“First, once again I want to thank Britney Spears for her courage and for her strength,” Mathew S. Rosengart said outside court. “I want to thank Judge Penny for her courtesy in welcoming my firm and I into this case. And I also want to thank Britney Spears’ fans and supporters, the outrage and support for the firm, myself and Britney has truly been overwhelming, from coast to coast and around the world.”

He concluded his brief remarks by saying, “Finally, the last thing I’m going to say about this matter, as I said in court last week and outside, my firm and I moving aggressively and expeditiously to file a petition to remove Jamie Spears unless he resigns first.”

Last Wednesday, Spears petitioned for Rosengart to be appointed as her attorney after her court-appointed attorney Samuel D. Ingham III resigned. Rosengart is a prominent Hollywood attorney and a former federal prosecutor. He has previously represented Ben Affleck, Steven Spielberg and Sean Penn.

During the hearing, Spears was crying as she reiterated her request for her father Jamie Spears to step down as co-conservator.

Britney Spears’ conservatorship dates back to 2008, around the time of her very public mental health struggles. After losing custody of her two children to former husband Kevin Federline and then refusing to turn over her boys after a visit, Spears was hospitalized and placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, beginning the conservatorship under her father, Jamie Spears.

The pop star is actually under two conservatorships: a conservatorship over her estate, which focuses on financial matters, and a conservatorship over her person, which grants the conservator control over her medical and personal decisions.

Last month, Britney Spears spoke out publicly for the first time about the conservatorship at a hearing in the Los Angeles probate court. Since her speech at the June 23 hearing, there have been a series of petitions by those involved in the conservatorship.

“I just want my life back,” Spears said at the hearing. “And it’s been 13 years. And it’s enough. It’s been a long time since I’ve owned my money. And it’s my wish and my dream for all of this to end without being tested.”

Britney Spears was given drugs that left her ‘talking about parallel universes’: ex-guard

Britney Spears was given powerful prescription drugs weekly during at least one point in her conservatorship — leaving her babbling about “parallel universes,’’ an ex-bodyguard says.

Fernando Flores, a former cop who helped provide security for the 39-year-old fallen superstar in 2010, told Britain’s The Sun in a new interview that a woman would arrive at Spears’ home every Friday with the medication while he was on the job.

“I’d explain [to Spears] what everything was — three anti-psychotic medications and birth-control pills,’’ Flores said.

“She’d go from sane to talking about parallel universes.”

Spears was put under a conservatorship, aka legal guardianship, in 2008 after a mental breakdown — and is now locked in a court battle to gain her freedom from it.

Under the restrictive set-up, her father Jamie Spears and a court-appointed personal guardian control decisions about her well-being and finances.

Flores said that during the several months he worked the Spears security gig, the singer’s phone was monitored, visitors had their bags searched and she would sob as her dad ordered her around.

“Jamie would call three or four times a day to check what was going on,’’ the former security guard said.

Flores made headlines in 2011 when he sued the “Toxic” singer’s estate for $10 million, claiming she sexually harassed him, did drugs — and was basically disgusting.

“She broke wind or picked her nose unselfconsciously and unapologetically before [Flores] and others and she was constantly and gratuitously loud and profane in her speech,” the document alleged.

“She did not bathe for days on end, did not use deodorant, did not brush her teeth, did not fix her hair, did not wear shoes or socks.”

A source tied to the singer called Flores “a liar” at the time.

The case was later settled, RadarOnline reported.

On Monday, a few hours from her next court battle against her conservatorship in Los Angeles court, Britney posted a photo on Instagram of a young woman on a floor mat with her legs spread — and the caption, MY YOGA POSE WILL NOT MAKE ME FART.

“OK … so I got a lot off my chest last week,” Britney wrote — after sobbing Wednesday to the judge overseeing her conservatorship case that the arrangement was “abusive” and her father should be charged.

“I said what I needed to say … and life goes on,” she said. “where’s my yoga mat now????”
