Jamie Spears, Britney Spears’ father, has broken his silence following the end of her conservatorship.

Jamie Spears, Britney Spears’ father, stepped out publicly for the first time in over a decade this weekend, more than a year after the singer’s conservatorship ended.

He addressed the court ruling and defended his position during his daughter’s 13-year conservatorship in a Sunday interview. He also stated that he is unsure whether she would have survived without it.

“Not everyone will agree with me,” Jamie Spears stated. “It’s been a roller coaster ride. However, I love my daughter with all of my heart and soul. Where would Britney be right now if she wasn’t under conservatorship? And I’m not sure if she’d be alive. I don’t.”
