Britney Spears expects conservatorship to end ‘completely’ this fall

Pop star Britney Spears’s lawyer says her conservatorship should end “completely” this fall after a long legal battle has captured national attention. 

Attorney Mathew Rosengart said in a court filing Wednesday that Spears wants the conservatorship “completely and inevitably” done with, but that the first step is removing her father as conservator, Variety reported.

Rosengart wants the judge to take Jamie Spears, who has agreed to step down from the role, off the conservatorship by Sept. 29, saying that the broken relationship between the “Womanizer” singer and her father will create difficulties in establishing a prenuptial agreement between Britney Spears and her fiancee. 

The conservator has to be involved in the prenuptial agreement since they have control of Spears’s finances. 

Rosengart wants a “temporary, short-term” conservator assigned until the conservatorship can be dissolved so negotiations for the agreement can continue. 

He then asked for a hearing to end the conservatorship completely as soon as the court can set one up, according to Variety. 

Jamie Spears filed to end the conservatorship in early September, saying in the petition that “recent events related to this conservatorship have called into question whether circumstances have changed to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist.”

The conservatorship made headlines in June after Spears alleged it “is abusive,” telling a judge she doesn’t feel like she “can live a full life.” 

“I would like to progressively move forward, and I want to have the real deal. I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” Spears said. “I was told right now on the conservatorship I’m not able to get married or have a baby.”

“I wanted to take the [IUD] out so I could start trying to have another baby, but this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have any more children,” she added. “So basically this conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life. I’ve worked my whole life.”

Jaime Spears, however, has insisted that he has done nothing wrong. 

“There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate under Probate Code section 2650. And it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears’ best interests,” Jamie Spears’s lawyers said in a filing last month, before stating that he agreed to step down.
