Even without a pandemic, 2020 has been a tumultuous year for Britney Spears, who’s been fighting to remove her father, Jamie Spears, as her conservator. The pop stars fans have rallied behind her in support often using the hashtag #FreeBritney.
Along with a video the star posted “As you all know ... 2020 was a challenging year for us all,” Spears continued by saying. “Thank you to my amazing fans that have given me so much support!!!! I’m grateful for you and thank you!!!!”
She ended by joking, “Who knows ... with all this time on my hands during quarantine I might even become a doctor,” before adding, “KIDDING.”
Spears has vowed not to perform again until Jamie is removed as her conservator, it was revealed during a November hearing. He’s been in the role for 12 years, taking over running her $60 million business empire after her 2007 breakdown, but their relationship has imploded, with her attorney telling the judge she “will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career” as they have no "viable working relationship.” Further, she’s “afraid of her father” and they have not spoken in a "long while.”
Spears’s mother, Lynne Spears, said the relationship between Britney and her ex-husband Jamie is “toxic” — yes, like Britney’s 2003 hit song — and her daughter is basically being forced to go on strike while she waits for her dad to step down. However, the judge kept Jamie in his role — along with new co-conservator Bessemer Trust — though the arrangement can be revisited in the new year.
