Britney Spears’ Father Jamie Has Finally Been Removed From Her Conservatorship
On Thursday, Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny ruled to remove Jamie Spears as conservator immediately, after Britney’s impassioned testimonies. Instead, she is now able to select a temporary replacement to oversee her finances.
The decision marks a huge win for Britney, her legal team and those who have been fighting for her freedom. The 39-year-old’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart described Jamie as a “cruel, toxic and abusive man,” saying his client wants him removed “today.”
“Britney deserves to wake up tomorrow without her father as her conservator,” Rosengart said.
CPA John Zabel will replace Britney’s father as conservator of her estate temporarily, controlling her financial decisions until a plan is put into place.
As for the termination of the conservatorship, Rosengart believes it should be removed soon. He has suggested setting a termination hearing within the next 45 days, in either October or November.
The pop star’s legal battle has been long and drawn out, and has been the subject of many documentaries as of late.
Today’s news is the most significant development in the ongoing conservatorship saga, which has unfolded over the past few months. When the verdict was announced, a crowd of people outside chanting Free Britney erupted in celebration.
Britney has previously pleaded with the court to allow her to regain control of her life and made some shocking allegations in the process. Some of those accusations include being forced to go on tour in 2018 and being sent to a mental health facility against her will in 2019.
She also claimed that she was once put on lithium “out of nowhere,” leaving her incoherent.
“I shouldn’t be in a conservatorship if I can work and provide money and work for myself and pay other people. It makes no sense,” she said at the time.
“He loved the control he had over me, one hundred thousand per cent.”
