LOS ANGELES (WNCN) – Jamie Spears has agreed to step down as conservator of Britney Spears’ estate, TMZ reports.
Jamie Spears’ attorney is filing paperwork to remove himself as conservator.
Spears, 39, has said recently in court she felt the legal arrangement put in place in 2008 was abusive. Last year, Britney Spears began the legal process of trying to remove her father from any role in her business affairs.
A judge previously rejected that request.
TMZ said Britney Spears’ attorney Mathew Rosengart, said “We are pleased but not necessarily surprised that Mr. Spears and his lawyer finally recognize that he must be removed.”
Jamie Spears was appointed as a conservator of his daughter’s affairs in 2008 after she was hospitalized for psychiatric treatment.
The conservatorship has been the subject of a vocal campaign by fans with the #FreeBritney social media hashtag.
