The documents stated that Britney believed the appointment of her new conservator for her estate must be open and transparent as it is consistent with her personal interests and good public policy. The sealing motion was brought up by her father to ‘protect’ her but she’s opposed to it. The document also referenced Jamie’s interview with Page Six where he referred to the #FreeBritney movement as nothing but a joke.
According to the documents, “Britney’s conservatorship has attracted an unprecedented level of scrutiny from mainstream media and social media alike. Far from being a conspiracy theory or a ‘joke’ as James reportedly told the media, in large part this scrutiny is a reasonable and even predictable result of James’ aggressive use of the sealing procedure over the years to minimize the amount of meaningful information made available to the public.”
The documents also mentioned that Britney welcomes and appreciates the support of her fans as she tries to regain personal autonomy. Her attorney argued that when Jamie had the power to handle the pop star’s affairs on her behalf, “he surrendered a large measure of privacy.”
Moreover, the documents mentioned that transparency is an important factor for the Court to earn and retain the public’s confidence. In Britney’s case, the whole world is watching.
Based on the documents, the songstress’ conservatorship has attracted scrutiny in both mainstream and social media. The scrutiny is a reasonable and an expected result of her father’s aggressive use of the sealing procedure through the years to minimize information made accessible to the public.
During Jamie’s interview with Page Six, he addressed the #FreeBritney movement. This online campaign argues that the singer should have more freedom while under her conservatorship. Her dad said that the movement is a joke and that these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. He added that it is the court of California who will decide what’s best for Britney and no one else. Jamie explained that he loves his daughter and all of his kids. However, this is their business and it is private.
Just recently, Britney requested in court documents the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company as conservator of her estate and this decision is backed by her mom Lynne Spears who also nominated the company.
