Earlier this year, after news of the conservatorship once again rose to the spotlight, Jamie Spears filed a petition to have the conservatorship ended and said that he would be stepping down as the conservator. Since then, Britney Spears’ legal team has filed to remove Spears’ father from his role immediately while the process of ending the conservatorship begins. The Los Angeles Superior Court is set to address both petitions during the hearing next week, as well as likely outline what a potential end to the conservatorship would look like.
