Her father was her curator until last fall, when he stepped down due to health problems. Since then, certified restaurateur Jodi Montgomery has taken on this role. According to the court record, Spears is “strongly opposed” to her father’s return as conservator and overseer of her estate and has hinted that she may seek to end the guardianship for good.
“Without in any way waiving his right to seek termination of this trusteeship in the future,” Ingham wrote on the record, via New York Times, “Britney would like Ms. Montgomery’s appointment as her personal curator to be made permanent.” Ms. Spears also “strongly prefers the appointment of a qualified corporate trustee” to manage her financial affairs and estate in her father’s place. A status hearing is scheduled for Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Ingham declined to comment.
A growing group of supporters, concerned about Spears and questioning the terms and motives of his tutelage, have pleaded for the pop star under the hashtag FreeBritney. His father addressed the movement in an interview with Page six.
“All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. The world has no idea, ”he said. “It’s up to the California court to decide what’s best for my daughter. It is no one’s business. “I love my daughter,” he added.
