A court filing revealed that her father would not be taken off his role of overseeing her conservatorship.

Britney's lawyer Samuel Ingham asked the LA court yesterday to remove Jamie Spears from his role in managing her property and life.

He revealed to a court last November that the singer was scared of her dad, who has been in charge of the conservatorship that has controlled her life since 2008.

On Wednesday, the judge refused Britney's request, saying: "The conservatee's request to suspend James P Spears… is denied without prejudice."

Jamie has also requested an investigation into Britney's claims that she has been abused under this conservatorship after she revealed she has not been allowed to make her own medical decisions.

Legal consultants for her father said that he was upset after hearing of his daughter's suffering and "believes there must be an investigation into those claims."

Britney was hospitalised after a mental health episode and placed in rehab, when her father petitioned the court for a temporary conservatorship, back in 2008.

While addressing the court to request her father's removal, Britney revealed that she had been forced to take lithium, forced to get an IUD inserted and was forced back into rehab in 2018 after standing up to her father.

Jamie is currently in control of his daughter's finances, giving her an allowance each week, while he also had control of her personal life up until 2019.

Britney has been fighting against this hold over her life, and has been trying to prevent her father gaining control over her personal life again since last year.

Telling the Los Angeles court that she couldn't sleep, is depressed, and had lied about her happiness for the past 13 years, Britney gave a plea regarding her desired end to the agreement. “It is my wish and dream for all of this to end. I want my life back," she said.
