Britney Spears Expands Legal Team, Hopefully With People Who Won’t Call Her a Coma Patient

Britney Spears has been involved with a protracted legal battle with her father Jamie over the future of her conservatorship; it appears that the singer wants it ended but if norm she doesn’t want her father to be the sole conservator. Spears’ fans have been vocal in wanting her conservatorship ended, and her friends and other family have generally sided with the “Free Britney” movement, which lends it a lot of credence.

Variety reports that Spears racked up another win with the court accepting her petition to expand her legal team.

Britney, 38, is seeking to have Jamie removed from her conservatorship, which has been in effect for 12 years. She was not present for the latest hearing, although though her mother, Lynne Spears, Jamie and her attorney, Samuel Ingham were.

Jamie had opposed Britney’s petition, citing the cost of adding more lawyers.

Jamie Spears gets paid over $10k a month to be his daughter’s conservator, so if finances are a problem then maybe he could give that up. It seems weird that Jamie is in a position to oppose someone hiring more lawyers for a legal fight against him.

Personally, I think Britney should be able to do whatever she wants here. I don’t see why she needs to be in conservatorship and if it’s voluntary like she says, it can just be ended and she can hire someone trustworthy to manage her finances, she doesn’t need to be legally required to do so.
