  1. But it's all about "the brand." He'd rather restrict her basic human rights than risk her creating another "Chaotic" or risk her posting an honest letter to Instagram.
  2. It just struck me why he continues to hold on so tight. I mean...I knew it...But your post sums it up so perfectly.
  3. The "Order to Show Cause" hearing occurs annually. This booking always happens almost a year in advance and has absolutely nothing to do with "the movement." For those of you who aren't familiar with the legal system...The existence of "the movement" does not directly impact what occurs in the courts. "The movement" can assist with probate reform, and with bringing the attention of journalists and the general public to the case, but it is not likely to directly affect what plays out in the courtroom...This is going to unfold on its own time, at a pace that only the interested parties can determine.

  5. This is how the legal system works. Relax. Kick back. Enjoy the ride.
  6. Why are you such a **** to long-time members here? Just because you're a so-called "lawyer" and hold a different opinion doesn't mean you need to talk down to others that don't hold the same opinion as you.
  7. It's not that Britney was "out of control," but was making increasingly poor decisions that were having a detrimental impact on her life. She may have been teaching dance classes to kids six days after being released from the second 5150, but she bailed on a court hearing for her own children just days before that same 5150. Alli wasn't by Britney's side when she was "on top"...For the most part, Alli entered her life when she was already nearing rock bottom....Compare that to Brian, who knew Britney when she was "on top" and in complete control. Alli was forced out of Britney's life, so she's going to view things from a certain perspective...She's going to feel a certain way about the conservatorship...Which makes sense... But what if the conservatorship didn't mean all of these people (Alli, Brian, Wade, Andre, etc.) were cut off from her? What if Jamie had allowed them all to stay in contact as part of Britney's own rehabilitation? The conservatorship truly didn't have to play out the way it did...Had the laws been different, and with the correct people at the helm (e.g. Lynne or Fe) it could have been a time of healing for her...and then it would have been over and done with, and we wouldn't even be discussing it in 2021.
  8. I haven't had a chance to catch up on the Twitter convos posted in this thread... But here's something to think about... If LFB were actually hired by Ingham (or Loeb & Loeb or even Lynne's lawyer — by that particular faction of the parties involved)...They're doing this to counter the narrative being put forth by Jamie's side. So... Apart from the fact that they appear to be "pro-conservatorship," as some have called them...What is their strategy? If LFB were the ones to leak the POM contract...Can we assume then that the contract came directly from Ingham? If so, what was Ingham trying to communicate by leaking that particular document?
  9. Oh, believe me, I've been called many things on this forum..."Snake in the grass" is my favourite so far. I tend to hold similar opinions to LFB, but I develop them straight from reading the court documents — not from reading other people's opinions on Twitter. I conduct legal research for a living, and I've worked for both social justice law firms and organizations like Amnesty International...so frankly, people can call me whatever they like. No skin off my nuts.
  10. What better way to prove to the court that she doesn't need a conservatorship...than to prove to the court she doesn't need a conservatorship? I'm all for fans being advocates for probate reform, and for bringing attention to her story...but her actual court fight is personal, and should remain her own.
  11. My question is... Why is it a bad thing that Ingham may have pro-Ingham advocates on social media who leak documents that he's giving them? He's leaking documents. Documents that are meant to counter Team CON's narrative. Why is that a bad thing?
  12. There was a lot going on during that period of time. ... Dec. 31, 2017 - The final show of the "Britney: Piece of Me" residency occurs at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, closing out a five-year run. May 22, 2018 - Jamie Lynn Spears is accepted as sole Trustee of the SJB Revocable Trust by the probate court. May 22, 2018 - Kevin Federline files documents with the family court asking for a forensic accounting; Jamie Spears has refused to reveal Britney's financials. May 23, 2018 - Mark Vincent Kaplan releases a statement to the media, announcing that Kevin and Britney's father are battling over an increase to his monthly custody payments. June 10, 2018 - For the first time since 2007, the monthly child support payments to Kevin Federline are increased from $20,000 to an unknown amount. June 10, 2018 - Co-Conservator Andrew Wallet asks the probate court for a substantial raise. He is approved, and begins receiving $426,000 per year for his work. July 6, 2018 - The SJB Revocable Trust undergoes its first amendment, allowing the "BJS Kids & Family Trust" to be the recipient of all of Britney's assets upon her death. July 12, 2018 - The first show of the Piece of Me: Exclusive Limited Tour occurs at an MGM Resort in Maryland. Aug. 3, 2018 - During an ex parte hearing in family court, Britney's private visitation deal with Kevin is modified from 50/50 to 70/30. It is not formalized by the probate court until a year later. Aug. 26, 2018 - Britney ejects a fan from a meet and greet at a London POM tour date after the fan lightly touches the back of her sweater. Aug. 28, 2018 - Britney is accused of being uncommunicative and disrespectful to fans at a Paris date of the POM tour. Both James Spears and Lou Taylor are spotted in Paris. Sept. 1, 2018 - The final regular show of the Piece of Me: Exclusive Limited Tour occurs in Blackpool, England. Oct. 19, 2018 - Britney announces the Domination residency in Las Vegas, but leaves the scene before speaking to the crowd.
  13. Everyone's favourite insider, Billy B., claims that Cassie only posts some of Britney's content...As in, she gives them more but they refuse to post it. And that makes perfect sense! She's probably been trying to communicate with her fans via her social media since 2009. Also... Why did it never occur to me that it was Britney herself who made the decision to shut down Domination — not Jamie?! He likely punished her by sticking her in the mental health facility...Yet all along we've been told by whoever left the voicemail for Britney's Gram that Jamie shut down Domination because she refused to take her meds. (It's six of one, a half dozen of the other...but still.)
  14. I wouldn't be shocked in the least. LFB posts things that are anti-Jamie, yet still slightly pro-conservatorship (very similar to my own views — I'm not "pro-conservatorship," but just pro- allowing Britney to chart her own course, because what better way to prove to the court that she doesn't need the conservatorship than to allow her to fight her father on her own terms?) My guess is it's Lynne's lawyer or someone at Loeb & Loeb...for both LFB and Billy B. Don't think for a second that private investigators aren't involved in this, either...There are millions at stake, and this is going to get dirty.
  15. Wrong. Dementia can be induced by drug abuse...She was being fed crushed anti-psychotic meds by Sam Lutfi in the week before her second 5150, on top of the Adderall she admitted to taking. Drug-induced dementia can wear off. I type this having just watched my mother die of Alzheimer's over Christmas...At one time she was taking the same anti-psychotics that Britney was prescribed.
  16. Agreed! It was a single box that was checked on a single form when they applied for the temporary conservatorship in February 2009. Since October 2009, when the conservatorship was made permanent, the excuse that Team CON has used has been "susceptible to undue influence." They rode that excuse hard through TMZ. They themselves have never once used "dementia" as an excuse to justify the conservatorship. I believe dementia keeps on being brought up because so many people are joining "the movement" who aren't long-time fans of Britney, and haven't been following the story since the beginning. That being said...The dementia claims sound ludicrous now that they've being covered in the UK media, and make Team CON look even worse.
  17. He said she stopped contacting him and everything went silent...It was around the time that it became known that he'd participated in the BBC doc. However...He keeps calling out Cassie over and over, and drawing attention to the fact that Britney's been sending hidden messages. Example: Britney's video about making the sandwich...As Billy B. points out, Cassie made a mistake when she posted it, because it shows Britney remembers the ingredients for a sandwich she ate 15 years ago, and therefore can't have dementia. Regardless of whether he's actually been in contact with Britney or not, his posts are gold and I think "the movement" should be embracing it since it greatly helps their cause. No matter what anyone here thinks about him, he's worked with all of the biggest names in the business, and created some of pop's most memorable looks (e.g. he's consistently worked with Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, etc. for years.)
  18. I'll be the first to admit when I'm proven wrong... But I totally think Billy B. is right...I think he's been given the green light by Lynne's side to go at Team CON and GO HARD. He's absolutely living this up on Instagram right now, and IMO, he's killing it! Regardless of whether he's talking to Britney or not (he says he's been cut off now for a couple of weeks) he's the worst thing to happen to Team CON in a long time, in terms of how they're portrayed in the media.
  19. It's like what Bryan said in that interview he did back in July. They specifically developed businesses that would run themselves so that the entire family didn't have to focus on touring to keep the millions rolling in. Example...Her perfume empire.
