Judge suspends Britney Spears’ father Jamie as conservator of her estate after 13 years

A judge on Wednesday suspended Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, from the conservatorship that has controlled the singer’s life and money for 13 years. Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny agreed with a petition from Spears and her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, that James “Jamie” Spears needs to give up his role as conservator. The move is a major victory for Ms. Spears, who pleaded during hearings held in June and July that her father needed to be removed as conservator. After hearing arguments from both sides, judge Penny said: “The current situation is untenable. It reflects a toxic environment which requires the suspension of James Spears.”
