Britney Spears’ father to leave his guardianship

Jamie Spears has agreed to resign from his 13-year position as conservator of his daughter Britney’s estate, in what the pop star’s attorney on Thursday called a major victory.

“We are pleased that Mr. Spears and his attorney admitted in a file today that he should be deported,” the singer’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart, said in a statement.

Spears, who has controlled much of her daughter’s affairs since she suffered a mental health collapse in 2008, agreed to step aside in court papers filed Thursday.

The “Toxic” pop star has been seeking for months to remove his father from any voice in his life. A court hearing to discuss the matter had been scheduled for late September in Los Angeles.

Rosengart called Jamie Spears’ decision “a great victory for Britney Spears and another step toward justice.”

Thursday’s court document did not say when Jamie Spears would resign from his role in handling his daughter’s $ 60 million estate and said he felt there was no reason to immediately remove or suspend it.

But he added: “Even when Mr. Spears is the relentless target of unwarranted attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter for her continued service as her curator would be in the best interest of her.”

“Mr. Spears intends to work with the court and his daughter’s new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator,” the court record added.

Britney Spears, 39, remains in the care of professional Jodi Montgomery, who handles her medical and personal affairs. The nature of the singer’s mental health problems has never been publicly revealed.

Spears came out emotionally in June and July against the court-appointed guardianship, calling it humiliating and abusive and accusing her father of ruining her life. Spears has not performed since 2018 and has said that she will not return to the stage as long as her father remains in control of her career.

The singer, who posts frequently on social media, made no immediate reference Thursday to her father’s decision to step aside.

Thursday’s court document says Jamie Spears has always cared about her daughter’s best interests and has not forced her to do anything.

“As she admits, Ms. Spears is strong and stands up for what she wants. Mr. Spears has tried to do everything in his power to satisfy Ms. Spears’ wishes, be it regarding her life. personal, family or career, while fulfilling her duties and obligations as curator (and) protecting her from others who seek to take advantage of her, “the document said.
