‘Britney is no longer a slave.’ Following a court hearing, Jamie Spears was removed as the singer’s conservator.
Following a court hearing in California, Jamie Spears, BRITNEY SPEARS’ father, has been removed as the singer’s conservator.
Jamie Spears, 69, has been removed as Britney Spear’s conservator, more than a decade after a court order gave him control of the singer’s finances. Brenda Penny, a Los Angeles judge, also ordered that Mr Spears will no longer be the conservator of his daughter’s inheritance.
Following an otherwise “untenable” scenario, Judge Penny stated removing Britney’s father from the legal arrangement was in the singer’s “best interests.”
It also represented a “toxic environment,” she noted.
According to reports, an accountant named John Zabel will temporarily take over the post, allowing him to manage the singer’s finances.
Erin Lee Carr, the director of the Netflix documentary Britney versus Spears, took to Twitter to express her feelings about the hearing.
Britney Spears is available for photo shoots.
“Jamie Spears has been suspended as Britney Jean Spears’ conservator,” he stated.
“Britney is free,” Ms Carr added.
The singer’s decision to be suspended has been hailed as a great achievement.
During previous court sessions in June and July, Ms Spears spoke out against her father.
She even claimed she was forced to take medication and was denied the right to have children.
Mathew Rosengart, Ms Spears’ lawyer, has also demanded a probe into the behavior of those who initially managed the conservatorship in 2008.
Ms Spears was alleged to have experienced a mental breakdown, prompting the court-ordered arrangement.
However, her father’s attorney, Vivian Thoreen, has protested to the suspension, according to the Guardian.
She even seemed to reject parts of Ms Spears’ statements during her emotional testimony last summer.
Ms Thoreen stated, “She was not cross-examined.”
“No one knows whether or not those claims are true.”
The singer was in court in June, but she was absent from the hearing on Wednesday.
