Britney Spears 'Dreams' of Conservatorship Ending, But 'Needs People Who Look Out For Her' (Report)

The complicated saga of Britney Spears‘ conservatorship continues.

Following the news that Britney herself “strongly opposes” father Jamie Spears returning to the role of sole conservator, a source tells People that Britney “still wants the conservatorship to end at some point, but more urgently right now she doesn’t want her dad to regain the sole conservator role.”

Jamie is very old school. He treats Britney like a child,” the source told the outlet.

In 2008, Britney was first placed under the conservatorship, and the courts have continued to rule that she is not capable of making decisions about her finances and health care.

Britney wants someone who is respectful and considerate to be in charge of her conservatorship. Someone from the outside who is not her family. Someone who will treat her like an adult and listen to her. She will never have this relationship with Jamie,” the source went on to say.

“She dreams about the conservatorship ending, but this doesn’t seem realistic. She needs to be surrounded by people who look out for her,” the source also told People.

“She is very disappointed in the drama that he caused with her boys,” they also explained of Jamie‘s altercation with Britney‘s son in 2019.

At the same time, her sister Jamie Lynn Spears made new legal moves to be more involved in her sister’s finances.

Here is what Jamie Spears has said about fan concern regarding the conservatorship…

Jamie Lynn Spears Seeks More Control Over Britney Spears' Fortune

Jamie Lynn Spears is making a new move in court.

The 29-year-old sister of Britney Spears, who was recently revealed to have been named the trustee of her estate two years ago, filed a new request in court last week, via the LA Times on Tuesday (August 25).

Britney‘s sister is “now seeking more control over the performer’s fortune amid an increasingly heated struggle over a complicated conservatorship,” the outlet reports.

In the filing, Jamie Lynn “asked that all the assets of the SJB Revocable Trust be moved into one or more accounts with Fidelity Brokerage Services with her as the custodian. If approved, the move would put Britney Spears’ financial assets into those accounts and require a judge’s approval to remove them.”

The trust was created in 2004 to protect her children’s future, and was amended in 2018 to say that upon her death, the trustee — Jamie Lynn Spears — would administer the family’s assets for her children.

“The filing doesn’t explain what role it could play in the ongoing battle over the singer’s protracted conservatorship case — known in other states as a legal guardianship,” the LA Times added.

The conservatorship was recently extended to 2021, with a big new request from Britney still pending…

Jamie Lynn Spears Named Trustee of Britney Spears' Fortune

Britney Spears‘ sister, Jamie Lynn, is now the trustee of a trust that holds the fortune belonging to the 38-year-old Glory pop star, The Blast reported Tuesday (August 25).

According to legal documents obtained by the outlet, Jamie Lynn was named trustee of the “SJB Revocable Trust,” set up by Britney in 2004 to protect her vast fortune and provide for her children’s financial future.

The trust was “amended in 2018, naming Jamie Lynn as the ‘trustee’ and the move was signed off on by her co-conservators Andrew Wallet, and their father Jamie Spears. According to the documents, while alive Britney Spears is the ‘sole beneficiary’ of the SJB Trust, but it outlines what steps are to be taken if she passes away.”

Jamie is asking the court to approve the appointment of Fidelity Financial Management to create “blocked accounts” that will hold all of Britney‘s assets and serve as advisors with her investments, the documents also outline.

It’s “unclear if Jamie is asking to move the assets to these accounts now, or in the event of Britney‘s death. But, the trust outlines exactly what should happen to her fortune in the case of her death…in other words, if she passes away, Jamie Lynn will ensure that the assets and cash be transferred to the trust set up to take care of her children.”

This is the first time her sister has been named in connection to her conservatorship.

Her mother, Lynne Spears, recently filed to become more involved in this trust.

At the same time, if you didn’t know, there is a viral #FreeBritney movement on social media, as many fans are concerned about Britney‘s well-being under a conservatorship managed by her father Jamie Spears since 2008.

“How about your sister’s OBVIOUS mental illness? Why don’t you speak on that?” a person wrote.

“You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters. She is a strong, badass, unstoppable woman, and that’s the only thing that is OBVIOUS,” Jamie Lynn hit back.

“You guys (the family) need to speak out and clarify all these assumptions. I love you, but around this sensitive situation some clarification is needed for both sides. People need to understand, not assume,” another fan wrote.

“I would never speak out just to clarify things to the public, when the person it pertains to does not want it to happen. I’d rather take all the hate, then speak about someone else’s personal matter, that they want to be kept private,” she responded.

Another fan expressed that “some of us are spimply [sp] interested in what is going on because…we care,” to which she said: “I really appreciate you reaching out in such a respectful way. Your love and support is very much appreciated from me and my family.”

Lynne Spears recently filed this paperwork to get involved in Britney‘s conservatorship.

Jamie Lynn Spears Asks Fans to Respect Privacy for Mental Health Issues, Supports Halsey's Tweets About Kanye West

Jamie Lynn Spears is speaking out amid Kanye West‘s tweets that left many concerned about his mental health on Monday night (July 20).

The 29-year-old actress, singer, and younger sister of Britney Spears reposted one of Halsey‘s tweets that read, “No jokes right now. I have dedicated my career to offering education and insight about bipolar disorder and I’m so disturbed by what I’m seeing. Personal opinions about someone aside, a manic episode isnt a joke. If you can’t offer understanding or sympathy, offer your silence.”

Jamie Lynn wrote, “‘If you can’t offer understanding or sympathy, offer your silence’- HALSEY. If you deal with mental illness or care for someone dealing with mental illness, then you know how important it is to respect the situation with privacy for the person, and the family trying to protect their loved ones, no matter how it may appear to the public, and as the public we must learn to do the same.”

She continued, “I pray this doesn’t bring shame to anyone dealing with mental illness, you are not alone, and you are loved. Sending all my love and prayers to all of you♥️”

Jamie Lynn Spears Picks The Person She Wants To Play Zoey in a 'Zoey 101' Reboot

Jamie Lynn Spears knows exactly who she’d like to play Zoey in a possible Zoey 101 reboot – her daughter, Maddie!

“Maybe she could play Zoey when she was younger or something,” the 29-year-old actress and singer shared in a new interview with ET.

Jamie starred as the titular character when she was just 12-years-old until she was 17 in 2008, before the show ultimately ended.

“It’s really strange to look at my now-12-year-old and be like, ‘Oh my gosh, like, I was on a show at this point.’ It’s bizarre, I’m like, I can’t imagine,” Jamie shared. “But then I see all the things that she does that are so amazing. I’m like, I could’ve never stepped up in those ways.”

Jamie adds, “It just really is cool to be able to put myself where she is and what I was doing at this time… I’m able to have a different perspective that I think is important as we hopefully go on this next journey of seeing my children see me when I was their age. It’s really bizarre.”

The cast actually just reunited for an All That sketch. Check it out below now!
