Britney Spears’ father said in a court filing Thursday that he is planning to step down from the conservatorship that has controlled her life and money for 13 years, but his departure is not imminent.
James Spears filed legal documents saying he will step down after several lingering issues are resolved. The document gives no timetable for his resignation from his role helping oversee his daughter’s finances.
Those matters include the next judicial review of the pop singer’s finances, which has been delayed by months of public and legal wrangling over James Spears' role and the legitimacy of the conservatorship.
