Britney Spears’ dad Jamie has reportedly filed to end his daughter’s conservatorship which has been in place for 13 years
Britney Spears’ dad has filed to end his daughter’s conservatorship, according to reports.
He has been in control of the singer’s estate for more than 13 years.
Jamie Spears, 69, has reportedly filed the petition to Los Angeles Superior Court which states that his daughter “is entitled to have this Court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required.”
NBC reports that the filing continues to say that the singer’s circumstances have changed “to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist”.
The Toxic singer, 39, told a judge at a hearing in June that she could compare herself to a sex trafficking victim under the conservatorship and admitted she cried every day.
She also said that she was forced onto contraception and wasn’t allowed to marry.

Britney recently appointed a new attorney to fight her battle. Mathew Rosengart filed a petition last month to remove dad Jamie and appealed for the court to replace him with a professional accountant.
He argued that her dad wasn’t acting in the singer’s best interest and hinted that he may have misused some of her finances.
Judge Brenda Penny was expected to rule on this petition at a hearing set for September 29.
The latest news of Jamie’s request will be a huge win for Britney and the fans of the Free Britney campaign who have longed for the conservatorship to end.
While Jamie continued to deny all allegations of abuse against him, he agreed to step down from his role last month, saying he would do so “when the time is right”.
