Britney Spears railed on her dad and her management team during Wednesday’s explosive court hearing … saying she wants the conservatorship to end now, and she’s so angry she thinks her family has abused her so much that she’d like to sue them.
She also said she wants to get married and have another baby but she’s being blocked by the conservatorship. She says she has an IUD but the conservator will not let her have it removed.
Britney said she’s “not here to be anyone’s slave” … which apparently is how she feels.
Britney said she does not want further medical evaluation. She wants out now.
She said her family did nothing to protect her. She was sent to a small home in Beverly Hills for rehab once and it cost $60,000 — she says they were trying to hurt her and her dad “loved it.”
She said the people who did this to her should not be able to get away with it. She wishes she could sue her family.
Britney says she was “forced” to do her Vegas residency. She said when she was doing the Vegas show, she told her management she didn’t want to do it because it was too much. She said she was forced to do the tour and the next thing she knew they changed her medication, putting her on Lithium, which had a terrible effect on her. She said she was scared and her whole family did nothing.
Britney said even her therapist was uncaring. She says after she wanted to put an end to Vegas, the therapist said she was being difficult and not taking her meds. That’s when she was put on Lithium. She said her family — and especially her dad — didn’t care.
She says she pled for a break from Vegas after 4 years but wasn’t heard. She said she was told she was uncooperative, which was absolutely not true.
As for why she’s now asking to end the conservatorship, she said she didn’t know she could until now.
She said she has absolutely no privacy and when she was at home there were times she couldn’t see her boyfriend or kids. The caretakers of the conservatorship would violate her privacy and watch her change while she was naked.
She said she doesn’t want to work for the people she pays, saying even if she’s sick she’s required to go to at least 3 meetings a week. She wants that limited to 1 therapy session a week.
Britney said she should be able to sue a conservator who threatens that if she doesn’t do what they say in terms of therapy they can withhold her money and deny her a vacation in Maui.
Britney claims, “The conservatorship from the beginning … it makes no sense. I pay people money and they control me. I worked since I was 17 years old and this conservatorship is abusive. I don’t feel I can live a full life. I don’t even believe in therapy. I always thought I could take it to God.”
She repeated she wants the conservatorship to end. She says she is being hounded by paparazzi and the conservatorship is not protecting her or giving her any privacy.
Britney said she wants to end the conservatorship and doesn’t want to be evaluated as a pre-condition.
Britney said, “They make me feel like I’m living in a rehab program and not my home. I will do therapy once a week because I do need it.”
She continued, “I want to get married and have a baby. I wanted to take the IUD out and have a baby but the conservator won’t let me because they don’t want me to have a baby.”
Britney stressed that it took a year during COVID for her to get self-care methods.
She says she’s scared of people and doesn’t trust people. Britney made a point that she’s stuck going to therapy in Westlake, which is very public. She said the paparazzi saw her crying as she left therapy Tuesday.
Britney doesn’t understand why she can’t do therapy sessions at home — and is upset with Jodi Montgomery, her personal conservator, who she says has become heavy-handed.
The judge thanked Britney and said it took a lot of courage to speak out.
Britney’s lawyer was asked if he wanted to file a petition to end the conservatorship, but the lawyer said there were confidentiality issues. He said if Britney wants to file a petition he would do that, but she hasn’t asked as of yet.
Lynne Spears‘ lawyer said in 2019 when Britney was in court she didn’t feel she was heard, and it’s important today that she be heard. Today is the day the court put an action plan in place to provide the relief Britney is asking for — to end the conservatorship.
The judge said she would entertain any request to end the conservatorship and start the process of holding hearings.
The singer appeared live, via Zoom, in the Downtown L.A. courtroom, to voice her issues with her father, Jamie Spears … who we now definitely know she wants removed as one of her conservators.
Earlier Wednesday, Sam Asghari seemingly provided some evidence on his t-shirt Britney would ask to terminate the conservatorship. He’s the only person with day-to-day contact with Brit, and the “Free Britney” message emblazoned on his shirt was one big clue.
Britney called for this hearing and, as you’d expect, she had throngs of supporters from the #FreeBritney movement gathered outside the courthouse to support her.
Jamie already stepped down as co-conservator of Britney’s person back in 2019 — Jodi Montgomery is now her permanent personal conservator — but we’ve been told Brit wants him out as the co-conservator of her estate as well … so he can no longer manage her business affairs.
In fact, Brit’s stated she will not perform again as long as Jamie is part of the conservatorship — something she seemed to reiterate when she recently told fans on IG she has “no idea” if she’ll ever take the stage again. Today’s hearing could impact her decision.
Of course, all of this is why Britney’s fans couldn’t wait for what she had to say in court.
As we reported, Britney asking the judge to end the conservatorship is only the beginning, because the issue is whether she’s able to safely care for herself.
For answers, the judge will look to a throng of doctors, psychiatrists and others who have evaluated her over the years. Our sources say, in the past, the medical professionals determined her condition made the conservatorship necessary — and they have weighed in over the last 13 years in court.
The judge will no doubt hear from the doctors, and they believe she’s now able to safely care for herself, the judge would/should end the conservatorship. If not, it’s unlikely she’d win the day, although the judge could still make changes to the conservatorship.
Many believe the #FreeBritney movement may have also sparked her desire to speak for herself — instead of leaving it to lawyers — and as you can tell from the crowd outside the court … the movement’s still going strong.
