E! News reached out to Jamie’s attorney, Vivian Lee Thoreen, for comment and has not heard back. In court, Vivian told the judge Jamie will not be stepping down. She said Britney’s testimony includes some “misstatements” that should be looked into.
Last month, Jamie filed a petition to have the court investigate the allegations his daughter made during her June 23 testimony. He said he is “concerned about the management and care of his daughter,” as he has not overseen her personal or medical affairs since 2019. At that point, Jodi Montgomery was made temporary conservator of her person.
On Wednesday, the judge extended Jodi’s role into October 2021, and Britney said that if she can’t end the conservatorship, she wants Jodi to stay on board as long as her dad is removed. Jodi’s lawyer noted she looks forward to working with Britney, after saying in a July 6 statement that her client “remains committed to steadfastly supporting” the Grammy winner.
As Vivian shared last month, “Mr. Spears is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain.” The lawyer’s statement continued, “Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much.”
Brit’s next hearing is Sept. 29.
