“If Ms. Spears wants to end probation and believes she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears thinks she should get this chance,” the document said
The father of the singer Britney Spears on Tuesday, local time, filed a motion in a Los Angeles court to waive 13 years of custody of his daughter. The artist had been striving for it for many months.
In the last two years, the singer has twice asked to remove her father from the role of her curator. In July, she described their relationship as “violent” and stated that she refused to perform under his tutelage.

In the document, which was reached, inter alia, CNN, Jamie Spears, argued that his daughter was “entitled to have the court seriously consider whether probation is still needed.” “The recent events related to probation force us to consider whether the circumstances have changed enough that the grounds for its existence may no longer exist,” said the document filed with the Los Angeles court.
“She should get this chance”
“Ms Spears has testified in court that she wants to regain control of her life without probation,” it was written and added that Britney Spears was willing to decide on her own medical and financial care.
It was also assured that Jamie Spears only wanted “the best” for his daughter. “If Ms. Spears wants to end her probation and believes she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears thinks she should be given this chance,” it underlined.

In 2008, Spears’ father and his attorney at the time, Andrew Wallet, gained control of all aspects of Britney’s life, including her estimated $ 60 million fortune. The artist was then struggling with mental illness and addictions.
Celebrity fans question the ethics and legality of the incapacitating care imposed on her and partially on her. They initiated the campaign under the slogan #FreeBritney. The singer has not been able to enjoy full freedom for 13 years. At that time, she released platinum albums, performed, among others on TV and in Las Vegas, but she had no financial control over any of these projects.
