Britney Spears’ father Jamie has officially filed to end her conservatorship after 13 years.
According to court documents, Jamie stated in his filing on Tuesday that Britney may no longer need a conservatorship. Britney “is entitled to have this Court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required,” the filing states.
“Recent events related to this conservatorship have called into question whether circumstances have changed to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist,” the filing continues.
Jamie’s petition also references Britney’s emotional court hearing over the summer: “Ms. Spears has told this Court that she wants control of her life back without the safety rails of a conservatorship.”
“She wants to be able to make decisions regarding her own medical care, deciding when, where and how often to get therapy. She wants to control the money she has made from her career and spend it without supervision or oversight. She wants to be able to get married and have a baby, if she so chooses,” the petition continues.
“In short, she wants to live her life as she chooses without the constraints of a conservator or court proceeding,” states the petition.
“As Mr. Spears has said again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter,” the filing says. “If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance.”
