Jamie and Britney Spears
After the official removal of the 69-year-old father of 39-year-old Britney Spears from the position of custodian of her property and finances, new details of the relationship in the star's family appear in the press almost every day. The day before, Britney herself hinted that Jamie Lynn's younger sister did not support her in the battle for freedom from her father's custody, and now an insider said that in the early years of custody of her daughter, Jamie Spears was desperately trying to help her cope with psychological problems through religion.

In an interview with TMZ, the insider said that Jamie Spears turned to God in 2008, after Britney's nervous breakdown, due to which he became her legal guardian. During this period, the star's father became close to a staunch Christian and business manager Lou Taylor. It was Lou who attracted Robin Greenhill to the business, who not only dealt with Britney Spears' work issues, but also generally controlled her life.
In the first year of guardianship, these three literally walked everywhere with the Bible in their hands, preaching the word of God, – said the source.
The insider also said that Britney was then allowed to read exclusively religious literature. In addition, Jamie, Lou, and Robin were intolerant of those who were not considered “good Christians.” Earlier, Britney Spears' mother Lynn already noted in one of her books that she and Jamie were really passionate about religion.
We felt that God had told us to wait, fast and pray, ”wrote Lynn.
Tri Star Entertainment founder Lou Taylor, which earned 5 percent of Britney's income, also noted in a 2008 interview that Jamie and Lynn asked God to “give them strength” every day. Religion in this family was central until 2009, when Britney embarked on the Circus Tour, which proved to be very lucrative. At that time, financial issues came to the fore.
We will remind that recently Britney Spears through the court achieved that her father Jamie would no longer manage her finances. Representatives of the star's father have already said they plan to appeal the decision. In November, the next court session will take place, at which the issue of the complete removal of Jamie from the post of her daughter's guardian will be decided. In fact, Jamie has not fulfilled his duties for two years: due to health problems, he transferred these powers to his personal assistant Jody Montgomery.
