Britney Spears lost a bid to remove James Spears, her father, from the conservatorship of her estate. On Tuesday, Brenda Penny, a Los Angeles superior court judge, declined to suspend her father from the role of conservator. However, she did not rule against future petitions for his suspension or for removal from his current role in her life and estate. So, this is a temporary setback for the pop star.
Britney Spears’ attorney Samuel D. Ingham III told the judge, “My client is afraid of her father. She will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career.”
From 2008 James Spears has been her co-conservator, after the singer had a huge public meltdown. In 2019 Attorney Andrew Wallet resigned from his co-conservatorship making her father the sole conservator. Financial company Bessemer Trust has now been appointed as a co-conservator.
Legal experts had told the Los Angeles times that it was unusual for someone as young and productive as Spears to be in a probate conservatorship. A conservator is generally appointed to look out for the interests of those who are infirm, old or mentally disabled. The unusually long duration of this probate case had created a lot of debate and needs to be resolved as there have been a few decisions taken by her father that could be construed as controversial ones.
