Over the weekend, The New Yorker ran an exposé questioning Ingham's motives in the conservatorship case.

As they pointed out, Spears pays his annual salary of $527,000, which is more than she spends on her own living expenses. In 2019, she paid $438,360 on herself.

Despite his huge salary, Ingham is reportedly ending his relationship with Spears because he's upset with what she told the judge in court.

That wasn't the only bombshell that Rudolph dropped. He also revealed Spears wants to officially retire, pointing out there's no use for him if she's not performing.

Spears spoke out about her conservatorship for the first time nearly two weeks ago.

She accused her dad and team of forcing her to perform. She also said everyone involved in her conservatorship "should be in jail."

The most shocking claim Spears made is that she doesn't have control over her body.

The singer told the judge she wants to get married and have more kids but claims Jamie Spears refuses to let her remove the IUD from her body.

“I was told right now, in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby,” Spears said during the June hearing.

"I have an IUD inside of myself right now, so I don’t get pregnant," Spears explained. "I wanted to take the IUD out, so I could start trying to have another baby, but the so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out, because they don’t want me to have any more children."
