Britney Spears is 'hopeful conservatorship will be terminated' as multiple members resign from her team

BRITNEY Spears is “hopeful her conservatorship will be terminated.”

The 39-year-old’s optimistic outlook comes as multiple members have resigned from her team.



Britney’s longtime manager Larry Rudolph resigned from his position earlier this week, while her lawyer Samuel D. Ingham III asked to no longer represent her.

In light of the team members quitting, Britney reportedly thinks the 13-year long conservatorship may be coming to an end.

An insider told E! News: "She's finally feeling hopeful about the future.

"She thinks people are resigning because they know she is speaking the truth. She is relieved her attorney resigned and hopes that if she can pick her own lawyer, it means the judge is leaning towards terminating the conservatorship."

The source continued: "She's trying to be patient and see what happens. She is happy that things are starting to happen, and that the truth has finally come out."


Larry broke the news of his resignation in a letter to Britney’s co-conservators Jamie Spears and the court-appointed Jodi Montgomery on Monday.

He wrote: “It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus.

“Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.”

Larry added: “As her manager, I believe it is in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed.” 

After stating the letter was his “formal resignation,” he concluded: “I will always be incredibly proud of what we accomplished over our 25 years together.


“I wish Britney all the health and happiness in the world, and I’ll be there for her if she ever needs me again, just as I always have been.”

Larry worked as Britney’s main manager since the early years of her career, which began in the mid-1990s.

Sam also resigned from his position as her attorney earlier this week.

He had been the singer’s representative for 13 years.

TMZ reported that Sam is “extremely upset” with how Britney spoke about the conservatorship, including his handling of her case, during her court appearance in June.


Britney claimed she wasn't told about all of her options regarding the guardianship, including how to request that it should end, though sources told the outlet Sam claimed the opposite.

The insiders alleged he often told her all of her options about trying to end her dad Jamie Spears' conservatorship over her, though she never requested for it to end.

However, two insiders told Page Six that Britney “reiterated” to Sam “multiple times” after her court hearing that she wanted him to “file the paperwork to end her conservatorship.”

A source added that it’s now been a couple weeks and “Britney doesn’t understand what the holdup is.” 

Shortly after Sam resigned, Britney’s mother Lynne asked the court to appoint her daughter a private attorney in her bid to end her conservatorship.

In the paperwork, Lynne argued the conservatorship is no longer valid as it was established 13 years ago.

The legal docs read: "[Britney] had to perform in front of millions of people, has had to manage hundreds of performances, has had to use her artistic and creative talents to prepare for shows by choreographing each and every move for and interacting with many co-performers, and has had to rehearse and perform for many thousands of hours over the years."
