Britney Spears’ dad Jamie ‘no longer her conservator’ for first time in 10 years
Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears has reportedly stepped down as her conservator just days after claims there’s a restraining order against him from her children.
Jamie, 67, has managed the Toxic singer’s financial affairs and wellbeing since 2008 when she received a psychiatric evaluation.
However, People now reports that a judge has granted Jamie’s request to relinquish his powers to Britney’s longtime ‘care manager’ Jodi Montgomery temporarily.
Legal papers filed at a Los Angeles court on Monday allegedly state: ‘[Montgomery] shall have the power to communicate with treating and other expert medical personnel regarding [Britney], and to have access to any and all records regarding [Britney’s] medical treatment, diagnosis and testing.
‘[Montgomery] shall have access to any and all records regarding [Britney’s] psychiatric treatment, diagnosis and testing.’
Britney’s lawyers were reportedly present for the court hearing this afternoon, as well as her mother Lynne Spears, and lawyers for her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
It was previously reported that Kevin filed for a restraining order against Jamie on behalf of the two sons he shares with Britney – Sean, 13, and Jayden, 12, following a ‘physical altercation’.
According to TMZ, Kevin had accused Jamie of ‘breaking down a door and grabbing’ Sean during a heated incident. Although ‘no visible bruises or injuries’ were found on Sean, the boys were granted the restraining order.
In another bizarre twist in the case, Britney’s doctor died suddenly in August just weeks before a report relating to whether the singer was receiving appropriate treatment, was filed.
Dr Timothy Benson died on 24 August at the age of 48, and is suspected to have suffered an aneurysm.
Benson had reportedly spent three months determining if Britney, 37, had received adequate medical attention during her conservatorship.
