It's Official: Britney Spears Will Remain Under Her Father's Control For The Rest Of Her Life

Source - Jamie Spears has been his daughter's legal guardian for 12 years, due to concerns about her mental health. Ms Spears' lawyer said the pop star was "afraid" of him, and that she would not perform so long as he remained in the role. Her father's lawyer argued that he always acted in the best interests of his daughter. A judge said she would consider future appeals for his dismissal or outright removal. 

In the meantime, at the request of Ms Spears, financial company Bessemer Trust has been appointed as a co-conservator.

Well there you have it. Britney Spears is officially a slave to her father for the rest of her life. Evil triumphs over good and I, for one, am not happy about it. Especially considering how shitty his argument was as for why he should remain in control of her finances. Technically the judge said she would hear future appeals, but she won't. In the words of Vince Carter...

Britney has been dubbed unfit to manage her $60 million estate and that's that. 

Here's how things played out in court...

During a hearing on Tuesday, Ms Spears' lawyer, Samuel Ingham, said she and her father have no "viable working relationship" and have not spoken in a "long while".

But Vivian Thoreen, Jamie Spears' lawyer, argued that the reason they hadn't spoken was because Mr Ingham had advised Ms Spears against it. Ms Thoreen also defended Mr Spears' record as conservator. When he assumed the role, Ms Spears was fighting tens of millions of dollars in lawsuits. But under his guidance, Ms Thoreen said her business operation was now worth $60m (£45m). The legal battle is taking place against the backdrop of the "Free Britney" movement - a group of fans who believe Ms Spears is being kept prisoner by her father and others.

Britney Spears has not controlled her financial affairs or many of her career decisions since 2008 under the court-enacted agreement. 

Britney also posted these two Instagrams on her feed once the news became public both of which probably aren't helping her case…

Oh well. I guess all we can do now is remember the good old days. That and pray that things get better. That said, no matter what happens, I'll be team #FreeBritney till I die. Now take it away, Brit…
