Jamie Spears says he “would do nothing better than to see that” daughter Britney Spears “doesn’t need a conservatory”.
The #FreeBritney movement continues to gain traction, which is enhanced by the buzzy Framing Britney Spears documentaryand Jamie – who serves as the co-curator of the pop star’s estate and was painted as the villain in the film – has done damage control. His attorney Vivian Lee Thoreen gave her second interview in days to defend him.
“”[Jamie] I would do nothing better than to see that Britney doesn’t need a conservatory, “Thoreen told CNN about the legal regime in place since the pop star’s collapse in 2008, which in extreme circumstances applies to people who are unable to stand by themselves to take care of yourself. ” or not, there is an end to the conservatory that really depends on Britney. If she wants to finish her conservatory, she can apply to finish it. “
Thoreen said, Jamie “isn’t suggesting that he is the perfect father or that he would receive a Father of the Year award. Like any parent, he doesn’t always see what Britney wants on an equal footing. But Jamie believes everyone. that he met was in their best interests. “

She claimed the decision to keep Britney in a conservatory was not in Jamie’s hands.
“The court investigator also interviews everyone involved with the conservatory and they take a deep dive to really study the conservatory and find out what’s going on,” she said. “And what I can tell you is that the court kept the conservatory in place every year.”
Since last year Britney has been trying – through her court-appointed attorney, Samuel Ingham III – to remove her father from his role. Ingham has said the star is “scared” of Jamie, hasn’t spoken to him since last summer, and refuses to work in showbiz until he’s gone. She asked Jodi Montgomery, who is currently in charge of the Conservatory over herself, to oversee everything. Jamie has a co-curator, currently Bessemer Trust, a finance firm that oversees the operations of Britney’s $ 60 million estate.
Thoreen said Jamie doesn’t mind working with the newly appointed Bessemer Trust to manage his daughter’s money. However, she added, “At the last hearing it was reported that Jamie was trying to gain more power than his co-curator and that is completely inaccurate. We argued that Jamie and his co-curator should have equal power . “
Thoreen also addressed the current estrangement between father and daughter, who have not spoken since the summer.
“Jamie undoubtedly loves Britney and he misses her very much,” she said. “But he also respects her and he wants to give her autonomy and space. And as I said, like any other family, there are ups and downs. So Jamie respects Britney’s space, and he’s also respectful Britney knows that she is her father at all times and that he will be there for her. Whether there is a conservatory or not, Jamie will love Britney. “
Yahoo Entertainment recently spoke to a California-based family law attorney, Christopher C. Melcher of Walzer Melcher, about exactly what it takes to get Britney out of her conservatory. He said she had to petition the court and then claim that she was able to fend for herself. They would have to show consistent behavior that shows that they can successfully meet their daily needs (food, housing and health) and provide for themselves financially. She would also need to demonstrate that she has a support system in place in case she ran into problems.
This petition to terminate the restorer could be submitted “at any time” by her lawyer, said Melcher, who does not represent the star. “If she doesn’t ask, she won’t get it,” he said, which means she didn’t initiate the process. Otherwise, while making it clear that she wants her father out, she’s demonstrating that she’s okay with the Conservatory for whatever reason – until she asks to end it.
There are monthly hearings in the case of the Conservatory and the next one is scheduled for March 17th. It’s an accounting hearing, so their financials are being reviewed – and for the first time since the Bessemer Trust started in its role.
A hearing on the petition is scheduled for April 27 the following month.
Britney’s attorney does not comment on ongoing cases and Britney has remained the mother of the subject except that he apparently alluded to it on social media. One of her last posts referred to “the craziness of the past year” and urged people to be “kind”. She also said that people don’t know the full story and right now she’s enjoying being a “normal” person and enjoying time with her two sons and boyfriend Sam Asghari who said he wasn’t a fan of Jamie.
