Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears has been spotted out near his home in Kentwood, Louisiana, amid his daughter’s bombshell hearing over her conservatorship.
James ‘Jamie’ Parnell Spears, 68, who has struggled with his health over the past few years, once again appeared frail-looking as he stepped out to run errands in rural Kentwood where Britney grew up with her family.
Despite receiving a salary of about $16,000 per month plus an extra $2,000 monthly for office space for his role as conservator, Jamie is currently living in modest housing.
He lives in a fifth-wheel trailer parked at a storage facility on the outskirts of the town that also houses much of the memorabilia amassed over her career.

The RV parked on the property appears to be a Dutchmen ‘Denali’ fifth wheel model, which on RV sales websites can go for around $35,000 for late models.
Jamie has sold the house that Britney grew up in, according to a report by The New York Times.
Britney’s father was spotted out shortly after her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears spoke out in favor of ending her conservatorship.
‘Now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feeI I need to say,’ the Zooey 101 star said via her Instagram Stories.
‘I’m so proud of her for using her voice,’ she said. ‘I’m so proud of her for requesting new counsel, like I told her many years ago. Oh, not in a public platform but just in a personal conversation between two sisters… If ending the conservatorship and flying to Mars or whatever the hell else she wants to do to be happy, I support that one hundred percent because I support my sister, I love my sister. Always have, always will.’
Jamie Lynn also defended her decision not to previously speak out publicly.
‘Maybe I didn’t support the way the public would like me to — with a hashtag on a public platform — but I can assure you that I support my sister long before there was a hashtag and I’ll support her long after,’ she continued.
Since the incredible allegations last week in the hearing to request to end her conservatorship, Britney jetted off to Hawaii with longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari after describing the extent of her misery since her father was given almost complete control over her life and reported $60 million fortune in 2008.

Last Wednesday, Britney gave an impassioned 23 minute speech before Los Angeles Judge Brenda Penny on Wednesday in which she said her parents should have even been jailed for the way they treated her.

Britney’s highly-publicized and contentious relationship with her once-estranged father has become has birthed ‘Free Britney’ movements worldwide among her fans and fellow celebrities concerned for her welfare.
It was revealed during the Wednesday hearing that Britney wants to end the conservatorship and that she has been opposing it quietly for the past seven years.
‘I want this conservatorship to end — I truly believe that this conservatorship is abusive,’ Spears told Judge Penny.
‘I want to be able to get married to my boyfriend and have a baby but the conservatorship told me I can’t do that,’ she continued.
‘I have an IUD [intrauterine device] inside me to prevent me from having a baby. I want to go to a doctor and take it out so I can have a baby but they [the conservatorship] told me no,’ she added.
‘I feel ganged up on and bullied and alone,’ the singer continued.
‘I want changes. I want changes going forward, and I deserve changes. It’s my wish and dream for all of this to end.’
Britney even compared the conservatorship to ‘sex trafficking,’ saying they are, ‘making anyone work against their will, taking all their possessions away credit card, cash, phone, passport.’

She was put on several types of medications including lithium which made her feel ‘drunk,’ adding that her family did nothing and, ‘My dad was all for it.’
‘I cried on the phone to my dad for an hour and he loved every minute of it.
My dad and everyone else who has played a key role in my conservatorship should be in jail,’ she said.
‘They have way too much control. I don’t drink alcohol but I should, considering what they put my heart through,’ Britney added.
The singer also clearly stated to the judge: ‘I want this conservatorship to end — I truly believe that this conservatorship is abusive.’
Britney’s status hearing did not hear any petitions, meaning that a decision on whether to release her from the conservatorship was not requested.
Judge Penny said that she will set a hearing as soon as possible, so that Britney can make that petition.

She was told twice by Judge Penny to slow down after talking too fast, but made it clear she wants the conservatorship to end, immediately.
‘I want to end this conservatorship. I don’t want to be evaluated. I have had enough. I don’t want to be in this stupid conservatorship any more. It’s embarrassing and humiliating. I’m not lying. I just want my life back. It’s been 13 years and it’s enough. I’m done,’ she said.
She was put in a $60,000-a-month treatment facility three years ago, which she initially said publicly that she was happy there, but she admitted in court that was a lie.
‘When I went there they took everything away from me. They watched me change, naked every single day. I sat in a chair for 10 hours a day, seven days a week.
‘I am not happy. I can’t sleep. I’m so angry, I’m insane. I’m scared by people. I don’t trust people,’ she added.
‘The conservatorship should end. What state allows people to say, ‘You can’t spend your money unless you do as we say,’ Spears continued.
Meanwhile, Britney and boyfriend Sam Asghari have been enjoying a sun-kissed getaway to Hawaii following the pop star’s bombshell testimony last week in her conservatorship case.
And on Monday, the 39-year-old was seen working out with Asghari, 27, in a short video clip he posted to his Instagram.
In the clip, Sam shows off his impressive biceps as he flexes in front of a mirror as Britney works out on a treadmill behind him.

‘I’ve only loved, adored and supported her’: Britney Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn fights back tears as she FINALLY breaks her silence on conservatorship and insists she’s NOT relying on pop star to pay her bills
Jamie Lynn Spears is finally speaking out after her sister Britney Spears appeared in court last week saying she wants to end her ‘abusive’ conservatorship.
Jamie, 30, had caught intense backlash from fans for staying silent on the matter – with some even accusing her of profiting off her sister’s $60million fortune – but she took to Instagram on Monday to address the situation.
Showing her support for Britney, 39, the actress said that she wants nothing but ‘happiness’ for her sister and that she always has and ‘always will’ support her, in an emotional video message.

The Zoey 101 star appeared to be distancing herself from playing any kind of role in Britney’s business affairs, by saying she made a ‘very conscious choice’ to ‘only participate’ in the singer’s life as her sister – and has worked hard in her own career.
‘I paid my freakin’ bills since I was 10 years old. Not that I owe the public anything, because my sister knows I love and support her… I’m not my family. I’m my own person. And I’m speaking for myself,’ she explained.
Last year, it was reported that Jamie had been selected as the custodian of Britney’s SJB Revocable Trust, originally put in place by Britney in 2004 to protect assets for her two children, Sean Preston, 15, and Jayden James, 14.

Fans had attacked the star last week, hinting that her silence suggested she could be complicit in Britney’s conservatorship, which has been run by their father Jamie Spears for the past 13 years.
Jamie explained: ‘Maybe I didn’t support the way the public would like me to with a hashtag on a public platform but I can assure you that I support my sister long before there was a hashtag and I’ll support her long after.’
She started the emotional video speaking softly, as she said: ‘The only reason I haven’t [spoken] before, is because I felt that until my sister was able to speak for herself, and say what she felt she needed to say publicly, that it wasn’t my place. And it wasn’t the right thing to do.’
‘But now that she’s very clearly spoken, and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I feel like I need to say – I feel like it’s extremely clear that since the day I was born I’ve only loved, adored, and supported my sister. I mean this is my freaking big sister, before any of this bulls***.
‘I don’t care if she wants to run away to a rainforest and have zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has so many times before, because I have nothing to gain or lose either way,’ she continued.
‘This situation does not affect me either way, because I’m only her sister who’s only concerned about her happiness.’
Jamie went on to say she was ‘so proud’ of Britney for using her voice, adding: ‘I’m so proud of her for requesting new counsel like I told her many years ago – oh, not in a public platform but just in a personal conversation between two sisters.’
‘If ending the conservatorship and flying to Mars or whatever the hell else she wants to do to be happy, I support that 100% because I support my sister; I love my sister. Always have, always will. As long as she’s happy. So let’s keep praying. That’s all,’ she said in conclusion.
