Britney Spears tries AGAIN to remove father from conservator role by ‘nominating trust company’ to take over – The Sun
BRITNEY Spears has once again attempted remove her father Jamie from the role of conservator.
The 38-year-old singer has now nominated a trust company to oversee her finances.
Last month, Britney stated that she wants a "qualified corporate fiduciary" to serve as executor of her estate.
And this week, she requested that Bessemer Trust Company, N.A. be appointed to the role, ET reported.
It's her second bid in two weeks to stop her father from controlling her finances.
The new court filings claimed Britney's conservatorship is "voluntary" and that she "wishes to exercise her right to nominate a conservator of the estate under Probate Code section 1810".
The documents say the hitmaker doesn't have a developmental disability and she is not a patient of, nor on leave of absence from, a state mental health institution.
It comes amid claims Britney thinks Jamie "treats her like a child" and "doesn't listen to her".
"Britney still wants the conservatorship to end at some point," a source told People.
"But more urgently right now she doesn't want her dad to regain the sole conservator role. Jamie is very old school. He treats Britney like a child."
Britney said she was "strongly opposed" to Jamie being her conservator, in court documents filed in August.
A Los Angeles judge later ruled that the 38-year-old will remain under the legal control of her father, Jamie Spears until at least February 2021.
Britney lost her battle to have her father removed as the sole guardian of her legal and financial affairs at an LA courthouse.
Why is #freebritney trending and what does the star have to say about her conservatorship?
Britney's conservatorship has sparked outrage among fans, particularly since she herself has made it clear she does not want it to continue in its current form.
It was implemented in 2008 after a series of public meltdowns.
Britney's lawyer, Samuel D Ingham III has said that she is "strongly opposed" to Jamie Spears continuing to control her affairs.
Due to health issues last year – which are came after claims of a physical altercation with his grandson Sean Preston – Jamie had stepped down temporarily from his role in Britney's conservatorship.
Britney instead wants Jodi Montgomery, who is a trained conservator, to have permanent control.
Jamie Spears says Britney's conservatorship is "no one else's business" and #FreeBritney movement "is a joke."
He told Page Six: "All these conspiracy theorists don't know anything. The world don'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."
The Toxic songstress had asked a judge to make her temporary care manager Jodi Montgomery – who took over last year when her father became ill – to continue permanently as her conservator.
She also wants "a major overhaul in how her conservatorship is run is needed to reflect her current lifestyle and her wishes".
This confirms reports that the star no longer wishes to perform at this moment in time.
