The Britney Spears guardianship saga continued with a new hearing on Wednesday.
At the hearing, a judge ruled that Spears would be allowed to hire his own lawyer for the case after asking the court for leave to do so, according to the New York Times.
“I’m here to get rid of my dad and accuse him of abuse of guardianship,” Spears told her father Jamie Spears in court, according to NBC News. According to the outlet, the singer went on to say that she wanted Jamie investigated and that “this guardianship allowed my father to ruin my life.”
The move comes three weeks after Spears’ explosive testimony in which she deemed the guardianship “abusive” and criticized her father Jamie for exercising control over her and taking money from her.
