Britney Spears recently exposed the atrocities of her guardian father to court. He also demanded that his father be removed from his guardianship. But despite Britney’s shocking testimonies, on 30 June the court sided with his father.
Judge Brenda Penny “retains the guardianship of Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears,” said Judge Brenda Penny. Currently, Jamie Spears is the custodian of Britney Spears in partnership with wealth management firm Bessemer Trust.
Britney has yet to file a formal lawsuit seeking the termination of her father’s legal guardianship. Therefore, this judgment is likely to be overturned. However, on the 1st, the Bessemer Trust suddenly announced that she was giving up her guardianship of Britney Spears.
“Things have changed,” the Bessemer Trust said. “We knew that Britney Spears had voluntarily applied for guardianship.” The Bessemer Trust has told the court it will renounce its legal guardianship. If the court upholds the Bessemer Trust’s demands, Jamie Spears will continue to manage Britney’s $68 billion in assets as her sole guardian.
In such a complex situation, Brittany’s fellow singer, Iggy Azalea, supported Britney’s revelations and testified that she had witnessed his father’s atrocities. In 2015, Iggy collaborated with Britney to sing a song called ‘Pretty Girls’. “Britney never exaggerated or lied,” said Iggy.

“Working with Britney, I witnessed his father’s atrocities firsthand. Britney was limited by the most bizarre and trivial things. His father also monitored how many sodas Britney drank. Why do you need it?”
Iggy also revealed that Britney’s biological father forced him to sign a “non-disclosure agreement” with Britney before performing at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. “He said he wouldn’t be on stage if I didn’t sign.”
“Britney’s father often puts pressure on this confidentiality agreement. Britney Spears has made it clear that this behavior is detrimental to her mental health, and her biological father should not continue to be a guardian.”
Seunggi: “If Britney’s biological father has a confidentiality agreement and wants to sue me, try it. But I will support Britney Spears till the end.”
“Britney’s testimony alone should exclude her father from guardianship. But that’s not the case, so I want to help him.” Iggy added.

In 2016, Iggy appeared on a TV show and revealed that Britney’s house had been searched by ‘members’ before she and her had lunch together at her home. “They checked my house to make sure I wasn’t hiding anything weird and it wasn’t a bad influence on Britney. Of course I passed the ‘test’.”
