"Any time Britney wants to end her conservatorship, she can ask her lawyer to file a petition to terminate it," Jamie Spears' lawyer says in a statement.
Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears is speaking out against Congressmen Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) after they asked for federal hearings about conservatorships and noted the singer as the "most striking example."
Citing the #FreeBritney movement that has grown tremendously following the February release of the Framing Britney Spears documentary, Gaetz and Jordan urged House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) to hold a hearing "to examine whether Americans are trapped unjustly in conservatorships" in a formal letter on Tuesday. The congressmen want to examine not just Spears' conservatorship, but the system in general.
"If the conservatorship process can rip the agency from a woman who was in the prime of her life and one of the most powerful pop stars in the world, imagine what it can do to people who are less powerful and have less of a voice," Rep. Gaetz said in a press statement.
