Britney Spears' father asks court to end 13-year conservatorship

In an unexpected development, Jamie Spears, who in 2008 set up the court-sanctioned arrangement that governs the singer's personal and business affairs, said in a court filing that he believed the judge should "now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required."

"If the singer wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, her father believes she should get that chance," read the petition to terminate the legal arrangement.

Britney Spears, 39, has been seeking for months to have her father removed as the overseer of her $60 million estate. She told the court in June the arrangement was abusive and humiliating, reports Reuters. 

Jamie Spears said for the first time last month he was willing to step down but gave no timeframe. Britney Spears also has a second guardian in charge of her personal and medical affairs.

Tuesday's petition went further than the previous attempt, asking the court to end the conservatorship entirely.
