"All he wants is what's best for his daughter"

Britney Spears’ father has filed a petition to end her conservatorship after 13 years.

Just one month after agreeing to step down as the conservator of his daughter’s estate, Jamie Spears has filed to “terminate” her conservatorship.

His filing, which was submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, states: “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. In short, she wants to live her life as she chooses without the constraints of a conservator or court proceeding.

“As Mr Spears has said again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter.

"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,” the filing states.

Jamie also stated that Britney’s personal conservator Jodi Montgomery, who oversees her personal affairs, should be discharged from her role too.

The Toxic singer officially filed a petition to replace her father as the conservator of her estate in July.

The 39 year-old was placed under a conservatorship after she suffered an alleged breakdown in 2008.

The arrangement put her estate, financial assets, and some personal assets under the control of her father Jamie, and lawyer Andrew Wallet, who has since resigned from the role.

The pop star’s conservatorship has been under review since 2019, after she accused her father of forcing her to enter a mental health facility.
