Washington: Britney Spears reportedly wants to stop being under the conservatorship of her father and resume control of her life.
Control of the 30-year-old singer’s affairs was placed in the hands of father Jamie Spears following her 2008 public meltdown, and has remained that way ever since.
The ‘Toxic’ hitmaker, who has sons Sean Preston, six, and Jayden, five, with ex-husband Kevin Federline, apparently feels she is ready to take the charge of her affairs back in her hands.
“Britney has said that she feels she is ready to resume control of her life,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“She has expressed this sentiment on multiple occasions, but her doctor believes that Britney isn’t ready for the conservatorship to be lifted. She has come a very long way in the last 18 months especially but her team wants more time.
“She just wants to be able to call her own shots,” the source said.
But the insider doesn’t believe that the ‘Hold It Against Me’ hit maker will get her own way any time soon, despite her engagement to former manager Jason Trawick and a possible ‘X Factor’ deal.
“It looks like it won’t be ending anytime soon, but Britney feels that she is powerless to fight it,” the source said.
“She has been on two wildly successful worldwide concert tours, has gotten engaged, and is now in talks to join a major television show, what more does she have to do to prove to people that she is ready to resume control of her life?
“Britney has been told Jamie’s lawyers could petition the judge for the conservatorship to end later this year and not anytime sooner,” the source added.
