Britney Spears has pinned her hopes on her care manager Jodi Montgomery who will replace her father Jamie Spears as her curator and believes things can be straightened out if she is successful.
The 39-year-old pop superstar not only ‘trusts’ Montgomery to take over her conservatorship, but insiders say her life would ‘change drastically for the better’ if her father were removed, Page six reported Thursday.
The boost of confidence in her favorite curatorial candidate comes after Spears’s attorney petitioned Montgomery to take over her father’s conservatorship, TMZ reported earlier this week.

An insider told before Us weekly that Britney probably wouldn’t have an all-in-one interview.
“ The report about Britney considering a tell-all is hugely exaggerated and essentially gives false hope to the fans who tweeted about it after the interview with Harry and Meghan, ” the source said.
“Britney is eager to tell her story and has always wanted to write a memoir, but the conservatorship makes that difficult and it’s not right on her radar anyway.”
Another source said she might be interested in sharing her story, but not on television.
Britney hasn’t mentioned conducting an interview. She would like to say something and could do so with the help of social media [boyfriend Sam ] on its platforms if it needs to be this emergency for her, ‘explained the second insider, adding,’ She doesn’t want to be filtered. ‘

Jamie has had almost complete control of his daughter’s estate since 2008, when the conservatorship was instituted in the wake of Britney’s mental health crises in 2007 and 2008.
Montgomery, who is currently Spear’s healthcare manager, temporarily took over as curator in 2019, when her father had to step down due to health issues.
Although he has returned to work, he now shares responsibility for her finances with Bessemer Trust.
Britney could make headway in her efforts to fire her father from running her estate, as TMZ reported that Jamie is not against resigning in favor of Montgomery.
