Spears asked a Los Angeles court to end the conservatorship, asking the judge to "now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required" for his daughter.

Reuters reported that the petition to terminate the conservatorship said: "Ms.Spears believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes she should get that chance."

The musician has been attempting for months to remove her father as her conservator, with the #FreeBritney movement picking up steam over the past number of months thanks in part to the recent Framing Britney documentary.

A petition on Tuesday asked the court to end the conservatorship entirely, saying that Spears "recently demonstrated a level of independence that calls into question whether a conservator of the person is required".

Jamie Spears agreed to step down from his long-time role as conservator of his daughter Britney Spears' $60m estate last month, but did not give a definitive timeline.

Spears remains under the care of a personal conservator, Jodi Montgomery, for the time being.

Jamie Spears has served as the conservator of Britney's estate for 13 years, however, she has been campaigning for him to be removed from this role for several months, alleging the complex legal arrangement controlling her life and career was abusive.

The decision to end the conservatorship is in the hands of Los Angeles judge Brenda Penny and will be discussed at a hearing on 29 September.
