Ultimate dadager Jamie Spears has filed the paperwork to end the conservatorship that has controlled his daughter Britney’s life and finances for the last 12 years. After mental health issues surfaced in 2007, Jamie and a lawyer took control of the 39yo’s life, money, career – and a whole lot more. The pop star has been pushing to end the arrangement, telling a hearing in July her father should be jailed for abuse. Despite previously defending the arrangement, her father said via a statement: “If Ms Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr Spears believes that she should get that chance”. Britney’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart called the development “vindication” and said she will “continue to explore all options” regarding pressing charges against her father.
