Jamie Spears will no longer be the legal guardian of his daughter, Britney Spears, thus ending the legal battle waged by the pop star months ago.
A judge in Los Angeles, California, suspended Jamie Spear on Wednesday as supervisor of the artist’s estate, estimated at US $ 60 million, and appointed a temporary replacement until December 31.
The 39-year-old singer had been trying for months to get her father to stop having anything to do with her affairs, which she had been in charge of since 2008.
Spears remains under the tutelage of a personal guardian, Jodi Montgomery, quyen is responsible from itss business personal and medical. It has never been revealed what mental problem the singer has that prevents her from taking care of her own affairs.
In June, in court, the singer excitedly demanded the end of the guardianship ordered by a judge 13 years ago, since she considered it abusive and humiliating, and accused his father of having ruined his life.
Britney Spears has not performed since 2018 and said she will not return to the stage as long as her father continues to control her career.
A new accountant
At Wednesday’s court hearing, Judge Brenda Penny formally ended the star’s guardianship with her father, but left a separate guardianship with an accountant chosen by Spears’s legal team.
The singer’s father had argued that this accountant, John Zabel, was not qualified to oversee the singer’s fortune.
The judge ruled that the singer’s care should be turned over to Mr. Zabel “immediately.”
The singer’s lawyers also requested that a new hearing be held in the next 30 to 45 days to decide whether to completely end Spears’ guardianship.
