Britney Spears' lawyer argues that giving her father more guardianship power would be 'highly damaging'

 Britney Spears' attorney has argued that giving her father Jamie more guardianship power would be "highly damaging" to the singer.

The Toxic star is currently in a legal battle against her father to have him permanently removed from her guardianship, after he took control of her life following her public collapse in 2008.

In the latest development of the case, Britney's attorney Samuel Ingham has stated that "it would be very damaging to Britney's interests" to give Jamie more control over her estate.

The comment comes after Jamie submitted a proposed order to the court, in which he argued that he had lost some of her powers since he and the Bessemer Trust became co-curators of Britney's estate in November.

But Ingham argued that if Jamie had his way, he would have the power to select his own separate "professional investment advisers" from Bessemer Trust.

"It's hard to imagine a better recipe for conflict between co-conservatives and confusion with both Britney and third parties," he said. "Ultimately the appointment of the Bessemer Trust would no longer make sense."

He added that he believes Jamie is trying to make sure Bessemer never becomes the sole conservator of Britney's estate, something the Gimme More star had requested at the start of the legal battle.

Ingham wants to reconsider the possibility of Bessemer becoming a sole conservative in the future. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Thursday.
