The lawyer has been the singer’s representative for 13 years of her tutelage, but is said to be “extremely upset” by her comments in court a few weeks ago, in which she made explosive statements.
TMZ reported that after Britney opened up about her disappointment with the way Sam handled her case, among other allegations regarding her father when she appeared in court via video.
The attorney is believed to have filed for removal from his court-appointed post, in which he was Britney’s attorney.
The US media site reported that Sam has denied Britney’s claims that she was not told about all of the options surrounding her guardianship and was not told how she might end it.
TMZ said Sam had claimed otherwise and Britney was aware of all the details.
It has been alleged by insiders in the case that Britney has been told what needs to be done to end her father Jamie Spears’ tutelage.
The insider claimed it was Britney who asked for this to continue, contrary to what she said in public.
Sam’s resignation follows Larry Rudolph’s decision to step down as manager of the singer.
He has been a long-term manager of the singer, with Deadline reporting that he told co-curators Britney, Jamie Spears and Jodi Montgomery – who was appointed by the court, in a letter to the couple on Monday.
Larry wrote: “It has been over two and a half years since Britney and I last communicated, when she informed me that she wanted to take an indefinite break from work.
“Earlier today, I learned that Britney has expressed her intention to officially retire.
“As a manager, I think it’s in Britney’s best interests that I resign from her team as my professional services are no longer needed. “
