Lynne Spears Has Spoken About Jamie Spears Agreeing To Eventually Step Down As Britney’s Conservator
Christmas, Hannukah, New Year’s, Halloween, Arbor Day, Toyotathon, and every other calendar-year celebration came early for Britney Spears and the #FreeBritney movement when Britney’s father-slash-money manager-slash-alleged abusive puppetmaster Jamie Spears said he is “willing” to step down as her conservator after 13 years. That will be discussed at a hearing on September 29th. And Britney’s mom Lynne Spears gave her quick response to Jamie teasing his exit.
Depending on who you ask, you’ll get mixed vibes regarding Lynne’s choice to pipe up and offer her thoughts. Jamie has continued to imply that Lynne has been MIA from Britney’s life for the past decade and that she’s guilty of “meddling.” Others might see a mother supporting her daughter. Lynne has attempted to take an active role in Britney’s conservatorship battle and mental health situation over the past few years. Most recently, she filed documents asking the court to allow Britney to choose her own lawyer (which the court did) and was revealed to be a part of recent filings to have Jamie removed as conservator. So naturally, this recent development with Jamie surely has Lynne in a good mood. After the news broke of Jamie’s departure, Lynne’s lawyer released the following statement on her behalf to Us Weekly:
“Lynne Spears is pleased Jamie has agreed to step down. Lynne entered into this conservatorship to protect her daughter almost three years ago. She has accomplished what she set out to do. She will have no further comment.”
During Britney’s June 23rd court statement, she claimed she wanted to sue her family for what they’ve put her through. She never specifically named which relatives she’d be listing in that lawsuit. Safe to assume Jamie Spears would be the first name, and her little sister Jamie Lynn Spears would get a very special shout-out. But maybe Lynne Spears would be spared, especially since she’s been very supportive over the past couple of years. But, Lynne did have dollar signs in her eyes when she released a memoir titled Through The Storm, at the height of Britney’s bad time in 2008. And, Lynne has been known to recruit her other famous daughter to help her shill her MLM skincare line.
As for if Britney is ready to bring Lynne back to her inner circle, she and her new lawyer Mathew Rosengart should put Lynne through a series of tests first, to see if Lynne really has her best interests at heart. Although they’ll have to get creative with those tests. We haven’t heard anything about Lynne physically fighting with her daughter’s kids, so already she’s arguably the better parental influence from a “Lowest Expectations Possible” standpoint.
