Jamie Spears has filed new court documents agreeing to step down as conservator of daughter Britney Spears' estate, claiming that he wants to work with the court on an orderly transition.
The legal documents submitted by Jamie's team read: "There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate ... and it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears' best interests."
The continue on to say, however, "Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests. So, even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter's new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator.
"Regardless of his formal title, Mr. Spears will always be Ms. Spears' father, he will always love her unconditionally, and he will always look out for her best interests."
Jamie goes on to attack Lynne Spears, saying that she has had little, if any, presence in Britney's life since her conservatorship began in 2008. Allegedly, Britney even refused to see her mother when she was admitted to a mental health facility in 2019.
Jamie claims that he intervention effectively saved Britney when she was "in crisis, desperately in need of help" 13 years ago, adding, "Not only was she suffering mentally and emotionally, she was also being manipulated by predators and in financial distress. Mr. Spears came to his daughter's rescue to protect her."
He went on to claim that he had never forced Britney to do anything as her conservator, including performing.
Britney's lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, responded to the news, saying: "We are pleased but not necessarily surprised that Mr. Spears and his lawyer finally recognize that he must be removed. We are disappointed, however, by their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms. Spears and others."
Rosengart added, "We look forward to continuing our vigorous investigation into the conduct of Mr. Spears, and others, over the past 13 years, while he reaped millions of dollars from his daughter's estate, and I look forward to taking Mr. Spears's sworn deposition in the near future. In the interim, rather than making false accusations and taking cheap shots at his own daughter, Mr. Spears should step aside immediately."
