  • A judge has ruled Jamie Spears and financial company Bessemer Trust will remain as Britney Spears' co-conservators.
  • This after Jamie's lawyer, Vivian Thoreen, objected to sharing the conservatorship power.
  • The ruling comes following the November 2020 court proceedings, after which the popstar said she would not perform again if her father was to remain in charge of her career.

A judge has rejected Jamie Spears' plea to be Britney's sole conservator.

In November 2020, despite Britney's wish for her father to be removed and prevented from having control over her personal and financial decisions, Judge Brenda Penny ruled he was to remain co-conservator, along with financial company Bessemer Trust - the latter at the singer's request.

On Thursday, the Los Angeles Superior Court Judge ruled the wealth management and investment advisory firm in California would continue to be co-conservator, rejecting objections raised by Jamie's lawyer, Vivian Thoreen, on how the co-conservatorship should be delegated.

According to People, objections over language in a proposed order of co-conservatorship filed by Samuel D. Ingram III, Britney's attorney, were also denied.

Britney, at the time of the November hearing, said she would not perform again if her father was to remain in charge of her career.

"My client has warned me that she is afraid of her father," Britney's lawyer said.

The latest court proceedings come as the New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears makes headlines, while the pop star herself has broken her silence on social media.

She wrote on Instagram on Tuesday: "Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person's life, it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens."
