She wanted it over years ago.
According to court documents that were made public on Tuesday June 22, Britney Spears wanted her conservatorship over back when it began and was done being "controlled."
According to a New York Times report, the pop star wanted the conservatorship with her father Jamie Spears at the helm, to be terminated because she was "sick of being taken advantage of" and believed she was "the one working and earning her money but everyone around her is on her payroll."
A court investigator relied that at the time, "She [Britney] articulated that she feels the conservatorship has become an oppressive and controlling tool against her. Too much control … Too, too much!" According to the investigator, the Crossroads star believed that her father was "obsessed" with controlling every aspect of her life.
In the aftermath of the "Circus" singer's 2007 mental health issues, her father was given the reins of her life and was named conservator of her person and co-conservator of her estate alongside attorney Andrew Wallet in 2008. The 68 year-old father-of-three, is still the co-conservator of her financial affairs along with the financial firm, Bessemer Trust, after Wallet stepped down in October of 2020.
Jamie no longer has control of Britney's personal affairs.
There have been rumblings for awhile that the mother-of-two wants her father to have zero part in the conservatorship. Back in September 2019, the 39-year-old entertainer had entrusted licensed fiduciary, Jodi Montgomery, who is now her care manager, to oversee her personal affairs. Spears now allegedly wants Montgomery to take over all of her father's responsibilities within the conservatorship.
The New York Times obtained access to court documents from a 2014 hearing on the case that stated that Jamie, "has attempted to control all aspects of Britney's life, from whom she dates to the color of her kitchen cabinets, which Jamie allegedly thought would be too expensive to change." Even more alarming is the fact that allegedly Britney "only had a $2,000 weekly allowance."
Another unsettling aspect of the conservatorship under Jamie's control was that, following an objection she made creatively during a rehearsal for her Las Vegas residency, she was forced into a mental health facility against her will as a form of punishment.
Although court documents reveal elements of the superstar's truth, the legal team for Jamie maintains that "Any time Britney wants to end her conservatorship, she can ask her lawyer to file a petition to terminate it; she has always had this right but in 13 years has never exercised it," Jamie’s lawyer, Vivian Lee Thoreen has said.
It seems as though we may know where Britney and the case stands in the coming days as she prepares to take the stand and address the judge in the case on Wednesday June, 23. As OK! exclusively reported, the blonde beauty has been working with a team of legal experts so that she is well prepared for her day in court.
The chart topper "has hired a team of pros to help her with everything from her posture to speech to anger management.She wants to be prepared for whatever might come up." the source revealed.
