For quite awhile now, #FreeBritney has been trending with the life story of pop star Britney Spears being spotlighted.

Documentaries, discussions and speculations have been rife about her life and her father, Jamie Spear's role in her conservatorship.

Many have voiced their disbelief over the lack of control the pop icon has over her own life and have called for her to be "freed".

A conservatorship is “a court case where a judge appoints a responsible person or organisation (called the 'conservator') to care for another adult (called the 'conservatee') who cannot care for himself or herself or manage his or her own finances.”

Britney has been controlled by her father all this while
Despite Britney having been actively performing and touring, she has been deemed unfit to care for herself for the past 13 years.

In recent times, she has been outspoken about wanting her father to be removed from the conservatorship and even threatened to sue him for abuse of the terms.

According to several American news sites, if not the conservatorship, at least her father's role in it may end soon.

No definite timeline

Fans even staged protests
reported that Jamie has agreed to step down from his daughter’s conservatorship, but did not give a definite timeline as to when this will happen.

According to a court document Jamie reportedly filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court, he had said that he will cooperate with the court's procedures but did not specify when he will resign.

Jamie, however, does not seem to take any responsibilities over his actions, citing "public battle with his daughter" as the reason for him stepping down.

The celebrity magazine further reported that the court order stated that there are no actual grounds for suspending or removing Spears (Jamie) as the Conservator of the Estate.

Jamie Spears is willing to step down.
"And it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears’ best interests.

"Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests.

"So even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter’s new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator. As the Court has likely surmised, before Ms. Spears’ new attorney arrived, Mr. Spears had already been working on such a transition with Ms. Spears’ former court-appointed counsel, Sam Ingham," the court files reportedly read.

We do hope that Britney's father will step down soon and not drag the process!
