Britney Spears' conservatorship has received a legal request to terminate the case days before the pop star is set to have her say in court.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, a party has come forward to request the end of Britney's decade-long conservatorship, claiming that she is perfectly capable of handing her own affairs and finances.
Under the current regulations, Britney's father Jamie regulates many aspect of her life including restrictions on her spending, who she visits and even the kind of phone she has.
The Hit Me Baby One More Time hitmaker is currently battling to have Jamie replaced on the conservatorship by an independent financial guru.

Before Britney speaks on the case herself next week, a mystery party has come forward claiming to have an ' interest of justice' in seeing the conservatorship end, according to The Blast.
The claim is said to have not come from anyone associated to the pop star.
In the request, the person claims, "At the time of appointment, a conservatorship was necessary for the following reasons: Ms. Spears may have been suffering from severe depression at the time of conservatorship, due to life circumstances."
The legal filing continues: "A conservatorship of the person is no longer necessary for the conservatee for the following reasons: Ms. Spears has shown consistently, her ability to take care of her own needs. Feed herself, cloth herself, house herself, pay her bills, and seek medical assistance when needed. Ms. Spears is not a threat to herself or others."
The legal order was imposed 12 years ago when Britney suffered a breakdown following her split from husband Kevin Federline
The request goes on: "Wherefore, Petitioner requests an order of this court that the conservatorship of the person of Britney Jean Spears, the conservatee, be terminated."
Next week, Britney is expected to speak in court in the latest hearing of the long-standing legal battle.
However, it has been revealed the pop star will not attend court in person and will appear via live stream.
