Britney Spears‘ lawyer plans to file a petition to make the singer’s current “care manager” and temporary conservator Jodi Montgomery, a permanent conservator, the singer’s court-appointed attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, said during a brief court hearing Wednesday.
Spears’ father Jamie stepped down from his role as the star’s personal conservator in 2019 due to health issues and a professional conservator, Montgomery, temporarily replaced him.
The petition, which will be addressed during an April 27 hearing, will request to have Montgomery appointed to the permanent conservator of Spears’ person while it remained unclear if the role would also fulfill the needs of her estate. Currently, both Jamie and Bessemer Trust oversee Spears’ estate while Montgomery currently acts as Spears’ “care manager.”
Meanwhile, Wednesday’s accounting hearing was set to see the pop superstar’s co-conservators of her estate — Jamie and new party Bessemer Trust — detail Spears’ finances to the court.
