The Los Angeles Superior Court ruled Monday that Britney Spears‘ father Jamie Spears will not act as her conservator until January 2020, TMZ reports.
The “Toxic” singer’s care manager, Jodi Montgomery, will take over Jamie’s previous responsibilities, which included overseeing Britney’s personal and financial affairs.
Jamie filed a request to temporarily relieve himself of his duties due to health reasons. Earlier this year, the 67-year-old battled a colon condition, which led Britney, 37, to postpone her Las Vegas residency and check into a mental health facility.
According to Montgomery’s website, she works as a private personal fiduciary, which can serve as trustees, estate administrators and conservators of the estate and person.
Jamie has acted as Britney’s conservator in the state of California as of 2008. This year, he filed to extend his conservatorship to Britney’s home state of Louisiana and mentioned plans to do the same for Hawaii and Florida.
However, Jamie requested to have Montgomery take over following an altercation with his 13-year-old grandson Sean Preston.
Federline’s rep told People, “There was a disagreement that occurred while Britney and the children were visiting with Jamie at his home that led to a physical altercation that was observed by [their other son] Jayden. Britney did the right thing and removed the children and took them out of there, but the trauma to the kids is nonetheless.”
