Exclusive: “Britney wants to be her own person and not be treated like a child." https://t.co/LpP7IzxrtB— Us Weekly (@usweekly) August 26, 2020
Britney Spears is fighting to be freed from the conservatorship she has been under since 2008.
“Britney wants to be her own person and not be treated like a child,” a source exclusively reveals to Us Weekly.
“She’s ready to take back control after 12 years,” a second insider tells Us.
Last week, Britney, took steps toward regaining control of her life when she filed court documents requesting to permanently remove her father, Jamie Spears, as her conservator.
Jamie stepped down from being Britney's conservator over her personhood (which controls Britney's personal decisions such as where she can go, who she can see and talk to, her medical treatment, etc.) last year after he physically assaulted Britney's son Preston and was issued a restraining order on behalf of both of Britney's sons. However, he remained sole conservator of her finances, a role he had shared with attorney Andrew Wallet until Wallet abruptly resigned in March of last year, leaving Jamie as sole conservator.
In court documents filed last week, Britney requested that Jodi Montgomery, who had taken on the role of temporary conservator of Britney's personhood after Jamie stepped down, remain in that role for now, and requested that a "qualified corporate fiduciary" become conservator of her finances.
Although some speculated that these requests meant that Britney was okay with the conservatorship as long as her father was not involved, sources later told US Weekly that this was not the case and that Britney does want the conservatorship to end.
“With Jodi in the mix, Britney’s been more driven and hopeful and continues to take steps in the right direction,” the second insider tells Us.
“[She] knows the conservatorship will end,” a source close to Britney tells Us. “She’s happy to have the support of fans and the public.”
