On Wednesday, the judge rejected Britney Spears’ request to remove her estranged father, Jamie Spears, from co-protection.
According to court documents filed by the Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, Judge Brenda J. Penny Spears’ lawyer, Samuel Ingham, rejected a request to make the pop icon’s father the sole protector of her estate.
The document stated: “After the California Bessemer Trust Company was appointed as the sole administrator of the estate, the administrator requested that James P. Spears be suspended immediately. This request was rejected.”
According to the same document, the court also found that Spears was “basically unable to manage his or her financial resources or resist fraud or undue influence.”
Ingham submitted a request in which Spears was “fear of her father” and threatened to suspend the performance until he was removed from his post in November 2020. At that time, her request to remove her father was denied, but she was approved as a co-protector appointed by the court.
Today’s paperwork aims to approve the appointment of Bessemer Trust as a joint protector.
However, today’s ruling also specifically reiterated Judge Petunia’s controversial decision to allow Spears’ father to control the star’s important assets to a large extent, and there are allegedly many of her personal decisions.
Earlier this week, Jamie Spears’ lawyer filed court documents stating that any abuses Britney claimed were not his fault. Instead, he blamed her court-appointed lawyer Ingham. He said his actions included:[do] Can’t reflect her wishes. “
The document stated that Jamie Spears “is very sad to hear about his daughter’s plight and pain, and he believes that these claims must be investigated.” These documents are in response to the documents submitted by his daughter in November 2020, but he only responded this week after her case received high media attention.
Last week, Spears made an impassioned request to the judge on June 23 to release her from “abusive” custody.Her 24-minute public testimony attracted international attention as she shared allegations that her father had legally controlled her for 13 years Assets, actions and her body.
“I have been shocked. I have been traumatized,” Spears told Judge Petunia at the hearing last week. “I just want to go back to my life. Thirteen years have passed. This is enough. I haven’t had my own money for a long time. It is my wish and dream to end all this.”
