“She wants to live her life”: End in sight for Spears conservatorship

Published

on

Jamie Spears requests to terminate the power he has over his daughter, but some are questioning whether it’s under the right intentions.

Jamie Spears to free his daughter from conservatorship

After a long 13-year battle, Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears, has filed a petition to end the conservatorship arrangement that controlled his daughter’s life.

The request came unexpectedly, with Mr Spears telling a Los Angeles court it was Britney’s plea to end the deal which led to his request for termination.

“She wants to be able to make decisions regarding her own medical care, deciding when, where and how often to get therapy [among other things],” Mr Spears says.

“In short, she wants to live her life as she chooses without the constraints of a conservator or court proceeding.”

The events which occurred in the lead-up to the arrangement’s cancellation also contributed to Mr Spears’ decision, with the public eye questioning if Britney’s circumstances justified whether the conservatorship was necessary.

Mr Spears’ lawyer says Jamie wants the best for his daughter and is willing to give her a chance to handle her own life if she believes she is capable.

Is the end in sight?

Britney’s described her father’s conservatorship as “abusive”, addressing the court twice within the last year for him to be removed from his role.

The legal arrangement – usually put in place for those who are old and frail – was instated in 2008, with a series of mental health issues to blame for its purpose.

It meant Britney’s father had control over her finances, healthcare and personal life.

While Jamie Spears did step down in 2019, a licensed conservator now fulfils his role.

In protest, the pop star has refused to perform since 2018 and continues to do so, as long as she’s under her father’s rule.

A word from Britney’s lawyer

While Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, sees this as a win for his client, he says Mr Spears is trying to avoid taking responsibility for the alleged trauma he has caused his daughter.

“It appears that Mr Spears believes he can try to avoid accountability and justice, including sitting for a sworn deposition and answering other discovery under oath, but as we assess his filing (which was inappropriately sent to the media before it was served on counsel) we will also continue to explore all options,” Rosengart told AP in an email.

This was the first time in the last 13 years where Britney was permitted to choose her own attorney.

The case’s next hearing is scheduled for 29 September.

Box Office disaster for Disney

Published

The results from the all-important Thanksgiving Box Office sales are in.

This year’s Thanksgiving movies proved to be a feast and famine for Walt Disney.

While “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” added $64 million to its domestic tally during the five-day time frame, Disney’s latest animated feature “Strange World” failed to lure in moviegoers, generating just $18.6 million.

That is the worst three-day opening for a Disney animated feature since 2000′s “The Emperor’s New Groove.”

It comes as CEO Bob Iger returns to the helm of the company, promising to restructure Disney in a way that puts creativity at the forefront.

Thanksgiving week is an important time for studios at the box office, usually bringing in around $250 million in ticket sales each year.
