Lynne Spears said that her daughter Britney is doing fine, as she was approached by photographers at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Lynne was seen with her son Bryan, 44, in a clip on TMZ, which comes as Britney, 39, called her father Jamie Spears ‘threatening’ and ‘scary’ in new legal docs revolving around the conservatorship over the pop star.
Lynne stated her support for Britney to end the conservatorship over her in recent court filings reviewed by the outlet, saying she had personally involved herself amid a ‘time of crisis’ in May of 2019 in which Jamie exerted ‘absolute control’ over all of Britney’s medical and financial dealings.

Lynne told the court that a doctor Jamie appointed to take care of Britney had prescribed ‘inappropriate’ medication the singer did not want; and made her enter a facility as a punishment for her non-compliance.
Lynne said Britney’s opinion of her father has ‘dwindled to nothing but fear and hatred’ amid the 13-year history of the conservatorship, which was implemented amid a pileup of personal problems for the singer in 2008.
Sources told the outlet that Lynne and Britney have been estranged going on years, as Britney believes her mother should have intervened on her behalf sooner.
In court docs Britney filed Monday reviewed by the outlet, she called her father Jamie ‘threatening’ and ‘scary’ and asked requesting he be replaced as the conservator of her estate.

The new legal docs accuse Jamie of making his daughter’s life hell, describing her current situation as ‘traumatizing, insane and depressing’ while also painting a portrait of a financially irresponsible conservator, TMZ reported earlier Monday, citing court docs it reviewed.
The pop star’s lawyer Matt Rosengart filed a motion to have Jamie removed and have CPA Jason Rubin appointed in his place. Rosengart has requested Rubin, who practices out of Southern California, be appointed as conservator of her estate, citing his experience in handling financial and elder abuse cases in the past.
If the request is granted, Rubin would be given financial authority to manage Spears’ estate and assets as well as the powers of attorney to make health care decisions. Britney’s health care decisions have been under the purview of her conservator of Britney’s person, who is currently Jodi Montgomery.
The court docs depict Jamie as an incompetent financial manager, saying his family ‘struggled financially under his leadership and filed for bankruptcy in 1998.’

Britney’s legal team said her relationship with Jamie is ‘venomous’ and ‘it impairs Ms. Spears’s mental health, her well-being, and her ability to pursue and continue with her extraordinary career.’
The filings also contend that while Spears may have needed the support and oversight of a conservatorship 13 years ago, her mental health has drastically improved since.
‘Since receiving professional medical care at the outset of this conservatorship over thirteen years ago, Ms. Spears is clearly in a different place now, and she has been for many years,’ her legal team said in the court docs.
They continued: ‘The entire world has witnessed Ms. Spears working tirelessly — with astonishing dedication, precision, and excellence – as a musical artist and performer, an exceptional earner for Mr. Spears (and others) who had a financial interest in making sure she would continue to work and perform.’
Furthermore, the documents break down Spears’ financial assets: She currently reports $2,730,454 in cash holdings and $57,666,398 in non-cash assets, but that is likely only a portion of her financial portfolio; additionally there are multiple Morgan Stanley accounts listed and her homes are valued at $8,455,483.
A hearing regarding Rubin is set for December 13 and according to the filings, Britney plans to personally attend.
