Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears petitions to end her 13-year conservatorship



Britney Spears' father, James "Jamie" Spears, has filed a petition to end his daughter's conservatorship, which he has controlled for the last 13 years.


According to court documents, Jamie, 69, stated in his filing on Tuesday September 7, that Britney may no longer need a conservatorship. A move that Britney's team has branded a "massive legal victory" for the singer.


Britney "is entitled to have this Court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required," the filing states.


"Recent events related to this conservatorship have called into question whether circumstances have changed to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist," the filing continues.


Jamie's petition goes on to reference what Britney had said during several explosive court hearings over the summer: "Ms. Spears has told this Court that she wants control of her life back without the safety rails of a conservatorship."

"She wants to be able to make decisions regarding her own medical care, deciding when, where and how often to get therapy. She wants to control the money she has made from her career and spend it without supervision or oversight. She wants to be able to get married and have a baby, if she so chooses," the petition continues.


"In short, she wants to live her life as she chooses without the constraints of a conservator or court proceeding," states the petition.


The petition, did, however, defend the initial establishment of a conservatorship.


"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," the petition says of the 13-year-old decision.


According to the petition, Jamie now believes his daughter is "entitled to have this court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required."Latest Post
