Britney Spears has asked her father James to resign as her conservator and to appoint Jodi Montgomery, a private professional fiduciary, in his place.
Spears' court appointed attorney Samuel Ingham filed the request on Tuesday (March 23) in Los Angeles Superior Court. Montgomery has been serving as the pop singer's temporary conservator since Sept. 9, 2019 when her father temporarily relinquished his role citing health reasons at the time. Spears' court documents also make clear that her requested appointment of Montgomery does not mean that she is giving up her rights in the future to end the conservatorship entirely.
"[Spears] expressly reserves the right to petition for the termination of this conservatorship," states the court filing. "Nothing in the within petition shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of that right."
