Britney Spears’ father Jaime Spears is officially out as her conservator, after a judge in her case approved the singer’s long-time “care-manager” to take his place.
Members of Britney’s legal team, along with Kfed’s attorney, and her mother Lynn’s lawyers appeared in LA County Court to discuss the removal of Jaime Spears as conservator.
Britney’s lawyer asked the courtroom be cleared of witnesses and the media, because sensitive medical information could come up along with discussions of the children.
According to the documents obtained by The Blast, her sister Jaime Lynn and brother Bryan were also give notice about the hearing.
A temporary order was put in place removing Jamie and approving Jodi Montgomery.
According to the order, Jodi will have the power to “limit visitors by any means, provided that (Jodi) shall not prevent (Britney) from meeting with her court appointed attorney.”
Also, she “shall have the power to retain caretakers for (Britney) on a 24hr/7 day basis. The power to retain security guards for (Britney) on a 24 hour/7 day basis.”
Lastly, she will have the power to communicate with Spears’ doctors about her “medical treatment, diagnosis, and testing.” That will include all records regarding her “psychiatric” treatment.
As we reported, Jaime filed documents last week, asking the judge in the case to allow him to step down for “medical reasons.” In the filing, he also requested Britney’s care manager Jodi Montgomery be allowed to fill in for him.
It seemed from the documents, he sees it only as a temporary move.
But, Jaime is currently under investigation for child abuse for allegedly grabbing and shaking Britney’s son Sean. Kevin Federline, the kids father, filed a police report and received a restraining order keeping Jaime away from them.
So, it seems he is being proactive in removing himself, before the court and or Federline will argue to get him thrown out anyways.
As for Jodi, we’re told K-Fed’s team wants to gather information about her, but presumes she is qualified.
He looks forward to working with Jodi as the temporary conservator,, especially economic issues, involving the children, arise. Britney is currently paying Kevin child support for the kids.
