Los Angeles (Reuters) -Britney Spears lawyer has asked a Los Angeles court to appoint a new guardian to oversee the finances of pop singers. She received recent testimony that she wanted to expel her father from that role, the reported on Monday.
Attorney Matthew Rosengart requested that accountant Jason Rubin be appointed as the guardian of Spears’ property in a court filing, according to The Times.
According to the newspaper, Rosengart also petitioned to remove Jamie Spears as a guardian, but the document was not published.
Britney Spears recently told the court that he would soon take his father away and prosecute him for abuse of adult guardianship.
At the age of 39, she was put under custody in 2008 after suffering a mental health collapse, managing both her personal and financial problems. Details of her mental health issues have not been revealed.
Public support for the singer has grown since she gave an emotional speech to the court in June, calling the power of attorney abusive and humiliating.
Representatives of Rosengart and Jamie Spears did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
