Oops! She wants it again: Britney’s bid to get dad out of her hair
Her bid to be freed from his 12-year guardianship boosts conspiracy theory that she's being kept prisoner
Britney Spears has asked a court to remove her father as the person who controls her business and personal affairs.
Jamie Spears was appointed to the role of conservator of her person, which gave him power over her major life decisions, in 2008. The move came after the pop star’s life spiralled out of control and she was admitted to hospital for psychiatric treatment.
Ahead of a court hearing in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the 38-year-old singer’s lawyer filed documents saying: “Britney is strongly opposed to having James (Spears) return as conservator of her person.”..
