Britney Spears’ court-appointed attorney has formally handed in his resignation after the pop star pleaded with the judge in her case to help her get out of the conservatorship.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Sam Ingham and the law firm Loeb & Loeb have officially filed to be removed from Britney’s case. As we reported, Ingham claims it’s not in his best interest to continue representing the pop star in this case, especially after she said she had no idea she could file to get out of the case.
We’re told that is simply not true, and Ingham has advised her on several occasions of her rights in this case, including filing for termination of the conservatorship. It was Britney who didn’t pull the trigger on filing the proper documents to fight the conservatorship.
Britney Spears Will Be Provided Another Attorney
“Appointment of counsel to represent the conservatee is necessary to protect her interests because applicant, who is
conservatee’s current court-appointed counsel, and LOEB & LOEB LLP, which is associated co-court appointed counsel for the conservatee, have tendered their resignations,” the document reads.
As you know, Ingham is a court-appointed attorney, and Britney will need to be provided another lawyer before this set can leave the case. In most instances, a suitable attorney can be found immediately. “Applicant requests that said resignations be accepted effective upon the appointment of new court-appointed counsel,” the document continued.
As we reported, Britney DID speak to her lawyer about wanting her father to be removed from the case — and Ingham spearheaded the move to remove Jamie Spears. Unfortunately, after hearing Britney’s heartbreaking testimony, many questions are going to have to be answered by members of the conservatorship team.
Britney’s Music Manager Resigns The Same Day!
The big news comes on the heels of another major shake-up in Britney’s world after longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, resigned. Apparently, the switch came on indications that Spears will retire from music, and there will be no reason to continue having a manager. Interestingly, Rudolph reportedly worked on the 2018 European tour, in which Britney was forced to perform under protest. But, apparently, there are communications including text messages that prove Brit wanted to go on tour.
In the end, most of the players involved in this case will be summoned to a conservatorship hearing where the judge will get to the bottom of Britney’s allegations. The biggest being the revelation that she is being forced to wear an IUD preventing her from getting pregnant, and claims she is being forced not to marry her current boyfriend.
According to reports, there will be more resignations this week, and this follows the first one — Bessemer Trust — who decided to drop out of working on the pop star’s $60 million estate, after hearing her issues during last week’s hearing.
A judge will have to sign off on the request, and appoint a new lawyer for Spears.
