Pop sensation Britney Spears is certainly a controversial figure in the music world, going back to her 2007 meltdown and her father then moving to form a conservatorship around Spears’ estate.
Britney Spears finally spoke out against her father’s conservatorship on June 23rd addressing a Los Angeles Superior Court judge via video. For a long time, Britney Spears has been working hard to get her father out of her life. Spears compared her father to a “sex trafficker” and said that “he loved” having control over her.
Spears also stated that she would like to “sue” her family and that “they should go to jail.” Spears added that she wants the “abusive” conservatorship to end “without being evaluated.”
Two weeks since the hearing, now it seems more details have been revealed according to a report by The New Yorker. Spears’ ex-manager Sam Lufti gave a few examples of how much surveillance the singer has to endure. Spears was allegedly forced to borrow phones from strangers just to contact her manager.
“I’ll go years without contact, and then I’ll get a call every once in a while from her in a closet. Last time she called me, she was at Ralphs, in Calabasas[…] After she hung up, I got a call from the same number — it’s an Asian doctor, who says, ‘Wow, this is surreal, Britney just borrowed my phone.’ Five years ago, she borrowed a phone at the gym and just made off with it.
My opinion is that this conservatorship has drastically affected her mind-set.”
We certainly hope Britney Spears can be free from her father soon enough as her mental health is definitely in shambles, even if her father claimed he hasn’t controlled her conservatorship for the past two years.
