Britney Spears, 39, is still under a conservatorship — and according to new court documents, her father Jamie Spears will remain as co-conservator of her estate. News comes after the pop stars attempts to have her father removed from the role, which were denied by judge Brenda J. Penny.
Currently, Jamie Spears oversees her estate along with Bessemer Trust — and Britney Spears has requested that the bank be the sole conservator of her business affairs going forward. Bessemer Trust was added as a co-conservator in Nov. 2020.
For his part, Jamie — who has been involved with his daughter’s conservatorship since 2008 — has been requesting that Bessemer Trust be removed. That request was also denied, per court documents — meaning both Jamie and Bessemer Trust will continue to be co-conservators of her estate.
So far, there has been no request by Britney Spears or other parties to end the lengthy conservatorship completely — but it is clear that Britney does not want her father Jamie involved. In previous documents, it was revealed that the star refused to return to work until Jamie Spears was removed from his role as co-conservator.
The latest move has prompted Britney fans to take to social media as they continue to advocate for the #FreeBritney movement. “i’m literally hoping for the best for her… it’s been too damn long #FreeBritney,” one fan wrote.
