Rosengart called for Britney’s father to voluntarily step down, but his attorney said that wasn’t going to happen.
The singer said she wants to retain Jodi Montgomery as her personal conservator.
Britney Spears was placed in conservatorship in 2008 after the singer experienced mental-health issues. The singer had called the conservatorship abusive during a June 2020 hearing.
"I’m not lying, I just want my life back," Spears told the Los Angeles Superior Court judge, Brenda Penny, in a virtual court during the June hearing. "I want to end the conservatorship without being evaluated."
