In the article, the publication alleges Jamie Spears not only has final say on all decisions pertaining to Britney’s career and finances under his conservatorship, but he allegedly needs to approve her everyday decisions too, such as which colour cabinets she wants to order for her kitchen.
In newly revealed documents cited by NYT, Britney allegedly told her dad she wanted to re-stain her cabinets. But her alleged request was denied as Jamie thought it would be too expensive.
According to the court documents, Britney complained to a court investigator back in 2016 that she was “sick of being taken advantage of” when she was “the one working and earning her money but everyone around her is on her payroll”.
It was that same year Britney reportedly informed the investigator she wanted to terminate her conservatorship because her father was allegedly “obsessed” with controlling her life.
“She articulated she feels the conservatorship has become an oppressive and controlling tool against her,” the court investigator wrote in the documents, saying Spears said, “Too much control … Too, too much!”
This week, Britney is due to face the judge and directly address the court to voice her feelings about the conservatorship she has been under since 2008. Britney is petitioning to remove her dad as sole conservator and has nominated independent trust company Bessemer Trust to manage her finances full-time.
