Britney Spears’ new lawyer Mathew S. Rosengart has filed a petition with the court to remove her father Jamie Spears from heading up her controversial conservatorship, as The New York Times reports. Rosengart was approved as Spears’ lawyer earlier this month, following the resignation of court-appointed lawyer Samuel D.

Britney Spears’ battle to be released from her conservatorship is still ongoing.

Laroi, my colleague Tom Breihan argued, was analogous to his fellow Australians Silverchair, the teenage rock band that showed up on MTV a year after Kurt Cobain died, marking the point when grunge had become completely commodified.

For one thing, a feature by Ronan Farrow and Jia Tolentino in The New Yorker indicated that the night before her incendiary courtroom testimony — in which she called for an end to the “abusive” conservatorship that has controlled her business and personal life since 2008 — Spears called 911 to report herself the victim of conservatorship abuse. There have been more official developments as well.
