Britney Spears’ father Jamie P. Spears has agreed to step down as the pop star’s curator once a suitable plan is in place, Fox News can confirm.
The two have been locked in a legal battle over the past few years as the singer struggles to regain control of her life.
“The mandate of this Court, as it is for Mr. Spears, is to act in the best interests of the Tory, Ms. Spears,” read court documents obtained by Fox News Thursday. “To do this, the Court must have precise and substantiated facts on which it can rule. Mr. Spears will do his best to provide the factual basis this Court needs and to cooperate in the transition to a new Curator.

“When these matters are resolved, Mr. Spears will be in a position to step aside,” the memorandum continued while vehemently stating, “there are no urgent circumstances justifying the immediate suspension of Mr. Spears.”
“Given the real facts and the real circumstances that currently exist, an orderly, cooperative transition would most certainly be in Ms. Spears’ best interests,” he adds. “Regardless of his official title, Mr. Spears will always be Ms. Spears’ father, he will always love her unconditionally, and he will always look out for her best interests.”
WHAT LYNNE SPEARS SAID ABOUT BRITNEY’S CONSERVATORSHIP
Jamie resigned after Spears claimed she wanted to accuse her father of “conservation abuse” in early July.
“I’m here to get rid of my father and accuse him of abuse of guardianship,” Spears said of his father at the last guardianship hearing.
In a statement obtained by Fox News, Rosengart said the star’s legal team was “happy” with Jamie’s decision to step down.
“This is a major victory for Britney Spears and another step towards justice,” the statement read. “I announced in court on July 14 that after 13 years of standstill it was time for Mr Spears to be suspended or removed as a Tory and for my cabinet and I to act aggressively and swiftly for this result. .
“Twelve days later, my cabinet filed a motion for the suspension and removal of Mr. Spears on solid and insurmountable legal grounds, which were unequivocally supported by the law and all parties involved, including Jodi Montgomery , Britney Spears and her medical team, ”it continued. “We are pleased that Mr. Spears and his attorney today admitted in a case that it must be withdrawn. We are however disappointed by their shameful and reprehensible attacks underway against Ms. Spears and others.”
“We look forward to continuing our thorough investigation into the conduct of Mr. Spears and others over the past 13 years as he raised millions of dollars from his daughter’s estate, and I look forward to to take Mr. Spears’ affidavit in the near future, “the statement added.
“In the meantime, rather than making false accusations and bashing his own daughter, Mr. Spears should remain silent and step aside immediately,” he concluded.
