Pop icon Britney Spears’s father, Jamie Spears, suggested she might be battering dementia.
According to a report by The Sun, Jamie, while presenting the paperwork to control his finances nearly ten years ago, indicated that the pop star had been diagnosed with dementia.
The claim is ready to be discussed in the upcoming BBC documentary about the singer, entitled The Battle for Britney.
According to reports, the 68-year-old had marked a box that read “placement or treatment of dementia” as a reason to maintain guardianship of the singer’s legacy that was established in 2008, as seen in the paperwork shown in the documentary.
In the document, journalist Mobeen Azhar says: “There are only two options with that. Britney might have dementia. Now I’m not a doctor, but if that’s the case, then the world isn’t aware of that. But the other option is actually more sinister.”
Her father has been part of the guardianship since Britney had a mental breakdown in 2007.
Since then, fans around the world have joined the singer with the #FreeBritney movement, as they believe the singer is being unfairly controlled by her father and team.
Other voices are convinced that Jamie Spears has managed to keep the singer’s fortunes safe, and was able to revive her career with her Las Vegas residence, which increased her fortune by $30 million and was watched by nearly 900,000 viewers.
