Britney Spears made rare public remarks at a hearing today regarding her court-ordered conservatorship. She made it clear that she wants her conservatorship to end and said that she wants to sue her family. This story is developing.
“I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized,” Spears said (according to The New York Times). “I want to end the conservatorship without having to be evaluated. … I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive.”
The hearing has been widely anticipated by those following the case since Judge Brenda Penny granted Spears’ request in April. A new report in The New York Times published yesterday indicated that Britney has been pushing back on her father’s role as conservator behind-the-scenes for years. Jamie Spears and the conservatorship were the topic of the Framing Britney Spears documentary.
