Jamie Spears, Britney Spears’ father, has petitioned to end his daughter’s conservatory after more than a decade, TMZ and Variety note. Pitchfork has reached out to Britney and Jamie Spears for comments.

Jamie Spears’ attorney Vivian Thoreen gave an explanation for the petition in the filing:

Ms. Spears told this court that she would like to regain control of her life without the safety rails of a conservatory. She would like to be able to decide for herself about her medical care, when, where and how often she receives treatment. She wants to control the money she’s made from her career and spend it without supervision or supervision. She wants to get married and have a baby if she wants. In short, she wants to live her life however she wants, without the constraints of a restorer or legal process.

As Mr. Spears kept saying, he only wants what is best for his daughter. If Ms. Spears wants to quit the conservatory and believes she can manage her own life, Mr. Spears believes she should get this chance.

On August 12, Jamie Spears announced that he would be stepping down from the agreement. A later report from NBC made it clear that the change would not take effect immediately; on August 30th, Spears’ attorney filed another letter demanding that Jamie Spears resign by September 29th. Spears had moved to remove her father from the Conservatory, a position he has held since its inception in late July 2008.

In the months leading up to Jamie Spears’ cancellation, the Britney Spears case received increasing public support. A report from the New Yorker confirmed Spears’ statement in late June about the conditions of the conservatory. The longtime manager of Spears and the court-appointed attorney both resigned at the hearing because they wanted to comply with the singer’s request.
