Daily US Times: On Wednesday, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge denied a motion to remove singer Britney Spears’ father from his role as a conservator of his daughter’s $60 million estate, making official a November request to allow a trust to act as co-conservator of her estate.
While the decision came just one week after Spears’ bombshell testimony about Jamie Spears’ role as conservator, Judge Brenda Penny’s ruling was not a result of that hearing. The ruling was instead made on a request from November in which the singer’s attorney filed to add Bessemer Trust to serve as co-conservator alongside her father.
The court filing states: “The conservator’s request to suspend James P. Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company of California as sole conservator of estate is denied without prejudice.”
US media reported on Tuesday that two sources close to Britney Spears’ said her attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, is planning to file a petition to terminate the nearly 13-year conservatorship.
CNN reported citing one source: “Britney has spoken to Sam multiple times since last week and she has asked him point-blank, once again, to file the paperwork to end this.”
Jamie Spears’ attorneys submitted a pair of filings on Wednesday, one of which asked the judge to launch an investigation into the claims made by Britney Spears last week, when she alleged she was forced to perform and take medication against her will.
