Britney Spears , 39, has spent a third of her life under the control of her father. Since 2008, 13 years ago, Jamie Spears has been the artist's legal guardian, allowing her to control everything from her finances to her movements or her professional career. However, there are more and more voices around the singer who ask that this control end once and for all and that she, or someone she trust, be the one who takes the reins. And now it has been Spears herself who has spoken about it.
The singer has made her request through her lawyer. On Tuesday afternoon this demanded before the Superior Court of Justice of Los Angeles, California, which is the one who is handling the case, that Jamie Spears cease to be the person who has legal custody. The artist wants her tutor to be Jodi Montgomery, an administrator who on occasions, due to the health problems that her father suffered in September 2019, has managed his entire tutoring. Since that September 2019, when he began to intervene in her custody, Montgomery has control over the artist's personal decisions, while Jamie Spears has control over the properties of the vocalist.
Britney Spears, the drama that does not stop Britney Spears cherishes freedom 13 years later
The artist's lawyer cites an October 2014 order in her petition to the judges, which has been obtained by CNN , where it is said that Spears suffers from “an inability to consent to any form of medical treatment, ”and that is why he wants Montgomery to get his 100% mentorship. In the lawsuit, it is explained that Montgomery would have the ability to make medical decisions concerning Spears, and that it could also "restrict and limit visitors for any reason", with the exception of the artist's lawyer, and that it can "hire caregivers and security guards ”on his behalf. Decisions that Jamie Spears makes so far. According to the American media TMZ , the singer feels comfortable and calm with the decisions that Jodi Montgomery is making and that is why she wants to expand her radius of action, and it seems that Jamie Spears would agree with this transfer of powers. father of Britney Spears and, on the right, the singer.A
P Last November Spears made a drastic decision and announced – never directly, but through his legal representatives – that if his father did not stop being his guardian , she would leave acting permanently. A step forward for a woman who has been practically silent for almost 15 years while her father made the most important legal, financial, professional and personal decisions of her life.
Spears does not fight to avoid being mentored; in fact, his lawyer has stated on occasion that his abilities are not 100% and came to compare them, with caution and clarification, with those of a person in a coma . The only thing the Toxic singer wants is that her father doesn't have to be the person with all that power. He already requested it in August of last year and now it is reiterated, with more power if possible, for two reasons: because his trial was reviewed again in mid-February and because a powerful documentary made by The New York Times with many testimonies (but not the artist or his family) showed that Spears' father was not the right person to manage the fortune of a woman who, despite being protected, continues to work and has an estimated fortune of 200 million euros .
Last February, after the review of the case, the judges gave the singer a certain joy when they denied her father to keep 100% of her custody. You will have to share it with the private fund Bessemer Trust, which Spears appointed a few years ago, as dictated by Judge Brenda Penny. We will have to wait for the next hearing, which will be held on April 27, to find out the status of the custody of who in the nineties was one of the brightest stars in show business.
