Britney Spears conservatorship: The key claims made by the star as she calls for 13-year legal ruling to end that has made her a prisoner to her ‘family’ which has controlled her life down to the finest detail – absolutely sickening and the corrupt ‘legal’ system made it possible
In a highly anticipated court hearing, Britney Spears has made several claims about the controversial conservatorship that for years has largely seen information kept out of the public domain.
Spears‘ finances and personal affairs have been controlled by the legal agreement since 2008, when she suffered a series of mental breakdowns. Her father Jamie has overseen her life and finances for most of that period, but the 39-year-old has been fighting for him to be removed in recent years.
While the star has spoken in court at least once before, the hearings have been held in private – until now. In a speech lasting more than 20 minutes, given remotely by phone, she asked judge Brenda Penny to end the conservatorship, saying the arrangement is “doing me way more harm than good”.
Here are some of the details Spears revealed and claims she made to the court after 13 years of near silence on the controversial ruling.
Marriage and children
Spears, who is in a relationship with Iranian actor and model Sam Asghari, told the court she wants to be able to get married and have a baby, but that the conservatorship won’t allow it. She claimed she has to use birth control to prevent her getting pregnant.
“All I want is to own my money and for this to end and for my boyfriend to be able to drive me in his (expletive) car,” Spears told the court.
