Britney Spears' lawyer has vowed to move "aggressively" to end her dad Jamie Spears' role in her conservatorship.

The Toxic hit singer, 39, won the right to choose her own attorney last week, after accusing her dad of "conservatorship abuse".

And the singer's new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, has already got to work on her case.

Speaking outside of the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles, California on Monday 19 July, Mathew said: "My firm and I are moving aggressively and expeditiously to file a petition to remove Jamie Spears unless he resigns first."

He also thanked Britney "for her courage and strength" as well as her fans for their "overwhelming support" as he was met with cheers from a group from the #FreeBritney movement.

Britney's new lawyer Mathew had attended a hearing where Britney's temporary conservator for her personal affairs, Jodi Montgomery, asked Judge Brenda Penny to charge to conservatorship for extra security.

Jodi claimed she's had to put further security measures in place after receiving several death threats. The security charges are around $1,800 (£13,000) per day.

The request was adjourned until a later hearing on Monday 26 July.

Britney, who recently lashed out at those "closest" who "ignored her", recently said her dad "should be in jail" over her conservatorship.

Sharing a heartfelt statement last month Britney revealed: "Anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management … they should be in jail".

She added to Judge Brenda Penny: "I am not happy, I can’t sleep. I’m so angry, it’s insane. And I’m depressed."

Britney also alleged her father won't take her off birth control so she can have more children. She also claimed that Jamie had intimidated her into performing a 31 date tour of Europe and North America in 2018.

Hit Me Baby One More Time singer Britney's father Jamie later spoke via a statement at the testimony, which said: "He is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain.

"Mr Spears loves his daughter very much," the short statement concluded.

Britney had also stated that she wanted private wealth management firm The Bessemer Trust as the sole conservators, ousting Jamie from his role.

But, a court filing showed Judge Brenda Penny refused the singer's request, as it showed Jamie and The Bessemer Trust as co-conservators.

According to The Guardian, the document stated: "The conservatee's request to suspend James P Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company Of California, NA as sole conservator of estate is denied without prejudice."
