After an overhaul of his legal team, Jamie Spears is now asking a California court for an immediate and “unconditional” end to Britney Spears’ conservatorship – “not tomorrow or next week, now.”
In a filing on Monday (Nov. 2), Jamie asked the judge overseeing the case to end the conservatorship without “any caveat” and said he would hand over all documents related to the 13-year arrangement because he has “nothing to hide.”
The filing was written by Alex M. Weingarten, an attorney at the firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher who replaced Jamie’s longtime lawyer last month.
“Jamie unconditionally loves and supports his daughter. Full stop,” Weingarten wrote. “As he has done for her entire life, Jamie will do everything he can to protect and care for her. For the last 13 years, that included serving as her conservator. Now, it means ending her conservatorship.”
The filing is not quite as dramatic as it seems. Jamie has already been suspended as Britney’s conservator, and has already asked to end the conservatorship. A hearing is scheduled for Nov. 12, where it is expected that L.A. County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny will do so.
But it had previously been unclear the extent to which Jamie would leave unconditionally, including whether he seek stipulations or compensation, or whether he would seek to avoid turning over records to Britney’s attorney Mathew Rosengart – a former federal prosecutor who has vowed to investigate potential misconduct.
In the new filing, the elder Spears made clear that his support for ending the conservatorship was not “subject to a demand for releases or compensation” and that he would “unconditionally cooperate in transferring all files.”
“Jamie believes that every aspect of the conservatorship should be made available for public examination – not the targeted leaks and misinformation that have resulted in such tabloid fodder,” Weingarten wrote. “The time for innuendo, misrepresentations and impudent gossip is over.”
Britney Spears was placed in the conservatorship, under control of her father, in 2008 following a string of erratic behavior and public incidents. But the arrangement began to be scrutinized in 2019, leading to high-profile investigative documentaries and a #FreeBritney movement among fans.
On Sept. 29, after months of increasing tension, Judge Penny temporarily suspended Jamie as conservator of his daughter’s estate. A hearing to terminate the conservatorship entirely is set for next Friday (Nov. 12).
But that is unlikely to be the end of the legal battle.
Britney’s attorney, Rosengart, of Greenberg Traurig, has made serious allegations of wrongdoing by Jamie, echoing claims made by documentaries and other critics. He has vowed a “top-to-bottom” examination of his behavior and records, and has even hinted that the case could bring a “hard look” from law enforcement. Jamie and his attorneys have denied all such accusations.
Rosengart declined to comment Tuesday evening on Jamie’s new filing.
