Britney Spears’ father Jamie has been suspended as the conservator of her estate after 13 years.
During the latest court hearing at Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, Judge Brenda Penny said Jamie Spears remaining in charge of his daughter’s estate was “untenable”.
John Zabel, a certified accountant, was appointed temporary conservator of the estate.

However, the judge sided with Spears’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, agreeing it was in the star’s “best interests” that her father be removed.
