Britney Spears Blames Mother of Conservatorship Fiasco

Britney Spears has stated that she blames her mother, Lynne Spears, for the conservatorship that has ruled over her life for the past 13 years.

Jamie, the pop singer’s father, has been the public face of the legal arrangement in which the pop star has little power over her personal and financial matters.

However, in an online statement, the singer stated that it was her mother Lynne’s idea.

Britney Spears’ tweet appears to have been sparked by her father’s plea for the conservatorship to be terminated “immediately” and “unconditionally.”

Jamie Spears’ attorneys stated that the request came with “no caveats” and that he would turn over all records pertaining to the agreement, adding that he had “nothing to hide.”

Britney also mentioned her former business manager Lou Taylor in her Tuesday post as helping to organize the conservatorship.

She and Lynne Spears have not replied to the criticisms.

Britney Spears has been in conservatorship since 2008 when her father petitioned a court for legal power over his daughter’s life due to worries about her mental health.

After years of quiet, the singer finally offered her viewpoint in dramatic 23-minute testimony before the Los Angeles Superior Court in June.

The 39-year-old described the conservatorship as “abusive,” claiming she was drugged, compelled to perform against her will, and barred from having children.

In September, singer’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart told reporters that he had “serious concerns” about “possible malfeasance, including conflicts of interest, conservatorship abuse, and the apparent waste of Lynne Spears’ riches,” and pledged a “top-to-bottom” investigation into the issue.

Rosengart also accused Jamie of attempting to avoid answering questions concerning the singer’s alleged monitoring inside her house in court files this week.

Jamie Spears has rejected any claims of impropriety and has stated that he has always operated in his daughter’s “best interests.”

According to his own petition, he intends to turn over all papers related to the matter.
