A court in Los Angeles, California, has once again rejected a request to remove the father of pop singer Britney Spears, 38, as a “guardian”.
Britney Spears again filed a lawsuit in early September this year seeking the removal of her father, James Spears, from her “guardianship”.
His father, James Spears, has been his legal guardian since 2008 and handles all his affairs. Under U.S. law, Britney Spears cannot do any work without her father’s permission.
The actress had asked the US court in August this year to remove her father from her “guardianship” just to avoid restrictions on doing everything with permission.
However, the court rejected the singer’s application and appointed her father as her ‘guardian’ till February 2021.
But following the court’s decision, Britney Spears reapplied in September, removing her father from “guardianship” and appointing a management firm with him as her guardian.
Britney Spears’ application was due to be heard on October 14, but for some reason could not be heard at that time, after which her application was heard in a Los Angeles court on November 10.
According to the British newspaper The Guardian, Los Angeles court judge, Brenda Penny once again rejected the request to remove the ‘patronage’ of Britney’s father.
While the court refused to remove the singer’s father from the position of ‘guardian’, it also approved the involvement of a management firm in the ‘guardianship’ case at the request of Britney Spears.
Due to Corona, the trial went online, but Britney could not appear online.
Britney Spears’ lawyers told the court that if the singer’s father remained her “guardian” for a long time, she would not be able to sing in the future.
At the same time, the singer’s lawyers blamed her father’s appointment as a “patron” for Britney Spears’ financial difficulties and said they were busy stealing and looting her wealth.
However, the lawyers for Britney Spears’ father rejected the arguments of the singer’s lawyers and told the court that the singer’s wealth had increased during the last 12 years and it was all due to her father.
According to James Spears’ lawyers, removing the singer’s father from the position of ‘guardian’ at this time would be detrimental to the singer.
The court later approved the inclusion of a management body to look after the singer’s father, including keeping him in the position of “guardian”.
Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, has been her legal guardian since 2008.
A US court has appointed Britney as her guardian under the Conservatorship Act in 2008 after she became mentally ill.
The court had appointed legal guardians for the singer after the court found that Britney Spears could not handle her financial and physical affairs and was not feeling well due to her poor mental condition.
The actress’s second marriage ended when she divorced 42-year-old singer Kevin Federline and faced legal issues and complications for the delivery of her two young children.
After the divorce of her second marriage and the grief of not having children, the actress suffered from mental problems and mental problems began to grow with her, after which the court granted her two persons, including her father. The guardian was appointed.
