Jamie Spears was removed from his daughter Britney’s conservatorship, and he has now spoken out about the situation. Spears’ lawyer, Vivian L. Thoreen, said in a statement to the press that he “loves his daughter Britney unconditionally” and that he “has tried to do what is in her best interests, whether as a conservator or her father, for thirteen years.” “This began with me agreeing to serve as her conservator when she voluntarily entered into the conservatorship,” the statement continued. This included assisting her in resurrecting her career and re-establishing contact with her children. Anyone who has tried to assist a family member with mental health issues understands the enormous amount of daily worry and work that this entails. Mr. Spears had to hold his tongue and not respond to all of the false, speculative, and unsubstantiated attacks on him by members of the public, the media, and, most recently, Britney’s own attorney. These facts make the hearing’s outcome all the more disappointing, and frankly, a loss for Britney. ”
