Britney Spears lawyer Sam Ingham likens her psychological state to a coma affected person

Britney Spears lawyer Sam Ingham likens her mental state to a coma patient

In the ongoing lawsuit over the Britney Spears Conservatory litigation, Britney's own attorney, Sam Ingham, has compared her state of mind to that of a comatose patient.

TMZ reports that Mr. Ingham says she does not have the mental clarity to sign a legal document and, while she is not physically in a coma, she does not have the mental clarity to sign legally binding documents.

He went on to explain how comatose patients often have attorneys sign on their behalf, with Britney requiring exactly the same treatment.

The pop star is currently under the legal supervision of her father, Jamie Spears. It means that he is in control of their personal and financial life.

However, the Toxic singer is struggling to remove her father from this conservatory.

On Wednesday, Mr Ingham alleged during a video conference trial that Britney would no longer perform despite her father insisting that she perform and revive her career.

The judge in the trial wanted to hear this from Britney's mouth, but Mr. Ingham claimed that her state of mind was not healthy enough to make legal representations.

Father Jamie Spears argued that it should be Britney herself who shows up for the hearings, which Britney's attorney disagreed with.

"I am the only source of information in public pleadings about what my client wants," he told the court.

Jamie's attorney then argued that anything Mr Ingham claimed could in fact be considered hearsay as it was not Britney who brought the news.

"Perhaps it is best if Ms. Spears shows up so we can all know what she's thinking," she asked.

But it wasn't something that got past Mr. Ingham claiming that when Britney has to be under supervision, she was already lacking the mental faculties.

"It is clear that the attorney has a bigger agenda here," Ingham told the judge. "From my point of view, it goes without saying that conservatives cannot make verified statements because they lack the legal capacity to do so."

While Britney tries to remove her father as her only restorer, she wants to appoint a third-party company, the Bessemer Trust Company, to take control of her finances instead.

"Britney is strongly against her father continuing to be the sole custodian of her estate," a court document said. "She strongly prefers to hire a qualified trustee for this role."
