At a court hearing on Wednesday, July 14, Judge Brenda Penny approved Spears and her personal conservator Jodi Montgomery's request to hire her own lawyer following the resignation of her court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham III. The "Womanizer" singer was given permission to hire Mathew Rosengart. Rosengart's firm has previously represented famous faces such as Ben Affleck, Steven Spielberg and Sean Penn.
Spears spoke up during the hearing via phone call and said she wanted to press charges against her father, Jamie Spears, as well an investigation into what she alleged to be "conservatorship abuse," CNN reported.
The pop icon said the conservatorship was "f**king cruelty". Spears claimed that she felt those inside the conservatorship "were trying to kill" her. "If this is not abuse, I don't know what is," she added.
Spears also made it clear that she was not willing to be evaluated to remove her father because she has "serious abandonment issues."
"Jamie Spears should be removed as conservator because it is in [the] best interest of the conservatee," Rosengart said outside the courthouse. "We will be moving promptly and aggressively for his removal. The question remains, why is he involved? He should step down voluntarily because that’s what’s in the best interest of the conservatee."
Last month, Spears made headlines when she spoke out in court and said the conservatorship was "abusive." Spears claimed that under the conservatorship, she had an IUD she could not get removed, was put on lithium and had been forced to perform.
Spears had been represented by Ingham for 13 years since the conservatorship was put in place but he stepped down on July 6 and said he "wanted to resign effective upon the appointment of new court-appointed counsel."
