For the first time in 13 years, Britney Spears allowed to hire her own lawyer, accuses father of abuse

A judge has approved Britney Spears’ request to hire her own private counsel to represent her in her ongoing conservatorship case, after her court appointed attorney, Sam Ingham, tendered his resignation, NBC reports. Spears has already picked Matthew Rosengart, a go-to attorney for A-list clients. Spears appeared in court on Wednesday where she told Judge Penny that she was “extremely scared” of her father Jamie, who remains the sole overseer of the conservatorship. “This conservatorship has allowed my dad to ruin my life,” she said through tears. “I’m here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse.”
