Embattled star Britney Spears will finally have her say in court against the conservatorship of Jamie Spears, her father, a man whom she says she doesn’t trust. She has been asking for his removal from the role from a long… time and has said that she will not perform as long as he had her conservatorship. Her lawyer has informed the court that she wishes to address this vexing issue directly.
At the proceedings, which were conducted yesterday, her lawyer Samuel Ingham told Judge Brenda Penny that the Britney Spears had requested her lawyer to seek a status hearing from the court where she could directly address the court.
Although he didn’t mention exactly what she wanted to speak about he did say that it “pertained to the status of the conservatorship.” He added that his client wished for the hearing to be done on an “expedited basis.”
The judge has set the status hearing for 1.30 p.m. PT on Wednesday, June 23. This will be the first time the 39-year old singer will speak in court after she has unsuccessful been trying to remover her father from her conservatorship.
There were several matters that had to be taken up during the virtual hearing via LACourtConnect. They included the appointment of Jodi Montgomery as the conservator of Britney’s person, a role she has been performing from 2019. There was also a hearing on contentious accounting issues.
