Two months prior, the Crossroads actress made headlines when she spoke out for the first time about her conservatorship, which she’s been under since 2008. During a June court hearing, Britney stood up for herself and confirmed that she wants her father, 69, removed from his role as co-conservator as Jamie has been in control of her financial decisions and estate for more than a decade.
The following month, she doubled down on her plea to get Jamie off of her team, telling a judge in July, “I’m here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse. This conservatorship has allowed my dad to ruin my life.”

After being granted the right to choose her own lawyer last month, Britney and her new attorney, Matthew Rosengart, filed court documents to officially petition for Jamie to be replaced by accountant Jason Rubin as the conservator of her estate.
Jodi Montgomery, who is the conservator of Britney’s person, later filed her own motion in support of Britney’s request to have Rubin on her team instead of Jamie.
Britney’s attorney filed an emergency motion on Wednesday, August 4, to move up her previously set September 29 hearing. According to court documents, the “Lucky” singer is asking for the hearing to take place between August 23 and September 5. As an alternative, the musician requested that the judge immediately suspend Jamie and appoint Rubin as the conservator of her estate.
