A Timeline of the Drama Surrounding Britney Spears’ Conservatorship

by Msnbctv news staff

March 10, 2021: In a statement to People, Jamie’s lawyer Vivian L. Thoreen states the pop star can get out of the conservatorship. “Any time Britney wants to end her conservatorship, she can ask her lawyer to file a petition to terminate it; she has always had this right but in 13 years has never exercised it,” Thoreen explained. “Britney knows that her Daddy loves her, and that he will be there for her whenever and if she needs him, just as he always has been—conservatorship or not.”

March 22, 2021: In a petition obtained by E! News, Britney’s legal team requests that Jodi serve as permanent conservator of Britney’s person (managing her health and personal affairs) and that Jamie resign from that position while remaining co-conservator of her estate. Jodi had stepped in to temporarily replace Jamie as conservator of Britney’s person in 2019 due to her father’s health concerns. Britney’s petition also requested the singer retain the right to petition for termination of the conservatorship as a whole.

According to the petition, Jodi’s powers would include restricting and limiting guests other than Britney’s lawyer, arranging security and location for such meetings, overseeing caretakers and security guards, prosecuting restraining orders, communicating with medical personnel about the star’s health and having access to medical records.

April 2, 2021: The pop star’s former makeup artist Billy Brasfield claims Britney told him she isn’t in control of her social media profiles, prompting a swift denial from the “Toxic” singer. She reportedly tells TMZ, “No, I’m not talking to him at all. I write my posts. I’m not sure who he is talking to, but I am not talking to Billy B.”

April 25, 2021: After receiving the COVID-19 vaccination, Britney joins her boyfriend Sam at his best friend’s wedding. A source tells E! News the ongoing coronavirus pandemic “restrictions” and her father’s strict rules kept her from outings, but she “finally had an opportunity to get out and she took it.”

April 27, 2021: Britney’s attorney Samuel Ingham asks the court to set a status hearing on an “expedited basis,” saying the mother of two would like to “address the court directly.”
