A judge allowed it Britney Spears hiring a lawyer of his choice on Wednesday, he broke down in tears after describing his “cruelty”. conservatory.
Los Angeles Supreme Court Judge Brenda Penny agreed to hire former federal prosecutor Spears Mathew Rosengart, and asked Spears’ father to resign his conservative immediately.
“The question remains, why is he involved,” Rosengart said outside the courthouse.
Britney Spears, speaking at the hearing over the phone, told the judge that she accepted Rosengart after several interviews with him. He then asked the court to address him, but asked him to clean the room.
When Rosengart began advocating for private hearing, Spears interrupted by saying “I can speak openly.”
“My father needs to be removed today,” he said, adding that he would like to see his position accused of abuse.
He spoke so quickly that it was sometimes difficult to understand court journalists and dozens of forensic media outlets.
He said he wanted the Conservative to end immediately, but not if “more stupid” assessments were needed. He said he didn’t want any other option “to make people question my mind a million times.”
The Conservative said they are as basic as coffee, a driver’s license and “hair vitamins”.
“If this isn’t abuse, I don’t know what it is,” Spears said.
He recalled that in his early years at the conservatory “I thought they were trying to kill me” he was doing too much work and was constantly studying.
When she felt abandoned with her family she started sobbing as she was talking about taking comfort to a therapy dog.
James Spears would not resign as Rosengart sued, Vivan Thoreen’s lawyer said in court, adding that she had only the best interests of her daughter.
Thoreen said Britney Spears had many misconceptions, including that she was “responsible for all the bad things that happened to her father.”
“I don’t know if it’s misinformation, lack of correction, or misadvising,” Thoreen said.
Thoreen points out that for almost two years James Spears has had sole control over his daughter’s money, giving her power over her life options to a professional appointed by Jodi Montgomery in court.
Thoreen argued that a hearing of the evidence was necessary to investigate allegations made at the June 23 session of Britney Spears, including that she was forced to take medication and use an internal uterine device to control birth.
Thoreen said it’s weird that Britney Spears described these circumstances, calling the pop star “abusive,” then allowing Montgomery to continue as her supervisor.
Montgomery’s attorney, Lauriann Wright, responded by putting the last thing Britney Spears needed to stand up and examine the truth of what she said in her emotional testimony.
“I don’t think it’s a secret to deal with someone with a mental illness,” Wright said.
Wright added, “His medical team recommends that his father, Mr. Spears, be at the conservatory.”
Britney Spears has been under court supervision since February 2008. He was in a public disarray at the time and his family sought out a conservative for his protection.
He has had a lawyer appointed by Judge Samuel Ingham III throughout the proceedings, but resigned three weeks ago after a dramatic hearing from the pop star told Penny, “I want my life back.”
Outside the court, fans of the #FreeBritney movement were delighted with the decision to name Rosengart, after which Rosengart himself was encouraged to take to the streets.
In court, he questioned whether the Conservative should ever be placed, and said he and a group of lawyers in his firm would look into the details of the deal.
“This doesn’t work,” Rosengart said. “We know that.”
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz made a brief appearance outside the downtown Los Angeles courthouse addressing Spears supporters, and at one point “Free Britney!” He shouted.
In Washington, DC, a group in favor of Spears held a demonstration at the National Mall in support of the singer.
The case has been running for a few years with little drama, though in recent years its length and how the singer’s feelings about the procedure came about. Due to the medical and private information about the lawyer and his condition, this has ended in a lively public examination of the secret court proceedings.
Attention has also been paid to the complex network of lawyers and others involved in the conservatory.
Penny again gave little indication of the next move, arranging another hearing in late September and noted that conflict groups will find common ground in favor of Britney Spears.
“Everyone should work together,” the judge said. “It’s not anyone else’s, it’s his.”
