The former federal prosecutor who Britney Spears asked to represent her in her battle to end her conservatorship has agreed to take on the case.
According to sources, the pop star has decided to hire powerhouse attorney Mathew Rosengart. He is known for handling high-profile cases and has worked with everyone from Ben Affleck, Michael Mann, Keanu Reeves, Jimmy Butler, Steven Spielberg, Sean Penn, and countless others.
Last week, Britney filed a declaration in court telling the court once again, she wants her father Jamie axed as co-conservator and a new lawyer put in place.
She wrote, “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."
She signed the document with her full name, “Britney Jean Spears.”
Now, Rosengart has informed the court he is ready to take on the case.
The only issue is Britney is not technically allowed to hire a lawyer since she is under a conservatorship. Rosengart will reportedly argue that Britney has a constitutional right to hire her own counsel and entitled to due process.
Last month, Britney spoke to the judge presiding over her conservatorship and railed on everyone involved. She said her father loved to control her life and forced her to work.
The pop star accused her court-appointed lawyer of refusing to listen to her and never telling her she had the option to ask for the conservatorship to be terminated.
Her court-appointed lawyer, who was making a hefty annual salary paid for by Britney, recently said he wanted off the case. Britney wants to be free and made it crystal clear to the judge.
She said, “The main reason why I’m here is because I want to end the conservatorship without having to be evaluated. I’ve done a lot of research, ma’am. And there’s a lot of judges who do end conservatorships for people without them having to be evaluated all the time. The only times they don’t is if a concerned family member says something’s wrong with this person.”
Rosengart is expected to make his case tomorrow during the explosive hearing.
