The Daily Dish For September 8th


Britney Spears’ Father Files Petition To End Her 13-Year Long Conservatorship

After years of fans crying to #FreeBritney it looks like it’s finally happening.Britney Spears’fatherJamiefiled a petition in Los Angels Superior Court yesterday to end her 13-years long conservatorship.

In the petition Jamie states his daughter “is entitled to have this Court now seriously consider whether this conservatorship is no longer required,” adding that circumstances have changed "to such an extent that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship may no longer exist." The petition adds that the end of the conservatorship should be able to happen without a psychological evaluation, which Britney doesn’t want. 

"The conservatorship has helped Ms. Spears get through a major life crisis, rehabilitate and advance her career, and put her finances and her affairs in order. But recently, things have changed," the filing reads. "Ms. Spears is now outspoken in her frustration with the level of control imposed by a conservatorship, and has pleaded with this Court to 'let her have her life back.'"

And Britney’s freedom could come sooner rather than later. The judge in the case is due to rule on the petition September 29th.

John Mulaney Talks About His Crazy Year...And His New BABY!

John Mulaney’s appearance on Seth Meyers’ show last night offered some insight into his tumultuous year – and the fact that he’s having a baby with Olivia Munn!You heard that right.After months of speculation by fansabout a potential pregnancy, Mulaney got real about the changes in his life ever since Meyers and others assisted in an intervention that saw Mulaney head into rehab, out of his marriage to Anna Marie Tendler...and ultimately into Munn’s arms.

Sitting down with Meyers, Mulaney broke down the last year –which was eventful for him, to say the least.He got out of rehab in October, moved out of his ex-wife’s place, hosted “Saturday Night Live,” then he relapsed on drugs which led to the intervention with Meyers and friends, went to rehab again and moved on to sober living… and after all that? He sparked a romance with Munn, with who he’s now expecting his first child. As Meyers put it, he “really crammed so much” into one year.

“I got into this relationship that has been really beautiful, with someone incredible who has dealt with the non-coked-up version of me,” Mulaney said. “That’s been very incredible and she’s kind of held my hand through that hell, and we are having a baby together. I’m gonna be a dad. We’re both really really happy.”Check out a clip to the right.
