Despite the bombshell, Los Angeles Superior Court judge Brenda Penny refused to suspend Spears Sr., although she said she would hear future arguments for his suspension or impeachment, which according to Ingham, would be imminent.
“I don’t believe there is any evidence to support my client’s suspension,” Jamie attorney Vivian Lee Thoreen said, describing Ingham’s statements about Britney and Jamie’s relationship as hearsay. say inadmissible.
Justice Penny, however, approved the role of corporate trustee Bessemer Trust as co-custodian at Spears’ request; Britney’s team allege Jamie “had no intention of working with” Bessemer, according to the AP. At one point, Ingham described the 38-year-old Spears as a “high-profile conservative,” and added that she hadn’t spoken to her father for a long time, although Thoreen blamed it on Ingham.
Britney’s mother, James’ ex-wife Lynne, has issued a statement through her lawyer, calling the relationship between her daughter and her ex-husband toxic.
“It broke Lynne’s heart that things got to this point,” the statement said via attorney Gladstone N. Jones.
“Litigation is not uncommon in families,” the statement continued, “but it is not a usual family.”
Spears has been in guardianship since her legendary bad 2007, which included her multi-day marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander (who came to support her this summer). In August, Jamie told The Post he was never motivated by anything other than Spears’ best interests.
Despite the increasingly heated legal battle over Spears’ tutelage – and the accompanying social media movement, #FreeBritney – the singer has maintained an incongruous and cheerful social media presence.
“I know there have been a lot of comments and a lot of people have said a lot of different things about me,” she said on Instagram on November 2. “But I just want to let you know I’m okay.” I am the happiest of my life and I send you all a lot of prayers and wishes and a lot of love.
