Britney Spears is trying to get her father, Jamie Spears, removed from her conservatorship for a second time. After a failed attempt back in August, Spears has filed court papers again.
This time, her court-appointed lawyer, Samuel Ingham is saying that if her father retains his rights as her conservator, it will cause “Britney to suffer loss and injury.”
Billboard reports that the papers were filed with the court Tuesday, 3rd November. It came after the pop star learning the week prior, that her long term business manager, Lou Taylor from Tri-Star Sports and Entertainment Group had resigned with no notice.
She found out via a letter from her father’s lawyer that he had been replaced by Michael Kane of Miller Kaplan.
Britney Spears’ lawyer says she has been given no information surrounding the new business manager’s employment terms or compensation.
Ingham told the judge overseeing Spears’ case, Brenda Penny, that she no longer wants her father in the position of co-conservator.
The letter also reportedly saw her father’s legal team attempt to keep her estate account at City National Bank. Spears is asking for Bessemer Trust Company to be appointed to the role.
Ingham says the letter is a, “blatant attempt by James to try to retain full functional control of her assets, books and records in the face of Britney’s objections, TriStar’s resignation and the appointment of Bessemer Trust.”
The hearing is set for next Tuesday, 10th November.
Britney’s fans have led the charge in the #FreeBritney movement. They’ve been calling for the conservatorship to end and have been pretty sus on a lot of the pop star’s Instagram posts.
Spears recently shared a video to Instagram where she said, “So I know there have been a lot of comments and a lot of people saying a lot of different things about me.”
“I just want to let you guys know that I am fine.
“I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. And I’m sending all of you guys a lot of prayers, wishes and a lot of of love.”
