Dogfight in Court Tomorrow Over Brit

2/3/2008 8:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned tomorrow is shaping up to be an all-out war in the Britney Spears conservatorship case. Sources say lawyers for Britney will try to convince the Commissioner that Britney "feels hatred" toward her dad, doesn't trust him and wants him removed as co-conservator.

Here's the way it's gone down this weekend. Yesterday, a lawyer for Trope and Trope (Brit's divorce/custody attorneys) went to UCLA to visit Britney. After being there a short time, one of the staff doctors asked the attorney to leave, because the co-conservators objected to the visit.

Sources say tomorrow, Trope and Trope will appear at the court hearing. Along with attorney Adam Streisand, who specializes in estate law, and ask that both co-conservators be removed. They will argue that the appointment of Jamie in particular is inappropriate given Britney's bitter feelings toward him and that Britney wants him out.

On Friday, the Commish appointed Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet as co-conservators. Trope lawyers and Streisand will ask that both conservators be replaced.

Sources say the Trope firm will not object to a conservatorship for Britney, but they'll ask that a different conservator be appointed. We're told the Trope lawyers and Streisand have not finalized who they want to replace the current conservators.

I agree with most everyone here - it is time she learned the word "NO". No - you cant do everything you want, have all the "bad" friends that you want and ignore your kids like you want. Her father seems to have the most sense out of the entire family and I think he is disgusted with the way she has been acting. I mean, come on, she is NOT a child and has been acting like a spoiled brat for quite some time. Grow up Brittney - your Daddy is taking over now, something you needed a LONG TIME AGO !!!!! I hope she has absolutely no choice in the matter - they sit back and watch the temper tantrums she throws!!!!!!

I guess that Sam Lufti's getting nervous about not being able to loot any more of Brit's money. Gee, Sam, there's always work as a bag boy...

in Britney's condition at the moment, she is in no way able to make a sound judgement regarding any legal issue, medical treatment or immediate financial decision. She needs a little more sedation so she will shut up and get with the program!

Leave it alone. Let her dad remain her guardian at least for now. Britney is too sick to know what she is saying when she says she hates her dad. That's her disease talking - not her. Her dad was right in getting Sam Lufti away from her. He's a slime bucket and so is that nasty looking boyfriend.

Britney is not in any shape to decide anything at this point. We
can't even be sure that she really hates her father or have
her so-called friends tried to turn her against her family so
that they can gain control. Someone
must protect her children's interest in all of this and Britney is
not capable at this time.

YES - Jamie can fire any one he wants before this starts! He hates the lawyers - as they are only in for the money. Remember they tried to disassociate from Brit months ago - NOW - $$$ speaks volums! Such bastards they are. I am all for Jamie keeping control as he had right now. He has half control - as there is another that must also agree with whatever he does. He is the LAST person to take money from her. She hates him? T.S. Kiddo! He is your father. Hate your slut mother - but your Dad is protecting YOU and the kids. Looking at Jamie's clothes - looks like Goodwill is his shop. Nothing wrong with THAT. MY shop, too.

Here we go again! It is time for Britney to get well. As for her parents, I am sickened by the fact that they have not paid attention to their daughter's downward spiral since she shaved her head over a year ago! I think they have failed miserably as parents and should be totally ashamed of their selves. Where were they? Where was this brother and sister Jamie Lynn? I am just appalled at this family and think they need to be removed from the situation. Britney has enough money that the courts can set up a court appointed outside party that will actually work for Britneys' best interest. She is going to have a long recovery and a lot can happen in that time and the battle will just go on and on for Britney's money and estate. Right now the focus should be on Britney and getting well. As much as I personally do not like Ms. Spears I see a very disfunctional family in every aspect. Britney's mother is the worst and should be in a pysch ward too. Both her daughter's have failed miserably and you have to look at the mother's role as a parent. She is a a total wreck herself. Shame on Britney's family!

I thought that Jamie could hire/fire anyone...I'd get rid of them (Trope and Trope).. They wanted to dump her like a hot potato when it was dealing with her custody.. Now all of a sudden they want to fight..

It probably all has to do with Snake Sam Lutfi...

What a nice comment. That lends so much credibility to your posts.

All speculation but I'm guessing the reason the lawyers were kicked out is they weren't there to discuss the divorce. They probably got in the door that way but then started selling her on additional representation. They only care about the billing. The more they represent her, the more money they make. They could care less about her (or her sons) wellbeing.

I hope the judge is reminded that this firm was attempting to quit before they saw the opportunity to make more money of Britney.

And if the stories are true that Sam The Loser is buddy-buddy with them then all the more reason they should be fired.

By the time all this is over Britney will have to declare bankruptcy. Between her so called "boyfriends", teams of lawyers, friends and family all wanting a piece of the pie as well as all the reckless, impulsive spending Britney herself has done there won't be much left. All her work and nothing to show for it. Her children don't even have a trust fund with money put aside for their college education. Everyone loses and Britney most of all because she has not obtained medical treatment years ago and has no one to really look out for her interests. It's a no-win situation.

should have been standing orders who can visit and who can't,how come they are allowed to pressure her,i agree with previous people about people being pressured in the psych ward,she probably doesn't think so but it should be immediate family only.just my opinion
