Despite her most recent request to have her father removed as her conservator being denied, it looks like things may finally be looking up for Britney Spears.

Could the end of her 13-year conservatorship finally be in sight?

Quite a lot has happened since her emotional court testimony a few weeks ago – two of the biggest things being that her court-appointed lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham III, as well as her long-time manager Larry Rudolph, have both resigned.

And that, according to sources, has made the 39-year-old star very “hopeful” about her future…

“She’s finally feeling hopeful about the future,” an insider told E! News.

“She thinks people are resigning because they know she is speaking the truth. She is relieved her attorney resigned and hopes that if she can pick her own lawyer, it means the judge is leaning towards terminating the conservatorship.

“She’s trying to be patient and see what happens. She is happy that things are starting to happen, and that the truth has finally come out.”

Samuel D. Ingham III has been working with Britney Spears since the start of her conservatorship in 2008. And Larry Rudolph has been managing the singer’s career for 25 years, although he made it very clear that he and Britney haven’t been in contact for more than two and a half years….

“It has been over two and a half years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus,” he reportedly wrote, in a letter to Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, and co-conservator Jodi Montgomery.

“Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.

“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.”

Although Britney’s attorney and manager have both resigned, we aren’t expecting her co-conservator, Jodi Montgomery, to step down…

According to court documents obtained by E! News which were dated July 6 2021, Jodi Montgomery said she will continue to handle Britney’s medical records and personal affairs, and has no intention to stop any time soon.

Do you think these resignations are a step in the right direction?

Do you think Britney is right to start feeling optimistic about her future?
