Judge sides with Britney Spears in ongoing court battle with her father over finances

Although Britney Spears’ 13-year conservatorship has ended, the legal battle over her finances is still going on.

The singer’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart, faced off in court on Wednesday against attorney Alex Weingarten, who now represents the pop star’s father, Jamie Spears.

Judge Brenda Penny ruled against a request from the elder Spears for Britney Spears to set aside money from her $60 million estate in a reserve to potentially cover legal fees, which would include her father’s.

CNN attended the hearing where Rosengart and Weingarten argued over whether the Grammy winner should be responsible for the latest round of legal fees incurred throughout her conservatorship.

The singer’s father was the conservator of his daughter’s finances and oversaw her medical decisions for more than a decade before he was suspended late last year.

Court documents filed by Rosengart ahead of the hearing and obtained by CNN, state that the pop star’s father allegedly paid himself $6 million from his daughter’s estate during the conservatorship, and that the estate had paid “dozens of different law firms” per Jamie Spears’ petitions throughout the conservatorship, totaling more than $30 million.

The documents also allege that the elder Spears attempted to use his daughter’s fame and resources in a plan to pitch a television show to the Cooking Channel in 2015 titled, “Cookin’ Cruzin’ and Chaos with Jamie Spears.”

CNN has reached out to Weingarten to clarify whether he ever did formally pitch the show.

During the hearing, Weingarten requested that the judge unseal the singer’s medical records, arguing that “the public has the right to know” the full picture.

In an interview with Variety following the hearing, Rosengart called that request “outrageous.”

The lawyers also argued over whether Jamie Spears illegally placed recording devices throughout his daughter’s home during her conservatorship. Weingarten disputed that claim, stating the allegation was “fake or taken out of context.” Rosengart hit back and called Weingarten’s statements “lies.”

CNN has reached out to both legal teams for further comment.

There are two upcoming court hearings in the dispute set for March 16 and July 27.

Jeff Daniels now has a tarantula-killing worm named after him

If you think you know who Jeff Daniels is, think again. You might be thinking of the Hollywood actor — but there’s now a tarantula-killing worm with a very similar name.

The worm — named tarantobelus jeffdanielsi — was discovered by scientists at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) and is one of more than 25,000 nematode species, but only the second one found to infect tarantulas.

Researchers decided to name the worm after Daniels as a nod to his role as Dr. Ross Jennings in the 1990 film “Arachnophobia,” in which his character saves a Californian town from a spider infestation.

“When I first heard a new species of nematode had been named after me, I thought, ‘Why? Is there a resemblance?'” Daniels said in a press release published by UCR Tuesday.

“Honestly, I was honored by their homage to me and Arachnophobia. Made me smile,” he added. “And of course, in Hollywood, you haven’t really made it until you’ve been recognized by those in the field of parasitology.”

Adler Dillman, chief researcher and an associate professor of parasitology at UCR, was initially contacted by a wholesale tarantula breeder in September 2019, who told him that several tarantulas had died with white masses around their mouths.

Dillman and his team identified them as having been infected with jeffdanielsi. Infected tarantulas were observed walking on tiptoes and not eating, researchers said. They also lost the ability to use their pedipalps — the organs that control their fangs.

As for what the species should be called, it was an “easy decision” for Dillman, who told CNN Thursday that Daniels had been “so gracious about the whole thing.”

“We had a lab party where we watched the film over Halloween in 2019,” Dillman told CNN via email. “I already knew that I wanted to name the nematode after Jeff Daniels, because of the obvious connection.

“I’m a child of the 80s, so I grew up watching Arachnophobia and loving Jeff Daniels and his work,” Dillman added. “But I wanted to convince the rest of the lab that naming the nematode after him was the right move. What better way to do that than have them watch the film, which totally holds up by the way.”

Jeffdanielsi are described by the team as “self-fertilizing hermaphrodites that produce their own sperm and eggs” and can produce up to 160 offspring during their lifetime.

Dillman said a tarantula infected with jeffdanielsi could take months to die of starvation, but that the infection was lethal. He and his team are planning further studies to understand how the infection develops and changes tarantulas’ behavior, and whether they can be prevented by breeders.

Their findings were published Monday in the Journal of Parasitology.

Mariska Hargitay says Benson’s ‘been in love’ with Stabler

Mariska Hargitay says Benson’s ‘been in love’ with Stabler

Are we finally going to get the couple we have been wanting for years?

During a recent appearance on Drew Barrymore’s daytime talk show, Mariska Hargitay was asked about her “Law & Order: SVU” charatcer Olivia Benson’s relationship with former partner Elliot Stabler, played by Christopher Meloni.

After a decade of being apart, the characters have reunited and Stabler is on a new show, “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”

Barrymore pointed out that with the death of Stabler’s wife, he is free to explore a romantic relationship with Benson.

“He is free, and I think he’s got eyes for me,” Hargitay said. “But Olivia Benson is hurt! I mean, he left me in a lurch for 10 years. She’s frightened.”

But that doesn’t mean there’s not a possibility of coupledom, according to Hargitay.

“The energy’s there,” she said. “Olivia’s been in love with him for many a year.”

Alright now!

Just don’t get your hopes up for it to happen anytime soon.

“I think that we are slowly finding our way back to it, but I want to give him the amount of time he needs to grieve [his wife] Kathy Stabler,” Hargitay said.

Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show set to be a ’90s lovefest

A trailer for this year’s Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show is a cinematic treat featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar in a ’90s-style video.

“Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray created the trailer, which is titled “The Call.”

It opens with a young Eminem facing a present-day Eminem, performing his single “Rap God.” Next Snoop is seen driving in his car, bobbing along to “The Next Episode.” A glamorous looking Blige appears in a blue coat while “Family Affair” plays. Lamar is then seen with “Humble” playing in the background. Everyone takes a call from Dr. Dre, telling them to unite at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium for the show.

We see a plane take off as the trailer shifts from the East Coast to the West Coast.

“California Love” also plays in the trailer, giving a vibe that the crew will play their hits for the crowd.

The clip ends with an aerial view of the stadium and shouts of football fans.

The Super Bowl airs Feb. 13.

Sia reveals she entered rehab after backlash to ‘Music’ film

Sia revealed that the backlash following her choices in her feature directorial debut, “Music,” left her struggling with her mental health and she entered rehab as a result.

The singer faced criticism from some advocates for its depiction of autism and for casting dancer Maddie Ziegler, who is not on the autism spectrum, to play Music Gamble, a nonverbal autistic teenage girl, in the film. Sia and Ziegler are longtime collaborators who worked on “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart” together.

The film garnered a number of Golden Globe nominations in February 2021, but also harsh reviews. Sia said she was deeply affected by the backlash and apologized on social media at the time.

Sia revealed that it was Kathy Griffin who helped her, after facing her own media crisis in 2017.

In a new New York Times profile on Griffin, Sia credited the comedian with saving her life.

“I was suicidal and relapsed and went to rehab,” the singer said. “She saved my life.”

She added that Griffin invited her to dinner at a paparazzi heavy restaurant in Hollywood last November, where the two could get photographed together and create some positive buzz.
