Britney Spears speaks directly to LA court on her conservatorship

Britney Spears, whose mental health has been publicly discussed for years, will address a Los Angeles court in June regarding her conservatorship.

Spears, 39, has been under conservatorship since 2008, but rarely takes part in court hearings and has not publicly commented on the legal arrangement where a court-appointed adviser controls her personal and financial affairs, including her medical treatment, security and career.

“My client (Britney Spears) has requested a hearing at which she can address the court directly,” the singer’s lawyer Samuel Ingham told the court on Tuesday. “My client has asked that it be done on an expedited basis.”

The singer’s father, Jamie Spears, was appointed his daughter’s conservator in 2008 after the pop star was hospitalized for psychiatric treatment following a widely publicized breakdown.

Britney Spears, who became a teen phenomenon 20 years ago with hits like “…Baby One More Time” and “Toxic,” made clear last year through her lawyer that she no longer wants her father involved in her affairs.
