Despite the fact that some Western media reported yesterday that the father of 39-year-old Britney Spears Jamie has resigned from his guardianship, he has not yet done so. In a statement from his lawyers, it is said that Jamie is really ready to do this, but only when the time is right.
In fact, there is no factual basis for removing Mr. Spears from his position as custodian of his daughter’s estate. And it is a moot point whether the change of custodian now will be in Miss Spears’ interests. Mr. Spears is ready to retire when the time is right, but the change of guardian must be orderly and include resolving issues pending before the court, it says.
In a court document, Jamie’s lawyers claim that he helped his daughter at a time when she was “in crisis and desperate for help” after “suffering mentally and emotionally” and “being manipulated and financially distressed.”
Mr. Spears came to his daughter’s aid to protect her, it says.
The document also states that Jamie Spears intends to work with the court and his daughter’s new lawyer to prepare for the transfer of cases to her new guardian.
Through his lawyers, Jamie stated that regardless of his official position, he will always love his daughter and act in accordance with her interests.
Recall that Jamie Spears became the guardian of his daughter 13 years ago. In recent years, he has been in charge of her finances. Speaking in court in June, Britney said that all these years her life has been a complete nightmare: she was forced to work seven days a week, her personal and sexual life was monitored, drugged and forcibly sent to rehab for treatment. She demands the removal of her father from the position of guardian and a fair punishment for him.
