Britney Spears' father has agreed to step down from his 13-year role as her conservator, according to court filing on Thursday.

The document confirms that Jamie Spears agrees to hand over his role to another person, which would not annul the conservatorship, but would remove the singer's family from involvement.

"There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate (…) And it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears' best interests," the document said.

"Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests," it added.
