Britney Spears’ father Jamie files petition to end conservatorship

Britney Spears‘ father has filed a petition to his controversial 13-year control over her estate. 

Jamie Spears filed the documents at Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday.

The paperwork, seen by NBC News, states that his daughter ‘is entitled to have this Court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required.’ 

The filing said that his 39-year-old daughter’s situation has changed ‘to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist.’

The pop singer, who has been performing since she was a child, has been battling for the last two years to free herself from a conservatorship imposed in 2008, when she had a mental breakdown.

Criticism of the arrangement has grown, with the singer and her supporters arguing that it may have been initially useful, but had long outgrown its purpose.

Jamie Spears was being paid $16,000 a month to manage his daughter’s affairs, while she was touring and raking in millions.

On August 12, amid mounting pressure from his daughter, his ex-wife Lynne and Britney’s fans, Jamie Spears agreed to step down – but only when everything was in place. He did not indicate how long that would be. 

On Tuesday, the Louisiana-born father of three said he accepted the moment was now, and defended his work over the past 13 years.

‘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,’ the filing said, according to NBC. 

‘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.”

On June 23 the singer – worth an estimated $60 million, according to court documents – spoke before Judge Brenda Penny to explain, in excruciating detail, how the arrangement had affected her and why she wanted it to end.  

On July 26 the singer’s new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart – appointed on July 14, after a lengthy battle to chose her own legal advocate – appealed to the court to have Jamie Spears removed from the conservatorship.

It gives control over to an appointed conservator for the best interest of the recipient but in most cases, the recipient is not healthy enough to make their own money, unlike Britney who makes millions. Under the rules of the probate conservatorship, Jamie now has equal control over her estate to a third party and an attorney, Andrew Wallet. 

Wallet derives  a salary of $426,000 a year from Britney’s estate.
