In the wake of another hearing on
Britney Spears' affairs, there's another behind-the-scenes shake-up in the works. At a Thursday hearing, the presiding commish granted Spears' conservators - her father, Jamie, and lawyer Andrew Wallet - the right to fire her manager (the real one), Howard Grossman.
Commissioner Reva Goetz required that Grossman turn over "all documents, records and assets relating to Britney Spears" to the conservators. And while Grossman has not yet officially been fired, he is reportedly close with Sam Lutfi, the Britney associate who has been at odds with the Spears family.
In the meantime, Britney's lawyers, Trope and Trope, have filed papers asking to be removed as her counsel. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for March 10. With all of this turnover, it looks like Britney might really be on her way to a clean slate, at least on the managerial front. What's your take? Will the shake-up yield results? - Anna Dimond
