Britney Spears’ attorney filed a petition this week to have Jodi Montgomery officially replace the pop star’s father, Jamie Spears, as the permanent conservator over the singer’s personal matters, Page Six can confirm.
The court documents were filed by Sam Ingham III on Wednesday, and will be reviewed in an upcoming April 27 hearing.
Montgomery, who is Britney’s care manager, has been the “Toxic” singer’s conservator since 2019 when she temporarily replaced Jamie while he recuperated from health issues. A judge recently extended Montgomery’s temporary role until September 2021.
However, Jamie remains the co-conservator over her estate alongside Bessemer Trust.
In November, Ingham hinted that Britney did not want Jamie, 68, to oversee her personal matters anymore since she was allegedly “afraid” of her dad. Jamie’s attorney, Vivian Lee Thoreen, has vehemently denied these allegations.
This new filing is the first official attempt to have Jamie lose some of the control in the conservatorship, which has been in place since 2008 following the singer’s public breakdown.
According to TMZ, the conservator of the person has the power to limit visitors, retain caretakers and security guards, prosecute civil harassment restraining orders and communicate with medical personnel with respect to any treatment for Britney.
Jamie previously blasted supporters of the #FreeBritney movement who believe he doesn’t have his daughter’s best interest at heart, telling Page Six, “It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.”
He added, “I love my daughter. I love all my kids. But this is our business. It’s private.”
While Jamie’s role as conservator of the person is still being disputed, part of his job as co-conservator of her estate includes overseeing her finances.
