for the first time on June 23. Britney has wanted to remove her father as her conservator since 2016. The singer's conservatorship battle had given rise to 'FreeBritney' movements on social media and otherwise once again. Fans are now rejoicing to learn that the pop star's dad, Jamie Spears has stepped down as the conservator of her estate.
According to court documents filed by Jamie's lawyer, "There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr Spears as the Conservator of the Estate. Nevertheless, even as Mr Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests." The statement further added, "So, even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter's new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator."
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."
