The #FreeBritney campaign apparently has a happy ending! Jamie Spears will reportedly step down as Britney Spears’ co-conservator.
On Thursday (Aug. 12), TMZ obtained new legal documents that reveal Jamie will be stepping down from his role as financial conservator.
“There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate,” the statement reportedly reads. “And it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears’ best interests.”
Despite the facts stated above, it seems as though Jamie will be transitioning out of his role as financial conservator of Britney and her estate.
“Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests,” the records continue. “So, even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter’s new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator.”
Jamie allegedly degraded Lynne Spears for her reported minimal involvement in the conservatorship and Britney’s life over the last thirteen years. Jamie alleged that Britney was being manipulated by others and also suffering financially and wanted to rescue her. He also noted that Britney was “in crisis, desperately in need of help” when she was put under the conservatorship almost thirteen years ago. He denies that he has ever forced his daughter to do anything, including performing concerts, something that Britney claimed in her court testimony.
“Regardless of his formal title, Mr. Spears will always be Ms. Spears’ father, he will always love her unconditionally, and he will always look out for her best interests,” the statement concluded.
Britney’s attorney, Matthew Rosengart, told the outlet that they are “pleased” that he chose to step down. Rosengart promised that this fight isn’t over and they will continue looking into Jamie’s past actions and how the conservatorship hurt Britney.
“We are disappointed, however, by their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms. Spears and others,” Rosengart said. “We look forward to continuing our vigorous investigation into the conduct of Mr. Spears, and others, over the past 13 years, while he reaped millions of dollars from his daughter’s estate, and I look forward to taking Mr. Spears’s sworn deposition in the near future. In the interim, rather than making false accusations and taking cheap shots at his own daughter, Mr. Spears should step aside immediately.”
