A Los Angeles judge has suspended Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears from the conservatorship that’s controlled the singer’s life, career and finances for 13 years.
The decision is a major victory for the pop star, who has pushed to remove her father from the court-appointed arrangement.
Judge Brenda Perry agreed with a petition from Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, and appointed John Zabel, a certified public accountant, to serve as a temporary manager of her finances. The judge said her father’s suspension was in Britney’s best interest and said the ruling was unable to be appealed.
“This suspension is directly what Britney wanted, she does not want Jamie in her life,” Rosengart said in court Wednesday.
A hearing focused on whether to terminate the conservatorship altogether is scheduled for November 12.
