Jamie Spears’ lawyer Vivienne L. Thorin told how the court views Jamie’s relationship with her daughter and his role as guardian.
Last week, the court appointed a second guardian for Britney – the Bessemer Trust – giving him equal powers with Spears. Now Jamie is obliged to cooperate with a co-guardian and coordinate decisions with him when disposing of the singer’s property and finances.
“The court decision shows that the court trusts our client, Jamie Spears, to work with the Bessemer Trust. He himself wants to work with the fund in order to continue the investment strategy in the interests of his daughter. The court takes such matters very seriously and has been closely monitoring Britney’s situation from the beginning. Jamie Spears has diligently and professionally fulfilled his duties as Britney’s guardian, and his love for his daughter and the desire to protect her is visible to the court, ”said Thorin.
At the same time, Britney’s side, in particular her lawyer Sam Ingham, insist that Jamie is not suitable for the role of the singer’s guardian. According to Ingham, Spears told him that she was afraid of her father and would not continue her creative career while he was in charge of her affairs.
Discussion of Britney’s situation flared up with renewed vigor after the release of the documentary Framing Britney Spears. It examines the story of custody of the singer and says that her father, in pursuit of his mercantile goals, literally seized power over his daughter, depriving her of almost all the opportunities to control her own life.
The film contains a couple of video clips in which Spears cries about his guardianship, and emphasizes that he really loves freedom. Also, witnesses note that Britney is quite adequate and capable of making decisions, however, it is allegedly beneficial for her guardian to create the opposite impression on the public.
