Britney Spears 'won't ask the judge to end conservatorship' but wants dad Jamie out as the 'two don't speak anymore'
BRITNEY Spears "won't ask the judge to end her conservatorship" but wants her dad Jamie out as the "two don't speak anymore."
Most recently, her father claimed that the singer had "dementia" as he battles to keep control over her life.
Sources close to the situation revealed to TMZ that, actually, Britney doesn't feel trapped in her 13-year-old conservatorship.
"She has 99 percent of the freedom she'd have if she weren't in a conservatorship, and the only thing she's prevented from doing are crazy things, like buying 3 cars at a time [something she tried to do back in the day]," the source told the outlet.
The source further revealed the 39-year-old often travels to Hawaii and lives her life without restrictions in Los Angeles.
TMZ further claimed that the mother of two knew "her life was out of control before the conservatorship was put in place," helping her create structure and earn her more money.
"She's taken care of and she knows it," the source added.
However, the issue for the singer is her father, 68, being in charge as they don't have any type of communication.
Britney is also allegedly "angry" at her father over some business issues and some people that he chose for her team.
According to the outlet, Britney feels "they were motivated not by her self-interest but theirs."
The performer also said that she would not set foot on a stage until her father steps away from his role as conservator.
A week ago, a bombshell TV documentary revealed that Jamie claimed she has dementia and put the condition on forms that he used to justify having control over her finances.
Last month, Britney asked a judge to permanently end Jamie's control over her $60m fortune and personal life.
The singer's attorney filed for Jodi Montgomery to officially replace Jamie as the permanent conservator over Britney's personal matters.
She also asked her estranged father to resign from his role overseeing her personal life.
Additionally, the legal documents stated that Britney reserves the right to eventually request an end to the conservatorship completely.
Under the terms of the long-running conservatorship, the Toxic singer isn't allowed to drive, go out by herself or make any significant personal or financial decisions.
While sources have said Britney's life "would drastically change for the better" if Jamie is removed, the father's lawyer Vivian Thoreen previously claimed the conservatorship "saved" the singer's life.
"I understand that every story needs a villain," the attorney previously said. "But people have it so wrong here."
"This is a story about a fiercely loving, dedicated and loyal father who rescued his daughter from a life threatening situation."
She told Good Morning America's Amy Robach: "People were harming her and they were exploiting her. Jamie saved Britney's life."
Britney is not the only member of her family that's angry with Jamie, as her mother Lynne recently objected to the "excessive" $890,000 attorney fees he was requesting in Britney's conservatorship case.
Jamie's law firm Holland & Knight hit back at Lynne in court documents obtained by People this week, writing: "While the Conservator and his counsel have been very cautious, limited, and thoughtful in dealing with the media (a far cry from any 'national media tour').
"Lynne Spears is the one who exploited her daughter's pain and trauma for personal profit by publishing a book about the Conservatee."
Britney's mother previously talked about the singer's public 2007 meltdown – in which she shaved her head and attacked photographers – in her book Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.
Earlier in April, Lynne took issue with the almost $900,000 her ex spent with H&K – which was racked up while Britney attempted to remove him as co-conservator of her estate.
She claimed they are "utterly excessive" and "serve no benefit" to Britney, asking that at least $224,000 be repaid to the singer's estate.
Jamie, 68, and Lynne, 65, were married from 1976 until 2002.
In addition to the Womanizer singer, the exes share 30-year-old daughter Jamie Lynn and 44-year-old son Bryan.
Britney appears to want to move on with her life as the legal drama continues.
She reportedly hopes to marry her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, have more children and return to singing.
Britney was previously married to Kevin Federline, 43, from 2004-2007.
The former couple share sons Sean, 15, and Jayden, 14, together.
