Augist 20 2020- Britney Spears on Wednesday failed to remove her father from controlling her business and personal affairs after a Los Anhgels court made no immediate changes to her 12 year Court appointed conservatorship.
The pop star , now 39, had asked for her care manager to permanently replace her father Jamie as her conservator. But the closed door court hearing extended the current arrangments until February 2021, according to a court document posted online by fans. The authontcity of the document is not yet immediately verified.
Jamie Spears was appointed conservator in 2008 after the pop star was hospitalized for psychiatric treatment. The singer’s care manager Jodi Montgamorytook over in temporary capacity late last year when Jamie Spears suffered a bout of I’ll health.
A lawyer for the the singer had submitted documents ahead of the private hearing saying Spears was “strongly opposed ” to having her father return to control her affairs. The documents gave no reasons for her stance.
Spears revived her career after her breakdown but she pulled out of a las Vegas concert residency last year and briefly entered a mental health facility. She has not performed publicly since October 2018.
“I am here to support Brittney and I believe that she deserves her basic civil rights and to be able to spend her momory in her terms,” said Timothy , 26, who flew Minneapolis for the rally.
Spears has not publicly commented on the campaign but her father had dismissed it as a joke.
The American Civil Libration (ACLU) on Wednesday offered its support to Spears.
“If Brittney Spears want to regain her civil liberties and get out of her conservatorship, we are here to help her,” the SCLU wrote in a tweet.
