Britney Spears is having another conservatorship hearing on Wednesday, 29 September 2021, at Stanley Mosk Courthouse in LA by 1:30 p.m. PT/4:30 p.m. ET.
This is what to expect from the hearing …
Fans of the superstar singer have been crying “Free Britney” at a deafening pitch. Hence Britney Spears will have another day in court — and a pivotal one to enable her to break free from the conservatorship she’s been in since 2008.
For the hearing, there are several items on the docket, but the top of it is the removal of the star’s father, Jamie Spears, as conservator of her estate. Jamie, on the other hand, also wants the conservatorship to end.
However, if the box of his removal gets checked, there will be the appointment of a temporary conservator to replace him. Britney’s attorney Mathew Rosengart wants the replacement to be certified public accountant John Zabel.

Rosengart has made it clear that his primary goal is removing Jamie, who Britney has accused of conservator abuse. However, it is not expected that the conservatorship will end on Wednesday, 29 September 2021.
Speaking with Yahoo Entertainment, California-based family law attorney Christopher C. Melcher of Walzer Melcher says: “I don’t believe the conservatorship will terminate on 29 September. Britney’s lawyer is saying she’s in favor of terminating the conservatorship, but there are loose ends that need to be dealt with. Rosengart wants it to wind down rather than just end abruptly.”
Speaking further, he explains the reasons Jamie Spears wants the conservatorship over his daughter, Britney Spears, to come to an end. He says: “Most importantly, Jamie wants the conservatorship to terminate so that all of the communications that he’s had with the attorneys for the conservatorship would remain privileged.
“Basically, everything Jamie has done since the conservatorship was put in place in 2008 was done in a representative capacity. That includes hiring the lawyers — and communicating with lawyers. In a normal attorney-client relationship, it’s the individual client talking to the lawyer, and all of the communications are privileged forever.
“But here, Jamie is acting on behalf of the conservatorship when he hired these lawyers and acting on behalf of the conservatorship when he spoke to them. Therefore, if he is replaced and a new person is installed as a temporary conservator, that person then holds this privilege and would have the right to demand — and would get — all of the files for the last 13 years between Jamie and the attorneys that Jamie probably thought would never see the light of day. And those attorneys probably thought would always be kept secret but now could be revealed.”
So, besides removing the singer’s father, her lawyer also wants to know what he has been doing all these years.
