britney spears earns conservatorship win as petition is granted to expand her legal team

Her father has been at the helm of a court-ordered conservatorship for 12 years.

And Britney Spears earned a small victory in the courtroom this week as a petition was granted for the popstar to ‘expand her legal team’ in fighting for her freedom.

The 38-year-old singer was not in attendance for the hearing but Jamie, her mother Lynne and her attorney Samuel Ingham were present, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Jamie filed paperwork last week contending the petition as unnecessary spending and that it would cost Spears too much money.

‘Clearly, James’ objectives are either to filibuster the appointment of a corporate fiduciary indefinitely or to dominate the entire process himself, including the selection of the fiduciary,’ Ingham contended last week.

‘The only way to assure that Britney’s voice is heard will be for her to have qualified litigation counsel available in order to place her on a level playing field with James.’ 

Britney’s legal team insists her wants and needs are different than Jamie’s ‘vision of a future in which she resumes performing and leaves the management of her estate completely to him as she did in the past.’

During a hearing last week, Jamie’s lawyer, Lauriann Wright, questioned if Britney could be present for the proceedings instead of spoken for through Ingham.

‘Perhaps it would be best for Ms. Spears to appear so we all know what she’s thinking,’ Wright said. ‘We are not trying to force Ms. Spears into court either.’ 

Ingham responded that Britney’s current mental state is that of a patient in a coma. He clarified that while she is not literally in a coma, she is not able at this time to consent to a legal arrangement. 

Britney objected to her father’s filing last month where he requested to seal court proceedings, as she wants her fans informed of what’s going on behind closed doors.

‘Britney strongly believes it is consistent not only with her personal best interests but also with good public policy generally that the decision to appoint a new conservator of her estate be made in as open and transparent a manner as possible,’ the documents said. ‘The sealing motion is supposedly being brought by her father to ‘protect’ Britney’s interests, but she is adamantly opposed to it.’

Jamie has been her conservator since 2008 and stepped down from his role in September 2019 due to his health, with temporary conservatorship handed over to her care manager Jodi Montgomery, but he resumed his duties in January 2020. 

In 2007, Britney famously shaved her head at a salon in Tarzana, California, which many believe to be just the beginning of a tragic spiral where she lost custody of her children.

She was placed under a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold in 2008 after being committed to the psychiatric ward at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, which spawned the need for a conservatorship by her father.

candice warner appears to have replaced roxy jacenko with ali oetjen as her new best friend

She recently fell out with former friend Roxy Jacenko after being pitted against each other on Channel Seven’s SAS Australia. 

And it seems Candice Warner, 35, has already found a suitable candidate to replace Roxy as her best friend – fellow SAS Australia recruit Ali Oetjen, 34.

Candice alluded to her new-found bond with the Bachelorette star on Tuesday by uploading two Instagram photos of the pair competing on SAS Australia together.

The women were pictured carrying a tyre through the mud together during Monday night’s season premiere. 

A second photo saw the mother-of-three hiking up a treacherous-looking cliff with Ali by her side. 

Ali promptly commented on the post, writing: ‘Soul sister’ alongside two queen emojis.

‘Always!!’ Candice replied, adding two love-heart emojis.   

Candice and Ali’s public display of camaraderie came as Roxy officially ended her friendship with Candice on Tuesday’s Kyle And Jackie O Show. 

The 40-year-old PR guru explained that she no longer considers Candice a friend after the women were pitted against each other in a physical fight during Monday’s season premiere of SAS Australia.

‘You know what? Is [Candice] really my friend anymore? No,’ Roxy raged.

‘You know why I never hit back? She’s my mate and I’m not going to smack [her] in the face for other people’s entertainment,’ she added. 

‘You wouldn’t continue punching when the person – me – turns their back and continue punching them in the back of the head. In boxing, that’s totally not allowed. The reality is, I can’t punch my then-friend in the face for people’s entertainment.’

It's over: 'You know what? Is [Candice] really my friend anymore? No,' Roxy told The Kyle And Jackie O Show

‘You look back and go, “F**k, I should have whacked her one,” but you know what? I’m bigger than that and I’ve got respect for other people,’ she continued.

Roxy said she reached out to Candice after filming the show in the NSW Snowy Mountains in August and tried to repair their broken friendship.

But instead of accepting the olive branch, Roxy claimed that Candice simply ‘sacked her’ as her manager instead.  

‘No, she sacked me instead,’ Roxy laughed. ‘People will always let you down. I believe after what I did for Candice that it was a real smack in the face, pardon the pun.’ 

Friendship over: 'I believe after what I did for Candice that it was a real smack in the face, pardon the pun', Roxy said

Sunrise: The Cash Cow is unmasked on live TV in embarrassing gaffe

sunrise the cash cow is unmasked on live tv in embarrassing gaffe

The hosts of Channel Seven’s Sunrise were left in stitches on Thursday after the Cash Cow’s head fell off during a hilarious live TV gaffe.

The mascot pops up during Sunrise’s money giveaways, but the identity of the person behind the novelty outfit is a closely guarded industry secret.

But all that changed when the Cash Cow’s energetic dance routine caused the head of the costume to topple off, revealing the young male staffer underneath.

'Sorry, kiddies!': The hosts of Sunrise were left in stitches on Thursday after the Cash Cow's head fell off during a hilarious live TV gaffe. Pictured: Sam Armytage and David Koch

‘How would you like to win some cash?’ asked Samantha Armytage at 7:42am as the show cut to the Cash Cow dancing outside Brekky Central in Sydney’s Martin Place.

‘The Cash Cow has $20,000 to give away for our lucky winner,’ she added.

The mascot pretended to be a ski jumper using two umbrellas as poles, and as he threw his head back to simulate a leap off the ramp, his head flew into the air.

The man wearing the costume immediately dropped the umbrellas and covered his face with his hands, then rushed off camera.

Back in the studio, Samantha and her colleagues burst into fits of laughter as co-host David Koch yelled out: ‘Sorry, kiddies! Oh, no.’

‘Something terrible’s happened,’ said sports reporter Mark Beretta.

‘You’re terrible, Muriel. That’s funny,’ added newsreader Natalie Barr in between fits of giggles.

Samantha, 44, reassured viewers that the Cash Cow was ‘alright’ and ‘okay’ as the mascot fell to its knees outside and begged for forgiveness.

The clumsy cow then rolled around on the pavement in distress.

Dusty and distracted? It's not the first time Sunrise has suffered a live TV gaffe, as weatherman Sam Mac was accused by his colleagues live on air earlier this month of being 'hungover'

On October 5, Samantha asked Sam, 38, if he was ‘alright’ while broadcasting live from Adelaide Zoo, adding: ‘We’re a bit worried about you this morning.’

David, 64, agreed with his colleague and said that Sam looked a bit ‘dusty’.

‘No! I was in bed by eight o’clock,’ replied Sam. ‘You can check the CCTV footage from the hotel. I had a very quiet night.’

But the hosts wouldn’t let it go, and Samantha went on to say: ‘You jut seemed a little bit vague and distracted.’

‘That’s how I always am! You’ve seen the show,’ argued Sam, who seemed genuinely surprised by the suggestion.

Sam later clarified on Instagram that he wasn’t hungover at the time.

Last month Naya Rivera’s sister Nickayla and ex Ryan Dorsey revealed that they had moved in together in order to help raise her five-year-old son Josey.

And the 26-year-old sister of the Glee star and 37-year-old actor were seen grabbing burgers at iconic California burger joint, In-N-Out, in Santa Clarita over the weekend.

The two have found solace in a friendship together after the untimely passing of Nickayla’s sister and Ryan’s ex wife, Naya Rivera, in July.

No doubt they have a bond as they shared a laugh together while ordering at the drive thru.

The two were also seen heading to the gym together on Monday before grabbing tacos together for lunch. 

Last month Dorsey posted an emotional video on Instagram on Tuesday addressing claims made about his relationship with Nickayla.

 The actor stated that his late ex-wife’s sister moved in with him at the request of his son Josey, 5, ‘because she’s now the closest thing he has to a mom’. 

Ryan revealed that he hasn’t been following either social media since former Glee star Naya accidentally drowned in July while boating on a lake with her young son. 

He said: ‘I usually don’t read comments on my own stuff because I know how there can be 50 good things said and five negative ones. 

‘Somehow as humans we get those five negative ones stuck in our heads wondering how people could say certain things.’

Sweet: Ryan recently returned to Instagram for the first time since Naya's death as he revealed their son Josey, 5, had gotten a fresh buzz cut

He said: ‘It was brought to my attention that people have a lot to say and have opinions on a family’s tragic situation.

‘99% of strangers that don’t even know this family. And I’ll be honest, I probably read about 10 and that was enough to know that is why I don’t read comments.

‘There’s people making judgments, making assumptions and sending terrible messages wishing death upon strangers that they truly know next to zero about.

It’s really insane but I’ll just say a couple of things about that one.

It’s truly sad that this is the world we live in where people were raised to think it’s OK to spew hatred in general, especially to make statements about a family who are dealing with a tragedy that I hope is so unimaginable that neither you or anyone that is close to you ever has to go through.’ 

Ryan later confirmed in the video that Nickayla moved in at the request of his son.

‘[Josey] asks me if Titi can live with us. ”I want Titi to live with us forever,” because she’s now the closest thing he has to a mom. You’re going to need all the help you can get as a single parent trying to build your career and navigate this disaster with your child,’ Ryan said.

Ryan said that he was determined to give Josey the family that he asked for even though ‘it’s temporary and it’s not forever’.

‘It’s a temporary situation. After all that he’s had to go through how could you deny him that? Because of what? What some strangers might think or say,’ he added.

He praised model Nickayla and her family for supporting him after the tragedy.

‘To have a young woman who is his blood, his Titi, who is willing to put her life on hold and sacrifice things, uproot her situation for the betterment of your child,’ Ryan said.

The Ray Donovan actor said Nickayla has been helping him cope with his grief.

‘So when you put your child to bed you don’t always have to be alone with your thoughts and you don’t have to be sad any day or night wondering when does it get better. At least you have someone there with you to talk to or just sit in silence and be sad with. You don’t have to deal with being completely alone,’ he said.  

He branded the speculation that they were in a relationship as ‘absurd’.

‘S*** man, I wish I was worried about a relationship right now. Not thinking about this and living with this every day,’ Ryan said. 

Nickayla addressed the speculation earlier that week on Instagram as she posted, ‘What matters most I’ve learned, is to show compassion, not to judge others, & never take a moment of life for granted. I hope you all do the same’.

Ryan and Naya got married on his birthday in July 2014 in Mexico and welcomed Josey on September 17, 2015. She filed for divorce for a second time in December 2017 and it was finalized in June 2018.

Naya, who was age 33 at the time of her death, starred on Glee as lesbian cheerleader Santana Lopez from 2009 to 2015.  

Her family released a statement in the wake of authorities recovering her body back in July.

They wrote: ‘We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and prayers for Naya, Josey and our family over the past week. 

‘While we grieve the loss of our beautiful legend, we are blessed to honor her everlasting legacy and magnetic spirit. Naya was an amazing talent, but was an even greater person, mother, daughter and sister.

‘Thank you to the men and women of the Ventura, Tulare, and San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Departments for your commitment and unwavering effort to find Naya.

‘We extend endless gratitude and ovation to the heroine who found her. Thank you to her friends, colleagues, and fans for your continuous support. 

Authorities with Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office said Rivera had died due to accidental drowning.

‘The circumstances and visual characteristics all indicated that the body was that of Naya Rivera and the identity has been confirmed by dental comparison,’ a report states. ‘The autopsy findings are consistent with a drowning and the condition of the body is consistent with the time that she was submerged.

‘No traumatic injuries or disease processes were identified at autopsy.

‘There is no indication from the investigation or examination that drugs or alcohol played a role in the decedent’s death, but specimens will be submitted for toxicology testing,’ it added. 

The date of pronouncement was listed as Monday, July 13.  

The Glee star’s body was recovered from the northeast portion of Lake Piru, located 50 miles north of Los Angeles, on Monday after she went missing last week. 

Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said there was nothing to indicate any foul play took place or that she died by suicide.
