Britney Spears’ attorney has filed court papers in a bid to remove the singer’s father, James Spears, as the co-conservator of her estate.
In papers filed on November 3, Spears’ court-appointed lawyer Samuel Ingham argued that the star will suffer “loss and injury” if James is allowed to retain his position.
Ingham is now requesting that James is removed from his position as soon as Spears’ new conservator, The Bessemer Trust, is appointed.
The latest legal battle comes amid the ongoing #FreeBritney campaign, which claims that the singer is being controlled by James – who became her conservator in 2008.
Spears first requested in September that her conservatorship is managed by The Bessemer Trust – a private independent firm that looks after $140 billion for over 2,500 families.
Another development in what seems to be an increasingly complicated relationship between Britney and her father.
