Britney Spears’s reinvention of teen pop led to her being dubbed the Princess of Pop. Britney released two of the all-time best-selling records when she was 17 and 18. She was by far the most popular young performer at the time.
Spears’ hits were rocked by people of all ages, but she alienated the young teen fanbase by embracing mature and explicit topics. Blackout, her most well-regarded album, was released when Britney Spears was going through a difficult time personally.
Due to Britney’s downward trajectory, the court had no choice but to place her under Jamie Spears, her father, as conservator. The content of this article will examine Britney’s troubled relationship with her father.
Jamie Spears states that he’ll step down as conservator but will resist attempts to force him out
Britney has been open about wanting to end the conservatorship agreement that gives Jamie control over her financial decisions. Before he resigned as Britney’s conservator in 2019, Jamie was in charge of both her person and her finances.
Spears has made damning claims in court about her father’s financial influence on her. Britney stated in court,
“I’m here to get rid of my dad and accuse him of abusing the conservatorship.”
“My dad had me in great fear.”
“They constantly attempted to give the impression that I was insane, which I am not. They may have intended to kill me, I believe. Jamie Spears was asked to be removed from office and suspended in a motion submitted by Britney’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart.
When asked to comment, Jamie said he will do so “when the time is appropriate.” According to a document filed by his attorney, Jamie doesn’t think that Britney would benefit from a public fight with her.
To plan for an orderly transition to a new conservator, Mr. Spears expects to cooperate with the court and his daughter’s new lawyer, according to the document.
According to Matthew Rosengart, who praised the filing, it was “a big victory for Britney Spears and another step toward justice.” Mathew, though, changed his tone and charged Jamie with attempting to blackmail Britney in a recent supplemental court filing.
According to the document, Jamie has requested a $2 million payout in exchange for his resignation.
Britney Spears will not be blackmailed, according to Rosengart’s filing.
“The sole issue before the court—which, regrettably, has remained unresolved for years—is whether Mr. Spears’ swift suspension and removal are in Britney Spears’ best interests. The answer is definitely yes.
On September 29, 2021, the court will address Rosengart’s filings.
Britney Spears hates how her father affects her
Britney Spears was placed under conservatorship by a Californian court in 2008. Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet were chosen by the court to serve as Britney’s conservators. Under the conservatorship, Britney was unable to make decisions regarding her personal or financial affairs without her father’s approval.
“My father was hospitalized a few months ago and came very close to passing away. Although we are all incredibly grateful that he survived, he still has a long path ahead of him. At this time, I had to make the challenging decision to devote all of my attention and resources to my family.
Before he got better, Jamie asked to be temporarily replaced as Britney’s conservator in September 2019. Jamie was reappointed as Britney’s conservator in January 2020. Us Weekly said in March 2020 that Britney had grown bitter toward her father. According to the outlet, a source said:
Britney has stated that she doesn’t want to work once more because she doesn’t want to keep herself essentially under the conservatorship. For managing her funds, Britney’s dad receives a monthly allowance of about $10,000, which she finds unfair.
A judge mandated in early May that Britney’s conservatorship last through the end of August. Recently, there has been increased public attention on Britney’s mental health. In early July 2020, some of her Instagram fans voiced their concerns after she shared an unexpected video on her profile.
Britney Spears’s father has a Rocky relationship
Sean Federline, the grandchild of Britney’s ex-husband Kevin Federline, who is also the father of their two sons, was allegedly violently abused by Jamie Spears in September 2019. Sean allegedly had a shakedown from Jamie during one of Sean’s visits to Jamie’s home, according to Kevin.
After analyzing the evidence, the Ventura County District Attorney’s office decided not to prosecute Jamie. Jamie’s connection with Britney and his grandchildren, however, was strained as a result of the incident. In addition, Kevin issued a restraining order against Jamie, barring him for three years from seeing his grandsons.
During an Instagram live session that was posted at the beginning of May 2020, Jamie’s other grandson, Jayden, showed his contempt towards Jamie. He indicated that Britney might “leave” music and used derogatory language to describe his granddad. Says Jayden
“I distinctly recall asking her once, “What happened to your music?,” to which she replied, “I don’t know, honey. I’m considering quitting. I ask, “What? Who are you speaking to? Do you have any idea how much money you make off of that stuff, like?”
