This comes as Britney Spear's request to remove her father Jamie Spears from this "abusive" conservatorship was denied by a court in LA.
Following this, Spears has reportedly enlisted a list of music stars to help her to end this conservatorship. These stars have set up a "fighting fund" to support Britney's legal battle with this conservatorship.
Since the court case, both the singer's manager Larry Rudolph and her court appointed lawyer Samuel Ingham have resigned from their posts. Rudolph had been Spears' manager for 25 years.
Along with this, Britney's father Jamie is challenging co-conservator's Jodi Montgomery's request to increase their personal security budget following reported threats of "violence and even death".
Jamie Spears' legal documents read, “If the Court grants the Ex Parte Petition, it is anticipated that Ms. Montgomery will not be the only one requesting additional protection to be paid by the Conservatorship Estate,” Jamie’s legal challenge reads".
Jodi Montgomery had reportedly requested for “24/7 live security services” this week, which is challenged by Spear's lawyers as security is set to cost $50,000 (£36,276) "for an indefinite period of time".
A court petition has also been filed by Britney Spears' mother Lynne, to allow her daughter to choose her own lawyer.
