Britney Spears is waiting patiently for her father Jamie Spears to give up his powers and role of the conservator before she officially “believes” it will come about. “She’ll believe he’s actually stepping down completely when it happens because it’s been so long and everyone keeps telling her he’s going to step down and nothing ever happens,” a source close to the crisis stated.
Her dad documented papers last week accepting to step back from the role he’s had possessed over her business matters for 13 years, however, the timeline for the action to take place stays uncertain. The filing also comes weeks after Britney inquired for Jamie to be eliminated from the role in her bombshell court statement, but the judgment was rejected by judge Brenda J. Penny. Although the current move by Jamie is a step towards liberty for Britney, she stays “disappointed” that Jamie is continuing to have the role as of Aug. 15.
“Britney is disappointed that Jamie is still her conservator, but she understands that this is all a long process. She is happy that the process to have him formally removed is finally happening and she’s feeling confident it will eventually happen,” the source said. “It’s like taking it off the shelf and putting it back, the back and forth situation where everyone tells her he’s stepping down right now and that’s not what happens. It’s very hard for her,” they also clarified.
While Jamie is the conservator of her estate Jodi Montgomery continues to be the conservator of her person. This centres Montgomery can authorize who Britney can and can’t see, as well as communicate quickly with her medical specialists. During the battle to end her conservator, Britney also petitioned the ability to hire a lawyer of her preference, saying that former lawyer Sam Ingham “never fought” for her
With views to Jamie, Britney has made it publicly understood she wants her dad out of the conservatorship part. “I am petitioning the court because I want my dad out as conservator…I was scared of my dad growing up,” she clarified to judge Penny during a testimony. “I want to press charges on my dad today,” she pleaded, also stating she wished she could “sue” her entire family for “conservatorship abuse.”
