Britney Spears' attorney has requested that the singer's father, James Spears, be removed immediately as co-conservator of Britney's estate.
Samuel Ingham, Britney's court-appointed lawyer, filed papers in Los Angeles County court on November 3rd claiming that if James retains his position, it will cause “Britney to suffer loss and injury.”
Billboard reports that the filing stems from an issue that arose in October. The pop star's manager, from Tri-Star Sports and Entertainment Group resigned abruptly and her farther replaced him without informing her.
Britney is asking the judge to appoint Bessemer Trust Company in his place. A hearing has been set for Nov. 10 at 1:30 p.m. PT before Judge Brenda Penny on whether to grant the singer's request.
