In a lawsuit filed by CNN on Tuesday, Elder Spears cited his daughter’s pleas at two separate court hearings over the summer in his request to close the 13-year-old conservatory.
“Recent events in connection with this conservatory have called into question whether circumstances have changed to such an extent that there is no longer any basis for setting up a conservatory,” the case states.
“Mrs Spears has told this court that she wants control of her life back without the safety bars of a conservatory. She will be able to make decisions about her own medical care and decide when, where and how often she should receive therapy. She will want to control the money she has earned in her career and spend it unattended or unsupervised. “
“She will be able to get married and have a baby if she chooses. In short, she will live her life as she chooses without the restrictions of a conservator or trial,” the petition reads in part.
“As Mr Spears has said over and over again, everything he wants is best for his daughter. If Mrs Spears wants to resign from the Conservatory and thinks she can manage her own life, Mr Spears thinks she should get it’s a chance, “the application said.
CNN has contacted the singer’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart to get a comment.
The eldest Spears has served as custodian of his daughter’s property since it was established in 2009. He was also the custodian of her persona, overseeing her health and medical issues until he stepped aside in 2019. That was when Jodi Montgomery was appointed temporary conservator of Spears’ person.
During a hearing in July, Britney Spears said she wanted to accuse her father of “conservatory abuse” and called the event “gross cruelty”.
Tuesday’s development comes after Jamie Spears said in an earlier trial that he intended to resign as conservator.
Just last week, Rosengart stated that he called on Spears to resign immediately “before being suspended.”
A previously scheduled hearing in the case is set for September 29.
