Britney Spears is reportedly set for a 'fireworks show' court battle with her father Jamie over his continued conservatorship of the singer's estate.

According to TMZ, the star's mother Lynne will ask a judge to terminate Jamie as Britney's conservator in a court hearing scheduled for Wednesday, as she believes he is 'no longer fit' to continue in the role.

In the wake of an altercation with Britney's son Sean-Preston, 14, last month Jamie stepped down from some of his duties as conservator. He will not face any criminal charges in that case due to 'insufficient evidence'.

Jamie also filed court documents to transfer responsibility for Britney's medical and personal decisions to her care manager, Jodi Montgomery - he is expected to step back into the role in January 2020 and continues to oversee her finances.

The court hearing - which Britney is said to be attending - will reportedly see the unveiling of a critical piece of evidence, a report by a court-appointed evaluator into the care the star has received.

The evaluator looked into Britney's doctor Dr Timothy Benson - who died unexpectedly aged 48 on August 24 - as well as Jamie, with the report said to be kept tightly under wraps until the court hearing. 

MailOnline has contacted Britney's representatives for comment.

The alleged hearing comes as it emerged Jamie will not face any criminal charges after being accused of shaking one of his grandsons.

It follows a complaint by Britney's ex-husband Kevin Federline that Jamie laid hands on the couple's son Sean Preston during an altercation on August 25.

'The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office investigated allegations involving child abuse by Mr. Spears. After reviewing the evidence, there is insufficient proof that a criminal offense was committed by Mr. Spears,' Ventura County District Attorney Gregory D. Totten said in a statement to RadarOnline.

Federline obtained a restraining order against his former father-in-law in the wake of the incident which prohibits Jamie from coming near Sean or his brother Jayden James, 12, for three years. 

Jamie is still under the restraining order, with claims that Britney is 'furious' at her father and hasn't spoken to him since the incident.

A source told the website there is a 'strong likelihood' Britney will attend court to support her mother, who she has grown close to in the last six months. 

Lynne is not said to be asking to become Britney's conservator, with another source adding there will be 'major surprises' in court.   

The Spears family has become embroiled in drama since the incident in August, which shortly afterwards saw Jamie relinquish control of Britney's conservatorship.    

Kevin Federline told police on August 25 that a 'very angry' Jamie broke down a door amid a row with Sean, The Blast reported.  

It happened when Britney and the two boys were visiting with Jamie at his home in Westlake Village.

 'Britney had the boys at Jamie’s condo on the evening of August 24. Jamie and Sean Preston got into an argument. Sean Preston felt unsafe and locked himself into a room. Jamie broke into the room and shook Sean Preston,' a source told UsWeekly

'The whole incident was very upsetting to her and her boys. Kevin was and still is furious,' the source added.  

Federline, 41, and Britney, 37, were married from 2004 to 2007 and until recently had shared 50-50 custody of their sons.

However, that arrangement was modified earlier this month to give the DJ, who has four other children, custody 70 percent of the time with the pop star getting 30 percent of custodial rights. 

Legal recourse: Federline obtained a restraining order against his former father-in-law in the wake of the incident which prohibits Jamie from coming near Sean or Jayden for three years
