-Finally some good news on the Britney Spears front. TMZ is reporting that Jamie Spears is not waiting for the next hearing at the end of September and instead has filed court docs to step down as his daughter’s conservator. He’s a whiny little jerkface about it, but still! In the filing, he slams Lynne Spears and adds, “There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate … and it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears’ best interests.”
-Meanwhile, police are monitoring death threats being made to the judge who’s overseeing Spears’ conservatorship case.
