Britney Spears’ Request To Remove Father As Her Conservator Denied
Britney Spears’ request to have her father removed as her conservator has been denied by a judge in California.
Britney Spears has been in the public eye for more than 20 years. The kind of fame she achieved at a very young age would likely take a toll on just about anyone. In 2007, Spears suffered a very public breakdown during which she infamously shaved her head in public. Shortly after that, her father Jamie Spears was selected to be the singer’s conservator.
A conservatorship is put in place when a judge deems that a person is unable to care for themselves. As conservator to Britney, her father Jamie has been responsible for making decisions about her finances and her career for more than a decade. It wasn’t until last year that Jamie shared some of the responsibility due to suffering from poor health.

However, Britney has been trying to have her father removed as her conservator completely. That request was denied this week by a judge in California. The judge has ordered that the Bessemer Trust Co. share the conservatorship with Jamie going forward. Britney’s hope was for the Bessemer Trust Co. to take over entirely going forward, but that will not be the case. The judge did add that she has not ruled out hearing a similar motion in the future, reports CBS.
Britney has acknowledged that the conservatorship was needed when first put in place. However, she now argues that is no longer the case, yet claims that her father plans on trying “to retain full functional control of her assets, books, and records” despite her objections. She also claims he didn’t inform her that her business manager resigned and a new one had been appointed.
Jamie’s argument includes him taking Britney’s estate from being in debt to its $60 million value today. He also takes credit for his daughter’s good health and reuniting her with her children. It’s a messy situation for sure, and this likely won’t be the last we see of it, nor the last time Britney goes to court in an attempt to have her dad removed as her conservator.
