Jodi Montgomery, Britney Spears' personal conservator who supports the removal of Jamie Spears as an estate conservator, has spoken out about the situation and has said that having Britney's father as the conservator "is not in the best interest" of the singer.
According to PEOPLE, Montgomery supported replacing Jamie Spears, sixty-nine, as co-conservator of Britney's estate with Jason Rubin in a court filing on Thursday. Montgomery also noted that her medical team also support the decision.
"Jamie should not continue to act as the Conservatee's Conservator of the estate because his doing so is not in the best interest of the Conservatee," the filing read. "Because the paramount concern for this Conservatorship is doing what is in the best interest of the Conservatee, Petitioner hereby joins Conservatee in the Removal Petition."
In another section of the filing, it read: "Ms. Montgomery respectfully notes that Ms. Spears's medical team agrees that it is not in the best interest of the Conservatee for Mr. Spears to be and remain Conservator of the Estate."
"Ms. Montgomery believes in good faith that Ms. Spears's best interests are served by granting the Removal Petition and removing Mr. Spears and replacing him as Conservator of the Estate with Mr. Rubin as requested in the Appointment petition," the filing went on to read.
Montgomery believes that the nominated replacement, Rubin, is qualified to some degree, describing him as "eminently qualified."
Britney's current lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, recently filed a petition to remove her father as the estate conservator and replace him with Rubin.
"Ms. Spears respectfully submits that the Court should appoint her nominee; in that, it is an objectively intelligent preference to nominate a highly qualified, professional fiduciary in this circumstance," the documents read. "Moreover, Ms. Spears respectfully submits that, given the Court's recognition at July 14th, 2021, hearing that Ms. Spears has sufficient capacity to choose her own legal counsel, she likewise has sufficient capacity to make this nomination."
Britney previously told Los Angeles judge Brenda Penny that she wants her dad to be charged with conservatorship abuse.
The singer claimed: "This conservatorship is literally allowing my dad to ruin my life," alleging that she's always been "extremely scared" of her dad because she claims she, thought he was going to "show up drunk."
She even went as far as to say she thought those in charge of her conservatorship were "trying to kill her."
Britney has come a long way since her first court hearings, and there's still some way to go yet, but the star is very hopeful that her life will soon be hers.
