Britney Spears’ mom is now asking to be informed of updates in her conservatorship case after the singer’s controversial rehab stint in April, RadarOnline.com can confirm.
In court papers obtained from Los Angeles County Superior Court, an attorney for Lynne filed a Request for Special Notice on Monday, May 6.
“I request special notice of all matters for which special notice may be requested,” the court papers read.
Lynne has hired Yasha Bronshteyn, a high-powered attorney who specializes in conservatorships.
As Radar readers know, Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, has been in control of her conservatorship ever since her 2007 mental breakdown.
Britney, 37, checked into a mental wellness center in April amid her father’s health troubles. Jamie recently underwent a second surgery to repair a ruptured colon.
While in rehab, worried fans started the hashtag #FreeBritney in an effort to raise awareness and save the star. Britney’s mom “liked” several of the #FreeBritney posts on Instagram.
Britney was released after doctors were able to “stabilize her medication.”
The Blast, who was the first to report on the filing, claimed Lynne filed the notice to be more proactive in the conservatorship. She has not filed to be a co-conservator.
As Radar reported, loved ones don’t believe Britney is ready to end her conservatorship.
“Britney’s friends and some of her family members are worried over these upcoming conservator hearings because they really believe that a judge is going to take the fact that she was just released from a mental health facility into account,” a source told Radar. “Unfortunately for Britney, that kind of goes to show that she is not ready to handle her life under her own terms.”
The 'Gimme More' singer's conservatorship is to be discussed before a judge on Friday, May 10.
