Britney Spears' lawyer has requested the "immediate suspension" of her dad, Jamie Spears as Conservator of the Estate.
Attorney, Mathew Rosengart, requested in a court filing that a judge suspend Jamie Spears as Conservator of the Estate immediately while they await a hearing due to take place in September or, move up the planned hearing, TMZ reports.
The hearing, that will address Spears' petition to remove her father from the conservatorship, is currently scheduled for September 29. However, the new filing asks for it to be moved to an earlier date either on or after 23 August.
Rosengart was appointed as Britney's attorney after Samuel Ingham, who was appointed by the court in 2008 to serve Spears, resigned from the case after being criticized for not doing enough to help her end her ordeal.
A court filing, filed on Thursday 5 August in Los Angeles and obtained by People, requests the "immediate suspension of James P. Spears as Conservator."
"Conservatee moves for the immediate suspension of James P. Spears as Conservator and the appointment of Jason Rubin as Temporary Conservator pending the hearing presently set for September 29, 2021," the court filing reads.
"Although a two-month wait for a hearing on the Petition may not seem significant in the context of 13 years, Ms. Spears should not be forced to continue to feel traumatized, lose sleep, and suffer further. Every day matters."
Britney's personal conservator, Jodi Montgomery, has also supported Rosengart request with a court filing.
Rosengart has suggested replacing Jamie Spears with Jason Rubin, a certified public accountant, as conservator of Britney's estate.
According to a source close to the situation, Britney is said to be pushing for Rubin to act as her estate conservator "because he's not just a regular CPA, but a forensic investigator CPA," People reports.
"Basically he's going to go back and look at all of the expenses and money that has been spent over the years," adds the source. "Britney's determined to find out if her funds have been misused."
Britney Spears criticized her fathers conservatorship during a court hearing in June. During the hearing she described the system as "abusive," while claiming that she was forced to consume medications after refusing to work, and that she wished to have another child and get married, but was not allowed.
