Britney Spears is asking a judge to ax her father Jamie Spears as co-conservator in the never-ending battle over control of her life.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Britney’s lawyer is asking the court to strip Jamie of his power in the 12-year-long conservatorship.
The lawyer is asking for Bessemer Trust Company, who currently is a co-conservator with Jamie, to become the sole conservator of Brit’s finances. They say Britney believes this would be best for her.
The docs state Britney was informed that her longtime business management company, Tristar Sports and Entertainment Group, had resigned from representing her on October 28.
She says her father went ahead and hired another manager, Michael Kane of Miller Kaplan. Britney accuses her father of failing to tell her about the new manager. She claims he never gave her notice, the opportunity to interview Michael, or consider other options.
Britney says her father’s decision caused concern because his goal, “is to introduce a new gatekeeper who admittedly has a major working relationship with [Jamie’s] legal team.”
Britney believes it’s all part of her father’s attempts to, “retain full functional control of her assets, books and records.”
Over the past couple of months, Britney has been making moves to take control of her life. Earlier this month, Britney scored a huge victory in the battle when a judge granted a motion allowing her to hire outside counsel to represent her.
Jamie objected to the motion saying Britney might not have the mental capacity to make her own decisions.
Amid the family drama, Britney reappeared on social media after going MIA for nearly two weeks. Many of her fans grew concerned after she stopped posting on Instagram. Britney is known for making multiple posts per day and her inactivity was odd.
Britney posted a video addressing the situation and thanking her fans for their support. She said, “So I know there have been a lot of comments and a lot of people saying a lot of different things about me. I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m fine, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.”
As The Blast first reported, Britney’s sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, recently withdrew a petition in court that would have given her more control of the singer’s finances. She informed the court she no longer wishes to pursue this path. The decision was revealed during a court hearing this week.
The original petition was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court back in August. The move came as Jamie Lynn is relaunching her career with the reboot of “Zoey 101” on Nickelodeon.
