What did Britney Spears say at her court hearing?
Britney Spears, 39, took a stand for herself at her conservatorship hearing, saying: “I just want my life back.”
She spoke via phone for 20 minutes and claimed that the conservatorship from the beginning "makes no sense."
"I pay people money and they control me. I worked since I was 17-years-old and this conservatorship is abusive," she said.
"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."
The singer repeated she wants conservatorship to end and said being hounded by paparazzi as the conservatorship is not protecting her and giving her "no privacy."
"I want to end the conservatorship and I don't want to be evaluated as a pre-condition," she said.
"It took a year during COVID to get self-care methods. Conservator lied and said I could get nothing done. I couldn't get my nails done… anything. The conservator is now like my dad was… they work for me."
Spears then heartbreakingly explained she is "scared of people, does not trust people" and is "stuck in Westlake where she has no privacy.”
She also said “the paparazzi saw her crying as she left therapy Tuesday."
Spears claims she "doesn't understand" why she cannot do sessions at home, and is upset with Jodi Montgomery, her personal conservator, who she says has become too involved.
What did Britney Spears say about her dad in the court hearing?
Spears criticized her family, including her father Jamie Spears, on how they have handled her conservatorship.
"My family didn't do a God damn thing," she said.
"Anything I had to do, [my dad] was the one who approved all of it. My whole family did nothing."
She also claimed that she was put on Lithium against her will.
"It's a strong drug. You can go mentally impaired if you stay on it longer than 5 months. I felt drunk, I couldn't even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything. They had me with six different nurses," she added.
Spears conservatorship has been ongoing since 2008 after she had a psychiatrist lapse.
Jamie was appointed head of the conservatorship, controlling her estate worth an estimated $60million.
What did Britney Spears say about having children?
Spears said that she wants to marry and take out her IUD to have another baby.
However, the singer, who has been in a relationship with boyfriend Sam for years – claimed she is unable to grow her family because her "conservator won't let her."
While speaking via audio, Spears said: “I want to get married and have a baby.
“I wanted to take the IUD out and have a baby but conservator won't let me because they don't want me to have a baby.”
She also compared her controlling legal matter to sex trafficking.
The singer stated: "In California, the only similar thing to this is called sex trafficking, making anyone work against their will.
"And taking all their possessions away, credit card, cash, phone, passport."
