Britney Spears' brother reveals singer has wanted to get out of her conservatorship 'for quite some time'

The pop star's father, Jamie Spears, continues to maintain control of her finances

Britney Spears' brother opened up in a rare interview about what it was like growing up with the pop star and how the family as a whole adjusted as she skyrocketed to stardom.

Speaking on the "As NOT Seen on TV" podcast, Bryan Spears, 43, said he was in college when Britney became a household name. Since then, the world watched as she suffered a 2007 meltdown, subsequently resulting in her being placed under a conservatorship controlled by their father, Jamie Spears.

Britney's brother was asked about the latest drama surrounding her conservatorship, in which he explained that while it's a beneficial thing to have in place, Britney ultimately would like to get out of it.

"She's been in this thing for quite some time now. Obviously there was a need for it in the beginning," Bryan said. "Now they've made some changes and all we can do is hope for the best!"

He went on to share that he speaks to Britney "constantly" and hinted at her thoughts of someone else managing her financial affairs.

"She's always wanted to get out of it. It's very frustrating to have," Bryan added. "Whether someone's coming in peace to help or they're coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating. She's wanted to get out of it for quite some time."

"In the beginning it was hard. Anytime you're going through struggles or whatever and having to make big adjustments, that is very difficult. What I think kind of got us all through it is all of us have been pretty close all these years," he said, adding that the family has only had "normal fights."

"But nothing ever major where everyone's quit speaking. We haven't ever had that," he said.

Jamie reportedly served as Britney's conservator from 2008 until he stepped down in September 2019, citing health issues. While Bryan said he knows his dad is still active in the conservatorship, he's not certain what his role is at the moment. It reported last fall that Britney's longtime care manager Jodi Montgomery was appointed as a temporary conservator while Jamie maintains financial control.

"In general, he's done the best he could being given the situation he's put it in and we have to work together as a family to keep it going," Britney's brother concluded.
