THE latest fight in Britney Spears' battle against her conservatorship is to ensure it ends without a mental health assessment.
Britney, 39, does not trust the doctors who have been assigned to her case over the years believing they have "failed" her.
"She doesn't have much trust for the doctors that she has worked with so far," a source told People.
"She feels like they have failed her."
Britney slammed the whole conservatorship in a lengthy speech in court a on June 23.
She spoke for the first time in court amid her conservatorship legal battle with dad Jamie, who has "controlled" her life for the past 13 years.
The Toxic singer made a number of shocking claims during the hearing, including that she was allegedly not allowed to get married and forced to get an IUD she cannot take out to have another baby.
But any petition to end the strict conservatorship could be delayed after her lawyer, Sam Ingham, resigned from his role as her conservatorship lawyer after 13 years in the job.
According to TMZ, Sam is “extremely upset” with how Britney spoke about everything, including his handling of her case, during her court appearance last month.
He's reportedly planning to file a request to be let go from his court-appointed position as the pop star's legal counsel.
Britney claimed she wasn't told about all of her options regarding the guardianship, including how to request that it should end, but sources told the outlet Sam claimed the opposite.
The insiders alleged he often told her all of her options about trying to end her dad Jamie Spears' conservatorship over her but she was the one who didn't want to request for it to end just yet.
Two insiders told Page Six that Britney “reiterated” to Sam “multiple times” after her court hearing that she wanted him to “file the paperwork to end her conservatorship.”
A source added that it’s now been a couple weeks and “Britney doesn’t understand what the holdup is.”
The insider continued: “She feels she made it crystal clear in court that she wants the conservatorship terminated, but nearly two weeks later, she’s still waiting for the petition to be filed.”
Sam is just the latest resignation among Britney's team, as her longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, quit earlier this week.
According to Deadline, Larry broke the news in a latter to Britney’s co-conservators Jamie Spears and the court-appointed Jodi Montgomery on Monday.
He wrote: “It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus.
“Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.”
Larry added: “As her manager, I believe it is in Britney’s best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed.”
“I will always be incredibly proud of what we accomplished over our 25 years together."
