Britney Spears Officially Filed to Remove Her Father, Jamie, From Her Conservatorship

“Now, and for the past many years, Conservatee is able to care for her person and in fact has, within the parameters of this conservatorship, earned literally hundreds of millions of dollars as an international celebrity,” the petition states.

The filing was made one week after Britney’s testimony in which she asked for her nearly 13-year conservatorship to be terminated.

Jodi Montgomery claims Jamie Spears used his daughter’s money for his own defense.

In documents filed in Los Angeles court on July 9, per People, Britney’s personal conservator accused Jamie of taking “more than $2 million of his daughter’s money” to defend himself and remain in control of Britney’s estate. 

“It is ironic that Mr. Spears now wants the conservatorship to ‘reflect her wishes,’ since it is no secret that Ms. Spears has wished her father out of her life for years,” Montgomery’s lawyer Lauriann Wright also wrote in the document. Read more, here.

Britney is granted the right to hire her own attorney, demands her father’s removal from her conservatorship. 

“I’m here to get rid of my dad and charge him for conservatorship abuse,” she told a court on July 14, according to Variety. “I want to press charges for abuse on this conservatorship today…all of it.”

She continued, “I’m here now today, your honor, to remove my dad altogether.”

According to Variety, the pop icon told Judge Brenda Penny, who oversees her case, that she was made to take psych tests “against her will” during her Circus concert tour, which ran in 2009. She says she was told if she complied, her life would go back to normal. “I did it all and they lied…they did nothing,” Spears said. “They didn’t end it, and I kept working.” The singer added she doesn’t want people to “question my intelligence for the millionth time.”

Per Variety, Spears told the judge she’s not “perfect” but that her “episodes” stemmed from “what they did to me,” presumably referring to her conservators. “It was their goal to make me feel crazy, which I’m not.”

In her testimony, Spears also claimed her father got her driver’s license taken away, made sure she couldn’t drink coffee, controlled her diet, and took away her “pink hair vitamins.” “That’s not abuse. That’s just fucking cruelty,” she said. 

She also opened up a bit about her history with her father, saying, “I was always extremely scared of my dad and scared he was going to show up drunk somewhere.

“Instead of trying to investigate my behavior or my capacity, I want my dad investigated,” Spears said. “This conservatorship is literally allowing my dad to rule my life…. That is abuse, and we all know it.”

She also said, “I’m angry, and I will go there,” referring to her desire to sue her father for conservatorship abuse. 

For the time being, Spears has requested the conservator of her person, Jodi Montgomery, remain on her case. 

Shortly after the hearing, the lawyer Spears hired, Mathew Rosengart, called for Jamie Spears to voluntarily step down from his daughter’s conservatorship. “This is not working. What is supposed to be at the heart of this has been lost,” he said. “There is a real question as to why Mr. Spears does not voluntarily step down today…. Is he here for financial reasons? Does anybody really believe that Mr. Spears’s involvement is in the best interest of his daughter?” Rosengart also confirmed his firm would be investigating the origins of Spears’s conservatorship, which was put into effect in 2008. He said, “A conservatorship was probably not necessary.”

Jamie’s lawyer, Vivian Thoreen, said the elder Spears would not resign. 

Britney officially filed to remove her father from her conservatorship.

Per the New York Times, Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, filed the petition on Monday, July 26. He cited that if “Ms. Spears has sufficient capacity to choose her own legal counsel, she likewise has sufficient capacity to make this nomination.” She’s asking for a certified public accountant in California, Jason Rubin, to be named conservator of her estate.

Alex Rodriguez Was in St. Tropez at the Same Time as Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

It must be awkward enough watching your ex post makeout pics with their new bae, but Alex Rodriguez had to do it while vacationing in the same exact town.

On July 24, Jennifer Lopez celebrated her 52nd birthday by posting makeout pics with Ben Affleck, recreating that steamy “Jenny from the Block” yacht scene, and basically having the time of her life. But she wasn’t the only one celebrating a birthday in St. Tropez.

According to Page Six, A-Rod was also on a yacht off the shores of the French coastal town where he was also celebrating his upcoming 46th birthday, which lands on July 27. “He’s with family and friends and people he works with,” a source previously told People. “He’s doing great and celebrating his birthday and Minnesota Timberwolves sale.”

While Lopez practically broke the internet on July 24 when she went Instagram official with Affleck, Rodriguez had a boat post of his own to share that same day:

A few days earlier, he posted a photo from the yacht to kick off his “#EuroTrip.”

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez officially called off their engagement in April. “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” they told Today in a statement. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.” 

Despite the copacetic statement, Rodriguez reportedly hoped to “get her back,” while Lopez quickly moved on with Affleck, her ex-fiancé from the early 2000s. Ever since then it’s been all about Bennifer. According to a source who recently spoke to People, the couple is “madly in love” and consider themselves “the loves of each other’s lives.”

A separate source told the publication, “Even though their split many years ago was devastating for Jennifer, she has never had a bad word to say about Ben. She believes that it just wasn’t meant to be then and feels like they’ve been given a second chance.”

Ahead Of Black Adam, 5 Things To Know About DC Comics’ Intergang

Intergang Follows Their Own Religion Dominated By Crime

For the Intergang, crime is not just an occupation, but a way of life. Outside of their Apokolips-sourced equipment, the group’s most valuable tool is a book caed the Crime Bible, which is actually not so different from the Christian Bible in terms of its content, but reinterprets all of its stories and teachings as a celebration of sin in lieu of condemning it. The book is the official text of the Religion of Crime – otherwise known as the “Dark Faith” – and was first introduced in 2006 during The New 52 era.

I mentioned earlier that Batwoman and Renee “The Question” Montoya once took on the Intergang, but I left out that the reason for their conflict involved the Crime Bible, which the syndicate’s then leader Bruno Mannaheim tried to use to create a cult of criminal minions in Gotham City. The investigation even leads Batwoman and The Question to cross paths with Black Adam and Isis (a.k.a. Adrianna Tomaz), who also have their own personal vendetta against the Dark Faith.

Jennifer Lopez Was Photographed Wearing a ‘BEN’ Necklace, Because Of Course

In news that should surprise no one at this point, Jennifer Lopez was photographed in Monaco, France on Monday, July 26 wearing a “BEN” necklace. People has photos. 

Presumably, that’s “BEN” for Ben Affleck, who recently reunited with Lopez after they called off their engagement in 2004. It’s only been the talk of the internet for months. We have a full timeline of their relationship, which truly does feel like a movie, here. 

Lopez turned 52 on July 24, and it seems she used the occasion to go public with her Affleck romance. She posted a photo to her Instagram grid of them kissing—it’s cheekily the last snap in a four-photo carousel. They also recreated that steamy yacht scene from the pop icon’s “Jenny From the Block” video. You know the one: It’s where Affleck is rubbing Lopez’s bikini bottom-clad bum. Watch the video, below, in case you forgot: 

But yeah: The couple remade that scene IRL.TMZ has photos of that. 

It seems Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are letting pictures do the talking on their relationship—for now. Neither of them has said anything about the romance. However, “sources” and “insiders” have been spilling for months now. One insider told People they are “the loves of each other’s lives” and “madly in love.” And a source told E! Online, “She wants to give it a shot with Ben. They never really had closure and she has always wondered what could have been. The timing was never right and they were in different places until now.”

Before their reunion, Affleck sung Lopez’s praises in a story for InStyle. “She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success,” he said. “And I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”

The credit and also, it appears, the love. 

The Rock Shares Feelings And ‘Gratitude’ For The Fans (As Well As Cool Footage) From The Jungle Cruise Premiere

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has a lot to celebrate these days. The actor recently wrapped production on Warner Bros. and DC’s Black Adam and, now, he’s enjoying the long-awaited release of Disney’s Jungle Cruise. The movie, which The Rock headlines alongside Emily Blunt, is set to arrive later this week, and the excitement for the film seems to be building. The film also just had its world premiere and, to mark the occasion, Johnson offered fans some words of “gratitude” and some cool footage from the event.

Wait, JLo, Ben Affleck And A-Rod Are All On Yachts In The Same Location For Birthday Celebrations?

Yesterday, when JLo shared some brand spankin’ new looks at her 52-year-old self in a bikini for her own birthday, I could not help but notice that she, like her ex A-Rod, chose to get on a yacht to celebrate her birthday. That in itself seemed like a coincidence worth talking out. While the two are not the same age, their birthdays do fall within a week of one another, which means they’ve both been caught out and about taking pics on a yacht at the same time. Here’s one of JLo’s now viral birthday posts for her birthday, which falls on July 24th.
