Britney Spears’s dad, Jamie Spears, will continue to be her conservator after a
court hearing with her mom, Lynne Spears, on Wednesday, September 18, Us Weekly
can confirm.

The hearing, which Britney, 37, didn’t attend, was to reevaluate Jamie’s status
as her conservator, a role he’s had since 2008. Though Jamie stepped down as
Britney’s conservator earlier this month and was replaced by the “Toxic”
singer’s current care manager, Jodi Montgomery, the 67-year-old was expected to
resume his duties when Montgomery’s temporary conservatorship ends in January
2020.

At the hearing, Jamie stood in front of the judge with his attorneys and
Montgomery. On the other side of the room was Lynne, 64, who was accompanied by
her and Britney’s lawyer, Sam Ingham. The judge granted a motion to seal
transcripts and documents from the hearing because they may contain proprietary
information and sensitive medical and family details about Britney, her parents
and her two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline. According to the court
documents obtained by Us, Jamie was ordered to send payments to Montgomery,
which signals that he’s still in charge of Britney’s finances.

A source tells Us exclusively that Britney wanted her father to be removed
“immediately” as the conservator of her estate, which is valued at more than
$100 million. Lynne, who doesn’t want the job, “feels it’s in Britney’s best
interests” if the conservator is a “neutral third party,” according to the
insider.

“Jamie isn’t opposed to being removed as conservator of Britney as the person,
but will fight any attempt to remove him as conservator of her estate,” a second
source tells Us. “Britney’s finances were in shambles before Jamie took over.
She was approaching bankruptcy in 2007.”

Earlier this month, Jamie asked a judge to “temporarily relinquish the powers of
conservatorship,” according to court documents obtained by Us. Jamie, who was
hospitalized in November 2018 after suffering a ruptured colon, cited “personal
health reasons” for his decision.

As temporary conservator, Montgomery will have the same powers granted to Jamie,
which include access to the Grammy winner’s medical records and the ability to
limit and restrict visitors for her. Montgomery will also be able to prosecute
restraining orders on Britney’s behalf, as well as retain caretakers and
security guards on a “24 hour/7 day basis.”

Nothing explains why Britney wants her dad removed as conservator. He
seems do be doing her a lot of good for her according to this report.
