A month prior to her message, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge suspended her father, Jamie Spears, from his role as conservator of her estate on Sept. 29. Business owner, John Zabel, was appointed by the judge to temporarily take over Jamie’s role.
Following her father’s suspension, the musician—who wasn’t present for the court hearing—shared a series of photos and videos of her tropical getaway with Sam. She captioned her post, “A beautiful day here in paradise celebrating.”
At the time of the court hearing, Britney’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart, stated that he planned to file his own petition within the next two months to terminate the entire conservatorship.
Weeks before the judge suspended Jamie, his legal team had filed a petition to ask the court to choose whether to terminate the conservatorship of Britney’s person and estate. According to the documents obtained by E! News, his legal team maintained that the conservatorship helped his daughter “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.”
“As Mr. Spears has said again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter,” his filing stated. “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.”
