Britney Spears has set her hopes on her care manager Jodi Montgomery replacing her father Jamie Spears as her conservator and believes things could be looking up if she’s successful.
The 39-year-old pop superstar not only ‘trusts’ Montgomery to take over her conservatorship, but insiders say her life ‘would drastically change for the better’ if her father was removed, Page Six reported Thursday.
The boost of confidence in her preferred conservator candidate comes after Spears’ attorney filed a petition to have Montgomery take over the conservatorship from her father, TMZ reported earlier this week.
Looking for a change: Insiders say Britney Spears’ life ‘would drastically change for the better’ if she succeeds in removing her father Jamie Spears from her conservatorship and installing her care manager Jodi Montgomery, Page Six reported Thursday
‘If Jodi becomes her conservator things would drastically change for Britney — she’s not working because of her dad. She has said that as long as a dad is in control of her life, she’s not working,’ a source close to Spears said.
‘Britney trusts Jodi Montgomery — she’s really great. Things would drastically change for the better,’ they continued.
The success of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah has led to speculation that Britney might try something similar, though the insider said she would only consider a tell-all interview once Jamie was replaced as her conservator.
‘If she decided she wanted to do [an Oprah-style interview], yes, but it [sic] definitely wouldn’t do it in the current status quo. As long as her dad is part of it, she’s not working. She hasn’t talked to her dad in over a year,’ they said.

An insider previously told Us Weekly that Britney was unlikely to do a tell-all interview.
‘The report about Britney considering a tell-all is greatly exaggerated and essentially giving false hope to the fans who tweeted calls for it after the Harry and Meghan interview,’ the source said.
‘Britney would like to tell her story and has always wanted to write a memoir, but the conservatorship makes that difficult and it’s not something on her immediate radar, anyway.’
Another source said she might be interested in sharing her story, but not on television.
‘Britney hasn’t mentioned doing an interview. She wants to speak and could do so on social media with the assistance of [boyfriend Sam ] on his platforms if it got to be this emergency situation for her,’ the second insider explained, adding: ‘She doesn’t want to be filtered.’
