Rosengart came into Spears’ life after he listened to the shocking audio of her court testimony, in which the public got a glimpse of her side of the story for the first time in more than a decade. “Listening to Britney’s own June 23 court testimony, which was before I was involved or retained, I heard the voice of a woman who had been bullied,” Rosengart told Variety. In the audio, Spears revealed her difficulty trusting her own lawyer at the time, one that neglected to inform her she could petition to terminate the conservatorship. “I was concerned that she had been deprived of certain civil or fundamental liberties, even as she was earning hundreds of millions of dollars as a performer, from which others were benefitting,” he said of the legal bind.
