Britney Spears’ father agrees to relinquish control of her $60m estate

US

Britney Spears’ father has agreed to step down as the pop star’s conservator.

Court documents say: “Mr. Spears is willing to step down when the time is right, but the transition needs to be orderly and include a resolution of matters pending before the Court.

“In order to reach that result, the Court should encourage all interested parties to meet and confer in order to resolve those pending matters in the best interests of Ms. Spears.”

Britney Spears’ lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, said in a statement: “We are pleased that Mr Spears and his lawyer have today conceded in a filing that he must be removed.

“It is vindication for Britney. We are disappointed, however, by their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms Spears and others.”

Jamie Spears has largely controlled her life since 2008, when she was placed into a conservatorship following some difficulties with her mental health.

On 27 July, Mr Rosengart made a court filing seeking to remove her father from his role overseeing her finances as part of her conservatorship.

The Baby One More Time singer recently said she would never perform again while her father remains in control of her life, and has repeatedly called for his removal.

In a court appearance last month, Spears said she wanted her father to be charged with conservatorship abuse and removed from the legal agreement that has controlled her life for more than 13 years.
