Britney Spears’ father has filed a petition to end the conservatory, which has controlled the pop superstar’s life and career since 2008.
In a breathtaking move, Jamie Spears, curator of his daughter’s estate, said “recent events” had questioned whether she still needed a court to oversee her affairs.
The lawsuit in a Los Angeles court states: “Ms. Spears has told that court that she wants to regain control of her life without the safety rails of a conservatory.
“She would like to be able to decide for herself about her medical care, when, where and how often she will be treated. She wants to control the money she’s made from her career and spend it without supervision or supervision.
“She wants to get married and have a baby if she wants. In short, she wants to live her life at will, without the constraints of a restorer or legal process. “
Spears, 39, has appealed to the court twice in the past few months, calling the conservatories “abusive” and urging them to remove her father from his role.
Jamie’s lawyers said he always wanted the best for his daughter.
The file added, “As Mr Spears has said time and again, he only wants what is best for his daughter. If Ms. Spears wants to quit the Conservatory and believes she can manage her own life, Mr. Spears believes she should get this chance. ”
Spears was placed under the Conservatory in 2008 after a series of mental breakdowns – a complex legal regime usually reserved for the very old or infirm.
She has not performed since 2018 and told the court that she would not return to the stage while her father was a conservator.
