In March, Jamie’s lawyer, Vivian Thoreen, informed NBC News, “Britney being safe and not being taken advantage of is his number one priority.”
Vivian echoed comparable beliefs when speaking with CNN that exact same month, mentioning Jamie “would love nothing more than to see Britney not need a conservatorship…Like any parent, he doesn’t always see eye-to-eye on what Britney may want. But Jamie believes every single decision he has made has been in her best interest.”
On June 30, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge rejected a demand from Britney’s attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, to eliminate Jamie as her co-conservator, per the court order acquired by E! News. Moreover, Jamie petitioned the court on June 29 to examine the allegations Britney made in her statement.
“Given the nature of the allegations and claims, it is critical that the Court confirm whether or not Ms. Spears’s testimony was accurate in order to determine what corrective actions, if any, need to be taken,” Jamie’s filing states, which was acquired by E! News. “It is also imperative for the proper functioning of conservatorship proceedings before this Court that all parties be provided a full and fair opportunity to respond to allegations and claims asserted against them, including by way of an evidentiary hearing.”
At this time, Jamie manages his child’s estate and has the authority to authorize all of her expenses. Back in 2008, Britney’s daddy was selected as her co-conservator, together with Andrew M. Wallet. Andrew resigned in 2019. In November 2020, a judge chose that Bessemer Trust Co.—a wealth management group—would function as a co-conservator along with Jamie.
On July 1, the Bessemer Trust Co. asked for a judge eliminate it from its function as co-conservator “due to changed circumstances” after Britney “claimed irreparable harm to her interests” in the court hearing.
