Court ends Britney Spears’ father control of her life after 13 years

1 Mins read

A judge on Wednesday removed Britney Spears’ father from her conservatorship, releasing the pop star from the power he had over her life for more than 13 years.

During a highly anticipated hearing that came as Spears and her attorney continue to criticize her dad’s handling of her affairs, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny granted the 39-year-old singer’s request to immediately suspend Jamie Spears as conservator of her estate, a role he has filled since the conservatorship’s creation in early 2008.

Penny appointed John Zabel, a certified public accountant nominated by Britney Spears, to oversee her finances on a temporary basis.

The step marks a pivotal moment in Spears’ quest to break free of the court-mandated arrangement that gave her father and a cast of lawyers the reins to her personal affairs, business deals, and fortune.

“Britney Spears deserves to wake up tomorrow without her father as her conservator,” her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, argued in court on Wednesday.
