Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, currently acts as the sole conservator of her estate and affairs. This means he legally has complete control over all the major decisions that Britney makes on a daily basis.
Ever since Britney was put in an involuntary psychiatric hold in October 2008, Jamie and her attorney, Andrew Wallet, were court-appointed to be her conservators. However, in March 2019, Andrew Wallet resigned as co-conservator which resulted in Jamie having exclusive control over the pop star’s estate until today.
However, it now seems that Britney wants to make some major life changes and no longer wants her father to act as the sole conservator. Britney’s court-appointed attorney recently filed new court documents stating that the 38-year-old wants Jamie removed as the sole conservator. She wants to appoint her care manager, Jodi Montgomery, to hold the position instead.
Jodi and Britney have been working together for a while now as Jodi currently acts as the megastar’s care manager. Jodi assesses her needs, communicates with healthcare professionals and organises proper treatments, medications, and other services for Britney. Jodi is also an experienced conservator as she and her husband, Jack Montgomery, have a fiduciary firm in Southern California, USA.
Britney has appeared to be in conflict with her family about the conservatorship for years now. Her brother, Bryan Spears, appeared on the “As Not Seen on TV Podcast” released on 23rd July, and stated that the singer has wanted to get out of this for a while now.
“She’s been in this thing for quite some time now. Obviously, there was a need for it in the beginning… She’s always wanted to get out of it. It’s very frustrating to have. Whether someone’s coming in peace to help or coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating,” he said.
The recently filed court documents also state that Britney no longer wants to perform during this time. Her attorney commented that the Princess of Pop wants her conservatorship to be managed in a manner that reflects her current lifestyle and her wishes.
