Lynne had accompanied her ex to court when he first filed for and obtained the legal arrangement in February 2008, following Britney’s 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold.
That month, Britney left a hospital early after undergoing mental health treatment for a week. In a joint statement, Jamie and Lynne said they were “extremely disappointed” to learn of her release, adding, “We are deeply concerned about our daughter’s safety and vulnerability and we believe her life is presently at risk. The conservatorship orders that were in place to protect our daughter are being blatantly ignored.
In May 2019, after Britney underwent mental health treatment—and two months after Britney’s co-conservator Andrew Wallet resigned, leaving Jamie as the singer’s sole conservator for more than a year, Lynne filed a request asking to be informed of all matters pertaining to her daughter.
She and her younger child, Jamie Lynn Spears, also flew to Los Angeles, where Britney lives, “to try and figure out what’s really going on,” a source told CelebHomes News at the time.
In July, a month after the singer’s bombshell court testimony, her mother filed a declaration in support of her daughter and the star’s request to remove Jamie as conservator of her estate. Lynne wrote, “I became involved with this conservatorship in what I will call a ‘times of crisis’ that started at the end 2018 and continued into 2019.”
In her filing, she stated that she was involved because Britney didn’t want the conservatorship and that Britney’s feelings toward her dad have “dwindled” to “fear and hatred” because of his “complete command” over her.
