Los Angeles court rules: Britney Spears' father remains her guardian

A Los Angeles court has rejected Britney Spears' request to remove her father from the legal guardianship she has been under since 2008 due to psychological problems and which gives him control over her affairs, US media reported Thursday.


Wednesday's Los Angeles Superior Court ruling follows a request filed in September by Britney Spears' attorney to add the wealth management company Bessemer Trust to the guardianship and remove the singer's father, Jamie Spears, from it, CNN reports.


The request to suspend James P. Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company of California as sole guardian of the estate is denied, Judge Brenda Penny said, according to court documents seen by CNN.
