Taking a step back. Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, requested to “temporarily relinquish the powers of conservatorship” after an alleged altercation with her son Preston, according to court documents obtained by Us Weekly.
Jamie, 67, cited “personal health reasons” as the reason for his legal filing. He suggested Britney’s care manager, Jodi Montgomery, assume the position until at least January 20, 2020.
The news comes days after Us confirmed that Britney’s sons, Preston, 13, and Jayden, 12, were granted a temporary restraining order against their grandfather over the alleged incident in August. The order, which Jamie did not oppose, prohibits the pop star’s father from having contact with Preston and Jayden for three years, according to a source.
