Britney Spears' legal action against her father Jamie Spears has continued in a Los Angeles courtroom where it was claimed the singer is "afraid" of him.
Jamie Spears has controlled Britney's career and personal life by a conservatorship since 2008, shortly after the singer endured a mental breakdown in public.
Britney, 38, has now vowed to not work again while her father is in control of her life.
A courtroom in Los Angeles has now heard how the father and daughter have no working relationship and no longer speak.
Samuel D Ingham, who is representing the Womanizer songstress told the courtroom that Britney has told him on several occasions that "she is afraid of her father".
He added that the case is currently at a crossroads with Britney and Jamie having no "viable working relationship".
A representative for Britney's mum, Lynne, said that she agreed Jamie should be dismissed.
While lawyers for Jamie Spears instantly dismissed claims and added that he hadn't spoken to his daughter who had been advised by legal teams to cut contact.

Reps for Jamie said that when he took control of Britney's affairs, her personal estate was subject to lawsuits reportedly in their millions but he has now turned her fortune around, to an estimated £45 million.
In court filings, Spears said she wants the Bessemer Trust appointed as "sole conservator".
They went on to say that Jamie has always acted in the best interests of the pop princess.
Jamie's legal team added that it would be an "extraordinary" move to suspend him from his role.
Sitting at Stanley Mosk Courthouse for a largely virtual hearing, Judge Brenda Penny made Bessemer Trust co-conservator of the case but did not suspend Jamie from his role, saying she would hear that part of the case at a later date.
The hearing took place against the backdrop of the #FreeBritney movement, created by fans who believe Britney is being controlled by those around her.
It's claimed that Britney has sent encrypted messages through her social media posts.
Daily Star Online has approached representatives for Ms. Spears for comment.
