Britney Spears has again lost her bid to throw out her father James as her conservator.
According to TMZ, Judge Brenda Penny denied Britney’s request, despite her explosive testimony in court.
Britney has been under her dad’s conservatorship since 2008.
A conservatorship is a legal concept in the United States that places someone under the legal protection of an appointed adult.
A guardian or a protector is appointed by a judge to manage different aspects of someone’s life, from their financial affairs to their daily life.
One is usually appointed a conservator if they are suffering from physical or mental issues or declining with age.
Britney’s request to strip her dad of the role was made in November by her lawyer Samuel Ingham.
Court documents filed by the lawyer claimed the 39-year-old singer was scared of her father and would refuse to perform again.
Judge Penny, who denied the request, did not rule out future petitions to suspend him from the conservatorship.
The judge also named financial company Bessemer Trust as co-conservator.
