Brit's Manager Allegedly Uses Mercedes Ploy

2/11/2008 7:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

New documents were filed in the Brit conservatorship hearing last Thursday -- and now we know why the conservators want to give Brit's business manager the ax.

Lawyers for the conservators accused business manager Howard Grossman of ignoring their ground rules. One lawyer wrote in a declaration that she told Grossman "he was not permitted to give Britney any money, credit cards, or access to money or credit cards or to meet with Britney ... at the Beverly Hills Hotel or anywhere else."

The lawyer claims Grossman defied the order by meeting Brit at the Bev Hills Hotel last week. The lawyer, Jeryll Cohen, is pissed off because Grossman also directed Bev Hills Mercedes to deliver one of Britney's cars to the hotel without first getting the conservators' permission. Cohen says Grossman's lame excuse was that "he wanted to build her [Brit's] confidence in him."

Isn't this the guy who's always on CNN Showbiz Tonight? His company is 15 Minutes or something like that.

The creep knew about the conservatorship, and he knew about the specifics regarding him. He defied not only the courts decision, but blatantly and knowingly went against the wishes of the co-conservators. Moron.

I believe that she is on drugs...this bi polar etc story is just a cover up. Instead of telling the media she is hooked on every drug immaginable they are now calling it bi polar to show face. Thats why UCLA never kept her for long....there was no medical condition....she needs to go into rehab. I love you Britney but you need to get better in order to see your babies. Stay away from that stuff it will just kill you....peace out
