Britney Spears 'Strongly Opposes' Her Father Jamie's Return as Her Sole Conservator in New Court Filing
Spears is also "strongly opposed" to Jamie "continuing as sole conservator of her estate" and instead "strongly prefers to have a qualified corporate fiduciary appointed to serve in this role," according to the documents.
Her new requests will likely be "aggressively contested" by Jamie, though they are "in her best interests," Spears' attorney says in the filing.
Britney "does not want to perform at this time" and would like to hire a law firm with “substantial expertise in handling contested litigation in a highly complex case such as this one through trial,” according to the court filing.
A representative for Spears and an attorney for Jamie did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
Spears was first placed under a conservatorship in 2008, with the court originally naming her father the permanent conservator of her person and attorney Andrew Wallet the permanent co-conservator of her estate. Wallet retired from his role as co-conservator last year.
In September 2019, Jamie stepped down as the permanent conservator due to "personal health reasons” and Montgomery took his place.
As conservator, Montgomery has the power to communicate with medical personnel regarding Spears and has access to any and all records regarding Spears' medical treatment, diagnosis and testing. She also has access to any and all records regarding Spears' psychiatric treatment, diagnosis and testing.
In May, the conservatorship was extended until Aug. 22 due the novel coronavirus outbreak.
Jamie told Page Six earlier this month that the #FreeBritney movement, which aims to get Spears' conservatorship terminated, “is a joke.”
“All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. The world don’t have a clue,” he said. “It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.”
“I love my daughter,” Jamie added. “I love all my kids. But this is our business. It’s private.”
