Britney Spears' Father Jamie files to end conservatorship
Jamie Spears is asking that the court rule his conservatorship of Britney is no longer needed
Britney Spears' father has officially filed court documents requesting that his conservatorship of his daughter is terminated.
It is thought that Britney's clear desire for her conservatorship to finish, along with other ways she has demonstrated that she is taking back her independence, has convinced her father, Jamie Spears, that the conservatorship should be brought to an end.
According to ET Online, the court documents read: "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'.
"In recent months, she has attended two Court proceedings, has certainly made her wishes known about the conservatorship, and has asked this Court directly to end the conservatorship.
"As Mr. Spears has said, again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter.
"If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance."
Jamie Spears, 69, is asking that the court reevaluate his conservatorship of Britney, which has seen him be in charge of her, her estate, and her financial affairs since 2008 when the conservatorship was imposed due to concerns over her mental health. Jamie hopes that the court find this no longer to be required.
In July, Britney began court proceedings to try and have her conservatorship ended, describing her father's treatment of her as "cruelty", making a number of shocking claims about her father's treatment of her.
But last month, Kamie said that he was willing to step down as conservator of Britney's finances "when the time is right," something Britney's attorney described as a "major victory" for the singer.
Jamie ended his conservatorship of Britney's personal affairs in 2019 due to health reasons but still controls all her estate, finances, and business arrangements.
