Britney Spears’ father is questioning the pop superstar’s mental capacity to understand “the consequences” of his request to release key documents in his fight for protection.
The hitmaker Toxic has been fighting for months to end Jamie Spears’ role as sole curator of his property, recently suggesting that he should work alongside the Bessemer Trust Company’s financial management organization officials, giving them power of attorney to control his. business.
As part of her legal challenge, she asks the judge to open a number of documents, including those regarding her medical records, making them available for public viewing – a move Jamie insists should remain private for the sake of Britney and her two children. .
She is now asking court officials to determine that the singer has “the ability to understand the consequences of her renunciation” to keep her files under wraps, TMZ reports.
Jamie also notes that the guardianship, which has been in place since 2008, following Britney’s much-publicized breakdown, is voluntary and has not yet asked for it to be stopped.
She explains that the finances of her daughter’s estate are “inextricably intertwined” with the personal aspects of her guardianship and disclosing certain documents could expose sensitive medical information.
Her latest filing comes days after Britney’s attorney released a statement denying there was anything to protect from the public.
“Britney claims that there are no medical problems or sensitive issues with her children to protect, so there is no reason to keep the hearing a secret,” the lawyer explained. “Britney herself vehemently opposes her father’s attempt to keep his legal struggle hidden in the closet as a family secret.”
