Britney Spears Voicemail About Her Father's Conservatorship Leaked

Is It Time For Britney to Move On From Jamie's Conservatorship?

As Britney Spears continues to keep busy on her tour, a recent voicemail from the pop star regarding her conservatorship and custody of her boys was leaked on the Internet. The message was supposedly recorded on Jan. 21, and it sounds like it was left for lawyers who are handling her case. She said:

"Hi my name's Britney Spears, I called you earlier. I'm calling again because I just wanted to make sure, during the process of eliminating my conservatorship, that my father has threatened me several times that, you know, he'll take my children away. I just want to be guaranteed that everything will be fine with the process of you guys taking care of everything, and things just being the same as far as my custodial time. That's it, bye."

Jamie is still intervening on Brit's behalf in her business and personal life, but now that the singer is back on track it sounds like she's ready to take responsibility for herself again. What do you think — is it time for Britney to move on from Jamie's conservatorship?

I think Britney needed to quit everything but her children for a few years. I still don't think she's truly happy but hey that's not for me to judge.

omg, coulty45 haha...I'll never get that soundbyte out of my head. I don't think she's quite ready for this conservatorship to dissolve yet, but what the hell do I know?

Whole thing is dubious. Source is JFX, Adnan's paparzzi agency. Doesn't really sound like her.

For one, that message might have written for her. It might not even be her words. Also she might not have gotten this far (touring and all) without her dad's help. Hopefully he's got her best interest at heart. I hate that this was leaked. So much for privacy.

With someone who has hit rock bottom as she has, I don't think the focus should be on whether or not Britney is ready, but what is in the best interest of the children. If she feels like she is ready to stand on her own two legs, good for her, but there needs to be continuous monitoring of the situation. Start with baby steps.

I think only Britney can answer that question.

Whoever leaked this (if it's really Britney) will be out of a job.

i don't know but lately it seems the drama going on in her life has Jamie's name attached 95 % of the time

Just because she's not doing great doesn't mean her dad should have control. She's not mentally incompetent and is an adult. Adults screw up all the time and are allowed to be in charge of themselves. This is ridiculous. Her mental break was like 2 years ago or something.

I'm kind of surprised to see some people say that it's her choice to fall apart and lose her kids. She's mentally ill. Given that & the decisions she made in the past, it would seem that it's better for all involved for her father to continue to be her conservator for the time being.

I think her dad is parenting her now in the way she needed to be parented as a child and teenager. Some may say it's too late, but if she were my adult child, I would hope to be able to do the same, to help her learn how to live in a way that makes any sense at all after so many years of excess and (literal) insanity. It would be one thing to allow her to sink on her own, but it's too soon to let her loose on two innocent children again - two children who have already been traumatized by her inability to control herself. I don't think she's a bad person, and I believe she'll get it together completely at some point, but it seems a little soon to me.

I think it is too soon : I said maybe - she needs to fall back and take it easy. I understand she wants more freedom and to be w. her kids but she must realize that it has to be a very slow transition. She does seem to be doing well but I think she needs more time to really get it together for herself and then be a mom to her children.

i think is a little too early for to e independent again but you never know. the message sound is fake.

I think maybe in a year or so. She thinks she is okay but she really isn't. I love what her father did that was the best step he took. It shows true love for his daughter!!she may think he is crazy for now but later on she will realise and appreciate him more when she is older. I a so scarred that that Sam Lufti will come right back. Daddy knows best.

Sounds like a lie. *Confidentiality (it's a new idea) is taken very seriously in law firms. On another note: she did it to herself so why should we feel sorry for her. If she's irresponsible that's for the court to decide, not the public.

It's her kids, she's a grown woman and she has so much money. Let her have her kids. Worst comes to worst, she won't have time for them and she will hire a nanny. There are WORST mothers we should be worrying about out there.

I agree with Hausfrau & Tiabia, that does not sound like Britney.

She needs to learn how to be a strong independent person all over again.
jdmxrain jdmxrain 8 years
She just needs how to be a strong independent person all over again and I believe that anyone can do this. Her parents aren't going to be around forever taking care of her. What will happen when they die? Then Britney will need to take care of herself and not let anyone take advantage of her. I think that her family probably doesn't want their meal ticket gone and its sad that she can't have control over her own life.

Listening to that message made me just really really sad. Honestly, Britney is a grown woman and whether or not we like it, she has gotten her life under control and I don't think that her father should really be allowed to have that control over her. If she wasn't Britney Spears she would NEVER be in this situation because the law would recognize that as long as she was complying with everything her father couldn't keep controlling her indefinitely.

Gosh, personally I'm on the fence (esp. since I'm so happy to not have to hear about her going nutso in the news for awhile now and I Kind of 'thanked' the dad for helping with that). Most likely if she got away from the conservatory arrangement, she'll self-destruct again, but she's an adult. She may lose custody completely again, and it's going to be her fault, again, it's still her choice. Sad, but that's how things are. The only reason I'm not too happy about the possibility of the conservatory being over is that I may have to bear with news of her going cuckoo again and again. The paparazzi is going to circle her around like vultures, then again, she most likely will be providing the juicy materials for 'em anyway. Ugh.

i think in order to maintain her custody arrangement that she should still be monitored to make sure she keeps up with her mental health counseling/medication. but thats it! as far as the rest of it, her father has NO business ruling over her like he does now. if left to her own devices she may self-destruct, but you know what, this is america. she has the RIGHT to make bad decisions. you cant just take away someones complete freedom because of it. and if she looses custody again, then its completely her fault. but its her choice.
