A judge on Wednesday denied a request to remove Britney Spears’ father as the conservator of her estate.
Spears' request to suspend James P. Spears immediately upon the appointment of a financial institution as sole conservator of estate "is denied without prejudice," the Los Angeles Superior Court ruled.
Spears, 39, has been under a legal conservatorship involving her father for over a decade.
