U.S. Court suspends Britney Spears’ father from custody

A U.S. court has removed Britney Spears’ father from custody of the singer. Control of the singer’s finances will be temporarily turned over to a profiler.

Jamie Spears agrees to give up custody of his daughter. A hundred fans gathered outside the building to support the singer. Fans chanted, “Free Britney!”

In 2008, Spears was declared partially incompetent. The singer had problems due to drug addiction. For over 10 years, Britney’s finances were controlled by her father. The artist’s fortune is estimated at about $60 million.
