Britney Spears received a victory in court on Wednesday (July 14). The star addressed the court virtually through tears,“I’m here to get rid of my dad and charge him for conservatorship abuse,” Spears said via remote video.“I want to press charges for abuse on this conservatorship today… all of it.”
Prior to Britney’s voluntary testimony Judge Brenda Perry granted Spears the ability to hire her own lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, who appeared in person.
Britney urged the judge to remove her father, Jamie Spears, citing conservator abuse. She says she was forced to take psych evaluations and have blood drawn several times a week against her will. Spears says she was told if she participated in the evaluations she would be released from the conservatorship but says she was lied to.
Britney says her driver’s license was taken away, she was prohibited from drinking coffee, she couldn’t choose what she ate, and had her “pink hair pills” taken away. Britney told Judge Perry that she has “serious abandonment issues” and explained that as a child she was scared that her father would show up drunk somewhere.
Britney has asked that Jodi Montgomery remain on her team as conservator over her person. Rosengart asked that Jamie voluntarily remove himself as conservator to which Jamie’s lawyer stated that he wouldn’t step down and questioned the accuracy of Britney’s claims.
