The mother of Britney Spears is suing her daughter’s conservator

Cindy Spears, the mother of Britney Spears, has accused the pop star’s longtime conservator of breaching her relationship with her daughter, according to The Associated Press.

“In over 15 years, there has never been a call, text or letter from Britney Spears, or from any of her people for help with my personal or mental health issues,” Cindy Spears said in a statement obtained by AP. “To say that this I.D. is a coincidence would be highly inappropriate and untrue.”

In late November, TMZ reported that Spears filed for a restraining order against her mother, claiming that “her mother tried to break into the conservatorship on multiple occasions.” The actor David Hans Schmidt, Britney Spears’ conservator, told TMZ at the time that his family’s relationship with Spears was “coming to an end.” The conservatorship was established in 2008 following the singer’s public meltdown.

Cindy Spears’ attempt to remove the conservatorship also came while the entertainer was in the midst of a mental breakdown. According to The AP, Judge Michael Wiles has now agreed to allow the conservatorship to stay in place until a final ruling has been made, but would allow Cindy Spears to be removed from the conservatorship without the psychological evaluation that is typically performed on conservators.

Schmidt’s attorney told TMZ in a statement that he’s “not surprised that her petition is denied because Ms. Spears has proven to be unreliable and dishonest in the past.”

In court filings obtained by AP, Cindy Spears disputed her parental rights as “eviscerated by the 1991 memorandum memorandum” of Jamie Spears and accuses Schmidt of violating the written agreement she signed in 2012. She requested two doctors with “specialties in psychiatry, mental health, community mental health and substance abuse services” give her a report as to her competency.

Schmidt has pushed back against her claims. “The conservatorship has helped Britney immensely — not in keeping her from her multiple drugs but in keeping her from seeking the help and treatment she needs,” Schmidt told AP in a statement. “Furthermore, in the court hearing today, she was clear and articulate about the goal she wants to achieve for herself and those close to her, which is to resolve the conservatorship, restore her parental rights and get well.”

Cindy Spears also said in a statement, “I really believe that my future is going to be brighter and brighter with everyone who cares about me and her future is also going to be brighter and brighter. I have always been a fighter and I will continue to fight for the two people I love the most: my beautiful children and my beautiful loving mother.”

Meanwhile, Britney Spears’ attorneys have filed court documents, requesting that an additional hearing be held to address more complicated issues surrounding the conservatorship and the media scrutiny following the pop star’s reported breakdown.
