During the interview, he revealed that they have not spoken since her attorney filed to remove him as conservator, and were previously on “good terms.”

“I love my daughter and I miss her very much. When a family member needs special care and protection, families need to step up, as I have done for the last 12-plus years, to safeguard, protect and continue to love Britney unconditionally,” he said.

“I have and will continue to provide unwavering love and fierce protection against those with self-serving interests and those who seek to harm her or my family,” he went on to say.

His attorney Vivian Lee Thoreen described their relationship as “not that different than your average father-daughter relationship.”

“There has always been a mutual love and respect for each other. Until Britney‘s court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham abruptly instructed Jamie not to contact Britney a few months ago, Jamie and Britney had spoken often and regularly throughout the entire conservatorship. In fact, they had spoken just the day before and had had a pleasant and collaborative conversation,” she said.

A source for Britney did not yet comment. Here is what her lawyer claims she feels about her father’s role in the conservatorship.
