Britney Spears’ dad Jamie says her conservatorship is ‘no one else’s business’ and #FreeBritney movement ‘is a joke’

BRITNEY Spears' dad Jamie says her conservatorship is "no one else's business" and #FreeBritney movement "is a joke".

The online movement has expressed increasing concerns over the legal guardianship contract, which lets Jamie Spears have complete control of her fiances and decision-making.

However, Jamie has spoken out against the fans and labels the online movement "a joke".

He told Page Six: "All these conspiracy theorists don't know anything. The world don't have a clue.

"It's up to the court of California to decide what's best for my daughter. It's no one else's business."

He also vehemently denied he was taking money from Britney's estate.

Jamie continued: "I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year. How the hell would I steal something?"

As well as condemning the "aggressiveness" of #FreeBritney movement, he concluded: "I love my daughter. I love all my kids. But this is our business. It's private."

Since 2008 Britney has been subject to a legal “conservatorship” — making her dad Jamie her legal guardian, with direct control over her financial affairs and daily life.

But the arrangement — brought in to protect her mental health after her infamous 2007 breakdown — has left many of her fans believing that the 38-year-old star deserves to go “free”.

More than 220,000 have joined the #FreeBritney movement, claiming their idol is sending them hidden messages on social media, letting them know she is in trouble.

As her conservator, 68-year-old Jamie’s tasks include overseeing Britney’s business affairs, some personal assets, legal matters and family law issues.

He also negotiated his daughter’s 2012 stint as a judge on the US X Factor series.

The conservator role is up for review on August 22 and Britney's fans hope she will be "freed" from the legal arrangement then.

Last month, Britney's brother Bryan Spears revealed in a rare interview that his younger sister "always wanted" to get out of the conservatorship.

On Thursday, the film producer told the As Not Seen on TV podcast: “[Britney’s] always wanted to get out of [the conservatorship]. It’s very frustrating to have.

“Whether someone’s coming in peace to help or coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating,” he added.

Speaking of the social media movement that has trended online in recent weeks to support the Toxic singer, Bryan said: “I am aware that [fans] feel like maybe she’s being confined or held against her will in some capacity.

"But I can’t really speak for them,” he said.

The Louisiana native then noted that the conservatorship has “been a great thing for our family, to this point, and [we] keep hoping for the best.”
