Britney Spears Won't Perform as Long as Dad Jamie Is In Charge of Her Career, According to Lawyer

Britney Spears will not perform again while her father Jamie Spears remains her conservator.

The 38-year-old Glory pop star’s attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, claims that Britney is “afraid of” her father and will not perform amid her ongoing conservatorship battle in court, as of Tuesday (November 10).

“My client has informed me that she is afraid of her father. She also stated that she will not perform as long as her father is in charge of her career. We are really at a crossroads,” her lawyer said.

One of Jamie’s lawyers, Vivian Lee Thoreen, declared the comments to be hearsay and claimed that the lawyer prevented Britney from speaking to Jamie.

Judge Brenda Penny decided not to suspend Jamie during the hearing, saying it can be discussed “down the road.”

Jamie was put in place as Britney’s conservator in February 2008 after a public breakdown, and he continues to be in charge of her medical and financial decisions, among other powers. He stepped down as conservator of her person in September of 2019, citing “personal health reasons,” but remained conservator of her estate. Britney requested to have him removed entirely back in August.

Concerned fans have called for an end entirely to the conservatorship using the hashtag #FreeBritney, which her father called a conspiracy theory.
