Britney Spears has been subjected to a mandatory conservatorship exercise for more than a decade, and now that she wants out, it seems like her father, Jamie Spears, has enjoyed being in control for too long that he cannot bear to give up such power now.
Despite the public’s intervention for Jamie to give up his control over his daughter’s life and assets, he has remained adamant and insists that Britney needs him to take care of her needs because she is physically and mentally incapable.
Recently, the singer started fighting back on the infringement of her fundamental human right, as she declared to the court that the people put in charge of her, have done nothing but taken advantage of her, and her money, and tried to make her look incapable to the public. The singer went on to note that her father is one of the perpetrators who has constantly taken advantage of her over the years.
In a recent report, Jamie claimed to the court that his daughter is not capable of making excellent choices for herself, hence the need for him to remain in charge of her. The document submitted to the court also notes that Jamie deserves praises for how far he has helped Britney who has insists is an addict that is incapable of making the right choices for herself.
Now, the question is; if he has helped Britney so much, and thinks he deserves praises, why is it difficult for him to give up the conservatorship role? Now, that’s a million-dollar question. Keep reading below for more information.
Jamie Spears’ Court Argument
Looking out for one’s daughter is one thing, but trying to control her life for more than a decade, is where Jamie may have gotten it all wrong, and fans are set to straighten him out very soon.
Earlier this month, reports confirmed that the 69-year-old filed a 15-page document with a Los Angeles court, where he alleged that Britney is a drug addict, who’s also suffering from a mental health deficit. Furthermore, in the document, the conservator vehemently defended his decision to remain in charge of his daughter’s affairs, stating that it was the best decision for her at this time.
Jamie went on to tell the court that due to his daughter’s current alleged mental health problems, it is necessary for him to continue to control her, and make decisions on her behalf. From the looks of things, it’s apparent that Jamie is not willing to resign as Britney’s conservator, and there is more to it than the public’s eye sees at this time.
Jamie Says He Deserves Praises
When people do things the right way, they effortlessly receive praises from their friends, co-workers, family members, and even the public. However, in Jamie’s self-help book, he should be getting these praises especially from the public because according to him, he is only doing what’s right for his daughter. It’s possible he would se clearly once he stops reading that self-help book.
He mentioned to the court that he has been guarding and helping Britney since he became her conservator, and should be thanked for that selfless role.
No doubt, Jamie believes in his head that he is doing the right thing and will say anything and everything to justify his cruel actions, but the public sees right through it, and so does Britney. So, if he is expecting to be praised for his actions, then he must have not been reading the latest news headlines about this conservatorship issue.
When Will Jamie Spears Step Down?
Also included in the 15-page document filed with the Los Angeles court, Jamie disclosed his intentions to step down from the conservatorship role laid on him by the court in February 2008, however, he made it a point of duty not to indicate the exact time this change will happen.
It took Britney appearing before a judge on several occasions to plead for his removal, for him to come to this decision, however, there’s no telling what the “Toxic” singer would have to do next to make sure that her father effects this change as soon as possible.
Fans have been trying to keep their fingers crossed regarding Jamie’s statement to the court, but a month has almost passed, and nothing has happened yet. Well, save for the recent incident that led to a lawsuit against the singer.
Is this a ploy by Jamie to stall the process and try to implicate his daughter, to show the court that she’s unfit? Who knows at this point!
Britney Spears Slammed With A Lawsuit
A while ago, reports confirmed that Britney’s dogs went missing from a vet’s appointment carried out by one of her staffers. The reports went on to state that the singer was in a distressed state of mind, as she speculated on who could have taken her dogs away from her.
According to Page Six, a source alleged that Britney’s dogs have gone missing in the past, and her conservator often threatened to take them away whenever there was a problem. Although the singer involved the police to search for her dogs but insisted that she did not want to press any charges.
The source also revealed that Britney’s housekeeper who took the dogs to the vet might have been in one of it because she showed the singer a picture of one of the dogs looking sick on her phone, and it looked like it was in her father’s house.
According to the housekeeper, when she showed the singer the photo, in annoyance, she struck her across the face. She made this report to the police and insisted that she wants the singer to be prosecuted. Despite these accusations, many media outlets insisted that a source noted that there was no physical mark on the staffer’s face to indicate that she was struck.
