Britney's dad given power to sack management
Britney Spears' father has been given power to fire her business management, it has emerged.

James Spears has already taken control of the singer's affairs this week, a right he will hold until at least Thursday (February 14). And now, according to court documents, he has been given the right to fire Howard Grossman.

Court commissioner Reva Goetz also said that Mr Spears was entitled to see all of the management's "documents, records and assets relating to Britney Spears," reports the BBC.

However, Mr Grossman has not divulged whether he has been fired by Mr Spears, commenting: "My reputation speaks for itself."

Spears was admitted to a Los Angeles psychiatric ward on January 31, but she left on Wednesday (February 7), against the wishes of her parents.
