A hearing has been set for Nov. 10 on whether to grant Britney’s request.
Britney Spears’ attorney is asking the court to immediately remove the singer’s father, James Spears, as co-conservator of Britney’s estate.
The iconic pop star’s court-appointed lawyer Samuel Ingham says in court papers filed Nov. 3 that if James is allowed to retain his position, it will cause “Britney to suffer loss and injury.” Ingham asks the court to remove James as soon as the singer’s new conservator, Bessemer Trust, is appointed.
Ingham filed the motion in a Los Angeles court after Britney learned Oct. 28 through a letter from James’ lawyer that her longtime business manager, Lou Taylor of Tri-Star Sports and Entertainment Group, had resigned without giving her any notice. Instead of informing Britney, her father allegedly hired Britney a new business manager, Michael Kane of Miller Kaplan. Britney's attorney says his client has not been given any information on how much she would be paying this new business manager nor the terms of his employment.
