The 69-year-old, who has been in charge of his daughter’s estate for several years, allegedly filed documents on Thursday, August 12, to leave his role. A judge must sign the request.
“There is, in fact, no real reason to suspend or remove Mr. Spears as custodian of the estate … and it is highly debatable whether a change of conservator at this time would be in Mrs. Spears’ best interests,” Jamie’s legal team noted in legal documents obtained by Us weekly. “Nevertheless, although Mr Spears is the constant target of unwarranted attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continued service as her conservator would be in her best interest. So even though he has to contest this unwarranted petition to be removed, 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 application continues: “Regardless of his formal title, Mr. Spears will always be Mrs. Spears’ father, he will always love her unconditionally, and he will always look after her best interests. … Mr. Spears continues to serve dutifully and he should not be suspended or removed, and certainly not based on false allegations. Mr. Spears is willing to step down when the time comes, but the transition must be orderly and include a solution to issues pending before the Court. “
Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, addressed landmark developments Thursday and told U.S in a statement, “This is a great victory for Britney Spears and another step towards justice. I announced in court on 14 July that after 13 years of status quo, it was time for Mr Spears to be suspended or removed as a conservator and that my company and I would move aggressively and quickly to that result. Twelve days later, my firm filed a petition for Mr. Spears’ suspension and removal based on strong, insurmountable legal reasons, which were unequivocally supported by the law and all parties involved, including Jodi Montgomery, Britney Spears and her medical team. ”
He continued: “We are pleased that Mr Spears and his lawyer have today admitted in a case that he should be removed. However, we are disappointed with their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Mrs Spears and others. We look forward to continuing our vigorous investigation into the behavior of Spears and others over the past 13 years while reaping millions of dollars from his daughter’s estate, and I look forward to taking Spears’ sworn deposit in the near future. Meanwhile, rather than come up with false accusations and take cheap shots at his own daughter, Mr Spears should be silent and immediately step aside. ”
U.S confirmed in September 2019 that Jamie requested to “temporarily relinquish the powers of the Conservatory” due to “personal health reasons”. Britney’s Chief of Care, Jodi Montgomery, subsequently assumed the role. A year later, the pop star requested that her father be permanently removed as custodian of her property more than 12 years after he took over.
“Britney and her father have one complicated relationship, ”Told a source U.S in August 2020. “Jamie stepped in at a point in Britney’s life when she was extremely vulnerable to predators seeking to exploit her for financial gain. Over time, Britney began to resent her father, who was really in a non-wind position. Jamie could not be her father and it just got worse when Jamie had health issues [in November 2018]. ”
“The world has no idea. It’s up to the court in California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s not someone else’s business. I love my daughter. I love all my kids. But that’s our business. It is private, ”he said Page six at the time. “Every year I have to report every nickel and penny to the court. How the hell would I steal something? ”
News of Jamie’s plan to leave comes two months after Britney publicly approached her conservatory for the first time since 2008 and told a judge in June she would sue her family.
“My father and everyone involved in this conservatory and my management who played a key role in punishing me – they should be in jail,” the “Gimme More” singer said, claiming she wanted her “life back” after 13 years under legal agreement.
In July, Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears, apparently took the side of the Grammy winner and argued in court documents that Jamie’s relationship with Britney “has only fallen into fear and hatred” because of his “complete control over her.”
Same month, the Crossroads star told the court that Jamie should be “accused of abuse at the conservatory” and remarked: “This conservatory has allowed my father to ruin my life.”
