In a move that is sure to rile up the #FreeBritney people, Britney Spears’s lawyers are requesting that her father, Jamie Spears, no longer have sole conservatorship over her estate and her person.

TMZ reports that Spears—who has been having kind of a strange time in quarantine—wants her dad to be permanently replaced by Jodi Montgomery, who temporarily took over as conservator of Spears’s person while Jamie Spears went through some reported health issues. Spears would also like her dad to no longer exclusively handle her business affairs, with lawyers requesting a “qualified corporate fiduciary” be assigned to her estate.

In the last year or so, both Spears’s wellbeing and business affairs have sparked some worrisome headlines, as well as an entire movement of conspiracy theorists dedicated to having Jamie Spears removed as his daughter’s conservator. Hard to know what’s going to happen next, but I genuinely hope she’s OK. [TMZ]

At the opening night of the Democratic National Convention on Monday, Michelle Obama wore a vote necklace that got some attention. So much attention, in fact, that the brand who makes it says they’re selling out.

The New York Post reports:

Chari Cuthbert, who owns the Los Angeles boutique ByChari, said the brand saw “a significant uptick in sales” in just the hour after the former first lady debuted the $430 gold chain, the Daily Beast reported.

“My finance guy just texted me a bunch of exclamation points, so I assume that’s a good thing,” Cuthbert said. “He said, I’m so happy for you, this is everything you’ve worked for.”

A friend of mine’s son was a dancer in her Vegas show. She is honestly happy and fine and people need to just let her live. I will never understand why anyone - after knowing what she went through- want to believe Britney lives anything but a healthy life. With everything she has been through, the media obsession over this can not be healthy for her.

Conservatorship is tricky and complicated and involves a lot. Her dad had health problems, which is why it got temporarily transferred to this woman. I’m assuming that had a time limit in which they would have to either keep it the way it is, or transfer it back. Maybe he still has problems, maybe it caused them to look at a bigger picture. But whatever it is, the whole #freebritney thing is complete BS and is making issues where there is no issues.
