Britney Spears' father Jamie has filed a petition to end his daughter's conservatorship after 13 years.

The 39 year old Toxic singer's dad Jamie, 69, filed the papers to Los Angeles County Superior Court.

In the papers, Jamie wrote that his daughter is "is entitled to have this court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required".

Britney has been under a conservatorship for 13 years, which has seen her father oversee her life and finances, despite her protests.

Baby One More Time singer Britney has been on strike since 2019, and has refused to work in protest over Jamie acting as her conservator.

Singer Britney has sought to remove her father from her conservatorship twice throughout the years.

According to NBC news, the court filing reads: "The conservatorship has helped Ms. Spears get through a major life crisis, rehabilitate and advance her career, and put her finances and her affairs in order. But recently, things have changed.

"Ms. Spears is now outspoken in her frustration with the level of control imposed by a conservatorship, and has pleaded with this Court to 'let her have her life back."

The filing, according to BBC News, also referred to Britney's recent explosive speech in court, where the singer said Jamie "should be in jail" over her conservatorship.

It read: "Recent events related to this conservatorship have called into question whether circumstances have changed to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist."

The petition continued: "Ms Spears has told this Court that she wants control of her life back without the safety rails of a conservatorship."

Court papers added that Britney has expressed her wish to oversee her own medical and financial care.

It adds: "As Mr Spears has said again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter.

"If Ms Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr Spears believes that she should get that chance."

Britney's lawyer Mathew Rosengart labelled the latest filing from Jamie as a "vindication".

He said: "It appears that Mr. Spears believes he can try to avoid accountability and justice, including sitting for a sworn deposition and answering other discovery under oath, but as we assess his filing — which was inappropriately sent to the media before it was served on counsel — our investigation will continue."
