Britney Spears’ doctors ‘want dad Jamie removed as conservator

Britney Spears’ medical team is reportedly in favour of removing her father as conservator of her estate.

The 39-year-old popstar has ramped up her mission to have her dad Jamie Spears, 69, removed as her co-conservator after 13 years, hiring a new lawyer and asking for Jamie to be replaced by accountant Jason Rubin.

A new filing from Jodi Montgomery, the conservator of Britney’s person since 2019, backs her attorney Mathew Rosengart’s filing to have Jamie removed as conservator, saying ‘his doing so is not in the best interest of’ his daughter.

The filing further notes that Montgomery claims Britney’s ‘medical team agrees that it is not in the best interest of the Conservatee for Mr. Spears to remain Conservator’.

This could be a major development in Britney’s case, as the court will likely take any claim that Jamie is causing harm to the case seriously.

Montgomery also agrees with the potential appointment of CPA Jason Rubin to manage Britney’s finances, after Rosengart filed that and Britney selected Rubin to replace her father, should he be removed or suspended from the conservatorship.

Britney reportedly asked Montgomery to stay on as her co-conservator.

Previously Britney’s care manager, Montgomery joined as conservator of Britney’s person in 2019, when Jamie stepped down due to poor health.

However, Jamie remained in charge of his daughter’s finances.

The #FreeBritney movement has stepped up in recent months since the Circus singer spoke directly to the court in June, claiming that she was unable to remove her IUD or marry her boyfriend Sam Asghari under the conservatorship, and likened the situation to abuse.

Britney has since said that she wants her father charged with ‘conservatorship abuse’.

The star is hoping to have all restrictions lifted and to regain control over her personal and financial decisions by having the conservatorship removed without medical assessment.

In recent weeks, Britney’s former lawyer Samuel Ingham III has stepped down from the case, while the Bessemer Trust withdrew as co-conservators of the star’s finances. 

The mother-of-two has lived under the conservatorship since 2008, when she was hospitalised following a breakdown. 

Since her bombshell court testimony, Britney has been speaking out on Instagram about the case, and criticised her younger sister Jamie Lynn and other members of her support system for ‘hurting her’.
