Britney Spears’s father Jamie Spears has finally decided that he will step down from his role in her conservatorship. Celebrity pop singer Britney Spears has been fighting his role in her conservative worship for 13 years.
It has been a tough battle for Britney Spears who requested a Los Angeles judge to remove her father from this role. The judge had formally decided a big no on this and now her father’s legal team wants to make sure the transition is going to be a smooth one for whomever takes over.
Britney Spears’ father, Jamie, says he is willing to step down from his role in her conservatorship “when the time is right,” according to court documents filed Thursday. For years, the pop star has pushed to remove her father from the court-appointed arrangement that has controlled her career and finances for 13 years.
“Mr. Spears is willing to step down when the time is right, but the transition needs to be orderly and include a resolution of matters pending before the Court,” the filing said.
The filing was a response to Britney’s lawyers, who requested a Los Angeles judge to remove him from his role. The judge denied this, and now Jamie’s legal team says he wants to help ensure a smooth transition for the next person who controls the conservatorship. “There is no doubt that the Conservatorship saved Ms. Spears from disaster, supported her when she needed it the most, protected her and her reputation from harm, and facilitated the restoration of her career,” the court filing said.
Jamie Spears attorneys denied any allegations that he mistreated his daughter Ann always was interested in her best interests to oversee this conservatorship. his lawyers state the only reason he decided to step down was because of what was going on in the public and was looking out for Britney’s best interests. Jamie Spears claims he has been the target of attacks that are unjustified and believes this should not be a public battle, as mentioned in the court filing.
“Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests,” as reported in the court documents filed.
