According to new court documents filed, Britney Spears has requested that her father, Jamie Spears, be removed as her sole conservator. Jamie Spears was put in charge of his daughter’s welfare and finances in 2008. He relinquished some control last year as he battled ill health, and Britney’s longtime caregiver, Jodi Montgomery, took over as temporary conservator.
Now Britney’s court-appointed attorney has filed new documents requesting Montgomery’s role be made permanent, explaining the singer ‘strongly prefers’ to keep her on board.
Reports state that “Britney is strongly opposed to having [Jamie] return as conservator of her person,” which is a role he’s been in since the conservatorship was put into place in 2008. Instead, the star apparently “strongly prefers” that her care manager and temporary conservator Jodi Montgomery — who stepped in for Jamie in the wake of his ongoing health issues — continues acting as her conservator of her person “as [she] has done for nearly a year.” Another hearing about the conservatorship is set to take place on Wednesday.
