Jamie Spears, Britney Spears’ father, has spoken out publicly for the first time in a decade.
In 2008, the popstar was placed under conservatorship involuntarily, with her father serving as one of her conservators.
Following a legal battle and the formation of the #FreeBritney movement, the contentious contract was terminated in November 2021 after the Toxic hitmaker gave a public testimony accusing her managers and family of abuse.
Jamie defended his role within the conservatorship in an interview with The Mail on Sunday in response to the end of the court arrangement.
“Not everyone will agree with me. It’s been an incredible journey. However, I adore my daughter with all of my heart and soul. Where would Britney be right now if she wasn’t under conservatorship? And I wonder if she’d be alive. I don’t, “He stated. “Conservatorship was an excellent tool for both protecting her and the children (Sean Preston, 17, and Jayden James, 16).”
Jamie stated during the conversation that Britney had “no money” when she was placed in conservatorship but was able to rebuild her wealth over the next 13 years.
The three-time father also defended his role in the arrangement.
“My understanding of a conservatorship is to assist someone in regaining their life, returning to society, and living normally. I’d like to think that I made a difference. There were a few people behind me who were instrumental in getting us to the point where we could assist her “The 70-year-old continued.
Britney has yet to respond to Jamie’s allegations.
