The singer officially called for an end to Jamie’s involvement in guardianship earlier this week and the judge on Wednesday denied her wishes, TMZ reported.
According to the media outlet, a judge has ruled that Jamie Spears will remain his co-curator “at least for the time being.”
Britney’s attorney, Sam Ingham, wanted Jamie to be replaced by Bessemer Trust – a third-party company that would be the sole custodian of his estate – but the judge dismissed the request.
The star’s legal team reportedly first requested that Jamie be removed from guardianship in November, but they were also denied at the time.
Recently, the lawyer again filed legal documents to make Bessemer Trust the curator – which the judge agreed to, but on condition that Jamie himself remains a co-curator, the outlet said.
They also claimed the judge reiterated that Jamie’s suspension request was specifically denied.
Certain legal documents still need to be filed for Bessemer Trust to assume co-custodial functions. In the meantime, Jamie remains the ONLY responsible for Britney’s estate.
The move was made AFTER Britney’s moving testimony during her very first court hearing last week.
Earlier today, Britney Guardianship Director Jodi Montgomery released a lengthy statement blaming the singer’s “suffering” on Jamie.
The message came after Jamie, 68, submitted new documents to the court on Wednesday, which said he was “concerned” that Jodi’s interests “do not reflect Ms Spears’ wishes.”
Hours later, Jodi responded in a lengthy statement from her lawyer, obtained by People, and claimed she was the one who had been “a tireless advocate” for Britney, 39.
According to her lawyer, Jodi said the explosive charges Britney brought in court last week were “sincere”.
She also insisted that Jamie was the person responsible for “approving all expenses as comptroller of her estate,” something the singer complained about in court last week.
Jodi’s statement notably revealed that she would present a care plan to the court for “a path to end” the guardianship.
However, Jamie’s attorney fired back: “Ms Spears told the court on June 23 that she opposed a guardianship and revealed her ongoing disputes with Ms Montgomery over her medical treatment and others. personal care issues. “
The legal letter continued, “These statements contradict the idea that Ms. Spears would seek to have Ms. Montgomery appointed as her permanent personal curator. “
On Wednesday, Jamie blamed his daughter’s current personal curator and lawyer for the “controversial ban on marriage and more children.”
Jamie claimed “he was cut off from communication” with Britney, in legal documents obtained by TMZ.
He said Britney’s curator Jodi was to blame if Britney was prevented from marrying longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari or having a baby.
The controversial figure then alleged that when Britney’s attorney, Sam, appointed Jodi as his curator, he claimed that his daughter lacked the mental capacity to make decisions about her medical treatment.
Last week, Britney said in her virtual hearing that she wanted to get married and have her IUD removed so she could have another baby.
The Toxic singer said her curator “would not let her do it.”
She told the court: “I want to get married and have a baby.
“I wanted to take the IUD out and have a baby, but the curator won’t let me because they don’t want me to have a baby.
Britney is already a mother to sons Sean, 15, and Jayden, 14, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The former couple married from 2004 to 2007 and were constantly in the media.
She also called the guardianship “abusive” and said she wanted to “sue her family”.
