Britney Spears former lawyer, Adam Streisand, has shared his opinions on how well he thinks her current attorney is handling the pop stars current conservatorship battle.
Thanks to an exclusive from Us Weekly, we have the full scoop!
The Court Case
Britney Spears is battling her father, Jamie Spears, in court. She wants to have him removed as the conservator of her person and of her estate.
The court case has emerged from a legal arrangement that has left Spears with almost no control of her money or personal affairs for 13 years.
‘Framing Britney Spears’
An episode of the FX documentary series, The New York Times Presents, titled ‘Framing Britney Spears’ premiered on February 5th 2021. It focuses on the ongoing conservatorship battle between the “…Baby One More Time” singer and her father, Jamie Spears.
It is now streaming on Hulu for anyone interested in watching it. The film has encouraged #FreeBritney activists to continue calling for a change in regards to the legal arrangement.
Streisand Speaks About Ingham
After appearing in the documentary, Spears former lawyer Adam Streisand (who she almost retained in 2008) spoke exclusively to Us Weekly. He mentioned a meeting with Britney in which the conclusion was made “that she was capable” of choosing her own counsel.
However, after evaluating her private medial report, the judge decided to have Samuel D. Ingham III represent Britney Spears in court.
During the exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Streisand said “She didn’t want her father [Jamie Spears] controlling her life. It was her own request. I tried to advocate for her.”
Streisand then went on to question Sam Ingham’s handling of the case, “Why did it take Sam Ingham 12 years? If the judge thought she should have a different lawyer, fine. Be an advocate for your client, man. It’s the damn job.”
No Appearance From Ingham
Us Weekly requested a comment from Ingham but he did not respond. He also did not appear in “Framing Britney Spears.”
Jamie Spears’ Opinion
We know from an Us Weekly source that Jamie thinks the documentary is “another example of them being painted as money-grabbing villains when all they’re doing — so they say — is trying to help Britney run her life and stay in a safe place.”
Despite this, Britney’s inner circle strongly believe that the documentary is right to be aired. According to the Us Weekly insider they, “think it’s high time this extremely sad and confusing story was aired.”
Meanwhile, Britney Spears fans are continuing to show her their full support during the conservatorship case.
