Britney Spears is asking for a chance to speak with the judge in charge of her ongoing conservatorship battle against her father Jamie Spears

The 39-year-old star's lawyer relayed the message to the judge in court on Tuesday, revealing the Oops!... I Did It Again singer has something to say about her 13-year conservatorship. 

The Grammy winner has never personally asked the judge to pull the plug on her conservatorship but this could be the move the #FreeBritney movement has been anxiously waiting for. 

Interestingly enough, the latest revelation comes just days after her mother Lynne Spears went to bat for her daughter over the singer's finances.

As Radar reported, Lynne filed documents demanding that Britney's dad pay back the thousands of dollars he spent in the messy legal battle with their mega-famous spawn.

In court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Lynne made the bold move to object Jamie's $890,000 in legal fees from the law firm Holland & Knight that has been accumulating since October 2020. 

According to the documents, which were filed last week, Britney Spears' mom believes the amount of money her ex-husband's attorneys requested is "procedurally and substantively improper.”

Lynne also stated that she feels the law firm's services were not “performed in good faith for the benefit” of the I'm a Slave 4 U singer. She argues that because of that, Jamie's lawyers do not deserve their “utterly excessive” compensation.

Lynne is demanding the court review the billing and $224,000 of that money -- which was set aside for press communication -- be "immediately repaid" to her daughter's estate.  

Lynne alleges that Holland & Knight billed 628 hours of work when only 385 hours had been approved and claims Jamie's law firm cost “$200,000 more than all of other law firms combined for whom fee applications were filed, largely for similar work done” during the exact same four-month period. 

Lynne's filing comes just weeks after Britney Spears' lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham III, submitted a petition to the Los Angeles Superior Court asking for Jodi Montgomery to take over Jamie's role as sole conservatorship of the star.
