A judge has denied Britney Spears' request to remove her father Jamie Spears as her conservator.

Britney Spears requested private wealth management from the Bessemer Trust appointed as "sole conservator" in court filings dated 30th June by her lawyer Sam Ingham.

On Wednesday, judge Brenda Penny denied the request to end Britney's conservatorship, ruling: "The conservatee's request to suspend James P Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company Of California, NA as sole conservator of estate is denied without prejudice."

Jamie Spears, 68, filed his own court documents to investigate the claims his daughter made during her testimony, including that she was given medication without her consent.

His lawyer's said in the court filing that he was "concerned" by Sam Ingham's request to remove him as conservator to make the Bessamer Trust the sole conservator.

Jamie was then forced to split control with an attorney and a trust group in 2019. He also suggested that Jodi Montgomery - who was made co-conservator in 2019 and was in charge of Britney's medical and personal decisions - should be investigated.

Britney has been under a conservatorship since 2008 following admission into a psychiatric facility.

During her testimony last week, the mother-of-two claimed the conservatorship has prevented her from having her IUD removed to prevent her from having more children.

"I have an IUD in my body right now that won't let me have a baby and my conservators won't let me go to the doctor to take it out," she told the court. "I feel ganged up on. I feel bullied and I feel left out and alone."

"I want to be able to get married and have a baby," she added.

Her father, Jamie, will continue to have total stewardship over Britney's $60 million fortune as well as having had the power to make medical decisions and business deals on her behalf.
