Britney Spears' Court-Appointed Lawyer Resigns

A lawyer appointed to Britney Spears by a court for her conservatorship has quit after 13 years.

Britney spoke out about the things her father, Jamie Spears, has allegedly subjected her to -- now everybody is jumping ship. Samuel Ingram's resignation comes the same week Britney's longtime manager resigned after announcing she is retiring from music.

"It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus," Rudolph wrote, according to Deadline. 

"Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire. As you know, I have never been part of the conservatorship nor its operations, so I am not privy to many of these details. I was originally hired at Britney's request to help manage and assist with her career. And as her manager, I believe it is in Britney's best interest for me to resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed. Please accept this letter as my formal resignation. I will always be incredibly proud of what we accomplished over our 25 years together. I wish Britney all the health and happiness in the world, and I'll be there for her if she ever needs me again, just as I always have been."
