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 think Britney feels hatred for anyone who doesn't tell her what she wants to hear.

I have children and hope some day that I never have to do what her parents have had to do. There are no perfect answers here. We have not seen any evidence that her father is a horrible person, no parent is perfect. Some of course are better than others. We thought Brittney was a horrible mother and she really was mentally ill. Give the parents a chance there is another person unrelated to the case involved making decisions. Go Jamie Spears!!!!

Trope and Trope concidentally are Sam Lufti lawyers - Gee I wonder who put them up to this. They should be fired now.
The Judge will see through this and not change things. Otherwise, the Judge is as dumb as a doorknob.

Maybe it is tough love by Jamie, but he is not a CA resident, he is on the side of KFED, has no job and has another daughter that is on serious problems. It has been proven that Lynnie and Jamie really have other things going on that make them just not capable. The Court should appoint neutral people and really listen to Britney's on-going concerns. She has had no voice and it is about time a Commish give her one. Someone needs to be involved that isn't in it for Britney's money and is going to ask for their fees out of her success. If Jamie is an alcoholic that is also a conflict that all should look at as well.

Ahh...biggest point is she is on a 14 day because she REFUSED voluntary treatment. That's the only way you get a 5250 (14 day). After being informed of her choices, she refused to continue with a voluntary evaluation and treatment and her psychiatrist evaluated her as either a danger to herself, others or continuing gravely disabled. GD means she is unable to make basic decisions much less a complex one like who should be her conservator.

I think the reason you saw Jamie Spears so redeyed is that he is aware that they will need to institutionalize Britney and involuntarily medicate her. She isn't ever getting off the meds and she isn't ever going to be like she was.

She's never going to be happy that someone, anyone, else has control of her life and her only choice to regain control is a heavy duty regimen of drugs and therapy.

It's over.

Thank goodness, I hope she listens to her family now, all those other people just want her money and to be part in her fame.

Britney feels hatred towards her dad because she is not well. One of the symptoms of bipolar disorder is destroyed relationships, which explains why she destroyed all her relationship with her family and management.

This is more manufactured crap by this website, and they have been doing a lot of it lately. NONE of this is believable. For this website to get the information they claim to have, both medical professionals and attorneys would have to violate the law and their codes of ethics, either of which WOULD likely result in losing the license to practice their professions. Fools on this blog who believe this crap are just that - fools.

To answer the question, Trope and Trope has no standing to intervene, particularly if Jamie decides to fire them, which he can do.

Who cares about Sam? It is so paranoid. He is not an issue in any of this and should just move along for a year. It sounds like KFED iis very worried that Britney has people supporting her as they are certainly trying to isolate Britney. Trope and Trope are intelligent and educated people that have been in this case for a very long time.
