After Britney Spears publicly witnessed a personal crisis back in 2008, her father Jamie and his lawyer were then named as defenders over the pop singer’s estate. At the time, she had earned herself a $ 60 million empire, and months after her father declared her keeper, she returned to work.
Spears ’father temporarily resigned from his post in 2019 with some rumors claiming it was due to health issues and others accusing him of having a change with her son. His co-keeper had resigned months earlier.
according to Vulture, Jodi Montgomery was then legally assigned to take over Jamie ‘s duties and following another court hearing in August 2020, he was asked to remain in that position until February 2021.
Meanwhile, both Spears’ parents are waiting to take part in her custody, and it puts more pressure on her relationship with her father.
Britney Spears submitted papers trying to remove her father permanently
In August, Spears’ lawyers filed documents seeking to prevent her father from resuming his role as custodian. At a court hearing in November, her lawyers said she is afraid of her father and will refuse to act unless he is out of the picture when it comes to financial matters.
