Jamie Spears has agreed to step down from his long-running role as guardian of his daughter Britney. This was announced by the legal team Jimmy Spears, as reported by several American media, including »The New York Times«,»diverse” And “TMZ«.
It is a victory for the 39-year-old singer, who has been fighting for self-determination for a long time. Britney Spears has been under the tutelage of her father since 2008 after she broke down mentally due to personal and professional issues. At first, Jamie Spears managed his daughter’s fortune and personal affairs. In 2019 he resigned, but remained in charge of finances. Co-custodian Jodi Montgomery is responsible for the singer’s personal concerns, including medical concerns.
“We are pleased that Mr. Spears and his attorneys today issued a statement that he should be removed,” said Britney Spears’ attorney, Matthew Rosengart.
Only in early July the court rejected Britney Spears’ request to replace her father. Tried again – with a new lawyer. A hearing in the case was scheduled for late September in Los Angeles.
Mrs. Spears was saved from disaster.
Lawyers for Jamie Spears, according to media reports, said that there are no grounds for removing Jamie Spears from the position of trustee, “but he does not believe that a public disagreement with his daughter over his continued service as a trustee is in the best interests.” The 69-year-old is also said to want to work with the court and his daughter’s new lawyer “to prepare for an orderly transition to a new guardian”.
The possible timeline for this is not mentioned in the announcement. Instead, Jimmy Spears is said to be a relentless target of unprovoked attacks. In doing so, he would have “saved Ms. Spears from disaster, supported her when she needed it most, saved her and her reputation from harm and fostered the revival of her career”.
