According to TMZ, Britney’s lawyer, Sam Ingham, filed for the court to relieve Jaime of his role in the conservatorship stretching 13 years and be replaced by Bessemer Trust as the sole conservator. The same request was made and denied in November. The financial institution did, however, become a co-conservator in February, with equal power over Britney’s finances, according to Entertainment Tonight Online.

The latest request by Britney’s lawyer was made on the 25th, after testimony, according to TMZ, in which Britney addressed her conservatorship for the first time publicly since its temporary-turned-permanent inception in 2008.

In court last week, Britney pleaded to be released from the chains of her conservatorship immediately. Conservatorship is a legal arrangement routinely reserved for those who suffer debilitating conditions, which include severe mental issues or old age. Britney was placed under the conservatorship after a public mental breakdown in 2008. Ever since, her family has dictated how her money is spent, where she lives, who she sees, and the medical professionals who treat her.

“After I’ve lied and told the whole world ‘I’m okay, and I’m happy,’ it’s a lie,” Spears told the L.A. judge. “I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in hock. I am traumatized… I’m not happy, I can’t sleep. I’m so angry it’s insane, and I’m depressed. I cry every day.”

Britney also charged her family with placing her on forced birth control in the form of an IUD.

“I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” she said. “But [my team doesn’t] want me to have any more children.”

Instead, Britney said she had been forced to work a grueling schedule to grow her estate to a Forbes-estimated net-worth of $60 million, money she has no control over.

“I worked seven days a week,
