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.
Britney Spears has been very frustrated over the delay in terminating her conservatorship as well. While speaking to Hollywood Life, ‘Free Britney’ movement lawyer Lisa MacCarley stated that Britney Spears doesn’t need an evaluation in order to end her conservatorship.
“I agree with her. An evaluation isn’t necessary. There is no one, that I could ever imagine that would say that Britney Spears could not provide for her own needs for food, clothing, and shelter, in the sense that the probate code intended it to be.
There may be things she needs help with. I would say that it was never necessary to have a probate conservatorship established in this manner with all of the owner’s positions from the beginning. Do I think she needs to be evaluated to determine if she can provide her own needs for medical care, food, clothing, and shelter? To me, it’s obvious that she doesn’t need to be evaluated, she can do that.”
At this point in time, it is not known if there will be any progress regarding the termination of her conservatorship after being rejected by a judge. We will keep you updated on this ongoing case.
