It's been a tumultuous couple of weeks for Spears. Earlier this week, her father, Jamie Spears, temporarily stepped down as her conservator after previously petitioning the court to hand over the reins, citing ongoing health issues. A judge approved the request on Monday and appointed Spears' longtime care manager, Jodi Montgomery, as her new conservator, according to legal documents.
The legal filing came after Spears and Federline's sons were granted a temporary restraining order against Jamie. A source told Entertainment Tonight that an incident occurred on Aug. 24 in which Jamie allegedly "engaged in conduct that was physical abuse" toward Sean. The next day, Federline and his divorce attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, filed a police report at the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.
According to Kaplan, "Britney recognized the children were in a dangerous situation and she demonstrated the correct parental judgment by removing them from it."0comments
A source told Us Weekly that Spears believes that her custody of the boys could be "in jeopardy."
"Britney’s mental condition before the incident was fragile at best," the source said, adding that she is "furious" with her father, and "extremely distraught" over the matter. "Her biggest fear has always been losing custody of her boys,” a second insider went on to share, “and now she feels that Jamie may have put her in jeopardy as a result of his actions."
