According to new reports, Bessemer Trust, the company that has been serving as the pop star’s co-conservator alongside her father, Jamie Spears, has decided to officially withdraw after her public testimony. As it turns out, they want to respect Britney Spears’ wishes, as opposed to her own dad, and give the pop star the freedom she wants to have.
That’s right! Bessemer Trust has voluntarily pulled out of the agreement after hearing Britney’s pleas to be released from her 13 years long conservatorship even though the court decided that she is to remain under it.
In an official statement released via The New York Times, the wealth management firm stressed that they respect the singer’s request.
‘As a result of the conservatee’s testimony at the recent hearing, however, the Petitioner has become aware the Conservatee objects to the continuance of the Conservatorship and desires to terminate the conservatorship. Petitioner has, therefore, heard the Conservatee and respects her wishes,’ the company’s court filing reads.
Bessemer has been filling this role alongside Britney’s father only since November of 2020 and was added in an attempt to reach a compromise with Britney who has been begging for the court to remove Jamie Spears as her conservator.
Instead of doing that, a judge decided to have him share the role with the said company.
But Britney is obviously still miserable and during her first public testimony about it, she opened up, calling the conservatorship ‘abusive’ and even comparing her dad to a ‘sex trafficker’ in the way that he is so controlling over her life.
Regardless, in the end, Judge Brenda J. Penny denied her request on June 30, much to Britney’s disappointment.
Now that Bessemer is resigning, things might become even more complicated as far as escaping her dad’s control is concerned! Hopefully, the #FreeBritney movement will soon become a reality for the beloved pop star!
