Britney Spears’ father will remain her guardian
Britney Spears’ father will remain her guardian. Another hearing on the custody of 39-year-old Britney Spears took place in the United States yesterday. During them, Judge Brandy Penny rejected the singer’s request to completely remove her father from guardianship, but at the same time deprived him of the right to be the sole guardian of his daughter on financial issues.
On November 10, Penny approved the Bessemer Trust Co. as a co-guardian with Spears’s father (recall that Jamie continues to be in charge of his daughter’s financial affairs). However, Jamie Spears’ lawyer objected to the wording of the proposed order, claiming that it unduly diminishes his client’s authority over his daughter’s estate. But the judge dismissed these objections.
Speaking in court yesterday, the star’s lawyer Samuel Ingham said the purpose of the order was to give Jamie Spears and the trust fund equal rights and responsibilities in the hope that together they would come up with a better way to deal with this complex property issue in the best interest of his client.
It’s no secret that my client doesn’t want her father to be a co-guardian,
– he noted.
The next meetings are expected to take place on March 17 and April 27.
