Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears claims his daughter would have died if not for the 13-year-long conservatorship, according to a report by Daily Mail on 16 December.


Britney Spears’ father has broken his silence on the conservatorship and its role in managing the pop icon. Speaking to Daily Mail on 16 December 2022, the singer’s father said that if it were not for the 13-year-old conservatorship, his daughter would have probably died.

It has since been over a year since the conservatorship lapsed in September 2021 which gave Jamie total power over Britney’s personal and financial life, BBC reported.

According to the report, conservatorship is granted by the court for individuals who are unable to make their own decisions due to illnesses like dementia or other mental illnesses. Britney’s conservatorship was split into two parts – one for her estate and financial affairs, the other for her as a person. Britney’s father was in charge of both.

Jamie admits that the conservatorship was necessary for making sure the pop star’s life was to some degree taken care of despite her spiralling out of control during some dark times. The star’s father claimed that the intervention not only saved Britney from herself but also managed to keep somewhat of a relationship between the mother of two and her teenage children whom she shared with ex-husband and former background dancer Kevin Federline.

In 2008, the Oops, I did it again singer’s network was around $50 million and Jamie was paid $16 000 in handling it. In those years, the singer toured and even had a residency in Las Vegas. Jamie looked after Britney’s toddlers with Federline. During this time, Britney had been photographed bald after she shaved off her hair; reported to have hit a photographer’s car with an umbrella and was also admitted to the hospital for substance abuse.

‘It’s been one hell of a time. But I love my daughter with all my heart and soul. Where would Britney be right now without that conservatorship? And I don’t know if she’d be alive. I don’t,” Daily Mail quoted Jamie as saying.

The pop icon’s father shared that he had to do whatever it took to protect his daughter even if it cost him his relationship with her. He said that they had gone through difficult times.

Jamie remained guarded on the #FreeBritney movement of which he dismissed the campaign as “a joke”, saying that the online campaign was merely based on conspiracy theories. The movement not only accused Jamie of controlling every aspect of Britney’s life but also of bugging her phone and keeping her in a mental facility. Celebs such as Madonna, Miley Cyrus and Paris Hilton were among high profile celebs who supported the movement.

Since the ending of the conservatorship, Britney has been showing off half-naked pictures and dancing almost nude online. Jamie expressed that the conservatorship is the reason the star was able to have custody of her children and fears that the posts could send her back “further down the hole”.

The star’s 70-year-old father said that he had not spoken to the Toxic singer nor had he seen his grandchildren whom he helped Britney raise, and missed them dearly.


According to the report, Jamie said:

“God makes things happen for a reason. I don’t know what that reason is but it’s been a tough three years without them. The family’s a mess. All we can do is keep praying.”

Jamie shared that Britney’s boys, Sean and Jayden were with him for over a decade and that they were his closest grandkids.

“There’s so much s**t going on on the outside of my relationship with the boys. Sometimes I think the boys are used as a pawn, and I ain’t gonna have that,” the report quoted Jamie as saying.

According to TMZ, when asked whether he thought that the conservatorship went on for too long, Jamie said he was unable to answer that question, and advised people to access the current situation and make their own judgements on that regard.
