Spears has been under her father’s supervision since 2008 due to a mental breakdown, but she wants to get rid of that. She previously told the judge that she felt like a “slave” to her father. The singers started legal proceedings against her father as early as 2019.
During the hearing, Judge Brenda Penny authorized the singer to hire her own attorney, rather than having her assigned an attorney. Spears had requested this during a hearing last month. Her previous lawyer recently resigned. Spears’ new attorney Matthew Rosengart was already present at the new hearing yesterday.
The 39-year-old singer was again emotional about the situation she has been in for 13 years. She sometimes cried and didn’t mince her words. “Thanks to my fans, I finally dare to speak out against my family, who have been trying to silence me and my fans for years.”
“If this isn’t assault, then I don’t know what is,” Spears said. “While my family locked me up against my will in a mental health clinic, they were all vacationing at my vacation home in Florida. Then there’s something wrong with you, isn’t it?”
‘I’m not crazy’
“Also, my father often called me drunk from my house,” she continued. “The only reason I can think of is that they wanted to destroy me. They wanted everyone to believe I’m crazy, but I’m not. I’m here and I want to get rid of my father and the curatorship. Today. “
The singer also said that her father did not let her drink coffee, she was not allowed to take vitamins for her hair and that he took her driver’s license after she was arrested once for driving 10 kilometers too fast.
