Jamie Spears, father of the singer Britney Spears, took a surprising decision this Tuesday (07/09): he petitioned the US court asking for the termination of the artist’s guardianship, which he has commanded since 2008.
The information is from the network NBC, who reported that Britney’s father referred the document to the court, saying that she “has a right for the court to seriously consider whether such guardianship is really still necessary.”
Still according to the text sent to the court, Jamie claims that the circumstances of Britney’s life have changed since 2008, and with that, “the need to establish a guardianship may no longer exist”.
In addition, Jamie claims that, to end the guardianship, Britney would not need to pass new exams — something she has already made clear in her recent statements that she would not do.
