The new lawyer of the American pop singer Britney Spears, who has been under the guardianship of her father Jamie for the last 13 years, demanded that he be removed as conservator and transfer control of the singer's finances to a professional auditor - Jason Rubin. If the request is granted, Rubin will receive financial authority to manage Britney's money flows, as well as a power of attorney to make decisions related to the singer's health.

Former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart who joined Britney Spears’ team on July 14, wants the Court to take into account the testimony that the singer's medical team has advised his removal in favor of her emotional well-being.

The application came two weeks after Rosengart became Britney's lawyer.

James Spears ' lawyer team has repeatedly denied any claims of wrongdoing. The hearing in the case is set for September 29.

Spears senior has been controlling most aspects of his daughter's life since 2008 when a court established custody because of the singer's psychological problems and the loss of custody of her children. Besides, he has fully controlled all the money that Britney earns, with making financial decisions, along with the performances, records, tours, shows, and personal meetings matters. Also, the lawyer noticed that Jamie Spears is actively gaining income from his daughter's property as he receives a salary of $16,000 a month and takes fees for her enforced contracts.
