The pop star’s father Jamie Spears has been suspended from the conservatorship that has controlled her life and finances for the last 12 years. Calling it an “untenable” situation, Judge Brenda Penny scheduled 12 November as the day when the question of scrapping the conservatorship altogether will be decided. Britney told a hearing in July that her father should be jailed for abuse. She didn’t appear in court yesterday ​but said she was “on cloud 9” in an Instagram post. She was flying a plane at the time… Overnight, a lawyer for Jamie said the result was “disappointing”. “For anyone who has tried to help a family member dealing with mental health issues, they can appreciate the tremendous amount of daily worry and work this required,” she said. And if you’re after more Britney-aligned content, Netflix has debuted its documentary Britney vs Spears this week. And the New York Times’ latest offering Controlling Britney Spears will be up on Netflix mid next week.
