The controversial deal, deemed “offensive” by the pop princess, was enacted in 2008 after Britney attacked a photographer at a gas station, handing Jamie Spears financial and personal control of the singer.
The decision comes after a hearing in Los Angeles, in which a judge ordered the suspension of custody of Jamie Spears over his daughter, who has long opposed her father’s control.
according to guardianJudge Brenda Penny ordered the guardianship to be suspended immediately, arguing that the “current situation is unsustainable” and that it creates a “toxic environment” for the family.
But this does not mean that the guardianship system under Spears is over. The judge has ordered an official accountant to be the temporary guardian, although Britney Spears’ attorney, Matthew Rosengart, has requested that the system be terminated within a period of 30 to 45 years. Days for the welfare of the singer.
“These tutoring can and should be closed and terminated immediately – preferably this fall,” he said. “Britney Spears deserves her father leaving her life as a teacher.”
In February, Britney Spears’ life returned to the public scene with the release of the documentary “Framing Britney Spears”, which focused on the history of the American singer, including her most popular moments and events. It is controlled by the father.
Months later, the singer filed an injunction to end tutoring that has been going on since 2008. The request was made during a hearing in Los Angeles (California), 13 years after giving Spears tutoring that she deemed “abusive.”
“This mentorship is doing me more harm than good. I deserve to have a life,” the American singer said, during a long and emotional phone call.
After the documentary, movements went viral to demand that the artist be “liberated” from her father’s control (“#FreeBritney”) and to have her critics and judges apologize.
However, last Friday the New York Times released a new documentary, which explains in more detail what was happening in Spears’ life.
The film, titled Taking Control of Britney Spears, reveals that Jimmy Spears has installed hidden surveillance equipment in Britney’s bedroom to listen in on their conversations.
“It really reminds me of someone in prison,” a former employee of a security company told the documentary’s authors.
This week, the singer’s lawyers said the documentary exposes a “horrific and unimaginable violation of her adult daughter’s privacy” by Jamie Spears, who has denied the illegal surveillance.
Another documentary, Netflix’s “Britney v. Spears,” released Tuesday, notes that Britney twice tried to hire her own lawyer at the start of the guard, but was denied.
The singer was finally able to name Rosengart as her lawyer in July, and in August her father filed a petition to end the singer’s tenure. And although he admitted that his daughter “believes she can take care of her own affairs,” he remained her guardian.
The courtroom for Wednesday’s session was full. Fans of the singer arrived hours earlier to get a seat. Outside the courtroom, another group of fans of the artist blocked a street to demand Jamie’s arrest and the “release” of Britney.
In a petition this week, Britney’s lawyers accused Jamie Spears of trying to delay the end of The Guardian for her own financial interests. Their efforts are a “planned excuse to avoid the stigma of suspension and its consequences,” the document said.
On the 22nd of this month, Britney asked the judge to end her guardianship so that she could marry Sam Asgari, by prenuptial agreement. Spears and Asghari met in 2016 when they premiered the music video for their single “Spittle Party”.
The singer has two children with her ex-husband, rapper Kevin Federline, and was married briefly in Las Vegas to childhood friend Jason Alexander. This union was canceled after only 55 hours.
Britney Spears officially appeared in 1999 when she edited the album “…Baby One More Time”, which has sold more than one hundred million copies worldwide.
