Thoreen’s interview comes weeks after Los Angeles Supreme Court Justice Brenda Penny ruled that the Bessemer Trust Company, a California-based asset management and investment advisory firm, will continue to be co-curators with Jamie.
Objections raised by Thoreen to the co-conservatory delegation were dismissed, and her client Jamie’s objections to the language in a co-conservatory order filed by Britney’s court-appointed attorney Samuel D. Ingram III were also dismissed.
In September 2019, Jamie resigned as a permanent restorer after more than a decade for “personal health reasons”. At the end of 2018 he suffered a life-threatening hernia of the colon.
In a September 2020 announcement, Britney suggested the Bessemer Trust Company of California, NA, as a curator. “Britney is strongly against her father continuing to serve as sole curator of her estate. Without waiving her right to terminate this conservatory in the future, she strongly prefers to appoint a qualified trustee for that role,” the court documents said received by PEOPLE at the time.
