BRITNEY Spears’ dad Jamie will remain the conservator of her estate as her conservatorship has been once again extended.
It was previously being stretch out until February 2021, but it’s now been pushed until September 3, 2021.
Her dad Jamie, mother Lynne and attorney Samuel Ingham all appeared during a remote hearing on Wednesday, according to ET, where the decision was announced.
The extension of Britney’s conservatorship, which first began in 2008, comes just days after Jamie revealed he hasn’t spoken to his daughter since August.
The pop singer’s lawyer had told CNN that she had been on “good terms” with her father up until August, which was when her legal team filed to have him removed as her conservator.
"My client has informed me that she is afraid of her father. She will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career," Ingham told the judge.
Last month, the mom-of-two’s attorney requested for Jamie to be suspended from his central role in the conservatorship, during a hearing at an LA court.
Judge Brenda Penny declined to suspend Jamie from the court conservatorship – but said she would consider future petitions for his suspension or outright removal, which Ingham plans to file.
Jamie, who usually keeps relatively quiet to the public about his relationship with Britney, shared his side of the situation with the outlet.
He confessed: “I love my daughter and I miss her very much.
“When a family member needs special care and protection, families need to step up, as I have done for the last 12-plus years, to safeguard, protect and continue to love Britney unconditionally.
“I have and will continue to provide unwavering love and fierce protection against those with self-serving interests and those who seek to harm her or my family.”
Jamie’s attorney, Vivian Lee Thoreen, alleged the sudden stop in communication is due to demands from her legal team.
She told the news publication: “Jamie’s relationship with Britney is not that different than your average father-daughter relationship insofar as there has always been a mutual love and respect for each other.
“Until Britney’s court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham abruptly instructed Jamie not to contact Britney a few months ago, Jamie and Britney had spoken often and regularly throughout the entire conservatorship.
“In fact, they had spoken just the day before and had had a pleasant and collaborative conversation,” she added.
Jamie has had full control over Britney's financial and personal affairs since 2008 after a series of public meltdowns, including her infamous head shave in 2007.
