Britney Spears wants to testify in court herself about the guardianship. A hearing will take place on June 23.
Pop singer Britney Spears wants to speak personally in court about her tutelage. Their lawyer Samuel Ingham said, after information from several American media outlets, that this is the wish of these 39-year-olds. The hearing is scheduled for June 23. According to Angham, Spearsum has requested an expedited appointment. In a legal dispute with her father over her guardianship, Spears has never spoken before.
Britney Spears has been under guardianship since 2008
After the singer collapsed mentally due to professional and personal problems, a court decided in 2008 to transfer custody to her father. Since then, James Spears has managed his daughter’s famous fortune. Last year, Britney Spears went to court to get him out of the role. In November, Judge Brenda Penney confirmed guardianship in the Los Angeles Supreme Court, but appointed a financial guardian as co-trustee at the request of the musician. James Spears’ objections to the guardianship split in February were dismissed.
A documentary published in the New York Times in early February about Spears’ life under the tutelage of her father sparked heated discussions, especially on social media. Several celebrities have expressed their support for the singer under the hashtag #FreeBritney.
