Biggest Revelations in Framing Britney Spears Documentary
The Most Heartbreaking Revelations From the Framing Britney Spears Documentary
- Britney Spears wants her father to step down as her conservator. Jamie Spears has served as the singer's conservator ever since she suffered her public breakdown in 2008, but according to lawyer Adam Streisand, she wants someone else be in charge of her money. "I got a call from Britney's family law attorneys and asked me if I would speak to Britney because, well, the whole world knew that her father was trying to establish a conservatorship over her," he recalled. "I met with Britney . . . And the first question I had was, 'Does Britney have the capacity to be able to hire me? Does she have the ability to take my advice?' The first thing is Britney was able to make the judgment, 'Hey, I get what's going on. I get that I'm not going to be able to resist this conservatorship or avoid this conservatorship," right? . . . The second thing was she said, 'I don't want my father to be the conservator.' That was her one request. She wanted a professional, somebody independent." To this day, Jamie has refused to step down.
- Jamie wasn't actively involved in Britney's life before he became her conservator. According to the people who participated in the documentary — which included the singer's former assistant Felicia Culotta and Jive Records executive Kim Kaiman — Britney's mother, Lynne Spears, was the one who mainly helped launch her career. In fact, Lynne personally reached out to Culotta and asked if she would chaperone Britney while she stayed home to take care of her younger daughter, Jamie Lynn Spears. "Her mother would do whatever it took, personally and for the family's sake, for Britney to be a star," Kaiman recalled. "Lynne supported Britney. I want to say Lynne because I never talked to her father. The only thing Jamie ever said to me was, 'My daughter's gonna be so rich, she's gonna buy me a boat.' That's all I'm gonna say about Jamie."
