Britney Spears' Father Wants Her Medical Records to Stay Sealed Amid Conservatorship Case

Britney Spears' Father Wants Her Medical Records to Stay Sealed Amid Conservatorship Case

Britney Spears is interested in unsealing parts of her conservatorship case for the “informed support” of the public, but her father Jamie Spears is not in agreement.

According to newly filed documents from her father, the court needs to make some other big decisions about her health first, via TMZ on Friday (September 11).

According to the outlet, Jamie says that Britney‘s lawyer is grandstanding by trying to unseal parts of her ongoing conservatorship case and opening it to the public, and that before she can waive her right to privacy, the court needs to determine she has “the capacity to understand the consequences of her waiver.”

He is arguing that her medical records need to stay sealed, and worried that they could have a detrimental effect on Britney if the public gets their hands on them, according to TMZ. He also argues it is in the best of interest of Britney and her children.

Jamie points out that the conservatorship is voluntary, and Britney can file a request to terminate at any time, but still has not up to this point.

Britney previously said she doesn’t want her father to return to the role of sole conservator.

Jamie says in the paperwork that conservatorship of her estate (finances) is “inextricably entwined” with the conservatorship of her person (medical), and unsealing details could expose sensitive medical issues.

Britney‘s conservatorship was first placed in 2008 with her father, Jamie Spears, being named the permanent conservator. After Jamie stepped down due to health reasons last year, Jodi Montgomery was named temporary conservator. Since 2008, the courts have continued to rule that she’s not capable of making decisions about her finances and health care.

Here’s what her friend Paris Hilton recently said about that…
