BRITNEY Spears' dad Jamie looked serious as he pumped gas after a judge ruled that he will remain as the singer's conservator.
On Wednesday, Britney failed in her latest attempt to remove her 68-year-old father from her conservatorship.

Amid the controversy, Jamie was seen grabbing smoothies at a gas station on the outskirts of rural Kentwood, Luisiana.
He wore a gray T-shirt and shorts and covered up with a baseball cap.
Despite having control over Britney’s $60million fortune, Jamie has chosen to live a low-key life in an RV.
He lives in a motor home, which he parks in a storage facility parking lot on the outskirts of Kentwood, Louisiana.
The storage facility includes a warehouse that stores memorabilia collected over the course of Britney’s career.
Yesterday, Britney had her bid to get her father removed from a guardianship arrangement thrown out by a judge.
The singer's lawyer, Samuel Ingham, asked a court in Los Angeles to oust Jamie from his position managing the popstar's multimillion dollar estate.
Britney has been living under a complex legal arrangement – usually reserved for the very old and infirm – after suffering a series of mental breakdowns in 2007.
It gives her father control over much of her affairs – and Britney claims it has placed restrictions on her private life.
When calling for Jamie to be removed in November last year, Mr Ingham said Britney, 39, was scared of her father and wanted him gone from the conservatorship that has controlled her life since 2008.
In court filings, the singer said she wanted private wealth management firm the Bessemer Trust appointed as "sole conservator".
However, documents filed in Los Angeles show Judge Brenda Penny refused the request while rubber-stamping Bessemer Trust's role as co-conservator of the estate.
It comes after last week’s shocking testimony in which Britney claimed the conservatorship arrangement was so “abusive,” she wanted to “sue her family.”
The mom-of-two said she was required to use a contraceptive device and was barred from marrying boyfriend Sam Asghari.
She told the court: "I want to get married and have a baby. I wanted to take the IUD out and have a baby but conservator won't let me because they don't want me to have a baby.”
Britney is already mother to sons Sean, 15, and Jayden, 14, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
The current decision did not take this statement into consideration.
According to the outlet, a judge ruled that Jamie will remain her co-conservator “at least for now.”
Further details on why the judge made her decision have not yet been revealed, although Britney's lawyers are now expected to file a fresh petition calling for her freedom.
Her dad has overseen her estate for 13 years but has not been in charge of her personal affairs since September 2019, when he stepped down from the role due to ill health.
Jamie was replaced as Britney's personal conservator on a temporary basis by Jodi Montgomery, the singer's care-giver.
The case is expected to carry on – and Jamie is calling for a probe into Jodi's involvement, saying she does "not reflect [Britney's] wishes".
Yesterday, Jodi issued a lengthy statement that placed the blame of the singer's "suffering" on Jamie.
She claimed she was the one who had been "a tireless advocate" for Britney.
According to her attorney, Jodi felt that the bombshell accusations Britney made in court last week were "heartfelt."
