A Los Angeles judge has denied Britney Spears' request for her father to be removed as a co-conservator.  

Jamie Spears has been the popstar's guardian for more than 10 years. But Britney says she is afraid of her father and does want him to handle her personal or business affairs anymore. 

"The conservator's request to suspend James P. Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company of California, N.A. as sole conservator of estate is denied without prejudice," E! News quoted court papers as reading. 

According to Variety, the judge did not base his opinion on Britney's emotional testimony last week. 

"The judge cannot make any ruling based on what she said as she still has yet to file a petition to terminate her conservatorship," the publication noted.

During her testimony, Britney made several shocking accusations against her father. She said she cannot get married or have another baby.

"I have an (IUD) inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant. I wanted to take the (IUD) out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children – any more children," she testified.

Britney is currently dating model Sam Asghari. The star says she feels like she is in a rehab programme.

"I feel like they’re making me feel like I live in a rehab program. This is my home. I’d like for my boyfriend to be able to drive me in his car. And I want to meet with a therapist once a week, not twice a week. And I want him to come to my home. Because I actually know I do need a little therapy." 

Britney's father denied interfering with her plans to get married. He also blamed co-conservator Jodi Montgomery for some of the issues the singer complained about. 

"Ms. Montgomery has been fully in charge of Ms. Spears’ day-to-day personal care and medical treatment, and Ms. Montgomery has made all decisions related to those matters,” Jamie said in court papers, according to Page Six.

Britney says she wants to end her conservatorship altogether. 

"I've been so angry and I cry every day. For my sanity ... I need to get it off my heart. The anger, all of it. The main reason why I'm here today is I want to end the conservatorship without being evaluated."
