Jamie Spears filed Tuesday’s petition to end Britney Spears‘ conservatorship. It was filed one month after he resigned as Britney Spears’ court-appointed conservator.
Jamie Spears filed the Los Angeles Superior Court filing stating that the pop singer’s circumstances have changed and that it is possible to establish a conservatorship. According to NBC News
Spears also stated that his daughter would like to have “control over her own life without the safety rails that a conservatorship provides.” CNN reported that Spears said that her daughter would want to make her own decisions about her medical care, therapy, and whether she will get married or have more children.
In addition, the petition argued that a psychological evaluation would not be required under the probate codes to allow Spears’ termination of conservatorship, NBC reports.
Judge Brenda Penny, who oversees Spears’ case, will decide whether or not to end the conservatorship.
Mathew Rosengart, Britney Spears’ lawyer, said in a statement that it was a “massive triumph” and “vindication for the singer” but that their investigation was “into financial.
The court filing came a few days ahead of Spears’ next conservatorship hearing on Sept. 29. Last month Spears’ father agreed to step down as conservator, but he did not indicate that he would seek to end Spears’ conservatorship. Spears’ lawyer Mathew Rosengart previously filed a petition to speed up removing Spears’ father and replacing him with California certified public accountant Jason Rubin. Britney has been in a conservatorship ever since 2008 after suffering from mental health issues. In June, she made a virtual court appearance against the conservatorship. She stated that she was forced to work nonstop by her conservators and take medication like lithium. She said that she was ready to get married and start her own family. But, she was not allowed to see a doctor remove her IUD.
Jamie Spears said in an August filing that he would step down and help with the transition to a new court-appointed conservator to avoid a “public feud” with the pop star. His legal team said that Spears only assumed the role as conservator in 2008 when his daughter desperately needed it.
