Britney Spears Expected In Court To Stop Her Dad From Being Her Legal Guardian

Britney Spears is expected to show up in court Wednesday for a conservatorship battle.

Sources with direct knowledge told TMZ, Britney’s mom, Lynne, will ask the judge to terminate Britney’s dad, Jamie as Britney’s legal guardian. Currently, Britney’s care manager, Jodi Montgomery, is the temporary conservator upon Jamie’s wishes, and he’s expected to retake the reins on January 20.

Lynne thinks Jamie is no longer fit to continue in that role. A critical piece of evidence is expected to be unveiled during the hearing, the report by a court-appointed evaluator who spent months gathering evidence on the care Britney has received. The evaluator looked at Britney’s primary doctor, Dr. Timothy Benson, who died unexpectedly on August 24, suddenly at age 48.

The evaluator put Dr. Benson and Jamie under a microscope, but so far it appears only the judge knows what’s in the report. The good news for Jamie is the D.A. just rejected a child abuse case against him for the August 24 altercation he had with Britney’s eldest son, 14-year-old Sean. The bad news for Jamie is he’s still under a restraining order that prohibits her from having any contact with either of Britney’s 2 children.

And, there’s more bad news for Jamie, Britney’s furious at him over his confrontation with Sean where he allegedly laid hands on him. According to sources Britney hasn’t spoken to Jamie since the incident. There’s a “strong likelihood” Britney will show up in court and support Lynne, with whom she’s gotten close with over the last 6 months.
