Court rejects Britney’s plea to be freed from father’s control
A court has rejected an attempt by the singer Britney Spears to have her father removed as guardian of her estate. Jamie Spears, who has been his daughter’s legal conservator for 12 years, says he has acted due to concerns about her mental state. However, the pop star says she is “afraid” of her father, and vowed that she would not perform so long as he remained in the role.
