A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Wednesday signed an order denying Britney Spears’ request to remove her father, Jamie Spears, from the financial aspects of her guardianship.

Judge Brenda Penny dismissed the claim, which was first filed by Spears’ attorney Samuel D. Ingham III last November. The judge’s decision comes after the singer appeared in court last Wednesday to appeal directly to the court. In this emotion declaration, Spears said she was exploited and “intimidated” by the guardianship – and more specifically, by her father.

Until recently, the financial and personal arms of the Guardianship were controlled by Spears’ father, Jamie Spears.

Last year, Ingham said in a filing that Spears “strongly opposes” her father as a Tory and refuses to perform if he remains in charge of his career.

In February, Judge Penny cleared a wealth management company, Bessemer Trust, to become co-custodian of the financial arm of the Spears arrangement. Jamie Spears remains the main curator for all other aspects of the guardianship of Spears.

The next hearing in the case is currently scheduled for July 14. It is possible that Spears will submit a request to end the guardianship. In her comments to Judge Penny last week, Spears said she was unaware she could take such a step. “I didn’t know I could ask the guardianship to end it,” she said. “I’m sorry for my ignorance, but honestly, I didn’t know.”
