AceShowbiz - Britney Spears' father is hoping to temporarily step down as the singer's conservator to focus on his health.
Jamie Spears has filed documents requesting a break from his responsibilities regarding his daughter's welfare, and offering up his replacement, who will oversee Britney's affairs between now and January (2020), according to TMZ.
He has cited "personal health reasons" as the reason behind his bid, and he wants his sidekick, Jodi Montgomery, to take the role of temporary conservator, giving her the power to "restrict or limit visitors by any means, the power to retain caretakers and security for Britney on a 24-hour basis, the power to prosecute civil harassment restraining orders, and the power to communicate with expert medical personnel regarding Britney and to have full access to her medical and psychiatric records."
A hearing into the conservatorship switch has been set for Monday, September 9.
The news comes days after Jamie's former son-in-law, Kevin Federline, filed a restraining order against him on behalf of the sons he shares with ex-wife Britney, claiming their grandfather was involved in a physical altercation with 13-year-old Sean Preston last month (August 2019).
Child protection officials have launched an investigation into the alleged incident.
