Britney was first placed under a conservatorship in her dad’s care in 2008, though he partially stepped aside (only from being conservator of her person) due to his own medical issues in 2019. Jodi was named Britney’s temporary conservator of her person, and her lawyer requested in March 2021 that Jodi remain in that role permanently.
Last week, Britney broke her silence on her 13-year conservatorship, saying, “I want to end the conservatorship without being evaluated.” The mother of two added during her public testimony, “It’s not OK to force me to do anything I don’t want to do.”
She testified that she is prohibited from removing her IUD birth control and from having any more children under the conservatorship.
Jamie’s attorney read a statement in court to acknowledge her pain: “Mr. Spears is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain. Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much.”
He filed a petition in court on Tuesday, June 29, to request that a judge “investigate” the allegations she made during her testimony. The 68 year old said he is “concerned about the management and care of his daughter,” as he has not been in charge of her personal or medical affairs since 2019.
Jodi’s lawyer issued a statement to E! News on Wednesday, June 30, to defend her treatment of the “Circus” artist.
“I can state unequivocally that Jodi Montgomery has been a tireless advocate for Britney and for her well-being. While she does not control Britney’s financial assets, she is responsible for her personal care, and if Britney wants any issue brought up to the Court, Ms. Montgomery is and has always been ready, willing, and able to do so,” the statement explained. “From the very beginning of her appointment in September 2019, Ms. Montgomery and the medical team that she assembled have had one primary goal—to assist and encourage Britney in her path to no longer needing a conservatorship of the person.”
