A judge has denied a request from Britney Spears to remove her father from his role overseeing her conservatorship.

Britney Spears' lawyer, Samuel Ingham, asked a court in Los Angeles to remove Jamie Spears from his position managing her estate.

Ingham said the singer was scared of her father and wanted him out of the conservatorship that has controlled her life and career since 2008.

Back in February, Jamie Spears lost a bid to retain full rights over the singer's estate.

Private wealth management firm Bessemer Trust was appointed as a co-conservator along with Mr Spears.

In court filings, Britney Spears said she wanted Bessemer Trust appointed as "sole conservator."

However, documents filed in Los Angeles have emerged which show that Judge Brenda Penny refused the request.

Bessemer Trust’s role remains a co-conservator of the estate.

“The conservatee’s request to suspend James P Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company Of California, N.A. as sole conservator of estate is denied without prejudice,” the document says.

The filing was dated June 30th.

This comes a week after Britney Spears spoke out at a hearing regarding her conservatorship, which included shocking revelations about her career and personal life.

Yesterday, the singer took to Instagram to clap back at the paparazzi.
