Britney Spears’s mom, Lynne Spears, is the latest member of the singer’s family to publicly weigh in on where she stands after the explosive hearing two weeks ago. In new documents filed with the court, Lynne says Britney’s capacity “is certainly different today” than it was when the conservatorship was instated 13 years ago.

The move comes one day after Britney’s court-appointed lawyer, Samuel Ingham, asked to resign amid mounting criticism of how he has handled the case. On Wednesday, Lynne filed a petition for permission to hire private counsel on behalf of her daughter.

“This Motion to Appoint Private Counsel is of the utmost importance and may very well impact each and every of the other requests submitted by Conservatee in her live testimony at the June 23 Hearing,” the document obtained by Yahoo Entertainment reads. “It is self-evident that before the Court addresses, for example, the termination of the conservatorship, Conservatee must be allowed to consult with counsel of her choosing.”
