The attorney of Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, is defending his conservatorship over the pop star after the release of the documentary 'Framing Britney Spears'.
There has been renewed interest in the singer's court-ordered conservatorship and calls for her father, Jamie Spears, to step aside as co-conservator, reports CNN.
Through his attorney Vivian Lee Thoreen, Jamie Spears said he, too, wishes the conservatorship could come to an end.
"Jamie would love nothing more than to see Britney not need a conservatorship," Thoreen told CNN on Friday. "Whether or not there is an end to the conservatorship really depends on Britney. If she wants to end her conservatorship, she can file a petition to end it."
"Jamie is not suggesting that he is the perfect dad or that he would receive any 'Father of the Year' award. Like any parent, he doesn't always see eye-to-eye on what Britney may want. But Jamie believes every single decision he has made has been in her best interest," Thoreen added.
Jamie Spears was first appointed by a court to be co-conservator of Britney's estate and person in 2008, following a series of personal issues for the singer that played out publicly.
Britney Spears attorney Samuel D Ingham III filed to remove Britney's father as conservator last August.
During a hearing on the matter in November, Ingham said Britney was "afraid" of her father. The judge ruled to keep Spears as conservator and appointed Bessemer Trust to act as co-conservator of her $60 million estate.
The next court hearing in the conservatorship is scheduled for 17 March.
