Jamie Spears got permission to fire daughter Britney Spears's business manager after complaining the manager didn't follow directions and failed to turn over documents, court papers show.

The allegations are contained in a motion filed Feb. 7 by probate court attorneys for Jamie and Britney Spears. The motion was granted, allowing Jamie to fire manager Howard Grossman.

"The temporary co-conservators believe that they cannot trust Mr. Grossman to follow instruction," says the motion, made public Monday.

The motion alleges that when Spears was released from a psychiatric hospital, Grossman arranged for her to meet with visitors and attorneys in violation of court orders.

Grossman could not be reached Monday for comment. He previously told PEOPLE that he didn't understand why the conservators would want to fire him.
