Britney Spears became under Jamie Spears’ “too controlling” conservatorship.
A new report released confidential documents about Britney Spears and her conservatorship. It cited how the singer’s conservatorship affected her life.
In a document released by the New York Times, it has been revealed that Spears once wanted to renovate her cabinets. However, Jamie barged in and said that the renovation would be too expensive.
This type of incident led her to finally file a complaint to a court investigator in 2016. During that time, she expressed how sick she already got after being taken advantage of by her father.
Spears added that she was the one working hard to earn money but everyone around her spent it on their own.
In the same year, the Toxic singer expressed her desire to terminate the conservatorship. She stated that her father was “too obsessed” with controlling her life.
“She articulated she feels the conservatorship has become an oppressive and controlling tool against her,” the court investigator wrote, as quoted by Fox News. “[She said it was] too much control … Too, too much!”
Jamie Spears became her conservator of her person and co-conservator of her estate. He began working with attorney Andrew Wallet in 2008.
In October 2020, Wallet stepped down as the estate manager. The financial firm Bessemer Trust succeeded in his place.
Unfortunately, Jamie remains the co-conservator of the singer’s money but not her personal affairs. Licensed fiduciary Jodi Montgomery started overseeing that part temporarily in September 2019.
Britney has had the chances to end the conservatorship
In response to her previous attempts, Jamie’s legal team said that the singer could have ended it a long time ago. They added that the singer already had every opportunity to do so.
“Any time Britney wants to end her conservatorship, she can ask her lawyer to file a petition to terminate it; she has always had this right but in 13 years has never exercised it,” Jamie’s lawyer, Vivian Lee Thoreen, told People. “Britney knows that her Daddy loves her, and that he will be there for her whenever and if she needs him, just as he always has been — conservatorship or not.”
But Spears only filed for it years later, although the court kept on denying her request.
Britney Spears will appear in a virtual hearing on Wednesday to address Judge Brenda Penny.
