Does Britney still speak to her father Jamie Spears?
Britney’s conservatorship was implemented in 2008 after the star had a series of public meltdowns.
The arrangement put her financial assets, estate, and personal assets under the control of her father, Jamie Spears, and lawyer Andrew Wallet, who has since resigned.
Britney has made several attempts to end the conservatorship, but they have been rejected.
On November 10, 2020 a court rejected an attempt by Britney to have her father removed as conservator of her estate.
This has put a huge strain on her relationship with her father and during the hearing Britney lawyer said they have no “viable working relationship” and have not spoken in a “long while”.
