Since the conservatorship started in 2008, the 39-year-old Spears has had the same court-appointed attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III. Ingraham, on the other hand, resigned after her stunning testimony last month.
On July 14, Spears spoke to the court over the phone for the second time in less than a month, this time criticizing her father, Jamie Spears, who is the custodian of his daughter’s estate. Spears has sought for his removal from the conservatorship on many occasions, and on Wednesday she accused him of “abuse.”
Spears claimed her “so-called support system” wounded her profoundly in a series of Instagram postings over the weekend.
“There’s nothing worse than when those closest to you who have never been up for you post things on social media about your issue, whatever it is, and speak righteously for support,” she wrote.
Jamie Lynn Spears, her sister, was also chastised for singing one of her songs at an awards ceremony.
Spears stated, “I don’t enjoy that my sister came up at an awards event and sang MY SONGS to remixes.”
Spears also said that she would not perform again while her estate is under the conservatorship of her father.
Spears slammed everyone engaged in her conservatorship in her virtual testimony on June 23, accusing them of abusing her, forcing her to perform against her will, and forcing her to take medicines she didn’t want and attend rigorous therapy sessions.

In reaction to the evidence, a financial management firm that had just joined Spears’ estate as a co-conservator requested the court to terminate its involvement.
Larry Rudolph, Spears’ longtime manager, also quit. Rudolph said that he and Spears haven’t spoken in over a year and a half.
Lynne Spears, Spears’ mother, recently filed documents in favor of her daughter’s desire to employ her own lawyer.
Jamie Spears recently filed court documents requesting the court to look into his daughter’s claims of abuse by individuals engaged in the conservatorship “to determine what remedial measures, if any, are required.”
Meanwhile, Jodi Montgomery, Spears’ personal conservator, claims in court papers that since the singer appeared in court on June 23 and slammed the conservatorship and most of the people involved with it, Montgomery has received a “marked increase” in threats via social media, text messages, phone calls, and emails.
Sheriff Alex Villanueva of Los Angeles says his deputies will not enforce the mask mandate.
