Britney Spears' divorce lawyers, the firm of Trope and Trope, filed papers requesting to be removed as counsel. A hearing is scheduled for March 10.
Britney's parents, Lynne and Jamie, were not fans. Trope and Trope bad a good relationship with Sam Lutfi, so that's a big reason why.
Could this be the first step in the process to re-retain Laura Wasser, Britney's former attorney who quit, and who Jamie reportedly wants back?
We'll have to stay tuned, but TMZ reports that one of the things that went down in Thursday's hearing involving Britney's conversatorship is that the commissioner granted the conservators the power to fire her manager.
That being Howard Grossman.
Jamie Spears, with his attorney Andrew Wallet, is the legal conservator of Britney and her estate. While she is receiving treatment for her mental problems, Jamie may regulate her legal, business and medical decisions.
Firing Howard Grossman apparently is first on his to-do list.
Although the firing hasn't gone down yet, it wasn't hard to see coming as Grossman has a cozy relationship with Sam Lutfi - something we all know makes Britney Spears' family (and us, for that matter) extremely uncomfortable.
After hearing startling testimony from Lynne Spears that Sam Lutfi drugged and abused Britney, a restraining order was issued against him. However, the seedy confidant has yet to be formally served with the legal papers.
