Britney Spears’ father asks court to investigate claims made at conservatorship hearing
“Either the allegations will be shown to be true, in which case corrective action must be taken,” a petition from his lawyers, gotten by CNN, checks out, “or they will be shown to be false, in which case the conservatorship can continue its course. It is not acceptable for the Conservators or the Court to do nothing in response to Ms. Spears’ testimony.”
Throughout a hearing one week earlier, Britney Spears called her court-ordered conservatorship — in location considering that 2008 — “abusive.” The vocalist stated she felt required to carry out, take medication and usage contraception versus her will by her conservators, of which her dad is one.
Spears’ dad had actually been the conservator of her approximated $60 million estate considering that 2008, along with lawyer Andrew Wallet, following a series of individual concerns that played out openly for the vocalist.

Jodi Montogomery was designated short-lived conservator of Spears’ individual in 2019, after Jamie Spears suffered a series of medical concerns. Montgomery is charged with managing Spears daily care and medical choices.
A 2nd filing by Jamie Spears demands the court not approve Spears’ lawyer’s ask for Montgomery to be designated the irreversible conservator of his child’s individual. Jamie Spears, according to the file, does not desire Montogomery making choices for his child due to the fact that he feels it “does not reflect Ms. Spears’ wishes.”

“There was no such finding and there is no such order,” the filing checks out. “Nonetheless, based on this false premise, Mr. Ingham seeks an order from the Court taking away Ms. Spears’ right to give informed consent for her own medical treatment.” Including uppercase, “Mr. Ingham should not be allowed to take away Ms. Spears’ right to consent to medical treatment.”
CNN has actually connected to Ingham for remark.
