Jamie Spears intends to step down as conservator of his daughter Britney Spears' estate following months of public pressure from her supporters, according to new court documents.


Jamie allegedly skipped three depositions on the matter, one in April and two from last October and November.

The court filing reads: "Mr. Spears can run, but he cannot forever hide from his legal and fiduciary obligations. His stonewalling and obfuscation must not stop the truth from coming to light; it has only required that the parties expend unnecessary resources in a protracted battle to obtain his compliance.

But, after using his daughter's money for more than 13 years to fund his legal fees and expenses, for the first time, Mr. Spears will now have to pay his own legal fees."

Lawyers are now requesting a new deposition date be set for July 13.

Jamie agreed to step down from Britney's conservatorship in August following months of public pressure from her supporters.
