Lynne Spears requests court to allow Britney Spears find own lawyer

Lynne Spears approved Britney Spears’ desire to choose her attorney.

On Wednesday, Lynne Spears filed new court papers to allow Britney Spears to choose and hire her desired attorney.

Lynne told the court to “listen” to her daughter’s wishes. She asked them to approve Britney’s request to allow her to have her private legal counsel amid her conservatorship battle.

Prior to the filing, Britney’s court-appointed attorney Samuel Ingham III expressed his desire to resign. He has been serving as the singer’s attorney ever since the conservatorship began in 2008.

Ingham’s firm, Loeb & Loeb, LLP., will also be out of the conservatorship. However, Ingham noted that the court shall accept the resignation once a new court-appointed counsel has been selected.

Meanwhile, Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph, left his post for good after the singer said she wanted to go on an indefinite hiatus.

“It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus,” Rudolph said, per Deadline. “Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.”

Lynne reacts to Britney’s statements

In the same Wednesday filing, the matriarch said that the June 23 hearing of her daughter was “a very courageous showing.” She added that she supports Britney and her way to pour her heart out as she tries to be heard.

Lynne confirmed the singer’s statement, saying that she could take care of herself just like how she has always been. She said that she also does not want her daughter to undergo mental evaluation as part of her request.

She concluded the statement by saying that the Toxic hitmaker should be allowed to marry Sam Asghari and have a baby.

Britney spoke about these things during the hearing. She also revealed that the conservatorship became an abusive one and that her father has been too controlling.

“I am not happy, I can’t sleep. I’m so angry, it’s insane. And I’m depressed. My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management… they should be in jail,” she said.

She is scheduled to appear before the court again for the hearing on July 14.

Following her first appearance, several Hollywood celebrities already defended Britney Spears including Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Halsey, and AJ McLean. The former Backstreet Boys member even compared her to Princess Diana due to her personal life struggles.
