America’s popular singer, songwriter Britney Spears has asked the court to have her father replaced as the sole conservator of her estate. She also asked “not to return” her father Jamie Spears that gave him control over many aspects of her life and career.
“Britney is strongly opposed to Jamie’s return as a conservator of her person,” according to a court document filed to the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles.
Before her petition, the court details said that the singer was in favor of the father’s role during her ‘mentally unstable’ period until she regains her position as a world-class entertainer.
However, she wants her manager Jodi Montgomery, who stepped in for her father during his absence, to become his permanent replacement, once the conservatorship is up for extension again after August 22, according to BBC.
It is worth to be mentioned that Jamie Spears has been his daughter’s legal conservator for 12 years due to concerns around her mental health. He temporarily stepped aside from the role overseeing her personal affairs in 2019, citing his “own health problems.”
However, some of Spears’ fans believe she was forced into the arrangement, and have been running a #FreeBritney campaign.
