Loeb & Loeb, a law firm hired to help Mr. Ingham, also offered to resign in the documents submitted.
Mr. Ingham did not explain why he wanted to step down, but he made this decision after Spears regarded the regulator as an “abuse of power”, demanded its termination and criticized his cooperation with her.

After Spears, 39, was deemed unable to find his legal representative after a series of mental breakdowns, the court appointed Mr. Ingham.

Guardianship-an arrangement usually reserved for the elderly and infirm-is supervised by Spears’ father Jamie and her caregiver Jody Montgomery.
Jamie controls his daughter’s estate, which is estimated to be worth more than 50 million U.S. dollars (36 million pounds), while Ms. Montgomery is temporarily in charge of overseeing Spears’ personal affairs.
The Bessemer Trust, the financial management company appointed by the court as the co-custodian of the estate, asked to withdraw from the role last week on the grounds that the singer requested the termination of custody.
According to reports, Spears’ long-term manager Larry Rudolph stepped down this week and said he was told that the top star is planning to “formally retire”.
However, according to her lawyer, Ms. Montgomery has no plans to step down.
In a statement obtained by PA, Laurian Wright said: “Ms. Montgomery has no plans to resign as Ms. Spears’ temporary protector.
“She remains committed to unwaveringly supporting Ms. Spears in all ways within her responsibilities as the protector of that person.
“Just yesterday, Ms. Spears asked Ms. Montgomery to continue to serve. As long as Ms. Spears and the court want her to do so, Ms. Montgomery will continue to serve as the protector.”
Spears has not performed since 2018. She had previously told the court that she had no plans to do so while her father maintained control of her career.
Jamie’s lawyer has been widely criticized for his role in the Free Britney Movement, saying that his smart management of the estate has saved his daughter from an economic crisis.
