The team surrounding Britney Spears appears to be crumbling after the pop star lost her longtime manager and personal conservatorship lawyer in the same week!
According to reports, Sam Ingham — who has represented Britney in the conservatorship for years — is set to resign. The longtime attorney must file documents with the court to get permission to be dismissed because he was her court-appointed attorney, and it must be approved by the judge.
Sources close to the case say Ingham is extremely upset about Britney’s accusation that she had no idea she could file documents to end her conservatorship. As we reported, Britney claimed she never knew it was a possibility, as she laid out what she called abuses of her situation. In fact, Ingham claims he regularly gave Britney every option in her case, including a request for termination of the conservatorship itself, but she was the one who never wanted to pull the trigger.
Britney’s Longtime Music Manager, Larry Rudolph, Resigns
Britney DID speak to her attorney about not wanting her father to continue as her personal conservator, and Ingham was involved in filing all the documents to remove Jamie Spears and add Jodi Montgomery to the case — something Brintey wanted at the time. Of course, Ingham will not get into tons of details in the dismissal document, when it’s filed, because he does not want to break attorney/client privilege.
The big news comes just hours after Britney’s longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, resigned after he was informed she would be retiring from performing on stage. Obviously, Larry felt there was no reason to continue as her manager if BS is taking a step back from her music career. Interestingly, it was Rudolph who spearheaded the 2018 European tour, in which Britney claims she was forced to perform, even after making it clear she didn’t want to continue.
But, according to sources, there are plenty of communications, including text messages, where it’s clear Britney wanted to go on tour. In one instance, she apparently “begged” to continue to do the shows.
Is This The End Of The Conservatorship?!
If Britney decides to stop music, there will be no need for a manager, plus if she files to terminate the conservatorship and wins — there will be no need for the lawyer either. Unfortunately, many of the same individuals will be present for the next court hearing, where they will argue and dispute many of the allegations put forth by Britney Spears. For instance, Jamie Spears and Jodi Montgomery have denied forcing Britney to wear an IUD and be on birth control. So, someone will have to answer why and how she has continued to wear the device. Plus, the conservatorship members will have to explain themselves as to why she isn’t allowed to be married or spend time alone with her boyfriend.
It should be noted, marriage is a contract — and normally, people under conservatorship are not allowed to sign their own contracts.
The word is there will be more resignations this week, which if you believe Britney’s heartbreaking testimony, is a very good thing.
