The father of the pop star James Spears has been responsible for the finances and private life of her 39-year-old daughter for 13 years. The guardianship order was issued after the singer’s 2007 mental collapse.

Previously, the singer had been represented by a court-appointed lawyer Samuel Ingham. When the guardianship order was issued in 2008, the judge ruled that the singer could not choose his own lawyer.
Judge Brenda Penny said later Monday that she would make a decision on her father’s request in late September. The hearing is scheduled for 29 September.
Rosengart, who represented the star for only about two weeks, promised his team to submit a request to remove James Spears from his custody responsibility as soon as possible. He has also urged the singer’s father to relinquish custody voluntarily.
James Spears has been asked to be removed from his guardianship in the past. However, the judge rejected the previous request made last year.
Both Spears himself and his numerous fans and several public figures have called for an end to the guardianship arrangement.
