Britney Spears’ father files court papers to end conservatorship

Britney Spears’s father has filed papers in a Los Angeles court to end the 13-year conservatorship that saw him overseeing her life and finances, according to multiple reports.

Jamie Spears wrote that his daughter “is entitled to have this court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required”, reports the BBC.

The daughter pop star, while maintaining their relationship is “abusive” and refusing to perform under his management, has sought to remove him from the role twice in the last two years.

James Spears filed his petition to terminate the conservatorship in Los Angeles Superior Court.

“As Mr. Spears has said again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter,” the document says. “If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance.”

Judge Brenda Penny, who oversees the case, will need to approve the move.
