Britney Spears will speak directly to the probate court in June regarding her long-standing legal conservatorship.
At a hearing on Tuesday, April 27, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny scheduled a hearing on June 23 to allow Spears to speak on the “status of the conservatorship.”
Britney has been living under court-sanctioned conservatorship since 2008 that gave her father Jamie Spears control over her finances and personal affairs.
She has made it clear that she no long wants her father to act as her conservator. The conservatorship has even sparked a fan-driven #FreeBritney movement.
Samuel Ingham, Spears’ court-appointed attorney, made the request for his client to address the court herself at Tuesday’s April 27 hearing in Los Angeles.
“Conservatee asks the court for a status hearing so she she can address the court directly,” Ingham told the judge. In addition, Ingham also asked for a hearing on an “expedited basis.”
Penny also said that “the purpose of the status hearing would be the status of the conservatorship.”
Other matters, including Britney’s request to appoint Jodi Montgomery, a private professional fiduciary, as her conservator instead of her father, who she asked to resign, were continued until July 14.
