  A new hearing in Britney Spears' conservatorship case will determine if her dad remains in charge of her estate. See all the latest legal filings and updates here. Britney Spears' conservatorship, which began in 2008, stripped the singer of legal control over her estate and assets. Here's what we know so far.Back in June 2021, Spears asked the court to end the court-enforced legal arrangement, typically enacted for those incapable of making their own decisions.

Britney Spears deserves to have her father out of her life as a conservator , today,” Rosengart said. The decision comes three months after the pop star first publicly pleaded for her father to be removed, alleging that he had been abusive and saying: “He loved the control to hurt his own daughter.” Jamie Spears has aggressively fought efforts to be removed and recently requested that the conservatorship be terminated entirely – a move that Britney Spears ’s lawyer said was an effort “to avoid accountability and justice”.

Britney Spears ' father , Jamie Spears , filed a petition on Tuesday to end his daughter's conservatorship , after controlling her estate for 13 years. The petition was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, with Jamie Spears stating that Britney Spears , 39, is "entitled to have this court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required." He added that her circumstances have changed "to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist."

Weingarten adds that Jamie's request is "unconditional" and he "does not make this request subject to a demand for releases or compensation."

"Jamie unconditionally loves and supports his daughter. Full stop. As he has done for her entire life, Jamie will do everything he can to protect and care for her," Weingarten writes. "For the last 13 years, that included serving as her Conservator. Now, it means ending her Conservatorship."

Jamie's request comes just days after the pop star's attorney Mathew Rosengart claimed in documents filed on Oct. 28 that Jamie had ulterior motives for unexpectedly reversing his position on Britney's conservatorship two months ago after years of insisting that it was necessary.

Two weeks before Jamie filed a petition on Sept. 7 to terminate Britney's 13-year long conservatorship, he had received discovery requests from Rosengart seeking information about the role of the estate's former business manager, Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group, according to the documents.
