Britney Spears’ former estate manager Andrew Wallet may regain co-conservatorship control

Britney Spears’ former estate manager Andrew Wallet may regain co-conservatorship control alongside the 38-year-old singer’s father Jamie Spears.

According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Jamie ‘filed a petition with the Superior Court of California’ to reinstate the Camarillo-based lawyer as co-conservator on Britney’s estate on Tuesday.

Andrew, who resigned voluntarily as Britney’s co-conservator in March of 2019, reportedly ‘signed an affidavit saying that he is consenting to act as the co-conservator again with Jamie.’

The documents noted that that there would be a ‘hearing on this motion on September 16.’

The court documents obtained by Us Weekly on Thursday also provided the total of Britney’s ‘various investment accounts and assets,’ which happened to be ‘$57.4 million as of December 31, 2019.’ 

As for the Womanizer songstress’ cash assets, the total was cited as $2.7 million.   

In February of 2008, Jamie and Andrew gained control over Britney’s estate. This occurred shortly after the singer had her public breakdown.

Over eight-years later on March 4, 2019, Andrew voluntarily relinquished his control and ‘requested to dissolve his powers as quickly as possible,’ according to court documents at the time.

‘The conservatorship is engaged in numerous ongoing business activities requiring immediate attention and it therefore is in the best interest of the conservatee that the acceptance of Wallet’s resignation and the issuance of amended letters of conservatorship of the estate occur immediately and without delay,’ court documents read at the time.

‘Substantial detriment, irreparable harm and immediate danger will result to the conservatee and her estate if the relief requested herein in not granted on an ex parte basis,’ the documents concluded. 

Six-months after Andrew left the picture, Jamie stepped back from his role as sole conservatorship due to alleged ‘personal health reasons’ and Britney’s care manager Jodi Montgomery temporarily took over the responsibility. 

Despite the state of her conservatorship remaining unchanged due to a court hearing on Wednesday, Britney Spears went on to express her thanks for fans for their support on Instagram.

While she made no direct mention of the ongoing legal drama, fans were left puzzled by her decision to share a video in which she listed some of her favorite things, and claiming that’s what commenters were asking her about.

In the caption alongside the video, Britney continued on her theme from earlier in the day, about how quarantine during the pandemic is proving a learning experience. 

She wrote: ‘feel like we will look back at this time in quarantine as a huge transitional stage in our lives ….. we don’t know when things will go back to normal but we are staying positive and learning so much about ourselves !!!!’

She then expressed her gratitude to her many supporters.

‘For me I want to thank all my dear … sweet … real fans for being so damn wonderful !!!,’ the pop star shared. ‘I can feel your hearts and I know you can feel mine … thank you for your support !!!’

But her fans were quick to comment on the clip and how it struck a somewhat bizarre chord.  

‘Girl, no one is asking that,’ one fan posted.

‘These are definitely not the questions people are asking,’ another wrote.

One commenter suggested the questions were from way back in 1999, while others asked the star: ‘are u ok?’

Britney suffered a setback when no action was taken in her legal case to have her father Jamie removed as her conservator at a court hearing in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

BUt she had started her day Thursday, in a philosophical mood as she posted to her Instagram.

Alongside a close-up photo of her hand holding a tiny daisy, the pop princess spoke about finding comfort in ‘old traditions’ and ‘spending more time meditating and praying’.

She began her post with: ‘It’s the little things … and I have no idea what I was thinking when I got a freaking black ink triangle on my right hand !!!!’

Britney, 38, went on: ‘During this time of quarantine I really feel like making homemade bread  … hanging my clothes outside to dry …. not being on my phone so much … spending more time meditating and praying …. and really finding my inner grace !!!’

‘Going back to the old traditions and understanding life has way more meaning …. also living for the beautiful surprises life is guaranteed to give !!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!!’

She made no mention of Wednesday’s court hearing.

Odd: A couple of hours later, she shared more photos to Instagram, which appear to be old pics she's previously shared, prompting fans to express renewed concern for her welfare

A couple of hours later, she shared another two photos to Instagram, which appear to be old pics she’s previously shared in which she’s wearing a blue and white patterned peasant’s blouse and light makeup. 

This time, her fans and #FreeBritney supporters commented about how they’d seen the pictures before and why wasn’t she posting new ones, and expressing concern for her welfare.

It feeds into the conspiracy theory that the hitmaker is being held ‘hostage’ by her caretakers and that her posts are being faked to try and persuade people that she is okay.

This has led to online petitions, social media posts and protests calling for her to be ‘freed’.

Her dad Jamie described the campaign as ‘a joke’ in an interview with PageSix.com earlier this month and said the conspiracy theorists ‘don’t have a clue’.

On Wednesday, Britney’s childhood friend Jason Alexander, whom she wed in Las Vegas in January 2004 only for the marriage to be annulled 55 hours later, claimed to have insight into her life.

Jason joined fans for a #FreeBritney rally outside the downtown LA courthouse where her hearing about her conservatorship was being held.

He said he had been in contact with Britney via text message Tuesday night and said she wants the conservatorship to end.

 ‘She does get to do things, you know go to a vacation for a week, but it’s all supervised. It’s not like she can just go do what she wants,’ Jason said.

‘She’s ready for this to be over with, it’s holding her back,’ he added. ‘It’s really sad because it’s affecting her relationship with her kids and people like me and her friends that she’d like to hang out with but she can’t.’

Britney was made the subject of a conservatorship in 2008 following her high profile breakdown and mental health crisis.

The legal move gave her father control over her estate and finances as well as giving him the authority to make decisions on her behalf regarding her welfare.

In her legal battle, Britney is asking a judge to allow her temporary care manager Jodi Montgomery, who took over last year when her dad became ill, to continue permanently in that role. 

Court documents filed by her attorney stated that she ‘strongly opposes’ her dad Jamie continuing as sole conservator.

However, Wednesday’s hearing adjourned without any changes being made, according to TMZ.

The outlet reported that the hearing was simply a status conference and nothing can proceed through the legal system until certain documents are filed with the court.

According to TMZ, there’s a conservatorship in place because it’s been deemed that Britney is incapable of making life decisions for herself due to mental illness. And that will remain the case until and if a declaration to the contrary is accepted by the court.

Status quo: The court hearing adjourned without any changes being made. It's reported that nothing can proceed through the legal system until certain documents are filed with the court because it's been deemed Britney is incapable of making decisions due to mental illness
