A judge has ruled to end the guardianship of Britney Spears’s estate.
The ruling by Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz ends the temporary conservatorship of Jamie Spears.
Ms Spears’s mother, Lynne, is one of the five people named as conservators.
Ms Spears was still under a court order to take her children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, to see her father. They were previously taken away by paparazzi in Los Angeles, prompting the court to intervene.
A trial has been scheduled for 25 April in which potential conservators would be asked to vie for control of the pop star’s affairs.
Mr Spears spent much of the hearing discussing his fear that the paparazzi were becoming “bored” with his daughter.
The judge expressed concern about children’s safety because of the access the media gives to Britney Spears.
The singer’s court appointed attorney, Sorrell Trope, told the court that the judge had ordered that law enforcement officers move any paparazzi attempting to get close to Britney Spears.
Ms Spears, who was once in a contentious custody battle with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, also received emergency guardian approval earlier this year.
The hearing on Tuesday also discussed whether Mr Spears should be able to take his son Sean Preston for a short visit, as requested.
“The court believes that the public may be interested in understanding the dynamics of this relationship,” Judge Goetz told the hearing.
