In the most anticipated hearing in 13 years, Britney Spears is expected to address a judge overseeing her conservatorship for money and affairs.
If Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny does not make a last-minute decision Wednesday to seal proceedings, then people will be able to hear what's going on with this case outside of court - something that has never happened before.
The pop star is set to finally address a judge overseeing her conservatorship.
The hearing has been eagerly awaited by the fans in the so-called #FreeBritney movement, who feel she is being controlled unfairly against her will and is likely to gather outside of court on Wednesday.
The court-appointed attorney of pop star Britney Spears, Samuel Ingham III., asked Judge Mitchell Beckloff for the hearing to allow her client to address him personally. The 39-year-old singer has been trying in recent months to have more control over who manages her conservatorship; she also seeks removal from management by her father.
Britney Spears is set to take part remotely at an upcoming family law case on April 28th so that she can directly speak with judge Mitch Beckloff about certain requests related to a greater say and managerial power over the court's decision-making process.
Spears said through Ingham that she fears her father James Spears, and would not end a 2 1/2-year pause on her career as long as he has control over it. The judge declined to remove him entirely from the conservatorship last week but relinquished his role in managing Britney's life choices. Last week, Britney announced via Instagram post that she wasn’t sure if she will ever perform live again
Britney Spears is a singer and performer most well known for her work in the 1990s. She was recently seen at court regarding her conservatorship, where she testified that there are enough people around to help maintain stability without having total control of it herself (“I have no idea,” she said in response to fan questions about future music releases), but has requested more transparency from Penny since then as he still won't let go entirely.
The singer has never asked the court to end her conservatorship entirely, though she reserves the right. It was put in place as she underwent a mental health crisis and credits it with saving her from financial ruin after 2008. Her father's attorneys have emphasized that Spears needs more supervision so he can protect his daughter and granddaughter’s fortune which is believed to be worth over $50 million (and growing). She would need to prove herself competent for release under law before being released; only then will this family feud come to an end
