After appearing virtually in court yesterday, Britney Spears spoke candidly of her life that is under the control of her father, Jamie Spears, and how she’s prohibited from removing the IUD that was placed her body under his conservatorship.
The pop star revealed that she wants to get married and have a baby.
She announced this during her public testimony in a court hearing about her conservatorship on Wednesday, June, 23rd.
But unlike a normal couple who would start trying to conceive right away, Britney sadly has to go through court first.
This is because she isn’t allowed to get pregnant under a legal arrangement.
A legal agreement was put in place in 2008 and her conservators won’t approve of her removing her birth control – an IUD (intrauterine contraceptive device).
Britney’s father and her attorney were put in charge of her estate in 2008 and put in charge of her medical care and career oversight.
“I was told, right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby,” Britney told the judge, “I have an [IUD] inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant.”
“I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does by having a child, a family, any of those things.”
Britney has two children with ex-husband Kevin Federline, fifteen-year-old Sean and fourteen-year-old Jaydn. She’s now dating fitness expert Sam Asghari, who has been supporting her and was spotted wearing a “Free Britney” T-shirt ahead of the recent court battle.
Britney was afraid of her father and didn’t want to perform…
And she revealed that she does not want her father to control her affairs as co-conservator of her estate.
In November 2020, Britney’s lawyer Samuel D. Ingham III argued in court that she is afraid of her father and would not perform as long as he was in charge of her. The judge, unfortunately, did not suspend Jamie but added the Bessemer Trust group as a co-conservator instead.
“She articulated she feels the conservatorship has become an oppressive and controlling tool against her,” a court investigator said in 2016.
Britney accused her father of having “too much control” in her life, according to the New York Times, citing court records that haven’t been independently verified.
At one point, Britney tried assuring her fans that she was “totally fine.”
“I’m extremely happy. I have a beautiful home, beautiful children. I’m taking a break right now, because, um, I’m enjoying myself.”
But fans who didn’t believe she was doing ok started trying to decode her messages as she revealed to them that she’s “totally fine.”
In her court case on Wednesday, she explained that the conservatorship is abusive and she’s definitely ready for it to end. But according to her attorney, Vivian Thoreen, he’s just trying to protect her from exploitation.
During the hearing, Jamie’s attorney read a statement on his behalf: “Mr. Spears is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain. Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much.”
“I understand that every story needs a villain, but people have it so wrong here,” Vivian said on Good Morning America in February.
“This is a story about a fiercely loving, dedicated, and loyal father who rescued his daughter from a life-threatening situation. People were harming her, and they were exploiting her. Jamie saved Britney’s life.”
However, Britney continues fighting against both her attorney’s and father’s beliefs. It is well and truly time to free Britney.
