The #FreeBritney movement and the documentary “Framing Britney Spears” have succeeded in causing a change in the public narrative around the pop princess, who has gone from openly mocking her nervous breakdown in 2007 to wondering if she was not treated unfairly both for the rest of the world and for her circle of trust, and more specifically if as of today it is necessary that she continue to be subject to legal protection.

In this context, her father Jamie Spears is being harshly criticized for his refusal to hand over the position of the singer’s legal guardian to someone else, even though that would be his daughter’s wish, and thus relinquish the control he still exercises over his professional career and personal life.

Certain sections of Britney’s fan base consider him a selfish and tyrannical figure, which is how the aforementioned documentary portrays him in part, but his lawyer Vivian Thoreen insists that he only did what was best for the pop star at that time. moment and to this day he continues trying to protect her at all costs.

“I understand that every story needs a villain, but people are completely wrong his legal representative has now stated in statements to ABC News“He is a loving, dedicated, and loyal father who saved his daughter from a highly dangerous situation. They were taking advantage of her and hurting her. Jamie saved his life. It was clear that Britney’s fortune was being neglected and that some of the people around her were exploiting it financially

Jamie temporarily disassociated himself from handling Britney’s financial, bureaucratic, and even personal issues in 2019 due to a series of health concerns, but the last oral hearing that took place a few weeks ago to update the terms of the guardianship found that he would continue to lead it together with the management firm Bessemer Trust Company.
