Britney Spears Breaks Silence to Speak in Court on Conservator Case

In an upcoming probate court hearing, Britney Spears will speak out after years of silence on her legal conservatorship.

The conservatorship has become a hot topic of late, with #freebritney trending on multiple social media platforms. And after Framing Britney Spears, a documentary exploring the conservator case—among other issues—was released in February, public interest in the case has only increased.

Now, after a Tuesday hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny has scheduled for Spears to appear in probate court on June 26. There, Spears will be allowed to speak on the “status of the conservatorship,” according to Variety.

The probate attorney assigned to Spears’ case, Samuel Ingham, has declined to indicate what Spears will say during her appearance. The conservatorship, which has stood for the past 13 years, positions Britney’s father, Jaime Spears as her conservator.

Bessemer Trust, an asset management company, was named a co-conservator last fall per Ingham’s request. Still, the order has yet to go into effect due to disputes on the governing language, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Spears has said on Instagram that she is “embarrassed” by the aforementioned documentary.

“My life has always been very speculated …watched … and judged really my whole life…I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people,” read a portion of the post’s caption.

The 39-year-old continued: “Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person’s life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens 📷✨ !!!!”

A separate hearing for other issues pertaining to the conservatorship has been scheduled for July 14th.
