Britney Spears's father has allegedly agreed to step down as her conservator as she fights to end to her 13-year conservatorship.
Jamie Spears, 69, who has controlled the personal affairs and finances of his 39 year old pop star daughter for over a decade, reportedly announced on Thursday 12 August that he is stepping down as conservator amid her battle for freedom, court documents, said to be obtained by TMZ, stated.
"There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr Spears as the Conservator of the Estate … and it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms Spears' best interests," the court documents stated.
"Nevertheless, even as Mr Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests."
OK! has contacted a representative of Britney Spears for comment.
The New York Times reported that her father Jamie, has been pocketing a wage of $16,000 per month, which is equivalent of £11,522.40, while The New Yorker claimed her mother Lynne and brother Bryan are also paid by the singer.
Her sister Jamie Lynn Spears, who recently turned off Instagram comments after coming under fire, has insisted she's broke amid claims that she's the only member of her family who doesn't take a wage from Britney.
Meanwhile her father Jamie has said that he will co-operate with the 'court and his daughter's new attorney' in order to 'prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator', according to the documents obtained by TMZ.
It comes after Britney posted what fans believe to be an indirect attack at her sister, Jamie Lynn for "ignoring" her during her 13-year-long conservatorship battle.
The Oops! I Did It Again hitmaker wrote on Instagram: "There’s nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support … there’s nothing worse than that !!!!"
Jamie Lynn came under scrutiny for not publicly supporting her sister.
Britney's comments came after Jamie Lynn released a video in June claiming she had always "loves, adored and supported" her sister.
Britney's statement released in July read: "How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE … did you put your hand out when I was drowning ???? Again … NO …"
Although Britney kept the identity of the person in question hidden, she included a direct message to them: "If you’re reading this and you know who you are … and you actually have the nerve to say anything about my situation just to save face for yourself publicly !!!
"If you’re gonna post something …. Please stop with the righteous approach when you’re so far from righteous it’s not even funny …." followed by a trio of middle finger emojis before adding: "and have a good day !!!!!"
