There is a court update in the ongoing Britney Spears conservatorship case, keeping this unusual legal arrangement in the headlines.
What’s new? In this most recent recent development, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge rejected a request from Britney’s lawyer to remove the singer’s father as conservator of her estate, despite claims that with Jamie Spears in charge, the singer felt unable to return to work.
