Britney Spears’ attorney plans to file a petition to request the court’s consideration to move Jodi Montgomery from temporary conservator of the person to a conservator, NBC News reports.

In a brief hearing Wednesday, Samuel D. Ingham III told the court he intended to file a petition to bring Montgomery on as a permanent conservator to his client's case. Montgomery was temporarily in charge of Spears' estate after her father, Jamie Spears, took a break for personal health reasons.

Jamie Spears has been his daughter’s conservator since 2008 and was briefly her sole conservator in 2019 after the resignation of his former co-conservator, Andrew Wallet. Later that same year, Jamie Spears took a break from controlling her estate due to his health and Montgomery stepped in as a temporary conservator of the person.

The pending petition from Ingham does not appear intended to remove Jamie Spears from his daughter's case, based on the short statement he made in court on Wednesday. Ingham declined to comment to NBC News on Wednesday.

Britney Spears is speaking out. The pop star took to Instagram to share a message with fans, sharing a video of her performing “Toxic” onstage and writing in part, “I’ll always love being on stage …. But I am taking the time to learn and be a normal person ….. I love simply enjoying the basics of every day life !!!! Each person has their story and their take on other people’s stories !!!! We all have so many different beautiful lives."
