A judge on Wednesday determined that Britney Spears’ father will remain on her conservatorship until at least February 2021, despite a request filed by Spears’ lawyer earlier in the week that he be removed.
According to Spears’ attorney, Samuel Ingham, the singer is “strongly opposed” to her father, Jamie, returning “as conservator of her person”, reports Variety.
Instead, Spears petitioned that her temporary conservator, Jodi Montgomery, take on the position permanently.
Also included in the court filing is Spears’ opposition to her father controlling her finances. “Britney … strongly prefers to have a qualified corporate fiduciary appointed to serve in this role,” it reads.
Jamie Spears has acted as Britney’s co-conservator since her very publicized breakdown in 2008. In 2019, he became sole conservator following attorney Andrew Wallet’s resignation.
As conservator, Jamie is paid roughly $130,000 a year from Britney’s estate. Add that to legal and other conservator fees, and the conservatorship costs Britney upwards of a million dollars a year.
i wish the news were that she’ll never record again. Her music is the worst piece of garbage ever next to Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Gag-a, etc.
Silly mall girls too rich for their C)(ts.
She is 38 years old. For her to be kept into conservatorship her mental health issues have to be serious. Courts do not do that lightly. One thing it does show is that even someone with serious mental health issues can become very successful.
i think it’s less about mental health issues, more about substance abuse or just flat out control by her family. if she’s med compliant, there is no reason to keep her under their thumb like this.
To ShiningSex, don’t even put her in the same category as Mariah and Gaga, both have tremendous voices and multiple talents. You can have Rihanna and Britney, for sure. Just because you were probably raised on Classic rock or metal doesn’t mean there’s not talent in other musical forms.
Well said. The nerve of ShiningSex lumping Mariah and Lady Gaga in with Britney and Rihanna. I’m no Lady Gaga fan, but I won’t deny that she can sing. Mariah irks me with all that diva sh*t, but she can sing. Not as well as she could 20 years ago, but she could still sing rings around Britney and Rihanna.
She’s almost 40 y.o. and still under a conservatorship? Wow.
I agree that Britney is a crap singer but all of the others you mentioned are not. They are all brilliant vocalists. I am 34 yrs old but every time I am on this site I feel like I am reading comments of dinosaurs from 100 years ago. No offense but it’s all men over the age of 60 on this site!!
I’m surprised that the idea of having a corporate fiduciary in charge wouldn’t fly with the court. It seems like they may have some evidence that she is easily manipulated, or the father is showing proof that he has done a good job.
Such an odd story, especially since there is some story out there that her kids have restraining stories against Spears father.
