Britney Spears no longer wants her father in charge of her life

KARACHI: Ever since her infamous public breakdowns happened about twelve years ago, Britney Spears has lived in California under a court-approved conservatorship which oversees her finances as well as her personal well-being.

The conservatorship was something that was steered largely by her father, James Spears, for over a decade, functioning mostly out of public view. Fans and even some of her family members have expressed their worries aloud concerned about the control exerted over Britney Spears and her fortune which resulted in the #FreeBritney movement that had started to trend on social media. The movement protest against this control and demanded Britney Spears to have autonomy over her finances and person.

According to HuffPost, Britney Spears asked a court on Tuesday to keep her father from asserting the broad control he has over her life since the past 12 years.

In documents filed by her lawyer Samuel D. Ingham III, appointed by the court, that publicly aired the wishes of the 38-year-old pop star, she asked for her father to not return to the role of conservator of her person, which gave him power over her major life decisions from 2008 until 2019, until he temporarily stepped down, owing to his health problems.

“Britney is strongly opposed to James return as a conservator of her person,” the document says.

It is definitely a time to rejoice for the members and participants of the #FreeBritney movement. James Spears has been a conservator over her daughter’s finances for about 12 years, but for the first 11 years, he served as a co-conservator with attorney Andrew M. Wallet, who resigned last year. This allowed James Spears sole power of Britney Spears’ money, life, decisions and career. Britney Spears has said the situation was something she very much wants to avoid repeating.
According to NY Times, Spears has made up her mind that she is “strongly opposed” to the idea of her father returning as a conservator of her person or her estate, according to Ingham’s filing. She is also open to the possibility of seeking to end the conservatorship entirely.
“Without in any way waiving her right to seek termination of this conservatorship in the future,” the lawyer has written, “Britney would like Ms Montgomery’s appointment as conservator of her person to be made permanent.”

James Spears spoke on the matters of conservatorship earlier this month where he denied fan-led allegations about the singer’s affairs not being properly handled on his watch.

“All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything,” he told Page Six. “The world doesn’t have a clue. It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.”

“I love my daughter,” he also added. “But this is our business. It’s private.”

According to another NYT report, James Spears earned $130,000 a year for his conservatorship, along with reimbursement for rent of his office. Reportedly, he has only requested modest increments over the last eight years however, he has also been awarded 1.5 per cent of the gross revenues generated from performances and merchandise affiliated to Britney Spear’s Las Vegas residency.
