Britney Spears’ father to step down as conservator

Britney Spears’ father has agreed to step down as the singer’s conservator after 13 years, US media report.

The singer’s career has been in the hands of legal guardians since public concerns over her mental health in 2008, reports the BBC.

The court-ordered agreement gave her father, Jamie Spears, control over her estate and other aspects of her life.

But she later sought to remove him from the role, calling for him to be charged with “conservatorship abuse”. 

The conservatorship arrangement was imposed in 2008 when concerns were raised over her mental health.

The court-ordered agreement gave Jamie Spears control over his daughter’s estate and other aspects of her life.

The conservatorship is split into two parts. One is for her estate and financial affairs, while the other is for her as a person.

Mr Spears stepped down as his daughter’s personal conservator in 2019 due to health issues but has continued to oversee her business arrangements.
