Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears breaks silence after preservation period ends
Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, spoke publicly for the first time in over a decade this weekend — more than a year after the singer’s term ended.
In an interview with Sunday daily MailHe publicly addressed the court order and defended his role during his daughter’s 13-year guardianship. He also said that he did not know if she would survive without her.
Not everyone will agree with me, said Jimmy Spears. “It was hell at one time. But I love my daughter with all my heart and soul. Where would Britney be now without that guardianship? And I don’t know if she would survive. I don’t.”
The father said he “wouldn’t paint any pretty pictures,” but the court order protected Britney Spears through difficult times.
“For her protection and the protection of the children as well, preservation was a great tool. Without her, I don’t think she would have brought the children back.”
In November 2021, a Los Angeles judge granted a petition to end the arrangement during a hearing that lasted less than 30 minutes. This followed emotional testimony from Britney Spears that summer, in which she alleged the conservatorship was abusive and wanted it ended. After the testimony, the singer was allowed her own attorney for the first time, which led to an investigation into the alleged abuse.
Then, after more than a decade of the #FreeBritney movement and years of fans speculating that Britney Spears was unhappy, the singer was released from the court order.
Now, Britney Spears lives with her husband, model Sam Asgari, in Los Angeles. In April, she announced that she is expecting her first child with Asghari. The following month, Britney Spears revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage. She also has two sons, Jayden and Preston, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Jamie Spears lives with his other daughter, Jamie Lynn Spears, in rural Louisiana. He said daily Mail He should pay attention to what he says because he does not want to cause the singer any grief.
“I miss my two sons [Jayden and Preston] “Really, really bad,” said Jimmy Spears. “I do. You know, we were very, very close. They were at that age where you could have a good time with them. But they were developing their own mind. 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 is a mess. All we can do is keep praying.”
Britney Spears’ access to her two sons was also part of the custody. Although Federline was initially granted full custody of them, Jamie Spears said he came to an arrangement with Federline so they could spend time with their mother.
“They didn’t miss time with their mom. They didn’t miss time with their dad. Not many people knew that. The main goal was to get Britney back with her kids in a comfortable relationship. My relationship with Kevin gave them a sense of peace and protection. Kevin will tell you this too – we raised the kids.” I did what I was supposed to do or felt I needed to do.”
Jamie Spears also claims that the guardianship helped build his daughter’s finances because she “was broke” and “had no money at all.”
He added, “My understanding of guardianship is to help someone regain their life and return to society, and be able to live normally.” “I want to say I made a difference. There were a few people behind me who really helped me get to the point where we could help her.”
But from an outsider’s perspective, many disagreed. In January 2019, the singer canceled her second planned residency in Vegas amidst a hiatus. A few months later, she checked into a psychiatric facility, and fans soon began to speculate that her father admitted her against her will. The #FreeBritney movement also claimed the save was restricting the singer.
In response to the allegations, Jamie Spears said, “All I can say is that most people have no idea what the truth is.” Her lawyer has no clue about the truth. The media did not hear the truth. They have heard the allegations from Britney. I don’t mind taking that beating because I know it’s not right, and because I don’t want to start something else. So my daughter ends up going into the hole more often than she used to.”
