Time for your morning Britney Spears news update – legal style.
Jamie Spears’ attorney and Britney Spears’ co-conservator, Andrew Wallet, met for a closed-door session. Discussing what? We’re not sure.
A court spokesperson said everything about yesterday’s matter is sealed, and he could not disclose even why they were even in court.
We had speculated that Jamie was seeking help from the court in enforcing his legal control over Britney, who he feels was released too soon from UCLA.
Meanwhile, Laura Wasser, Brit’s former attorney, paid a visit to the UCLA psych ward last Tuesday and it looks like she may be retained again.
Laura Wasser represented Britney Spears in her divorce from Kevin Federline, but ended up quitting the case. Several accounts say this was because Britney wouldn’t listen to her. But now, Jamie and Lynne Spears want her back.
Laura Wasser, Britney Spears’ former lawyer, may be retained by Jamie Spears, who hates that Britney’s current legal team is so tight with Osama “Sam” Lutfi.
Britney’s parents, particularly Jamie (who is still her co-conservator) want to axe Trope and Trope as Britney’s legal counsel, in part because they have been chummy with the family’s nemesis, Brit’s BFF Sam Lutfi.
According to witnesses at UCLA, Britney “lit up” when she saw Wasser. But there’s a hitch – Britney can’t fight the conservatorship, which gives Jamie control of her estate as she is treated for bipolar disorder.
As of Tuesday, she was fine letting Jamie call the shots, but it looks like that’s changed. If Britney accepts the conservatorship and Jamie is at the reins, Laura Wasser could be back in the Britney Spears business.
Meanwhile, Sam Lutfi has not been served with the restraining order sought and obtained by Britney Spears’ parents – yet.
If he comes in contact with her, it technically wouldn’t violate the order issued against him – since he hasn’t officially been given notice.
It’s a technicality, yes, but Sam Lutfi could (and likely will) argue that he doesn’t know about the thing since he hasn’t even seen it.
