Britney Spears Seeks To Hire Rumored Ex Ben Affleck's Hotshot Lawyer Mathew Rosengart To Represent Her In Conservatorship Battle
Britney Spears is seeking her one-time rumored hookup Ben Affleck's high-profile lawyer to represent her in her conservatorship battle.
Sources confirm to RadarOnline.com, the 39-year-old Grammy winner has reached out to Mathew Rosengart and wants him to take over where her former court-appointed attorney left off.
Spears filed a document expressing her desire to hire Rosengart. She also makes it clear that she believes retaining the hotshot attorney's services will finally put an end to her 13-year conservatorship.
"Pursuant to my statement in open court on June 23, 2021, my rights, and my desire to end the above-referenced conservatorship as to my father Jamie P. Spears, it is my desire to choose and retain my own counsel, at Greenberg, Traurig, LLP as set forth above," the document states.
She also signed the document with her full name, Britney Jean Spears.
Rosengart is a partner in his firm, and he's also a former federal prosecutor -- meaning, he knows what he's doing.
His impressive client list is miles long and includes A-listers like Steven Spielberg, Sean Penn, director Michael Mann, Eddie Vedder, Jimmy Butler, Affleck, and more.
It's an interesting connection considering Britney reportedly had a short fling with Affleck in the early 2000s.
The pop star and Oscar winner were allegedly caught making out at the Sunset Room nightclub in Hollywood during her Justin Timberlake days.

As RadarOnline.com reported, the singer's court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham resigned just days ago.
Ingham had represented Spears since the beginning of her conservatorship in 2008 but asked a judge to dismiss him from the case earlier this week.
He might have felt the heat after The New Yorker ran an explosive exposé questioning Ingham's motives in the conservatorship case.
As they pointed out, Spears paid him an annual salary of $527,000, which is more than she spends on her own living expenses. In 2019, she paid $438,360 on herself.
Ingham is said to be upset with the singer of what she told the judge in court.
Spears gave an emotional testimony and claimed she never knew she had the choice to end her conservatorship. Sources connected to Ingham dispute the star's claims.
He's not the only one who jumped ship recently.
The Lucky singer's longtime manager Larry Rudolph quit hours prior, revealing she no longer needs his services because she wants to retire from the industry.
