That dying gasp you just heard was the “Free Britney” movement breathing its last. TMZ reports that Britney Spears’ dad Jamie will stay in place as her
captor conservator for the foreseeable future as ruled by the judge in Wednesday’s hearing. Britney’s mom Lynne Spears lost her legal bid to take over the Britney wrangling.
To recap, in that court hearing on Wednesday that Brit didn’t show up for, Lynne supposedly accused her ex of doing a shitty job of handling Britney, 37, who’s reportedly been experiencing some mental health setbacks that began last spring (when the “Free Britney” movement was born).
The judge ruled that Jamie will still be running Britney’s business affairs. Daddy Spears has temporarily given up running the other part of the conservatorship, which includes Britney’s medical needs, to a case manager named Jodi Montgomery for the time being. Jamie will take that back in January.
The judge also ruled that all of the details from the hearing will remain sealed so we won’t know who said what about Britney’s frappes and what have you.
Jamie is saying that he’s stepped back from running the whole show due to his medical issues, but it could also have something to do with the restraining order that’s keeping him from having contact with Britney’s kids. That came about after Pop Pop allegedly put his hands on Britney’s 14-year-old son Sean Preston. As an aside, Britney Spears having a 14-year-old son makes me feel like my bones are quickly turning to dust with age. *frown*
Britney reportedly hasn’t been speaking with Jamie since even before he allegedly got physical with her kid. She’s reportedly still having a bad time mental health-wise.
Several sources say Britney is not doing well. As one source put it, “She goes through cycles, and hopefully we’re at the bottom now.”
In related news, Spears attended something called the Daytime Beauty Awards with her boyfriend Sam Asghari on Friday. In the video, an uncomfortable-looking Brit exits the red carpet with Sam, heading back to their car without even going inside. I don’t read lips but she must have said something to him at one point that translated to “get me the fuck out of here” because they MOTORED back to that car.
Ya can’t blame her. Who the fuck wants to go to some Hollywood bullshit and have 15 cameras in your face when everybody knows you’re a grown woman with parents fighting over their custody of you?
