Britney Spears and lawyer Matt Rosengart have formally requested her 13-year long conservatorship come to an end before the end of the year.
The American star, 39, and legal team filed court docs asking for the conservatorship to end immediately, according to TMZ, citing her father Jamie Spears’ previous move to end the arrangement.
In the docs, Ms. Spears’ team says the conservatorship ‘no longer serves a legitimate purpose.’
Ms. Spears’ team is also asking to grant her father’s August motion to be removed as conservator, fearing he could ‘impede’ his daughter’s well-being if in charge for any longer.
Rosengart agreed with Jamie that no further medical evaluation are needed in order to terminate things.
The attorney also explained how Ms. Spears’ ability to demonstrate ‘capacity and capability to identify, engage, and instruct counsel of her own choice’ is a sign she is no longer in need of the conservatorship.
He quotes Mr. Spears’ filings, writing: ‘If Ms. Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr. Spears believes that she should get that chance.’
Britney is now requesting a ‘termination plan’ be created to finally let her transition out of the conservatorship.
Next week a hearing to remove Jamie from the conservatorship will take place.
Rosengart wants Mr. Spears gone now, claiming he has unfairly earned millions off of his daughter, despite having no business background and a rocky personal finance history.
The attorney would like a judge to appoint a professional conservator of her estate on a temporary basis while they hash out plans to end the conservatorship completely.
He went on to say how he’s hoping to end ‘the Kafkaesque nightmare imposed upon [Spears] by her father so that her dignity and basic liberties can be restored.’
Additionally, he confirmed reports that the family lawyers were drawing up a prenuptial agreement for Britney and newly-minted fiancé Sam Asghari.
Rosengart hope Mr. Spears will be removed before the pre-nup is finalized, stating his relationship with his daughter is ‘broken’ and his involvement would ‘impede the ability to negotiate and consummate a contract that all can agree is in Ms. Spears’s best interests,’ according to Page Six.
The new legal moves come just a day after the teaser for a bombshell new Netflix documentary heard the star asking to end her conservatorship all the way back in 2009.
