  1. @MakeMySugarFall @MonaLisa613 I also listened to the live audio and I was floored, angry, and so proud of Britney. Especially when Jodi's lawyer tried to get it sealed before she even spoke and Britney said something about how they'd exploited her life enough, she wants it open. Also I think what she had to say in regards to lying about being happy is proof that she DOES have some involvement with the things on Instagram that goes beyond recording the content. I'm also unsure if she meant currently or when she made that "all is well" video, since a lot of her complaints have come from the time they sent her to that facility against her will. Either way, I, too, am glad she has her children and Sam to give her some form of happiness amongst the abuse she's suffered. Vivian said something along the lines of Jamie is sad that Britney is in so much pain and that he loves her. The same tired "daddy loves you" narrative that is completely and utter bullshit! Actions speak louder than words, Jamie. PROVE it. His silence about all the things Britney said he did speaks volumes that she wasn't lying. One statement that Britney said I felt was REALLY powerful. When she said "I wasn't good, I was great" - yes, yes you are.
  2. (CNN)Britney Spears broke her silence in a court hearing on Wednesday regarding her court-ordered conservatorship that has been in place for nearly 13 years. Spears requested to address Judge Brenda Penny to speak out about the arrangement. The singer attended the hearing virtually by phone. Spears spoke more than 20 minutes as she read from a letter. "A lot has happened since two years ago, the last time I was in court. I haven't been back to court because I didn't feel I was heard," Spears began. She said she felt she had been forced to perform, was given no privacy and was made to use birth control, take medication and attend therapy sessions against her will. Spears said on Wednesday that she was put on lithium, despite her objections. "It's a strong drug. You can go mentally impaired if you stay on it longer than five months. I felt drunk, I couldn't even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything. They had me with six different nurses." Lithium is commonly used to treat bipolar disorder, which often causes episodes of depression and mania -- a feeling of uncontrolled irritability or excitement. It can also be used to treat depression. Spears criticized how her family, including her father Jamie Spears, has handled her conservatorship and responded to her concerns about her care. "My family didn't do a God damn thing," she said. "Anything I had to do, [my dad] was the one who approved all of it. My whole family did nothing." Spears' father had been the conservator of her estimated $60 million estate since 2008, along with attorney Andrew Wallet, following a series of personal issues that played out publicly for the singer. Following Wallet's resignation in 2019, Spears had been solely responsible for overseeing her finances until Judge Penny appointed Bessemer Trust in November 2020 to serve as co-conservator. In response to her remarks, Vivian Thoreen, an attorney for Jamie Spears told CNN, "Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much." Britney Spears said she has expressed her disappointment about her medical care and management of her career to her dad but that she felt like he "loved it." "The control he had to hurt his own daughter, he loved it. I worked seven days a week ... it was like sex trafficking. I didn't have a credit card, cash or my passport." Spears also addressed why she has not brought up these issues on social media. "I thought I might become happy," she said. "I'm in denial. I am traumatized. I'm not happy. I can't sleep, I'm so angry, it's insane." "I have never said it openly I didn't think anything of it. I thought people would make fun of me, she's lying, she's got everything, she's Britney Spears. It's been long time since I've owned my money. It's my wish for this to end," she added. Spears said that she wants to hire an attorney of her choosing, since her current counsel, Samuel Ingham III was court appointed in 2008. "For the past f***ing 13 years, I'm been so good and so pretty and I do everything," she said. "I can't allow my ignorant father to do that to me ... I don't even drink alcohol. I should drink alcohol given what they've put my heart through." She pleaded with judge to take her concerns seriously. "The last time I spoke to you, it made me feel like I was dead, like I didn't matter. like you thought I was lying. I'm not lying, so that maybe you understand the depth and degree, I deserve changes." Spears also said that she wants to start a family with her boyfriend, Sam Asghari. "I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told I can't get married. I have an IUD inside me but this so-called team won't let me go to the doctor to remove it because they don't want me to have anymore children. This conservatorship is doing me way more harm then good." She said that she hasn't been allowed to ride in her boyfriend's car alone. "I'd like to be able to share my story with the world," she said. "I want to be able to be heard. By making me keep this in for so long, it's not good for my heart. It concerns me I'm not allowed to be able to heard. I have the right to use my voice. My attorney says I can't let the public know what they did to me ... I shouldn't be able to be in a conservatorship. The laws need to change. Ma'am, I've worked since I was 17 years old. I can't go somewhere unless I meet someone every week in an office. I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive, but ma'am there are a thousand conservatorships that are abusive as well. I want to end the conservatorship. Spears ended her remarks by saying, "I deserve to have a two to three year break. I feel open and I'm OK to talk to you about this. I feel ganged up on, bullied, left out and alone. I'm tired of feeling alone. I deserve to have the same rights, having a child or any of those things." Following her remarks, the court took a recess and then stopped the public audio feed of the proceedings, citing live tweets of hearing. A previously scheduled court hearing is next set for July 14. ---- In the interest of Britney being completely heard as she wants, here is her full statement.

  5. A lot of this is heartbreakingly frustrating and a testament to Britney's incredible strength. To me it shows that Ingham HAS tried for YEARS to advocate for Britney's wishes, but was fighting a losing battle. The previous judge was absolute GARBAGE, and makes these small wins Britney's had in court lately seem much bigger in comparison. I feel like a lot of this were those things Ingham said that they could reveal about Jamie that he wouldn't want out there should he continue to fight against her wishes. I saw this on LawyersForBritney and I think it's important to note regarding the lack of a petition to terminate being filed. They said, if the conservator (Jamie) does not voluntarily step down it could go to trial, which is costly and time consuming. So, it seems like Britney's strategy is still to get Jamie to step down on his own to avoid that. Tomorrow will be very interesting. Britney has all of my support and well wishes.

  10. To me it's very obvious Britney and her side have a strategy in place. Nothing will make ending this easy for Britney, including the possibility that she could hire a different lawyer. If that was suddenly an option, like I said, I don't see her hiring someone new and starting this all over again. Hiring a new lawyer would be a giant step backward, they'd have to familiarize themselves with 12 years of her case. But, if she wanted a new lawyer, she didn't need this bill. She could get an actual capacity declaration, prove she's capable of hiring a lawyer (and likely that she doesn't need a conservatorship at all) and get it done that way. Her lawyer in the beginning of this, Streisand I think? failed her. And who knows, maybe Britney will tell the judge just that. That she wants a new lawyer, that she wants Jamie gone, that she wants to end the personal conservatorship. THAT is a true win for Britney. Being able to speak directly to the judge. But fans putting so much hope on this bill, like if it was passed Britney would have got a different lawyer and be free quicker— it was foolish, wishful thinking.

  12. TBH I really don't understand why so many fans had their hopes set on this bill. It wouldn't have been make or break for Britney. I doubt she would have hired some different lawyer being this far in and with some obvious plan in place. Besides, conservatees can already hire their own lawyers if they're deemed able to do so.
