Britney Spears' conservatorship has been extended until 3 September 2021.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the decision was made earlier this week in a remote hearing involving Britney's father Jamie Spears, mother Lynne Spears and attorney Samuel Ingham.

Jamie's handling of his daughter's assets was expected to be reviewed but the court agreed to adjourn the matters to a later hearing next year - much further than the original date set which was February 2021.

Earlier this week, Jamie spoke to CNN, explaining that he hadn't spoken to his daughter since summer, adding that he's on 'good terms' with her, despite her filing to remove him as her conservator.

He explained: "I love my daughter and I miss her very much. When a family member needs special care and protection, families need to step up, as I have done for the last 12-plus years, to safeguard, protect and continue to love Britney unconditionally.

"I have and will continue to provide unwavering love and fierce protection against those with self-serving interests and those who seek to harm her or my family."

Last month a court rejected Britney's attempt to have her dad removed as conservator of her estate.

The pop star, 39, has made several legal attempts this year to have him taken off the legal document, however he believes Britney isn't safe to resume running her own life, career and financial affairs.

Her lawyer said that she will never perform again until her father is removed as the head of her conservatorship. Samuel D. Ingham III, said in court: "My client has informed me that she is afraid of her father. She will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career."

Judge Brenda Penny said she needed more evidence before deciding whether to remove Jamie Spears but said she would consider future appeals.

The order read: "The Court finds that additional evidence by supplemental declaration or additional documentation is required to grant the matter on calendar this date based upon the reading of the moving papers and consideration of all presented evidence."

Fans of Britney Spears have been concerned that the star has been kept against her will in the conservatorship and started a #FreeBritney movement on social media.

But Jamie told Page Six that the #FreeBritney movement was stupid.

"All these conspiracy theorists don't know anything. The world don't have a clue. It's up to the court of California to decide what's best for my daughter. It's no one else's business," he said.

"I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year. How the hell would I steal something?"

"People are being stalked and targeted with death threats. It's horrible. We don't want those kinds of fans. I love my daughter. I love all my kids. But this is our business. It's private."
