Conservators to Dump Brit's Manager!

2/8/2008 10:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsTMZ has confirmed that one of the things that went down in yesterday's hearing involving Britney's conversatorship is that the commissioner granted the conservators the power to fire her manager, Howard Grossman.

Court documents reveal that Commissioner Reva Goetz ordered Howard Grossman to turn over "all documents, records and assets relating to Britney Spears" to Brit's dad, Jamie, who along with attorney Andrew Wallet, is the court-appointed conservator of Brit and her estate.

Though the firing hasn't gone down yet, we're guessing the reason Brit's fam wants him out is because Grossman has a very cozy relationship with Sam Lutfi -- something that makes Brit's family very uncomfortable.

Britney only has bipolar illness. She is not hopelessly insane or forever incompetent. More than 6 million Americans are being treated for bipolar illness and the vast majority of them are completely competent and productive citizens living a normal life. What this court is allowing with this "temporary" conservatorship must be scaring the blazes out of the millions of people who have bipolar disease, allowing conservators to alter personal business affairs that was in place long before the temporary conservatorship was ordered. This has got to send shock waves through the business world and set the rights of people with bipolar illness back to the dark ages. After this, what business would not think long and hard about entering into a contract with a person known to have bipolar illness, not knowing whether or not the contract is legally binding and cannot be breached by an incompetency claim or invalidated by an unhappy conservator that might arise when a person with bipolar illness might have a short period of incompetency? And the many wealthy professional people who have bipolar illness, people like U.S. Congressman Patrick Kennedy, actor Jean-Claude Van Damme, actress Carrie Fisher, and journalist Jane Pauley, all of which have had a period or more of intense psychiatric treatment, what must they think might happen to their rights if they suffer a short relapse of symptoms and enter a psychiatric care facility for treatment? What this court is doing to Britney is despicable. The goal of this court, where business matters, contracts and financial affairs are concerned, should be to maintain the existing state of affairs that was in place before Britney was adjudicated temporarily incompetent. This is shameful and it is going to be damaging to the legal rights and lawful business affairs of all people who have bipolar illness.

Britney is NOT just bipolar. She has given bipolars a bad name. I dont see how u can defend her. This should be a chance to educate people about mental illness. She is an attention-seeking spoiled rich incompetent brat who has never had to live in the real world because everyone has caterred to her every need and gives her everything she wants.

Calling Britney just bipolar is like calling Osama Bin Laden just a little depressed because he had a bad childhood.

Sorry, but washing down a handful of valium with four double vodkas doesn't make her bi-polar. It simply proves her trailer-trash nature. This fading star gets dimmer by the day. If still alive in ten years, she'll be a forgotten bag lady.

Another one bites the dust!
Good for daddy Spears!
Mom Lynne is useless, except to live off her children.
Shouldn't children be taken care of by the parent(s)? All she has done is exploit her kids.
Now she wants to ADOPT Jamie-Lynns baby? Lord help Jamie Lynn and that child.

Keep getting Britney. Being Ill isn't fun but it can be managed. Hold tight.
