Britney Spears’ father has filed papers in a Los Angeles court to end the 13-year conservatorship that saw him overseeing her life and finances.⁣

Jamie Spears wrote that his daughter “is entitled to have this court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required”.⁣

Spears has sought to remove him from the role twice in the last two years.⁣

The pop star has described their relationship as “abusive” and refuses to perform under his management.⁣

Her father’s court filing comes two months after the Toxic singer delivered a bombshell testimony to the court, calling for the conservatorship to be terminated immediately.⁣

“Recent events related to this conservatorship have called into question whether circumstances have changed to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist,” reads the filing submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday.⁣

“Ms Spears has told this Court that she wants control of her life back without the safety rails of a conservatorship,” the petition continues, adding that Spears has expressed her wish to oversee her own medical and financial care.⁣

“As Mr Spears has said again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter,” it continues.⁣

“If Ms Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr Spears believes that she should get that chance.”⁣
