In a court file obtained by CNN in early September, Britney Spears’ father and guardian of her estate, Jamie Spears, cited their daughter’s pleas in two separate court hearings over the summer in your request to terminate the 13-year guardianship.
“Recent events related to this conservatorship have cast doubt on whether circumstances have changed to such an extent that there may no longer be grounds for establishing a conservatorship,” the filing states.
“Ms. Spears has told this Court that she wants to regain control of her life without the safety rails of a conservatorship. She wants to be able to make decisions regarding her own health care, decide when, where and how often to receive therapy. She wants to control the money she has earned from her career and spend it unsupervised or careless. She wants to be able to get married and have a baby, if she wants to. In short, she wants to live her life however she wants without the limitations of a healer or a procedure. judicial “, reads part of the petition.
“As Mr. Spears has said over and over again, all he wants is the best for his daughter. If Ms. Spears wants to end the guardianship and thinks she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears thinks she should get it. chance, “the presentation read.
Mathew Rosengart, Britney Spears’ attorney, called Tuesday’s development “vindication.”
“This presentation represents another legal victory for Britney Spears, a massive one, as well as a vindication for Ms. Spears,” Rosengart said in a statement to CNN. “It appears that Mr. Spears believes that he may try to avoid accountability and justice, even sitting down to an affidavit and responding to another discovery under oath.”
Rosengart added that Britney Spears “will continue to explore all options.”
The elder Spears has served as the curator of his daughter’s estate since it was established in 2009. He was also the curator of her person, overseeing her health and medical issues until she stepped aside in 2019. It was then that Jodi Montgomery was appointed temporary curator of The Person of Spears.
During a hearing in July, Britney Spears said she wanted to press charges against her father for “abuse of guardianship” and called the settlement “bloody cruelty.”
Jamie Spears stated in a previous court filing that he intends resign as conservative.
