We all know that when it comes to her conservatorship, Britney Spears would really, really, REALLY like it if her father, Jamie Spears, left her alone and stayed out of her business. As it turns out, Jamie Spears also likely has a Spears in his life that he wishes would back off and mind their own business when it comes to Britney’s conservatorship, and that’s his ex-wife Lynne Spears, who he claims has been sticking her nose in Britney’s coins and doing some unsolicited accounting.
The #FreeBritney movement’s motives and goals are simple: they literally just want to hashtag-free Britney Spears from her nearly 13-year-long conservatorship. Specifically, to free Britney from the control of her father, Jamie Spears. Britney herself has made it very clear that her wish would be for either her father to step away from her business, or at least be made to work with a third party to prevent him from executing any shady business moves. Britney’s backup wish was granted last month when a judge decided that Jamie would have to co-conserve with Bessemer Trust. Still, anyone familiar with the #FreeBritney movement, or those who watched Framing Britney Spears, probably think it would be in Britney’s best interest to just do away with the whole conservatorship thing altogether. Guess what? Jamie Spears claims that he’s totally right there with all of you, and also absolutely, sincerely wishes that Britney was free. Hmmm…where’s that Hot Dog Guy meme when you need it.
Jamie Spears Lost His Bid To Regain Control Of Britney’s Financials, But Will Remain Her Co-Conservator
Yesterday, lawyers for Britney Spears and her father Jamie Spears met in court for a hearing to discuss the future of her nearly 13-year-long conservatorship. And what we knew is that Jamie Spears wanted to return as the head dad in charge of her life while bringing back his friend Andrew Wallet to help manage her money and that Britney really didn’t want her dad involved in her life or money decisions in any way. Anyone who has watched the New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears (or anyone who has seen even a little bit of chatter about it online) was likely hoping for a triumphant ending to her conservatorship saga. Like that Britney would throw open the doors to the courthouse, do a double-rotation spin, a signature head-cock to the left side, and announce that she was finally free while her lawyer blasted “Stronger” on a Bluetooth speaker behind her. That sadly didn’t happen. But the good news is, her father didn’t win either. Generally, her conservatorship situation will stay the same.
Despite What “Framing Britney Spears” Would Lead You To Believe, Jamie Spears Swears He Would Never Exploit His Daughter
I have yet to watch the new New York Times/FX documentary Framing Britney Spears because while I’m not a hardcore member of the #FreeBritney movement, I am a person who often looks at Britney Spears’ daddy-slash-conservator Jamie Spears with very suspicious eyes. I’ve got to listen to “Stronger” a couple more times to sike myself up for my first viewing. But by all accounts from people who have seen it, Jamie Spears doesn’t exactly come across as one of the good guys in Framing Britney Spears. Shocking, I know! Jamie must have felt the energy of judgemental eyes upon him when the documentary was released last Friday. Some conveniently-timed sources are speaking out and saying that Jamie would never exploit his daughter as her long-time conservator.
Britney Spears has recently made the claim that she’s the happiest she’s ever been in her life, but as it turns out there’s just one element of her life that is preventing her from reaching top-shelf joy. And that’s her dad Jamie Spears staying on as her co-conservator. We’re learning that Britney doesn’t just want Jamie to have limited access to her conservatorship decisions. She might actually want him completely removed from her conservatorship altogether.
To say that Britney Spears has been going through it the past couple of years would be an understatement. Because let’s face it, fighting with your dad is one thing. But make the fight a public one, add lawyers into it, and times it by the fact that you’re Britney Spears, and you’ve got a capital-D difficult situation. People get worried for Britney Spears, but yesterday, she posted an Instagram video assuring everyone that she’s all good.
